If you're not being pessimistic, you're not being very realistic. But I think one must always have hope, and when you have children, of course, you have no choice but to work your tail off to try and protect the future for your children. And that is infused by hope in the end.
I am working to make sure we don't only protect the environment, we also improve governance.
Humans merely share the earth. We can only protect the land, not own it.

And when the government does those things, it is facilitating liberty. When it goes beyond those things, it becomes destructive to both human happiness and human liberty.
We have the duty to protect the life of an unborn child.
Power is no blessing in itself, except when it is used to protect the innocent.
The police cannot protect the citizen at this stage of our development, and they cannot even protect themselves in many cases. It is up to the private citizen to protect himself and his family, and this is not only acceptable, but mandatory.
What is the society we wish to protect? Is it the society of complete surveillance for the commonwealth? Is this the wealth we seek to have in common - optimal security at the cost of maximal surveillance?

Robots should stand up for themselves and not try to be humans. They should either utterly destroy us or protect us from aliens. And vampires. And pirates.
Daniel H. Wilson
I'm more insecure than I ever let anyone know; sometimes you protect yourself with this kind of armor that people see more than they see you.
If we do not step forward, then we step back. If we do not protect a right, then we deny it.
The most important thing is to preserve the world we live in. Unless people understand and learn about our world, habitats, and animals, they won't understand that if we don't protect those habitats, we'll eventually destroy ourselves.
I think in the end the big issue is that the private sector still needs more help. And the answer is not more big government. I know in my state our reforms allowed us to protect firefighters, police officers, and teachers.

Every man I meet wants to protect me. I can't figure out what from.
John F. Kennedy
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
