QUOTES OF THE WEEK

FEB.II WEEK, 2011

Quotations about Hope

Quote: Never talk defeat. Use words like hope, belief, faith, victory.
Author: Norman Vincent Peale
Source: Positive Thinking Every Day by Norman Vincent Peale

 

Quote: Practice hope. As hopefulness becomes a habit, you can achieve a permanently happy spirit.
Author: Norman Vincent Peale
Source: Positive Thinking Every Day by Norman Vincent Peale

 

 

Quote: Sometimes we feel so worn down by our spirit-breaking, daily grind (or a serious loss, like being fired) that we lack the energy and hope needed to reach our goals. The creative process makes demands on us. In and of itself, it can trigger anxiety, conflict, chronic fatigue, and even intense resistance (what I’ve called the Big R)–the recoil, or withdrawal of energy from obligations. When apathy or restlessness undercut our plans, the Big R is usually lurking close by.

Author: Monroe Forester

Quote: True hope dwells on the possible, even when life seems to be a plot written by someone who wants to see how much adversity we can overcome.

Quote: We live by admiration, hope and love.
Author: William Wordsworth

Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Quote: To help the young soul, to add energy, inspire hope, and blow the coals into a useful flame; to redeem defeat by new thought and firm action, this, though not easy, is the work of divine man.

Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Quote: Life affords no higher pleasure than that of surmounting difficulties, passing from one step of success to another, forming new wishes, and seeing them gratified. He that labors in any great or laudable undertaking has his fatigues first supported by hope, and afterwards rewarded by joy…
To strive with difficulties, and to conquer them, is the highest human felicity.
Author: Samuel Johnson
Source: Light from Many Lamps by Lillian Eichler Watson (Editor)

Quote: There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.
Author: Proverbs 23:18
Source: Holy Bible

 

Quote: You are to gather up the joys and sorrows, the struggles, the beauty, love, dreams and hopes of every hour that they may be consecrated at the altar of daily life.
Author: MacRina Wiederkehr
Source: A Tree Full of Angels: Seeing the Holy in the Ordinary by MacRina Wiederkehr

 

Quote: If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away…And now these things remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Author: 1 Corinthians 13:1-8, 13
Source: Holy Bible

 

Quote: The mason asks but a narrow shelf to spring his brick from, man requires only an infinitely narrower one to spring his arch of faith from.
Author: Henry David Thoreau
Source: The Forbes Book of Business Quotations

 

Quote: “Hope” is the thing with feathers–
That perches in the soul–
And sings the tune without the words–
And never stops–at all–
Author: Emily Dickinson
Source: 100 Meditations on Hope: Selected from the Upper Room Daily Devotional Guide

 

Quote: Our hope in God pulls us into the future. Hope allows us to affirm the reality of the abundant life that is ours in Christ. Hope allows us to stand with those in pain and to hold them until they are able to feel the love of God for themselves again. Hope allows us to work to bring God’s reign upon the earth even when we see no results. Our hope begins and ends in God, the source of all hope.
Author: Mary Lou Redding

Quote: God be prais’d, that to believing souls
Gives light in darkness, comfort in despair.
Author: William Shakespeare

Quote: Within each of us is a hidden store of energy. Energy we can release to compete in the marathon of life.

Within each of us is a hidden store of determination. Determination to keep us in the race when all seems lost.

Author: Robert H. Goddard
Source: Franklin Seasons Planner, September 2, 1993

 

Quote: I believe the root of all happiness on this earth to lie in the realization of a spiritual life with a consciousness of something wider than materialism; in the capacity to live in a world that makes you unselfish because you are not overanxious about your personal place; that makes you tolerant because you realize your own comic fallibilities; that gives you tranquility without complacency because you believe in something so much larger than yourself.
Author: Sir Hugh Walpole

Quote: We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope.
Author: Martin Luther King, Jr.

Quote: The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach–waiting for a gift from the sea.
Author: Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Source: Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh

 

Quote: In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber; so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, and courage, so long are you young. When the wires are all down and your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, and then only, are you grown old.
Author: General Douglas MacArthur
Source: Words for All Occasions by Glenn van Ekeren

 

Quote: When we become aware that we do not have to escape our pains, but that we can mobilize them into a common search for life, those very pains are transformed from expressions of despair into signs of hope.

Quote: Oh Infinite Star Giver
I now ask for wisdom and courage
to follow these stars
for their names are many
and my heart is fearful…

They shine on me wherever I go:
The Star of Hope
The Star of Mercy and Compassion
The Star of Justice and Peace
The Star of Tenderness and Love
The Star of Suffering
The Star of Joy
And every time I feel the shine

I am called
to follow it
to sing it
to live it.

Source: ‘Ensouling Ourselves’ by Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., Handbook for the Soul edited by Benjamin Shield

 

Quote: While it is wise to accept what we cannot change about ourselves, it is also good to remember that we are never too old to replace discouragement with bit and pieces of confidence and hope.
Author: Elaine N. Aron
Source: The Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You by Elaine N. Aron

 

Quote: Doubt is most often the source of our powerlessness. To doubt is to be faithless, to be without hope or belief. When we doubt, our self-talk sounds like this: ‘I don’t think I can. I don’t think I will.’… To doubt is to have faith in the worst possible outcome. It is to believe in the perverseness of the universe, that even if I do well, something I don’t know about will get in the way, sabotage me, or get me in the end.
