Quotes & hopes,

This is a new blog, so to get the ball rolling here are some quotes. They summarize the authors’ political views. A quick bit about the authors: my friend and I are university students at St Andrews and are very interested, albeit regularly disheartened, with politics. I champion meritocracy, access to opportunity, welfare and redistribution of wealth, pacifism, and eroding inequalities or prejudices.

Here’s my selection of inspirational quotes :):

  • “I like the sun, but respect the rain”
