New Year, New Hope

I love New Year's Eve, it's all about new beginnings, a fresh start, and hope. Even though the next day is really not any different from the day before except for a new number at the end of your datebook, it feels different because of what you decide to do to celebrate it and what you decided to do to change your tomorrow. Hope is about action. If you don't act on it, then how can you believe it? Strange concept but so true. If there was no hope, there would be no one out there fighting for a cure for cancer, no one getting married, and so on. It affects our every day lives. So to celebrate this New Years and to remind myself the importance of hope, here is a list of my top 10 favorite quotes on hope.

10. "Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow." ~Albert Einstein.

9. "Many of the great achievements of the world were accomplished by tired and discouraged men who kept on working." ~Anonymous

8. "Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it." ~Bill Cosby

7. "May the love deep inside your heart find the love waiting in your dreams. May the laughter you find in your tomorrow wipe away the pain you find in your yesterdays." ~Anonymous

6. "To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risks must be taken because is greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing." ~Anonymous

5. "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." ~Oscar Wilde

4. "Hope is a dream of a soul awake." ~French Proverb

3. "In all things it is better to hope than to despair." Johann Goethe

2. "What seem to us bitter trials are often blessings in disguise." ~Oscar Wilde

1. "Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, and certain of what we do not see." ~Hebrews 11:1

Happy New Years everyone! May your New Year be a fresh beginning!
