plaque 1: Tomorrow is a wonderful vision you had today. / It begins in contemplation and in courage, it / meets the light of Glasgow past and present, / and is somehow sharpened by it, joining with / the vision of others to make a brand new way of seeing. / Andrew O'Hagan; plaque 2: Hope is Black Lives Matter. Hope is MeToo. Hope is my son / and my daughter. Hope is a girl called Greta. / Hope is the colour of the future. / Jackie Kay; plaque 3: The streets will be full again / The music good again / The gentle will rule again / And the lover will be human / The fools will be found out / The lies will be drowned out / The sun had its practise / A lifetime of rising / Sean Lionadh Plaque 4: Bi dochasach! Na coimhead / air na duilgheadasan a tha / ri thighinn, ach an fheadhainn / a that sinn air ceannsachadh. / Casey Shirley, Aois 11 / Beacon of Hope by Steuart Padwick
