Anything should seem impossible to change

Golden Rule, Norman RockwellNothing is impossible to change
Bertold Brecht

Distrust the more trivial, in appearance simple.

And examine, above all, what seems habitual.

We begged expressly:

don't accept what is of habit as a natural thing,

because in time of bloody disorder,

of organized confusion,

of conscious outrage,

of unmerciful humanity,

nothing should seem natural,

anything should seem impossible to change.

Adoro os desenhos do Norman Rockwell! E a esperança que o poema de Brecht exprime. Haja fé!
