"Amid world's challenges,
never give up.
Today's Inquirer included an essay by Mr. Bogle that was adapted from a commencement adress given at Trinity College on May 23. As I was reading I thought of how often the odds seem so hopeless that it is tempting to just give up and bail. I have long admired Mr. Bogle for his lifelong commitment to those "old school" qualities of courage, honesty, integrity, humility and service to others that are so hard to find these days. He reminded me of my late father who had always demonstrated those same qualities.
It's a good essay from a good and wise man and carries a message worth remembering when things look grim.

"To have striven, to have made the effort,
to have been true to certain ideals -
this alone is worth the struggle." William Penn
btw - there's a story that he got the title to his latest book from a conversation between Kurt Vonnegut and Joseph Heller who were attending a party hosted by a billionaire. After Vonnegut told Heller that their host earns more in a day than Heller ever earned from Catch-22, Heller said that he has something that the billionaire will never have: enough.
