Dreams and Hope

“Hold fast to dreams, 

For if dreams die, 

Life is a broken-winged bird,

 That cannot fly.”

Langston Hughes

 

“Hope is the physician of each misery.”  ~Irish Proverb

 

“Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul 

And sings the tune without the words

And never stops at all.”

 Emily Dickinson

 

“The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.”― Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams

 

“We dream to give ourselves hope. To stop dreaming – well, that’s like saying you can never change your fate.”― Amy Tan, The Hundred Secret Senses

 

“Strange as it may seem, I still hope for the best, even though the best, like an interesting piece of mail, so rarely arrives, and even when it does it can be lost so easily.”― Lemony Snicket, The Beatrice Letters

 

“We all hope. It’s what keeps us alive.”-David Mamet,, Playwright

 

“I think it’s a mistake to ever look for hope outside of one’s self.”-Arthur Miller, Playwright

 

“Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.”  ~Christopher Reeve
