Hope Means. . .

G. K. Chesterton, Quoted in Signs of the Times, April 1993, p. 6

Hope means hoping when things are hopeless, or it is no virtue at all...As long as matters are really hopeful, hope is mere flattery or platitude; it is only when everything is hopeless that hope begins to be a strength.
