Let's calm down about the elections. The world will keep spinning and the sun will come up tomorrow. Where do I go when hope feels absent? Good literature.

And for us this is the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.”
-C.S. Lewis "The Last Battle"
