Quotes about hope

#1674 Oscar Wilde

High hopes were once formed of democracy; but democracy means simply the bludgeoning of the people by the people for the people. .

Oscar Wilde Quotes about hope
#1772 Jean Paul Sartre

How can I, who was not able to retain my own past, hope to save that of another? .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about hope
#2039 Ambrose Bierce

O proud philanthropist, your hope is vain To get by giving what you lost by gain. .

Ambrose Bierce Quotes about hope
#2511 Winston Churchill

It is the habit of the boa constrictor to besmear the body of his victim with a foul slime before he devours it; and there are many people in England, and perhaps elsewhere, who seem to be unable to contemplate military operations for clear political objects, unless they can cajole themselves into the belief that their enemy are utterly and hopelessly vile. To this end the Dervishes, from the Mahdi and the Khalifa downwards, have been loaded with every variety of abuse and charged with all conceivable crimes. This may be very comforting to philanthropic persons at home; but when an army in the field becomes imbued with the idea that the enemy are vermin who cumber the earth, instances of barbarity may easily be the outcome. This unmeasured condemnation is moreover as unjust as it is dangerous and unnecessary. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about hope
#2558 Winston Churchill

I have no doubt that the Romans planned the time-table of their days far better than we do. They rose before the sun at all seasons. Except in wartime we never see the dawn. Sometimes we see sunset. The message of sunset is sadness; the message of dawn is hope. The rest and the spell of sleep in the middle of the day refresh the human frame far more than a long night. We were not made by Nature to work, or even play, from eight o’clock in the morning till midnight. We throw a strain upon our system which is unfair and improvident. For every purpose of business or pleasure, mental or physical, we ought to break our days and our marches into two. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about hope
#2571 Winston Churchill

One may dislike Hitler's system and yet admire his patriotic achievement. If our country were defeated, I hope we should find a champion as indomitable to restore our courage and lead us back to our place among the nations. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about hope
#2586 Winston Churchill

I have always said that if Great Britain were defeated in war I hoped we should find a Hitler to lead us back to our rightful position among the nations. I am sorry, however, that he has not been mellowed by the great success that has attended him. The whole world would rejoice to see the Hitler of peace and tolerance, and nothing would adorn his name in world history so much as acts of magnanimity and of mercy and of pity to the forlorn and friendless, to the weak and poor. ... Let this great man search his own heart and conscience before he accuses anyone of being a warmonger. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about hope
#2601 Winston Churchill

These cruel, wanton, indiscriminate bombings of London are, of course, a part of Hitler’s invasion plans. He hopes, by killing large numbers of civilians, and women and children, that he will terrorise and cow the people of this mighty imperial city ... Little does he know the spirit of the British nation, or the tough fibre of the Londoners. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about hope
#2611 Winston Churchill

'It is not given to us to peer into the mysteries of the future. Still, I avow my hope and faith, sure and inviolate, that in the days to come the British and American peoples will for their own safety and for the good of all walk together side by side in majesty, in justice, and in peace. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about hope
#2667 Winston Churchill

Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about hope
#2722 Winston Churchill

It is vain to recount further the catalogue of miseries. In earlier ages such horrors remain unknown because unrecorded. Just enough flickering light plays upon this infernal scene to give us the sense of its utter desolation and hopeless wretchedness and cruelty. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about hope
#2735 Napoleon I of France

I hope theis not far off when I shall be able to unite all the wise and educated men of all the countries and establish a uniform regime based on the principles of thewhich alone are true and which alone can lead men to . .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about hope
#2742 Napoleon I of France

France is invaded; I am leaving to take command of my troops, and, with God's help and their valor, I hope soon to drive the enemy beyond the frontier. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about hope
#2847 Napoleon I of France

One can lead a nation only by helping it see a bright outlook. A leader is a dealer in hope. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about hope
#3270 George Bernard Shaw

But no public man in these islands ever believes that themeans what it says: he is always convinced that it says what he means; and I have no reason to hope that Mr Coote may be an exception to the rule. .

George Bernard Shaw Quotes about hope
#3508 Douglas Adams

When you're a student or whatever, and you can't afford a car, or a plane fare, or even a train fare, all you can do is hope that someone will stop and pick you up. At the moment we can't afford to go to other planets. We don't have the ships to take us there. There may be other people out there (I don't have any opinions about Life Out There, I just don't know) but it's nice to think that one could, even here and now, be whisked away just by hitchhiking. .

