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.
Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. ~ Martin Luther King Jr.
Unity grows from the soil of humility, which is the safeguard against schisms and division. The spirit of evil is powerless against humility. ~ Jean Vanier
Do not depend on the hope of results. You may have to face the fact that your work will be apparently worthless and even achieve no result at all, if not perhaps results opposite to what you expect. As you get used to this idea, you start more and more to concentrate not on the results, but on the value, the rightness, the truth of the work itself. You gradually struggle less and less for an idea and more and more for specific people. In the end, it is the reality of personal relationship that saves everything. ~ Thomas Merton
