To live without Hope is to Cease to live. (Fyodor Dostoevsky)
Just as the sinner’s despair of any hope from himself is the first prerequisite of a sound conversion, so the loss of all confidence in himself is the first essential in the believer’s growth in grace. (A.W.Pink)
In our sad condition our only consolation is the expectancy of another life. (Martin Luther)
Jesus gives us hope because He keeps us company, has a vision and knows the way we should go. (Max Lucado)
Hope fills the afflicted soul with such inward joy and consolation, that it can laugh while tears are in the eye, sigh and sing all in a breath; it is called “The rejoicing of hope.” (William Gurnall)
The hope that God has provided for you is not merely a wish. Neither is it dependent on other people, possessions, or circumstances for its validity. Instead, biblical hope is an application of your faith that supplies a confident expectation in God’s fulfillment of His promises. Coupled with faith and love, hope is part of the abiding characteristics in a believer’s life. (John C. Broger)
