„I think that a good person can sometimes do wrong out of ignorance or weakness or wrong thinking, but when hard times come, the goodness wins out after all. And a bad person can often seem good and trustworthy for a long time, but when hard times come, the evil in him gets revealed.“

—  Orson Scott Card, Chapter 14.

„The basic message of Gunsmoke was that there's going to be the bad and there's going to be the good. And most of the time, the good will win out.“

—  Dennis Weaver American actor 1924 - 2006
Context: The basic message of Gunsmoke was that there's going to be the bad and there's going to be the good. And most of the time, the good will win out. That's an old theme. There are no new themes, it's just the way you do them. It's the way you bring fresh characters to that theme.

„There’s a good time coming, boys!
A good time coming.“

—  Charles Mackay British writer 1814 - 1889
Context: There’s a good time coming, boys! A good time coming. We may not live to see the day, But earth shall glisten in the ray Of the good time coming. Cannon-balls may aid the truth But thought’s a weapon stronger; We’ll win our battles by its aid, Wait a little longer. "The Good Time Coming".
