That star on life's tremulous ocean.

Oh! ever thus, from childhood's hour,
  I've seen my fondest hopes decay;
    I never loved a tree or flower,
      But 'twas the first to fade away.
      - Thomas Moore,
        Lalla Rookh--Fire Worshippers

Hope is our life when first our life grows clear,
  Hope and delight, scarce crossed by lines of fear:
    Yet the day comes when fain we would not hope--
      But forasmuch as we with life must cope,
        Struggling with this and that--and who knows why?
          Hope will not give us up to certainty,
            But still must bide with us.
      - William Morris (1)

With a mind not diseased, a holy life is a life of hope; and at the end of it, death is a great act of hope.

Hope does not disappoint.
      - Saint Paul (originally Saul) ("Apostle to the Gentiles")

Things which you don't hope happen more frequently than things which you do hope.
      - Plautus (Titus Maccius Plautus)

For I know that many good things have happened to many, when least expected; and that many hopes have been disappointed.
  [Lat., Nam multa praeter spem scio multis bona evenisse,
    At ego etiam qui speraverint, spem decepisse multos.]
