So be it

A quote that is simultaneously disturbing and hopeful...

"As long as there is a man who is
hated, unrecognized, ignored,

there will be something to do in life:

to draw close to him."

Cesare Pavese
Italian poet
Diary June 21, 1940



Used at the end of a prayer or a statement to express assent or approval.

[Middle English, from Old English, from Late Latin āmēn, from Greek, from Hebrew ’āmēn, certainly, verily, from ’āman, to be firm.]
