The kind of hope that I’m interested in is a part of humility. It’s a part of saying ‘I do not know.’ I start this day with respect and acknowledgment of the past and look for a way forward.
May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears. ~ Nelson Mandela
Because you are human beings you are going to meet failure. You are going to meet disappointment, injustice, betrayal, and irreparable loss. You will find you’re weak where you thought yourself strong. You’ll work for possessions and then find they possess you. You will find yourself — as I know you already have — in dark places, alone, and afraid. What I hope for you, for all my sisters and daughters, brothers and sons, is that you will be able to live there, in the dark place. To live in the place that our rationalizing culture of success denies, calling it a place of exile, uninhabitable, foreign. ~ Ursula Le Guin
The extent of our knowledge will always be, at the same time, the measure of the extent of our ignorance…The way of ignorance, therefore, is to be careful, to know the limits and the efficacy of our knowledge. It is to be humble and to work on an appropriate scale. ~ Wendell Berry
