Wednesday of Hope – Courage to Fail

Wednesday of Hope – Humor and 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

Wednesday of Hope – Wait

I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope
For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, 
For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith
But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.

– T.S. Eliott

Wednesday of Hope – Indomitable Expectation

At the bottom of the heart of every human being there is something that goes on indomitably expecting, in the teeth of all experience of crimes committed, suffered and witnessed, that is good and not evil will be done to her. It is this above all that is sacred in every being.

– Simone Weil

Wednesday of Hope – What is this Darkness?

What if this darkness is not the darkness of the tomb, but the darkness of the womb?
