"It's surprising how cheerful one can be

when one gives up hope."

Sir Terence, however, did not give up hope, despite the arrival of butch playwrights such as John Osborne in the 1950s.

The hopeful are endlessly destructive. It requires a great deal of courage – or misery – to abandon hope entirely.
