One does not expect in this world; one hopes and pays carfares.
There is nothing more miserable and foolish than anticipation.
Oft expectation fails, and most oft there where most it promises.
Appetite, with an opinion of attaining, is called hope; the same without such opinion, despair.
Hope awakens courage. He who can implant courage in the human soul is the best physician.
For in that word, that fatal word, however we promise, hope, believe, there breathes despair.
The setting of a great hope is like the setting of the sun. The brightness of our life is gone.
Under the storm and the cloud today, and today the hard peril and pain – tomorrow the stone shall be rolled away, for the sunshine shall follow the rain.
We do not stray out of all worlds into the ever silent; We do not raise our hands to the void for things beyond hope.
The miserable hath no other medicine but only hope.
