Hope Quotes: Better than stock quotes right now
Antoine de Saint-Exupery:
If you want to build a ship, don't herd people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work,
but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
My way of joking is to tell the truth. That's the funniest joke in the world.
Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime,
Therefore, we are saved by hope.
Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history;
Therefore, we are saved by faith.
Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone.
Therefore, we are saved by love.
No virtuous act is quite a virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as from our own;
Therefore, we are saved by the final form of love which is forgiveness.
To sit patiently with a yearning that has not yet been fulfilled, and to trust that, that fulfillment will come,
is quite possibly one of the most powerful "magic skills" that human beings are capable of. It has been noted by almost every ancient wisdom tradition.
Rita Mae Brown:
Creativity comes from trust. Trust your instincts. And never hope more than you work.
Do not depend on the hope of results. You may have to face the fact that your work will be apparently worthless and even achieve no result at all,
if not perhaps results opposite to what you expect. As you get used to this idea, you start more and more to concentrate not on the results, but on the value,
the rightness, the truth of the work itself. You gradually struggle less and less for an idea and more and more for specific people.
In the end, it is the reality of personal relationship that saves everything.
When the world says, "Give up,"
Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
