Our hope of immortality does not come from any religions, but nearly all religions come from that hope
Religion. A daughter of Hope and Fear, explaining to Ignorance the nature of the Unknowable.
Youth lives on hope, old age on remembrance
Youth fades; love droops; the leaves of friendship fall; a mother's secret hope outlives them all!
We are missing something. Our youth today is empty. No longer do the children dream and believe they can change the world. Apathy has destroyed the beautiful idealism of our youth. The intricate illusions and fearless aspirations. The gleam in a child's eye. God help us. All hope is truly lost.

A man with a grain of faith in God never loses hope, because he ever believes in the ultimate triumph of Truth
Faith is not simply a patience that passively suffers until the storm is past. Rather, it is a spirit that bears things - with resignations, yes, but above all, with blazing, serene hope.

If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.
One should rather die than be betrayed. There is no deceit in death. It delivers precisely what it has promised. Betrayal, though ... betrayal is the willful slaughter of hope.
Hope is itself a species of happiness, and, perhaps, the chief happiness which this world affords: but, like all other pleasures immoderately enjoyed, the excesses of hope must be expiated by pain; and expectations improperly indulged must end in disappointment.
The sudden disappointment of a hope leaves a scar which the ultimate fulfilment of that hope never entirely removes.
Let us all hope that the dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away and the deep fog of misunderstanding will be lifted from our fear-drenched communities, and in some not too distant tomorrow the radiant stars of love and brotherhood will shine over our great nation with all their scintillating beauty.
As great scientists have said and as all children know, it is above all by the imagination that we achieve perception, and compassion, and hope
I hope you have not been leading a double life, pretending to be wicked and being really good all the time. That would be hypocrisy.
He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything
In the hope of reaching the moon men fail to see the flowers that blossom at their feet.
