Awhile back I read “Get Your Hopes Up!” by Joyce Meyer. I started the book because my hopes had basically diminished. I wasn’t hopeful about anything for a very bleak season. I really delved deeply into the book because I wanted help in getting my hope back. Hope is easy to lose when life circumstances aren’t the best; and it’s difficult to get back, but I believe it’s worth the try.
Without hope what’s really the point?
There were some pretty standout quotes I found in the book; they really captured my attention, and so I’m sharing them.
1. “Hope is the word which God has written on the brow of every man.” Victor Hugo
2. “Hope is sweet-minded and sweet-eyed. It draws pictures, it weaves fancies, it fills the future with delight.” Henry Ward Beecher
3. “Only in the darkness can you see the stars.” Martin Luther King Jr.
4. “Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering ‘it will be happier’…” Alfred Lord Tennyson
5. “I don’t think of the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.” Anne Frank
6. “Hope is the dream of a waking man.” Aristotle
7. “The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” Nelson Mandela
8. “You can choose to be a prisoner of hope, and look forward to God restoring a double portion of anything you have lost in life.” Joyce Meyer
9. “It’s silly not to hope.” Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea
10. “God is the only one who can make the valley of trouble a door of hope.” Catherine Marshall
I hope these quotes will be a blessing to anyone who reads them. 🙂
