Hope is a state of mind, not of the world. Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success, but rather an ability to work for something because it is good, not because it stands for a chance to succeed.

Vaclav Havel in Lyrics for Re-Creation by James Conlon

 

To Practice This Thought:
Join a group doing good in the world and really believe in its goals, no matter what happens.
