(Whispers – Kira  Westland)

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
Barbara Kingsolver

If you lose hope,
somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving,
you lose that courage to be,
that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all.
And so today I still have a dream.
Martin Luther King

The best way to not feel hopeless
is to get up and do something.
Don’t wait for good things to happen to you.
If you go out and make some good things happen,
you will fill the world with hope,
you will fill yourself with hope.
Barack Obama

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.
J.R.R. Tolkien

  1. That was great to see – the first is actually my best friend’s favorite quote. I was thinking today how, no matter how old I get, I want to always have hope, dreams, and approach new situations with excitement and faith for the future. I notice the older one gets the harder that can be in certain situations, but I suppose it is can only make one better to hold out for hope when it seems most difficult. Thanks!

  3. Hope
    Hope is the thing with feathers
    That perches in the soul,
    And sings the tune–without the words,
    And never stops at all…
    Emily Dickinson

  4. Hope is seeing
    But without looking
    It’s longing
    Without longing
    It’s perceiving
    It’s knowing
    That things will be
    That’s the faith
    I’ve in hope
