And it is worth fighting for

- "It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really matter, full of darkness & danger they were. Sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was, when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it'll shine out the clearer. Those are the stories that stayed with you. They meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I now know, folks in those stories had lots of chances to turn back, but they didn't. They kept going because they were holding onto something."

- "What are we holding onto, Sam?"

- "There's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it's worth fighting for."

-- The Lord of the Rings

    whatever good is left is indeed worth fighting for...and more importantly we need to find a reactor that can create more such happy, good things endlessly.
