interesting post. philosophical one...i like it
Without hope, it will be hard to move on after a tragedy or a changing event in your life. Hope gives us energy to go on with life..and yes..hopeful beings make it through the harsh condition..survival of the fittest.
In my nursing profession, I have seen cancer patients living with grace because of HOPE. You can also describe hope as an emotional support. This type of mind set gives them positive outlook on life and get them through those long chemo treatements. Hope also help family memeber to deal with crisis. Hope gives you emotional comfort ,"things will be better."
Hope is the last thing that dies in man; and though it be exceedingly deceitful, yet it is of this good use to us, that while we are traveling through life it conducts us in an easier and more pleasant way to our journey's end. -- Franois de la Rochefoucauld
