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’

Sharing a few Quotations/Thoughts on HOPE (from the new novel ‘Stirling’ )

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”. These thoughts will form an extract from a chapter of a novel I’m currently writing, called ‘Stirling’. Hope that these thoughts may be helpful and perhaps even inspirational to you… so am sharing. Enjoy…

“Without trust, there is no hope for love and love is all we ever have to hold against the dark.”

– Creina Alcock

“Like a modern Gandhi, she (Aung San Suu Kyi) lives those timeless and universal notions which have always appealed to humans – freedom, sacrifice, endurance, peace, courage, forgiveness, and most of all, hope, when there is little reason for it.”

Fine writing by Simon Scott in his article LOOKING TO BUILD HOPE IN A TROUBLED COUNTRY.

What I see for 2011 is the need to try to make the people understand that we have the capacity to bring about change. What I want most of all is to empower the people and make them understand ‘we are the ones who can bring about change in this country’.”

as published in the NZ Herald, Jan 17 2011.

Shared by ä champion of hope”

“From the depth of the valleys, in the deserts of despair, there is hope… as there is the unquenchable oasis, the immense breadth and depth of the human spirit… always.”