Douglas Adams Quotes about hope
#3825 Francis Bacon

I confess that I have as vast contemplative ends, as I have moderate civil ends: for I have taken allto be my province; and if I could purge it of two sorts of rovers, whereof the one with frivolous disputations, confutations, and verbosities, the other with blind experiments and auricular traditions and impostures, hath committed so many spoils, I hope I should bring in industrious observations, grounded conclusions, and profitable inventions and discoveries; the best state of that province. This, whether it be curiosity, or vain glory, or nature, or (if one take it favourably) philanthropia, is so fixed in my mind as it cannot be removed. And I do easily see, that place of any reasonable countenance doth bring commandment of more wits than of a man's own; which is the thing I greatly affect. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about hope
#3911 Francis Bacon

Another argument of hope may be drawn from this — that some of the inventions already known are such as before they were discovered it could hardly have entered any man's head to think of; they would have been simply set aside as impossible. For in conjecturing what may be men set before them the example of what has been, and divine of the new with an imagination preoccupied and colored by the old; which way of forming opinions is very fallacious, for streams that are drawn from the springheads of nature do not always run in the old channels. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about hope
#3912 Francis Bacon

There is another ground of hope that must not be omitted. Let men but think over their infinite expenditure of understanding, time, and means on matters and pursuits of far less use and value; whereof, if but a small part were directed to sound and solid studies, there is no difficulty that might not be overcome. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about hope
#3963 Francis Bacon

The virtue of prosperity, is temperance; the virtue of adversity, is fortitude; which in morals is the more heroical virtue. Prosperity is the blessing of the ; adversity is the blessing of the New; which carrieth the greater benediction, and the clearer revelation of God's favor. Yet even in the Old Testament, if you listen to 's harp, you shall hear as many hearse-like airs as carols; and the pencil of the Holy Ghost hath labored more in describing the afflictions of Job, than the felicities of . Prosperity is not without many fears and distastes; and adversity is not without comforts and hopes. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about hope
#3969 Francis Bacon

A man that hath no virtue in himself, ever envieth virtue in others. For men's minds, will either feed upon their own good, or upon others' evil; and who wanteth the one, will prey upon the other; and whoso is out of hope, to attain to another's virtue, will seek to come at even hand, by depressing another's fortune. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about hope
#4014 Francis Bacon

As for the passions and studies of the mind: avoid envy; anxious fears; anger fretting inwards; subtle and knotty inquisitions; joys and exhilarations in excess; sadness not communicated. Entertain hopes; mirth rather than joy; variety of delights, rather than surfeit of them; wonder and admiration, and therefore novelties; studies that fill the mind with splendid and illustrious objects, as histories, fables, and contemplations of nature. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about hope
#4421 Ralph Waldo Emerson

The imitator dooms himself to hopeless mediocrity. The inventor did it because it was natural to him, and so in him it has a charm. In the imitator something else is natural, and he bereaves himself of his own beauty, to come short of another man's. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about hope
#4505 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Butlooks forward: the eyes of men are set in his forehead, not in his hindhead: man hopes: genius creates. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about hope
#4560 Ralph Waldo Emerson

You take the way from man, not to man. All persons that ever existed are its forgotten ministers. Fear and hope are alike beneath it. There is somewhat low even in hope. In the hour of vision, there is nothing that can be called gratitude, nor properly joy. The soul raised over passion beholds identity and eternal causation, perceives the self-existence of Truth and Right, and calms itself with knowing that all things go well. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about hope
#4770 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force, that thoughts rule the world. No hope so bright but is the beginning of its own fulfilment. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about hope
#4918 Dwight D. Eisenhower

The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about hope
#4955 Dwight D. Eisenhower

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about hope
#4960 Dwight D. Eisenhower

A nation's hope of lasting peace cannot be firmly based upon any race in armaments but rather upon just relations and honest understanding with all other nations. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about hope
#4963 Dwight D. Eisenhower

This we do know: a world that begins to witness the rebirth of trust among nations can find its way to a peace that is neither partial nor punitive. With all who will work in good faith toward such a peace, we are ready, with renewed resolve, to strive to redeem the near-lost hopes of our day. .
