“Hope is stubborn. It has the ability to accept strength and weakness. It is not arrogant; neither is it modest. Hope is daring, courageous; it has the audacity to reach a hand into darkness and come out with a handful of light.” ~Sister Stanislaus Kennedy, Gardening the Soul
“Hope springs eternal because life springs eternal, and life abounds with possibility. We have within us the capacity to change things, but only if we are willing to change ourselves. We have written the human story that now unfolds in front of us, and the only way we can change the story is if we are willing to rewrite it.” ~Marianne Williamson, marianne.com
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.
“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.”
