Quotes of the Day for 14 April 2001 – Hope

After the darkness of Good Friday, in confidence of new life revealed in the brightness of Easter tomorrow, we cling to Hope.

Van's signature

The quotes:

Strong hope is a much greater stimulant of life than any realized joy could be.
     - Nietzsche

Hope, like faith, is nothing if it is not contagious; it is nothing if it is not ridiculous.
     - Thornton Wilder

True hope is swift, and flies with swallow's wings. Kings it makes gods, and meaner creatures kings.
     - William Shakespeare

Ah, Hope! what would life be, stripped of thy encouraging smiles, that teach us to look behind the dark clouds of to-day, for the golden beams that are to gild the morrow.
     - François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld

As long as there is one upright man, as long as there is one compassionate woman, the contagion may spread and the scene is not desolate. Hope is the thing left to us in a bad time.
     - E. B. White
