H is for Hope

Dale Carnegie

The ninety and nine are with dreams content; but the hope of the world made new, is the hundredth man who is grimly bent on making those dreams come true.
Edgar Allan Poe

If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.
Henry Ford

Why are we so full of restraint? Why do we not give in all directions? Is it fear of losing ourselves? Until we do lose ourselves there is no hope of finding ourselves.
Henry Miller

Marriage is like putting your hand into a bag of snakes in the hope of pulling out an eel.
Leonardo da Vinci
