Hope awakens courage. He who can implant courage in the human soul is the best physician.
      - Karl von Knebel

True hope is based on the energy of character. A strong mind always hopes, and has always cause to hope, because it knows the mutability of human affairs, and how slight a circumstance may change the whole course of events. Such a spirit, too, rests upon itself; it is not confined to partial views or to one particular object. And if at last all should be lost, it has saved itself.
      - Karl von Knebel

Hope is love's happiness, but not its life.
      - Letitia Elizabeth Landon (Mrs. George MacLean)

Hope is the mother of faith.
      - Walter Savage Landor

However deceitful hope may be, yet she carries us on pleasantly to the end of life.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

Hope, deceitful as it is, serves at least to lead us to the end of life along an agreeable road.
  [Fr., L' esperance, toute trompeuse qu'elle est, sert au moins a nous mener a la fin de la vie par un chemin agreable.]
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld, Maximes
         (168)

The very fact that possibilities are unknown gives scope to unbridled fancy and the wildest hopes.
      - Agnes Laut

We shall nobody save or meanly lose the last best hope.
      - Abraham Lincoln

One only hope my heart can cheer,--
  The hope to meet again.
      - George Linley, Song

Hope is that pleasure of the mind which every one finds in himself upon the thought of a probable future enjoyment of a thing which is apt to delight him.
      - John Locke (1)

Hope has as many lives as a cat or a king.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The mighty hopes that make us men.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The setting of a great hope is like the setting of the sun. The brightness of our life is gone.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Hyperion
         (bk. I, ch. I)

Races, better than we, have leaned on her wavering promise,
  Having naught else but Hope.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
        The Children of the Lord's Supper
         (l. 230)

All which happens in the whole world happens through hope. No husbandman would sow a grain of corn if he did not hope it would spring up and bring forth the ear. How much more are we helped on by hope in the way to eternal life!
      - Martin Luther

Where the mind is past hope, the heart is past shame.
      - John Lyly (Lylie or Lyllie)

Who bids me Hope, and in that charming word
  Has peace and transport to my soul restor'd.
      - Lord George Lyttelton, 1st Baron Lyttelton ("The Good Lord Lyttelton"),
        The Progress of Love--Hope
         (eclogue II, l. 41)

While life remains it is well.
  [Lat., Vita dum superest, bene est.]
      - Caius Cilnius Maecenas,
        quoted by Seneca, "Epist.", 101

Hope says to us constantly, "Go on, go on," and leads us thus to the grave.
      - Mme. Francoise d'Aubigne de Maintenon

Our dearest hopes in pangs are born,
  The kingliest Kings are crown'd with thorn.
      - Gerald Massey, The Kingliest Kings

Hope proves man deathless. It is the struggle of the soul, breaking loose from what is perishable and attesting her eternity.
      - Henry Melvill

Hope is the struggle of the soul, breaking loose from what is perishable, and attesting her eternity.
      - Herman Melville

Where no hope is left, is left no fear.
      - John Milton

What reinforcement we may gain from hope;
  If not, what resolution from despair.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 190)

Where peace
  And rest can never dwell, hope never comes,
    That comes to all.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 65)
