A friend asked me out to lunch several months back. He is in the solar business. Anyone in that business frequently finds themselves questioning what to heck they are doing.

He had read my writings and my books, and he wanted to know where my hope comes from. I don't remember what I told him, but I do know what I feel right now.

Hope comes from the Heart.

All human wisdom is summed up in two words - wait and hope.
--Alexander Dumas

Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again
--Sarah Ban Breathnach

Listen now to the gentle whispers of hope.
--Charles D. Brodhead

While there's life, there's hope!
--Ancient Roman Saying

Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul And sings the tune without the words And never stops at all.
--Emily Dickenson

The very least you can do in your life is to 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

True hope dwells on the possible, even when life seems to be a plot written by someone who wants to see how much adversity we can overcome True hope responds to the real world, to real life; it is an active effort
--Walter Anderson

Hope is necessary in every condition. The miseries of poverty, sickness and captivity would, without this comfort, be insupportable.
--Samuel Johnson

We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope.
--Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Everything that is done in the world is done by hope.
--Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning.
--Albert Einstein

Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense regardless of how it turns out.
--Vaclav Havel

Your hopes, dreams and aspirations are legitimate. They are trying to take you airborne, above the clouds, above the storms, if you only let them.
--William James

We should not let our fears hold us back from pursuing our hopes.
--John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Every area of trouble gives out a ray of hope; and the one unchangeable certanity is that nothing is certain or unchangeable.
--John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Hope for the best but prepare for the worst.
--English Proverb

We cannot live our lives without hope and heart.

And we cannot live our lives blindly and thoughtlessly.

For our minds are a strong sword.

And our Heart is an infinite well.
