Quote: The Goodness of Hope

I love this passage about hope from one of my favorite authors and personal heroes:

“Hope is a virtue independently of its realisations; it is an intrinsic value, an end in itself, allied to courage and imagination, a positive attitude full of possibility and aspiration. For that reason you discover more about a person when you learn about his hopes than when you count his achievements, for the best of what we are lies in what we hope to be.”

A.C. Grayling, Meditations for the Humanist

May you keep holding on to your hopes and letting them point you to your heart’s unique path. I am trying to do the same!

    It’s good to live in hope. He that has no hope is hopeless.
