Barack Obama is big on ‘Hope’ 

What have others said about ‘Hope’?

Hope calculates its scenes for a long and durable life; presses forward to imaginary points of bliss; and grasps at impossibilities; and consequently very often ensnares men into beggary, ruin and dishonor.

~Joseph Addison

 But what is Hope? Nothing but the paint on the face of Existence; the least touch of truth rubs it off, and then we see what a hollow-cheeked harlot we have got hold of.

Lord (George Gordon) Byron, (1975)

 He who despairs over an event is a coward, but he who holds hope for the human condition is a fool.

~Albert Camus,  The Rebel (1951)

 He that lives upon hope will die fasting.

~ Benjamin Franklin

 Wishing, of all employments, is the worst.

~Edward Young

 I can endure my own despair,  but not another’s hope.

~William Walsh

 Hope was the final excuse, worthy of the Gods themselves, for failing to act in one’s own behalf.

In reality, hope is the worst of all evils, because it prolongs man’s torments.  ~Friedrich Nietzsche,

~Author Unknown

There is nothing so well known as that we should not expect something for nothing – but we all do and call it Hope.

If you knew that hope and despair were paths to the same destination, which would you choose?
