hope quotes

#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. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about hope
#4965 Dwight D. Eisenhower

The hunger for peace is too great, the hour in history too late, for any government to mock men's hopes with mere words and promises and gestures. [...] There is, before all peoples, a precarious chance to turn the black tide of events. If we failed to strive to seize this chance, the judgment of future ages will be harsh and just. If we strive but fail and the world remains armed against itself, it at least would need be divided no longer in its clear knowledge of who has condemned humankind to this fate. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about hope
#4970 Dwight D. Eisenhower

Against the dark background of the atomic bomb, the United States does not wish merely to present strength, but also the desire and the hope for peace. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about hope
#4972 Dwight D. Eisenhower

I know that the American people share my deep belief that if a danger exists in the world, it is a danger shared by all; and equally, that if hope exists in the mind of one nation, that hope should be shared by all. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about hope
#5438 Karl Marx

In every stock-jobbing swindle everyone knows that some time or other the crash must come, but every one hopes that it may fall on the head of his neighbour, after he himself has caught the shower of gold and placed it in safety. .

Karl Marx Quotes about hope
#6067 Pierre Trudeau

Pierre Trudeau Quotes about hope
#6520 Will Rogers

The money was all appropriated for the top in the hopes that it would trickle down to the needy. Mr. Hoover didn’t know that money trickled up. Give it to the people at the bottom and the people at the top will have it before night, anyhow. But it will at least have passed through the poor fellow’s hands.” .

Will Rogers Quotes about hope
#6840 Adlai Stevenson

Many of the world’s troubles are not due just to Russia or communism. They would be with us in any event because we live in an era of revolution—the revolution of rising expectations. In Asia, the masses now count for something. Tomorrow, they will count for more. And, for better or for worse, the future belongs to those who understand the hopes and fears of masses in ferment. The new nations want independence, including the inalienable able right to make their own mistakes. The people want respect—and something to eat every day. And they want something better for their children. .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about hope
#6958 Charles de Gaulle

"But has the last word been said? Must hope disappear? Is defeat final? No! .

Charles de Gaulle Quotes about hope
#6991 Albert Camus

I hope the dogs don't bark tonight. I always think it's mine. .

Albert Camus Quotes about hope
#6996 Albert Camus

The papers were always talking about the debt owed to society. According to them, it had to be paid. But that doesn't speak to the imagination. What really counted was the possibility of escape, a leap to freedom, out of the implacable ritual, a wild run for it that would give whatever chance for hope there was. Of course, hope meant being cut down on some street corner, as you ran like mad, by a random bullet. But when I really thought it through, nothing was going to allow me such a luxury. Everything was against it; I would just be caught up in the machinery again. .

Albert Camus Quotes about hope
#7163 Adolf Hitler

I did not want this struggle. Since January, 1933, when Providence entrusted me with the leadership of the German Reich, I had an aim before my eyes which was essentially incorporated in the program of our National Socialist party. I have never been disloyal to this aim and have never abandoned my program... Only when the entire German people become a single community of sacrifice can we expect and hope that Almighty God will help us. The Almighty has never helped a lazy man. He does not help the coward. He does not help a people that cannot help itself. The principle applies here, help yourselves and Almighty God will not deny you his assistance. .

Adolf Hitler Quotes about hope
#7213 Adolf Hitler

In order to persuade Britain to pack up, to compel her to make peace, it was essential to rob her of her hope of being able still to confront us, on the continent itself, with an adversary of a stature equal to our own. .

Adolf Hitler Quotes about hope
#7219 Adolf Hitler

I have been Europe's last hope. She proved incapable of refashioning herself by means of voluntary reform. She showed herself impervious to charm and persuasion. To take her I had to use violence. (26th February) .

Adolf Hitler Quotes about hope
#7221 Adolf Hitler

For a people, as for an individual, it is tragic to have ambitions and to lack both the means essential to their fulfillment and any hope of acquiring those means. .

Adolf Hitler Quotes about hope
#7560 P. J. O'Rourke

Of course, the humans in Haiti have hope. They hope to leave. .

#7840 Fran§ois Rabelais

Loupgarou was come with all his giants, who, seeing Pantagruel in a manner alone, was carried away with temerity and presumption, for hopes that he had to kill the good man. Whereupon he said to his companions the giants, You wenchers of the low country, by Mahoom, if any of you undertake to fight against these men here, I will put you cruelly to death. It is my will, that you let me fight single. In the meantime you shall have good sport to look upon us. .

#8011 StanisЕ‚aw Lem

I hoped for nothing. And yet I lived in expectation. Since she had gone, that was all that remained. I did not know what achievements, what mockery, even what tortures still awaited me. I knew nothing, and I persisted in the faith that the time of cruel miracles was not past. .
