Hope is always available to us. When we feel defeated, we need only take a deep breath and say, "Yes," and hope will reappear.
If we were logical, the future would be bleak indeed. But we are more than logical. We are human beings, and we have faith, and we have hope.
Liberty requires opportunity to make a living — a living decent according to the standard of the time, a living which gives a man not only enough to live by, but something to live for.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Hope is a state of mind, not of the world. Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success, but rather an ability to work for something because it is good.

Robert Louis Stevenson
Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give up.
