Wednesday of Hope – Fill the World with Hope

The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.

― Barack Obama

Where is Beauty?

People often say that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves.

– Salma Hayek

Wednesday of Hope – Hope is not a Fairytale

 

Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.

― G.K. Chesterton

The Heart of Wonder

May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder.

– John O’Donohue

Wednesday of Hope – It Is Never Hopeless

When you say a situation or a person is hopeless, you are slamming the door in the face of God.

– Charles L. Allen

The Soil of Contemplation

What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.

– Meister Eckhart

Wednesday of Hope – The Need for Perspective

The only thing I can recommend at this stage is a sense of humor, an ability to see things in their ridiculous and absurd dimensions, to laugh at others and at ourselves, a sense of irony regarding everything that calls out for parody in this world. In other words, I can only recommend perspective and distance.

― Václav Havel

How immense are those mountains? It’s hard to tell from a distance.
