Cantina Quote o' The Week: Carl Sagan (Yes, Again)

...It is here that we are, in some pain and with no guarantees, working out our destiny.

-Carl Sagan

Some people may find that a rather grim, depressing quote, but it's uplifting to me.  No, we haven't got any guarantees.  Yes, there is pain.  But only some.  And we're the ones working out our destiny.  That means we get to choose the direction we go, and that's a hopeful thing indeed.
