We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope.
-Martin Luther King Jr
Many of the great achievements of the world were accomplished by tired and discouraged men who kept on working.
Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others,Or strikes out against injustice, they send forth a tiny ripple of hope … and crossing each other from a million different centres of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
-Robert F Kennedy
Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence.
We should not let our fears hold us back from pursuing our hopes.
-John F Kennedy
People once considered that religions were obsolete and that material science would solve all human problems. Now, they have become disillusioned with materialism and machinery and have realised that spiritual sciences are also indispensable for human life.
"Hope is not blind optimism. Its not ignoring the enormity of the task ahead or the roadblocks that stand in our path. Its not sitting on the sidelines or shirking from a fight. Hope is that thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us if we have the courage to reach for it, and to work for it, and to fight for it....Hope is the bedrock of this nation--the belief that our destiny will not be written for us, but by us. By all those men and women who are not content to settle for the world as it is--who have the courageto remake the world as it should be. Together, ordinary people can do extraordinary things."
- Barack Obama
Hope -- Hope in the face of difficulty. Hope in the face of uncertainty. The audacity of hope! In the end, that is God’s greatest gift to us, the bedrock of this nation. A belief in things not seen. A belief that there are better days ahead.
- BARACK OBAMA, speech, 2004 DNC Convention
