Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
What one hopes for is always better than what one has.
He that waits for a dead man’s shoes may long enough go barefoot.
There is no eel so small but it hopes to become a whale.
If it were not for hope, the heart would break.
In the hour of adversity be not without hope, for crystal rain falls from black clouds.
While there’s life, there’s hope!
From the withered tree, a flower blooms.
A good hope is better than a bad possession.
Wishes are the echo of a lazy will.
