I am the most hopeful (though realistic) person and I thought I should pass on some quotes on hope to help spread the goodness.
Hope is the companion of power, and mother of success; for who so hopes strongly has within him the gift of miracles. ~ Samuel Smiles
Consult not your fears but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what is still possible for you to do. ~ Pope John XXIII
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, jr.
Courage is like love; it must have hope for nourishment. ~ Napoleon I
He who does not hope to win has already lost. ~ Jose' Joaquin Olmedo
Hope is the last thing ever lost. ~ Italian Proverb
