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

Lord save us all from a hope tree that has lost the faculty of putting out blossoms.
Mark Twain

Hope is the dream of a waking man.

Courage is like love; it must have hope for nourishment.
Napoleon Bonaparte

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
Helen Keller

A leader is a dealer in hope.

There is hope for the future because God has a sense of humor and we are funny to God.
Bill Cosby

We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Emily Dickinson

Elbert Hubbard

While there’s life, there’s hope.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Hope is the word which God has written on the brow of every man.
Victor Hugo

Many believe – and I believe – that I have been designated for this work by God. In spite of my old age, I do not want to give it up; I work out of love for God and I put my hope in Him.

To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

Our imagination is the only limit to what we can hope to have in the future.
Charles Kettering

The capacity for hope is the most significant fact of life. It provides human beings with a sense of destination and the energy to get started.
Norman Cousins

A strong mind always hopes, and has always cause to hope.
Thomas Carlyle

Man is, properly speaking, based upon hope, he has no other possession but hope; this world of his is emphatically the place of hope.
Thomas Carlyle

There is no despair so absolute as that which comes with the first moments of our first great sorrow, when we have not yet known what it is to have suffered and be healed, to have despaired and have recovered hope.
George Eliot

But what we call our despair is often only the painful eagerness of unfed hope.
George Eliot

To live without Hope is to Cease to live.
Fyodor Dostoevsky

Where there is no vision, there is no hope.
George Washington Carver

Just as despair can come to one only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings.
Elie Wiesel

I tremble for my country when I hear of confidence expressed in me. I know too well my weakness, that our only hope is in God.
Robert E. Lee

Little progress can be made by merely attempting to repress what is evil. Our great hope lies in developing what is good.
Calvin Coolidge

He is the best physician who is the most ingenious inspirer of hope.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The essence of optimism is that it takes no account of the present, but it is a source of inspiration, of vitality and hope where others have resigned; it enables a man to hold his head high, to claim the future for himself and not to abandon it to his enemy.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something better tomorrow.
Orison Swett Marden

I place no hope in my strength, nor in my works: but all my confidence is in God my protector, who never abandons those who have put all their hope and thought in him.
Francois Rabelais

Hope is patience with the lamp lit.

Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again.
Sarah Ban Breathnach

Hoe is the pillar that holds up the world. Hope is the dream of a waking man.
Pliny the Elder

Even if the hopes you started out with are dashed, hope has to be maintained.
Seamus Heaney

  2. The True Light!

    Some great quotes in here!



  3. Powerful. Am saving these!!


  4. These are wonderful quotes on hope, Bill. My favorite was the one by Bill Cosby. God surely must have the greatest sense of humor–I know it helps me with parenting. Hope is my word for 2014. It is powerful and so necessary to keep on keeping on.

    Blessings ~ Wendy ❀


  5. How are you brother…


  6. These are beautiful quotes! Thank you so much for sharing them. Your blogs are so inspiring as is your life and all that God has done and is doing through you. Your faith in God and hope and trust in His faithfulness despite your suffering and many health challenges inspires and encourages my faith far more than you will ever know. Your life is a blessing on this earth. I thank The Lord for you. You are in my prayers~ God bless you always! ~Suzanne 🙂


  7. “Now, Faith is the substance of things Hoped for, it is the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
    Greetings Unshakeable Hope,
    I pray that you are well at that The Lord is giving you the desires of your heart, as He continues to teach you what to desire.
    Grace and Peace be with you always.


  8. Bill, you are in my thoughts and prayers. And this… “Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all they have. — H. Jackson Brown, Jr.” Prayers… – Amy 🙂


  9. Interesting quotes. I would add one that has immensely helped me understand faith: “The opposite of faith is not doubt but fear.”
    – Philip Yancy
    Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog.


  10. i am a child that have lost hope because i had alot of failures in my life and alot of unhappiness in my life. i just wish that hope would return in my life.


    • I am sorry for the failures and unhappiness you’ve experienced. The fact that “wish” hope would return to your life is a great sign – people who hope for hope still believe that hope is attainable. I pray that your hope would increase.


  11. This is so good! I had to come in and read it! My Best friend (Terri) is having brain surgery today… if you have a prayer chain or two… I’d really appreciate putting her her on it! The surgery will be at noon and is 6 hours long. She has had cancer twice and keeps beating it. The first was stage 3 breast 14 years ago and last one was stage 4 Ovarian 4 years ago… The doctors keep shaking their heads each time she survives. She is a believer but very angry. We are wondering if some of it was from her brain tumors now. Anyway I wanted to share with you today. I know you are a prayer warrior and believe in miracles!


    • It’s good to hear from you, Diane. It’s also a big coincidence because I am on your blog right now! I am so sorry about your friend; she’s had a rough time of it! I will be praying for her. Please let me know how the surgery goes.


      • Funny how that works! I was talking about how wonderful an old friend of mine was that I hadn’t seen for at least 3 or 4 years and she walked in my work a few hours later! 🙂
        I have not been on for a while! I need to stop and get inspired! You are always in my prayers Bill! Thanks for yours for Terri! I will let you know! I am believing in a miracle! Just as I am for you!!!!

    • I like that, Beth. Thanks!


      • I love to meditate on the attributes of our God. It’s like enjoying a beautiful day, and then the sun comes out even more, when you didn’t realize it had been holding back. 🙂

        I have to say, Bill, I’ve been on your blog a few times, and neglected to post anything. The reason is simple. I REALLY get lost in thought when I read your blog. (That’s a truth. Flattery is unbiblical.) You challenge me and make me think.

        Your posts have great depth and spiritual value. They are of the type that really linger, because they deepen my understanding.

        Thank you very much for sharing your Godly insights.

        Shalom in your home! 🙂 Beth
