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)
If thy hope be any thing worth, it will purify thee from thy sins.joseph alleine
But what is Hope? Nothing but the paint on the face of Existence. The least touch of truth rubs it off, and then we see what a hollow-cheeked harlot we have got hold of.
As the days of spring arouse all nature to a green and growing vitality, so when hope enters the soul it makes all things new. It insures the progress which it predicts. Rooted in faith, growing up into love; these make the three immortal graces of the Gospel, whose intertwined arms and concurrent voices shed joy and peace over our human life.james freeman clarke
Although I do not hope to turn again Although I do not hope Although I do not hope to turn
I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.
Hope of consciousness is strength Hope of feelings is slavery Hope of body is disease.
Beware how you take away hope from any human being.
If you've lost your faith in love and music, the end won't be long
But Hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has?
Now, there remain faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Hope humbly then; with trembling pinions soar; Wait the great teacher, Death, and God adore; What future bliss He gives not thee to know, But gives that hope to be thy blessing now.Alexander Pope
Fear cannot be without hope nor hope without fear.
It is not necessary to succeed in order to persevere. As long as there is a margin of hope, however narrow, we have no choice but to base all our actions on that margin. America and Russia have one interest in common which may override all their other interests: to be able to live with the bomb without getting into an all-out war that neither of them wants.
Confiding, though confounded; hoping on, Untaught by trial, unconvinced by proof, And ever looking for the never-seen.Edward Young
The heart bowed down by weight of woe To weakest hope will cling.alfred bunn
But thou, O Hope, with eyes so fair, What was thy delighted measure? Still it whisper'd promised pleasure, And bade the lovely scenes at distance hail!william collins
Hope! of all ills that men endure, The only cheap and universal cure.Abraham Cowley
In all the wedding cake, hope is the sweetest of the plums.
Who bids me Hope, and in that charming word Has peace and transport to my soul restor'd.
For the living there is hope, for the dead there is none.
Mothers observe all, absorb all, give all, forgive all, offer all, suffer all, feel all, heal all, hope for all, pray for all. But most of all, Mothers love always.Richelle E. Goodrich
