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 am prepared for the worst, but hope for the best.benjamin disraeli
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 the feeling we have that the feeling we have is not permanent.
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
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
In all my wanderings round this world of care, In all my griefs and God has given my share I still had hopes my latest hours to crown, Amidst these humble bowers to lay me down.Oliver Goldsmith
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
Our dearest hopes in pangs are born, The kingliest Kings are crown'd with thorn.gerald massey
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
A common fallacy in much of the adverse criticism to which science is subjected today is that it claims certainty, infallibility and complete emotional objectivity. It would be more nearly true to say that it is based upon wonder, adventure and hope.Sir Cyril Norman Hinshelwood
I steer my bark with Hope in the head, leaving Fear astern. My hopes, indeed, sometimes fail; but not oftener than the forebodings of the gloomy.
I'm not talking about blind optimism, the kind of hope that just ignores the enormity of the tasks ahead or the roadblocks that stand in our path. I'm not talking about the wishful idealism that allows us to just sit on the sidelines or shirk from a fight. I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us so long as we have the courage to keep reaching, to keep working, to keep fighting.
This tree is our symbol. Our affirmation of Life, and everyone in this town gives part of their water rations to keep it alive. We've learned, administrator, that hope is a powerful weapon against anything, even drought.
The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood.Martin Luther King Jr.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.The Apostle Paul
