The good Lord in his infinite wisdom gave us three things to make life bearable—hope, jokes, and dogs.
What gives me the most hope every day is God's grace; knowing that his grace is going to to give me strength for whatever I face, knowing that nothing is a surprise to God.
Hope is the heartbeat of the soul.
I'm not an optimist. I'm a prisoner of hope.
Hope is a choice.
What breath is to the physical body, hope is to the human spirit. Hope is what consoles us. It is the fuel that energizes us, gets us up in the morning, and propels us through the day.
We connect with God in our humanity.... This is almost all I ever need to remember. Gravity and sadness yank us down, and hope gives us a nudge to help one another get back up or to sit with the fallen on the ground.
Cynicism is irresponsible. Having hope is a much more healthy way to live.
Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come.
There’s nothing more beautiful than a smart girl.
The most fruitful trees are family trees.
Your dreams are worth their weight in gold hoop earrings.
