Meaning of Hope is a horrible thing, you know. I don’t know who decided to package hope as a virtue because it’s not. It’s a plague. Hope is like walking around with a fishhook in your mouth and somebody just keeps pulling it and pulling it. Quote by Ann Patchett.
It was a pity that people did not risk enough to speak out in behalf of one another’s happiness and their own.
As concerning the things whereof thou asked me, I will tell thee; for the evil is sown, but the destruction thereof is not yet come.
Some people live their memorable years fighting against their basic instincts only to succumb in the end to what was actually good for them.
People are just too hopeful, and sometimes hope is the biggest weapon of all to use against us. People will believe anything.
Nobody can really guarantee the future. The best we can do is size up the chances, calculate the risks involved, estimate our ability to deal with them and make our plans with confidence.
