Our heart's where they rocked our cradle, Our love where we spent our toil, And our faith, and our hope, and our honour We pledge to our native soil!
The Native-Born (1894)
I live in hope and that I think do all Who come into this world.robert bridges
I am prepared for the worst, but hope for the best.benjamin disraeli
Until the day when God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words, Wait and hope.alexandre dumas
Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.
Hope is the best possession. None are completely wretched but those who are without hope; and few are reduced so low as that.william hazlitt
Hope is necessary in every condition. The miseries of poverty, sickness and captivity would, without this comfort, be insupportable.samuel johnson
Yet it is necessary to hope, though hope should always be deluded, for hope itself is happiness, and its frustrations, however frequent, are yet less dreadful than its extinction.samuel johnson
Hope is itself a species of happiness, and, perhaps, the chief happiness which this world affords.
Hope is the feeling we have that the feeling we have is not permanent.
Hope for the best and prepare for the worst.
In the factory, we make cosmetics; in the store we sell hope.
Life and hope for the world are to be found only in the deeds of love.bertrand russell
Farewell The hopes of court! my hopes in heaven do dwell.william shakespeare
Cold hopes swarm like worms within our living clay.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Imagine a man who doesn't believe in anything, hope for anything, doesn't love anyone. This is a description of a dead or paralyzed soul. This happens from great grief, or from an unhappy upbringing when parents make from their children's souls paralytics.simon soloveychik
Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it.
Cease, every joy, to glimmer in my mind, But leave, oh! leave the light of Hope behind!thomas campbell
The wretch condemn'd with life to part, Still, still on hope relies; And every pang that rends the heart Bids expectation rise.Oliver Goldsmith
Youth fades; love droops, the leaves of friendship fall; A mother's secret hope outlives them all.
Our dearest hopes in pangs are born, The kingliest Kings are crown'd with thorn.gerald massey
Where peace And rest can never dwell, hope never comes, That comes to all.john milton
Soulmates aren’t the ones who make you happiest, no. They’re instead the ones who make you feel the most. Burning edges and scars and stars. Old pangs, captivation and beauty. Strain and shadows and worry and yearning. Sweetness and madness and dreamlike surrender. They hurl you into the abyss. They taste like hope.Victoria Erikson
