Hope Quotes


Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.

Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.

You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will live as one.

For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.

I like the night. Without the dark, we'd never see the stars.

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.

If you're reading this...
Congratulations, you're alive.
If that's not something to smile about,
then I don't know what is.

They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.

Happiness    Hope    Joy    Love    Wishing

There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, Morrel, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.
" Live, then, and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget, that until the day God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words, 'Wait and Hope.

The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.

You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.

Life's under no obligation to give us what we expect.

But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough can you see the stars.

Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.

The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.

Hope
Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering 'it will be happier'...

The very least you can do in your life is 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.

It's amazing how a little tomorrow can make up for a whole lot of yesterday.

Tears shed for another person are not a sign of weakness. They are a sign of a pure heart.

I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.

You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.

In a time of destruction, create something.

Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there's no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.

I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.

When you have lost hope, you have lost everything. And when you think all is lost, when all is dire and bleak, there is always hope.

We dream to give ourselves hope. To stop dreaming - well, that’s like saying you can never change your fate.

Dream    Fate    Hope

to love life, to love it even
when you have no stomach for it
and everything you've held dear
crumbles like burnt paper in your hands,
your throat filled with the silt of it.
When grief sits with you, its tropical heat
thickening the air, heavy as water
more fit for gills than lungs;
when grief weights you like your own flesh
only more of it, an obesity of grief,
you think, How can a body withstand this?
Then you hold life like a face
between your palms, a plain face,
no charming smile, no violet eyes,
and you say, yes, I will take you
I will love you, again.

Hope is a waking dream.

This is where it all begins. Everything starts here, today.

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.

The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd - The longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are.

I used to think I was the strangest person in the world
but then I thought, there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do
I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too.
well, I hope that if you are out there you read this and know that yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.

If you can love someone with your whole heart, even one person, then there's salvation in life. Even if you can't get together with that person.

A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it's the most painful thing you'll ever have to do and that you've ever done. But what's yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands. And one day, it'll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time, you won't have to put it back in the sky again.

When it was dark, you always carried the sun in your hand for me.

We are all the pieces of what we remember. We hold in ourselves the hopes and fears of those who love us. As long as there is love and memory, there is no true loss.

My life is a perfect graveyard of buried hopes.

P.S., I Love You

Part of the problem with the word 'disabilities' is that it immediately suggests an inability to see or hear or walk or do other things that many of us take for granted. But what of people who can't feel? Or talk about their feelings? Or manage their feelings in constructive ways? What of people who aren't able to form close and strong relationships? And people who cannot find fulfillment in their lives, or those who have lost hope, who live in disappointment and bitterness and find in life no joy, no love? These, it seems to me, are the real disabilities.

Remember, Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.

We need never be hopeless because we can never be irreperably broken.

I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one's head pointed toward the sun, one's feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.

The road that is built in hope is more pleasant to the traveler than the road built in despair, even though they both lead to the same destination.

The first duty of a man is to think for himself

For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.

TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.
What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.
