“hope is worth a ton of despair”

The original quote is by George Monbiot regarding the ecosystem. Here’s the paragraph containing the quote:

                “And I think as a writer my role should be to open up people’s imagination, to inspire people to throw themselves in body and soul, and not just mind, into the question of how to reengage with and defend the natural world. Over the years I have discovered that an ounce of hope is worth a ton of despair in motivating people and that there is a lot of hope out there if we are prepared to grasp it. Not just for a less bad world than there would otherwise have been, which is generally the promise of environmentalism, but the hope of a much better world than we have today, which is the promise of rewilding.”
