„To look up and not down,
To look forward and not back,
To look out and not in, — and
To lend a hand.“

—  Edward Everett Hale, Context: Why were all these salutes fired, the world over? Why was every capital illuminated? Why was there a holiday given to every school? Halfholidays had been the universal custom for years before. It was simply, you see, that a tenth part of the people in the world had shown in some way worth belief that they meant — To look up and not down, To look forward and not back, To look out and not in, — and To lend a hand.

„The kingdom of God is striving to come. The empire that looks back in terror shall give way to the kingdom that looks forward with hope.“

—  George Bernard Shaw Irish playwright 1856 - 1950
Context: The kingdom of God is striving to come. The empire that looks back in terror shall give way to the kingdom that looks forward with hope. Terror drives men mad: hope and faith give them divine wisdom. The men whom you fill with fear will stick at no evil and perish in their sin: the men whom I fill with faith shall inherit the earth. I say to you Cast out fear. Speak no more vain things to me about the greatness of Rome. … You, standing for Rome, are the universal coward: I, standing for the kingdom of God, have braved everything, lost everything, and won an eternal crown. Jesus, as portrayed in Preface, Difference Between Reader And Spectator
