Wednesday of Hope – the Winds Will Carry You

I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you’re going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.

Wednesday of Hope – In a World Full of Peril

The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.

– J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Wednesday of Hope – I Believe that People Are Good

Wednesday of Hope – Hold Fast to Dreams

Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.

– Langston Hughes
