"But we live in times which offer extraordinary opportunities for human advancement. In that sense, I am a happy optimist about the human condition.

"After the pain, the suffering, the hopelessness and desolation, the tombs are open in the graveyard of hope. Where we experienced despair and death, new life is flooding in. There is hope.
