* While there's life, there's hope!
- Cicero, in Epistolarum ad Atticum [Epistle To Atticus]),
Book IX, 10, 4
* "Hope" is the thing with feathers —
That perches in the soul —
And sings the tune without the words —
And never stops — at all —
And sweetest — in the Gale — is heard —
And sore must be the storm —
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm —
o Emily Dickinson, Poem 254 in The Complete Poems of Emily
Dickinson (1960), edited by Thomas H. Johnson.
* Even now I am full of hope, but the end lies in God.
