"Glimpses of optimistic headlines as they go up in smoke."

Author George Orwell wrote this thought provoking entry on October 19 1940 (a year into World War II):

The unspeakable depression of lighting the fires every morning with papers of a year ago, and getting glimpses of optimistic headlines as they go up in smoke.
