It is above all by the imagination that we achieve perception and compassion and hope.
Ursula K. LeGuin quotes
Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it. Let me not look for allies in life’s battlefield but to my own strength. Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved but hope for the patience to win my freedom. Grant me that I may not be a coward, feeling your mercy in my success alone; But let me find the grasp of your hand in my failure.
Rabindranath Tagore quotes
My theory has always been, that if we are to dream, the flatteries of hope are as cheap, and pleasanter, than the gloom of despair.
Thomas Jefferson quotes
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.
Peter F. Drucker quotes
Hope...is the companion of power, and the mother of success; for who so hopes has within him the gift of miracles.
Samuel Smiles quotes
Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime; therefore we must be saved by hope. Nothing true or beautiful makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore, we are saved by love.
Reinhold Niebuhr quotes
Above all, we must abolish hope in the heart of man. A calm despair, without angry convulsions, without reproaches to Heaven, is the essence of wisdom.
Alfred Victor Vigny quotes
We hope that, when the insects take over the world, they will remember with gratitude how we took them along on all our picnics.
Bill Vaughn quotes
I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.
Dalai Lama quotes
