Hope is...

For he who has health has hope; and he who has hope, has everything.

Hope is the second soul of the unhappy.

Extreme hopes are born of extreme misery.

Strong hope is a much greater stimulant of life than any single realized joy could be.

Hope is like a path in the countryside: originally there was no path - - yet, as people are walking all the time in the same spot, a way appears.

Don't lose hope.  When the sun goes down, the stars come out.
