Hope - Basis for Life

“I like the night.
Without the dark, we'd never see the stars.”
― Stephenie Meyer, Twilight

I am young and inexperienced. Brushing that thought aside, I would like to say that HOPE is the second basic necessity to life – after breathing of course! But, then there are two other over-hyped emotions (after life) – Love and Loneliness. It is sad to see that people don’t care much about hope.

We set our alarm, plan our meetings and almost everything on the HOPE that we would still be alive. Death is inevitable and uncontrollable. It is pre-determined and will happen when it is scheduled. We all know this. Yet, we continue to move on because of HOPE.

Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering 'it will be happier’...”
― Alfred Tennyson

During tough times and failures, we cry. But, we also wipe our tears. When we fall, we get hurt. But, we also get up and walk again. It is nothing but out of HOPE. We hope that clouds shall pass and time heal.

“Only in the darkness can you see the stars”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

We hope that the entire world will conspire to get us what we want. We trust in destiny and hope that everything happens for a reason.

And, I think the below mentioned quotes says it all:

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”
― Epicurus
