hope

A Quote by Bernard Mannes Baruch on age, atoms, deception, destruction, faith, hope, lies, peace, salvation, work, and world

Behind the black portent of the new atomic age lies a hope which, seized upon with faith, can work out salvation. . . . Let us not deceive ourselves: we must elect world peace or world destruction.

A Quote by Bern Williams on emptiness and hope

Americans are optimists. They hope they'll be wealthy someday - and they're positive they can get one more brushful of paint out of an empty can.

A Quote by Benjamin Franklin on ancestry, blessings, books, day, execution, god, hope, life, posterity, progress, and success

The Book: "So he settled on a method to help him succeed in his quest. He devised a little book and set it up in such a way that he could examine himself and mark his progress at the end of each day." "I entered upon the execution of this plan for self-examination and continued it, with occasional intermission, but I always carried my little book with me. . . ." "And it may be well my posterity should be informed that to this little artifice with the blessing of God, their ancestor owed the constant felicity of his life down to his seventy-ninth year in which this is written. . . . I hope, therefore, that some of my descendants may follow the example and reap the benefits."

A Quote by Benjamin Franklin on death, debt, honor, hope, hunger, idleness, life, needs, profit, taxes, trade, and wishes

Industry need not wish, and he that lives upon hopes will die fasting. There are no gains without pains. He that hath a trade hath an estate, and he that hath a calling hath an office of profit and honor; but then the trade must be worked at and the calling followed, or neither the estate nor the office will enable us to pay our taxes. If we are industrious, we shall never starve; for at the workingman's house hunger looks in, but dares not enter. Nor will the bailiff or the constable enter, for industry pays debts, while idleness and neglect increase them.

A Quote by Benjamin Disraeli on age, delusion, despair, disappointment, hope, and youth

The disappointment of manhood succeeds to the delusion of youth: let us hope that the heritage of old age is not despair.

A Quote by Ben Jonson on age, complaints, death, disappointment, envy, force, hope, paradox, posterity, reason, present, time, and truth

That praises are without reason lavished on the dead, and that the honours due only to are paid to antiquity, is a complaint likely to be always continued by those who, being able to add nothing to truth, hope for eminence from the heresies of paradox; or those who, being forced by disappointment upon consolatory expedients, are willing to hope from posterity what the present age refuses, and flatter themselves that the regard which is yet denied by envy will be at last bestowed by time.

A Quote by Ben Jonson on dreams, hope, life, and struggle

To struggle when hope is banished! To live when life's salt is gone! To dwell in a dream that's vanished- To endure, and go calmly on!
