"Refuse to let hope be squashed by mere possibilities. It is within you to choose hope until your last breath."
Copyright 2003 Victoria Wolfe
Doctors feel obligated to give the worst-case scenarios and in some cases, like clinical trials, are required by law to do so. But just because they have the directive to give those possibilities, doesn't mean you have to believe them. In every case, the possibility for a good outcome exists--so why not choose hope?

"Walk on with hope and you will never get lost."
Written in 2005 by Sunit Lalwani --- Pakistan
I came up with this one last year when I went through so many problems and pains. It was hope that gave me the chance to walk ahead and find a new path. So walk along with it; you are not lonely and lost.

Life is not as difficult as it seems,
In every tough time a sign of happiness beams.
Whenever low-whenever down,
Remember life is a beautiful song.
So don't be low, don't be down,
Lead life like a beautiful song.

"Sometimes people have hurt us. We ask ourselves, "Why me?" I say, "Why not me?" The things we go through in life happen for a reason and help prepare us for the next step in life. Have faith in yourself and anything you want will happen. Always go forward, don't go backward."

I went through so much in 10 years and I just started coming out of my depression state. You fall down but the good thing is that you can get up, if you believe in yourself.

"Hope. It's a strange word isn't it? How can we have hope when everything is gone? How can we believe that things will get better when we've lost not just ourselves, but others too? The reason is because hope forces to refuse to give up. It gives the infinite power to never stop trying. Hope is the undying power that drives us to achieve any goal, anywhere, anytime. Never stop believing in hope. Somewhere, somehow hope can exist. Use it to strengthen your heart and empower your soul."

This is one I thought of for the hurricane victims. I felt horrible for what happened to them. I pray that things will get better for them.
