Here are some quotes that remind me that hope is possible and indeed is desirable in so many ways these days. For people, for ideas, for actions, for our whole world. My daily prayer...
'To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.' -- G.K. Chesterton
'But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough can you see the stars.' -- Martin Luther King, Jr.
'There is some good in this world, and it's worth fighting for.' -- J.R.R. Tolkien
'I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that remains.' -- Anne Frank
'Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.' -- Helen Keller
'Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.' -- Shel Silverstein
