The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.
(Barbara Kingsolver)

Your hopes, dreams and inspirations are legitimate. They are trying to take you airborne, above the clouds, above the storms, if you only let them.
(William James)

Every area of trouble gives out a ray of hope; and the one unchangeable certainty is that nothing is certain or unchangeable.
(John F. Kennedy)

Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams..Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.
(Pope John XXIII)

Hope sees the invisible, feel the intangible and achieves the impossible.
(Charles Caleb Colton)

Hope is like a bird that senses dawn and carefully starts to sing while it is still dark.

Hope never abandons you; you abandon it.
(George Weinberg)

Hope is putting faith to work when doubting would be easier.

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
(Albert Camus)

Hope is faith holding out its hand in the dark.
(George Iles)

Hope is believing in spite of the evidence, then watching the evidence change.
(Jim Wallis)

Hope, like the gleaming taper’s light,
Adorns and cheers our way;
And still, as darker grows the night,
Emits a brighter ray.
(Oliver Goldsmith)

Sometimes our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter. Who would think that those branches would turn green again and blossom, but we hope it, we know it.
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

Hope is not a dream but a way of making dreams become reality.
(LJ Suenens)

In silence and in hope shall be our strength.

As long as we have hope, we have direction, the energy to move, and the map to move by. We have a hundred alternatives, a thousand paths and an infinity of dreams.

In this world of darkest night
Where hope is hurled away
There they are
And still there's light
Oh so far
But will they...?
Dare they lift our hearts
As we lift our eyes
Are we fools to see
The hope that's gleaming in the skies?
There's the light!
Stars in the night!
(Barry Manilow, Bruce Sussman)
