Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Still, quoting ARGeezer's sig line quoting the embattled Dutch:

     "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."

This is actually a quote from William of Orange, (yes, a Dutch) who is reported to have said: "One need not hope in order to undertake, nor succeed in order to persevere."

(Often reported in its original French: "Point n'est espérer pour entreprendre, ni de réussir pour persévérer".
