The way to love someone
is to lightly run your finger over that person's soul
until you find a crack,
and then gently pour your love into that crack.

hope quotes and other thoughts

We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds.
~ Aristotle Onassis
Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us. ~ Samuel Smiles

I simply can't build my hopes on a foundation of confusion, misery and death... I think... peace and tranquillity will return again.~ Anne Frank
Hope is the dream of a waking man. ~ Aristotle

Hope in reality is the worst of all evils because it prolongs the torments of man. ~Nietzsche

A whole stack of memories never equal one little hope. 
~Charles Schulz

Hope is a state of mind, not of the world. 
Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, 
is not the same as joy that things are going well, 
or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success, 
but rather an ability to work for something because it is good. 
~ Vaclav Havel

How disappointment tracks the steps of hope. 
~LEL (Letitia Elizabeth Landon)
