"If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream."
"The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty."
"We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope."
Martin Luther King, Jr
"Hope" is the thing with feathers-- That perches in the soul-- And sings the tune without the words-- And never stops--at all--"
"We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope. But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope."
