Because there’s something about hope in somebody else that generates something in you. Whenever you truly hope, you hope for everybody. You hope for those who’ve lost hope. You hope for those who have come to the brink of despair and it is through that contagious quality in hope that you are able to lift others and this is why hope is far greater than desire, which always has an “I” quality.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

But as for me, I will always have hope.
Psalm 71:14

I believe in the power of love, and I believe there is always hope.
Naomi Judd

The stars are always there but we miss them in the dirt and clouds. We miss them in the storms. Tell them to remember hope. We have hope.
To Write Love On Her Arms

Hope is a waking dream

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11

Because if you really hope, you love. And if you really hope, you have faith in something. So hope is generated and animated by love, adn it is under girded by faith.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
Helen Keller

What oxygen is to the lungs, such is hope to the meaning of life
Emil Brunner

Never confuse hope with desire. They are two different things. Desire has an “I” quality. Hope has “we” quality. And therefore genuine hope can never be selfish. You may desire a new car. you may desire to get a new beautiful outfit. You may desire to get a new beautiful house. But you hope for freedom. That has a “we” quality. You may desire sex. But you hope for peace. That has a “we” quality.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

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.
Anne Lamott

Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.
Christopher Reeve

The miserable have no other medicine. But only hope.
William Shakespeare

And this is the God that’s the ground of our hope. And I know about him. I know that he can make a way out of no way. I know about him. I know that the can transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows. I know about him. I know that he can lift you from the fatigue of despair to the buoyancy of hope. I know him. I’ve seen the lightning flash. I’ve heard the thunder roar. I’ve felt sinbreakers dashing trying to conquer my soul, but I heard the voice of Jesus saying, “Still to fight on.” He promised never to leave me, never to leave me alone. No, never alone. No, never alone. He promised to never leave me, never to leave me alone.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety.
Job 11:18

Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That’s what momma says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it’s the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up.
Hope Floats

That night I started to think about belief. Maybe it’s not even advisable to be an optimist anymore. Maybe pessimism is something we have to apply daily, like moisturizer, otherwise how do you bounce back when reality batters your belief system, and love does not, as promised, conquer all? Is hope a drug we need to go off of, or is it keeping us alive? What’s the harm in believing?
