Hope is a state of mind independent of the state of the world. If your heart's full of hope, you can be persistent when you can't be optimistic. You can keep the faith despite the evidence, knowing that only in so doing has the evidence any chance of changing. So while I'm not optimistic, I'm always very hopeful.William Sloane Coffin
I hope people learn to appreciate our people in uniform. These aren't guys who just shoot 'em up. They plan. And they are extremely intelligent.Thomas Leo Clancy Jr.
There is something sadder to lose than life the reason for living; Sadder than to lose one's possessions is to lose one's hope.Paul Claudel
Man is a creature of hope and invention, both of which believe the idea that things cannot be changed.Thomas Leo Clancy Jr.
While the sick man has life, there is hope.Marcus Tullius Cicero
Human nature simply cannot subsist without a hope and aim of some kind; as the sanity of the Old Testament truly said, where there is no vision the people perisheth. But it is precisely because an ideal is necessary to man that the man without ideals is in permanent danger of fanaticism.Gilbert Keith Chesterton
Life is meaningless only if we allow it to be. Each of us has the power to give life meaning, to make our time and our bodies and our words into instruments of love and hope.Tom Head
My darling one....I shall be thinking of you while you are away and hope you will remember to wrap up warm when you go out at night.Anthony Burgess

Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream.George Walker Bush
In the long term, weve got to defeat an ideology of hate with an ideology of hope. Theres a reason why people like (al-Qaida leader Osama) bin Laden are able to recruit suiciders, because if you dont have hope, youre attracted to an ideology which says, its OK to kill people and kill yourself.George Walker Bush
The prosperity, and social vitality and technological progress of a people are directly determined by the extent of their liberty. Freedom honors and unleashes human creativity and creativity determines the strength and wealth of nations. Liberty is both the plan of Heaven for humanity, and the best hope for progress here on Earth.George Walker Bush
For decades, the circle of liberty and security and development has been expanding in our world. This progress has brought unity to Europe, self-government to Latin America and Asia, and new hope to Africa. Now we have the historic chance to widen the circle even further, to fight radicalism and terror with justice and dignity, to achieve a true peace, founded on human freedom.George Walker Bush
Education is spreading hope. Millions are now learning to live with HIV/AIDS instead of waiting to die from it.Laura Welch Bush
Never hope to conceal any shameful thing which you have done; for even if you do conceal it from others, your own heart will know. Pursue the enjoyments which are of good repute; for pleasure attended by honor is the best thing in the world, but pleasure without honor is the worst.Isocrates
