Don’t mistake the triumphant sounding language that hope sometimes employs for certainty.
Hope has doubts.
Hope is not the result of a dispassionate analysis of the evidence.
Hope is not a confident projection of a probable future.
Hope is not optimism.
Hope is defiance in the face of bleak circumstances.
Hope is resistance to despair when despair seems like a much more reasonable choice.
Hope is our protest against the inhumanity of the human species.
Hope is most necessary precisely when it is most absurd.
- What’s your definition of hope?
- “How has doubts.” Do you agree or disagree? And why?
