Hope Has Doubts

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.

  1. What’s your definition of hope?
  2. “How has doubts.” Do you agree or disagree? And why?
