A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on poetry, spiritual, freedom, and hope

Dance, when you're broken open
Dance, if you've torn the bandage off
Dance in the middle of the fighting
Dance in your blood
Dance, when you're perfectly free

Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)

A Quote by unknown on love, hope, movies, and keri russell

"Dear Baby,

I hope someday, somebody wants to hold you for 20 minutes straight and that's all they do. They don't pull away, they don't look at your face, they don't try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms and hold on tight without an ounce of selfishness to it."

A Quote by Father Ramond J. De Souza on hope, christian, jesus, god, and religion

{Excerpted direct quotations from newspaper article ]  "What is the hope that can give meaning to life?  Without some form of hope, the Holy Father argues that life becomes tedious and potentially burdersome, even if it is marked by material influence and technical progress.  The person without hope finds himself in an existential difficulty:  For what enduring purpose am I clinging to this life that I love and do not want to lose?"

The article goes on later to say, "Hope is not then something for the future alone, a sort of wishful thinking aout what might be; it offers meaning for us today.  Christian hope is founded on certain faith that life is not a meaningless riddle, but a mystery progressively revealed and finding the fulfillment in the redemption won by Jesus Christ and offered to all peoples."

"In restating this basic Christian doctrine, Benedict argues that it is not only for Christians alone.  Others may not share the Christian faith in God, but the Christian proclamation that hope comes from within the person- in the realm of faith and conscience - is for them too.  It offers an important protection against stifling and occasionally brutal social systems built on false hopes that come from outside the person, founded on political idealogies, economic models and social theories."

A Quote by unknown on heartbreak, love, relationships, life, difficulties, overcoming obstacles, pain, confusion, fear, and hope

Realize now that when your heart breaks you have to fight like hell to make sure you are still alive… because you are, and that pain you feel is life. The confusion and fear? That is there to remind you that somewhere out there is something better, and that something is worth fighting for.
