Whatever you do, hold on to hope

"Whatever you do, hold on to hope!
The tiniest thread will twist into an unbreakable cord. 
Let hope anchor you in the possibility 
that this is NOT the end of your story;
that change will bring you to peaceful shores."
Hope, deceitful as it is, serves at least to lead us to the end of our lives by an agreeable route.  
[Author: Fran├žois Duc de La Rochefoucauld]

Once you choose hope, anything's possible.  
[Author: Christopher Reeve]

Hope is the only universal liar who never loses his reputation for veracity.
