In all pleasure, hope is a considerable part
~ Samuel Johnson
In this uncertain space between birth and death … we need hope as surely as
we need food and water, love and friendship. The trick, however, is to remember
that hope is a perilous thing, that it's not a steel and concrete bridge across the
void between this moment and a brighter future. Hope is no stronger than
tremulous beads of dew strung on a filament of spider web, and it alone can't
long support the terrible weight of an anguished mind and a tortured heart.
- by T.G.S.R.
It is the around-the-corner brand of hope that prompts people to action,

when we work together!
