1,032.  Faith is a myth and beliefs shift like mists on the shore; thoughts vanish; words, once pronounced, die; and the memory of yesterday is as shadowy as the hope of to-morrow.  (Faith & Myth & Belief & Think & Words & Memory & Hope)  Joseph Conrad

 

 

80,552.  Sons of businessmen and daughters of officials got a head start that was equivalent to an entire lap or two around the track.  I think it is inevitable that people like me would lose the race.  So that made me think, why do I even try?  (Hope & China)  Zhiyuan Zhang, replying to Insider Asia, follower of ‘lying flat movement’

2,683.  An extraterrestrial being, newly arrived on Earth – scrutinizing what we mainly present to our children in television, radio, movies, newspapers, magazines, the comics, and many books – might easily conclude that we are intent on teaching them murder, rape, cruelty, superstition, credulity, and consumerism.  We keep at it, and through constant repetition many of them finally get it.  What kind of society could we create if, instead, we drummed into them science and a sense of hope?  (Science & Teaching & Society & Hope)  Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

44,757.  If you’re working 50 hours a week to try to maintain family income, and your children have the kinds of aspirations that come from being flooded with television from age one, and associations have declined, people end up hopeless, even though they have every option.  (Television & Hope)  Noam Chomsky

 

 

50,488.  Just when I had made my today

Secure with safe yesterdays

62,414.  Activism doesn’t give up.  Activism doesn’t fall silent.  Activism doesn’t rely on the opiate of hope.  Woody Allen once said, ‘I felt a lot better when I gave up hope’.  Real activism has little time for identity politics, which like exceptionalism can be fake.  These are distractions that confuse and sucker good people.  (Activism & Hope & Advice & Life’s Like That)  John Pilger, Socialism Chicago 2009, Power Illusion and America’s Last Taboo; viz also website

 

 

66,671.  Charity is the power of defending that which we know to be indefensible.  Hope is the power of being cheerful in circumstances which we know to be desperate.  It is true that there is a state of hope which belongs to bright prospects and the morning; but that is not the virtue of hope.  The virtue of hope exists only in earthquake and eclipse.  It is true that there is a thing crudely called charity, which means charity to the deserving poor; but charity to the deserving is not charity at all, but justice.  It is the undeserving who require it, and the ideal either does not exist at all, or exists wholly for them.  For practical purposes it is at the hopeless moment that we require the hopeful man, and the virtue either does not exist at all, or begins to exist at that moment.  Exactly at the instant when hope ceases to be reasonable it begins to be useful.  (Charity & Hope)  G K Chesterton, Heretics

69,779.  Hope is the denial of reality.  (Denial & Hope & Reality)  Margaret Weis

 

 

71,827.  To wish was to hope, and to hope was to expect.  (Expectation & Wish & Hope)  Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility
