Sharing a few Quotations/Thoughts on HOPE and LOVE

Sharing a few Quotations/Thoughts on HOPE and LOVE

Submitter’s Note
These are some of the notes (in point form) from thoughts and quotations that I’ve written down and collected over the years, which may be of interest and get you “tinking” about these “airey-fairey matters”. Hope that these thoughts may be helpful and perhaps even inspirational to you .

THE DAWN OF HOPE
“He who does not hope to win has already lost.”
– Jose Olmedo

“In the depth of the valleys there is hope. In the deserts of despair, there is the refreshing oasis of the human spirit…always.”
– craig

Esperanzo = hope (in Spanish)

SOUTH AFRICA
“Either we stayed as we were, trapped inside our fortress of paranoia, deformed by fear and greed, or we opened the door to Africa… and set forth into the unknown.”
The country survives because of the strength and optimism of its people.
From out of the epic injustice of apartheid towards the tortuous tiny first steps of a “negotiated revolution”, ultimately arose an epic reconciliation.

WALLS
“Man is a great wall builder
The Berlin Wall
The Wailing Wall of Jerusalem
But the wall most impregnable
Has a moat
flowing with fright
around his heart
A wall without windows for the spirit to breeze through
without a door for love to walk in.”
– OSWALD MTSHALI, Soweto (South African) poet
from ‘My Traitor’s Heart’ by Rian Malan (published by Vintage 1990)

“The most noble aspects of the human spirit – unquenchable in its search for freedom and justice.”
– great writing by Rian Malan in his compelling book ‘My Traitor’s Heart’
