Dieter F. Uchtdorf

David Rakoff
Hope is a great falsifier. Let good judgment keep her in check. Baltasar Gracian

People have managed to avert their eyes and hope for the best. David Chalmers

It saddens me to see the reality-television shows that are getting so much fanfare that are a celebration of stupidity and the degradation of women. And those women are consistently wearing too short, too tight dresses. I hope the trend of aging gracefully returns. Prabal Gurung

I hope everybody will go back to the negotiating table. I've always said this is the only way forward. Mohamed ElBaradei
The truth is, truly passionate media creators don't get into the media business to make huge gains from spectacular unicorn exits.

It's how we're wired, so to speak. John Battelle
Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, 'It will be happier.' Alfred Lord Tennyson

Well, I just hope we can have peace, and I hope it'll do some good. Samantha Smith

Whatever enlarges hope will also exalt courage. William Samuel Johnson
I hope what's different for not only the channel 'It's Grace' 2014, but for the brand overall, is I hope to continue to expand into other areas of creative content and original content. We have 'Camp Takota' coming out on Valentine's Day - we're all so pumped for it! It's so exciting! Grace Helbig

I hope we don't get to the point where we have to have the cat stop chasing the mouse to teach him glassblowing and basket weaving. Joseph Barbera

When I was in high school, there was 'Superbad' and 'The Girl Next Door' and 'Wedding Crashers' and all these great movies.

I hope popchips will be the Vitaminwater of the snack aisle. Keith Belling
I hope I don't just sit around moping for two years. Yancy Butler

Aasif Mandvi

However, I hope I am also judged on my accomplishments as an actor and not just on my pretty face! Jonathan Brandis

Candidate Obama was either exceptionally naive or willfully disingenuous when he vowed to change the way Washington works.

Shane Carruth

Mad, is he? Then I hope he will bite some of my other generals. King George II

Kids often ask me if characters are real or made up - and I always tell them, 'I hope they're real but I made them up.' Katherine Paterson

I really hope my peers appreciate and respect what I'm doing. Shania Twain
Working on 'Raising Hope' is a very hurry-up-and-wait activity, and I just always liked the idea of being as productive as I can be.

Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for. Joseph Addison

In the history of photography, we have many masterpieces in terms of black and white books. You have Bresson's 'Decisive Moment,' Frank's 'The Americans'... many masterpieces.

Simon Sinek
I am having so much fun performing, I feel almost guilty. I think, my God, I hope no one comes and busts me for this. David Crosby

I would hope not! I would hope that you would appreciate the fact that you were entertained for 119 hours even if you didn't love the finale. Carlton Cuse
I hope it's always going to be a mix between theatre, film and radio. I've been very lucky living in London that you can do all that - in New York and L.A., there's more of a structure for film in L.A. and theatre in New York. In London, our industry is smaller, but it produces brilliant work all in one place. Samuel Barnett

Every night when I go to bed, I hope that I may never wake again, and every morning renews my grief. Franz Schubert
In my stories, I controlled what happened in a way I couldn't in real life. My characters lived through the horror and degradation of the cruelty of others and they not only survived, they thrived. They gave me hope and laughter, and they kept me going in spite of everything else. They were my heroes. Sherrilyn Kenyon
Our goals and what we hope to achieve by moving to food assistance is even in supporting the crisis needs of the most vulnerable people, we provide them with the capacity to be more resilient to the next shock. Ertharin Cousin

The screen is a magic medium. It has such power that it can retain interest as it conveys emotions and moods that no other art form can hope to tackle. Stanley Kubrick
I'm moving on. I should have made that clear when I made the announcement. I guess I wasn't clear. If people think you're leaving a show after all these years, you might be retiring.

You hope in this life that you grow and don't always repeat your mistakes. Tony Dorsett

Money you know you need or want to spend in the next few years is savings. Money you keep handy for an emergency belongs in savings. Money you hope to use soon for a down payment on a house belongs in savings. And all savings belong in a low-risk bank savings account or money market account. Suze Orman

When I go to see people, I always kind of hope they are going to play some kind of songs I know. So you've got to know your audience. It's kind of something that is a blessing and a curse in a way.

I wanted to explore the possibility that this could have become 'Planet of the Humans and the Apes' instead of just 'Planet of the Apes,' so I wanted there to be this hope of connection as well as this inexorable pull towards what we know the series becomes. Matt Reeves

Jake Gyllenhaal
Let's hope you feel better now. Jack Kevorkian

Even if I don't always behave as I should, this still doesn't explain why so many people have something against me. But you know how it is.

Mario Balotelli
Theater is, of course, a reflection of life. Maybe we have to improve life before we can hope to improve theater. William Ralph Inge

I think it's sad that movies and television have caused the theatre to fade as a popular art form. I hope to get young people into the theatre and expose them to Shakespeare. Kelly McGillis
Democracy is a daring concept - a hope that we'll be best governed if all of us participate in the act of government. It is meant to be a conversation, a place where the intelligence and local knowledge of the electorate sums together to arrive at actions that reflect the participation of the largest possible number of people. Brian Eno
The game's been good to me and I hope I've been good to the game. I'm 50 years old and I've pretty much did everything that I wanted to do in boxing. Evander Holyfield
I always tend to write about outsiders. And what's been fun for me is, as I travel around and visit schools, is that other kids that feel the same way relate to some of my characters, and so I hope in some way that's helping them when they want to read about somebody that they can relate to. Kimberly Willis Holt

Today we bury his remains in the earth as a seed of immortality. Our hearts are full of sadness, yet at the same time of joyful hope and profound gratitude. Pope Benedict XVI
You travel with the hope that something unexpected will happen. It has to do with enjoying being lost and figuring it out and the satisfaction.

I taught myself to drive. I hope that the child in me never dies. Tom Glazer

I think every theater in America wants a younger audience... and you can't just hope to have a younger audience, you have to program things that audience is going to connect with. Diane Paulus
Feminism is, I hope, a way to a better future for everyone who inhabits this world. Feminism should not be something that needs a seductive marketing campaign. The idea of women moving through the world as freely as men should sell itself. Roxane Gay
America is a beacon of hope for the world. And yet we are in so much trouble. Kirk Cameron

I propose changing fear for hope. I propose changing Mexico. Enrique Pena Nieto
Heaven gives us hope and makes our present burdens easier to bear. Billy Graham

The work I was involved in had no obvious therapeutic benefit. It was purely of scientific interest. I hope the country will continue to support basic research even though it may have no obvious practical value. John Gurdon

I hope we will use the Net to cross barriers and connect cultures. Tim Berners-Lee

When I started writing 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid,' I was trying to write the type of book you might enjoy, put back on your shelf, and rediscover a few years later. I hope that the book finds its way into the bathroom of every kid in America. Jeff Kinney

Even diseases recognized in the same historical period have been given names based on characteristics that have no relation to one another, and thus no common criteria. Sherwin B. Nuland
Fighting a war on terrorism is like fighting against crime. We can never hope to eradicate crime, so we shouldn't bother fighting it. Craig Bruce
We lack social awareness because we're so focused on what we're going to say next - and how what other people are saying affects us - that we completely lose sight of other people. This is a problem because people are complicated. You can't hope to understand someone until you focus all of your attention in his or her direction. Travis Bradberry
I've been at this for a while, and to a very real extent, you look at cover art with the same sort of expectation you have for playing slot machines in Vegas.

I'm a mixed breed and hope to live longer because of it. Charisma Carpenter
I think if there's a great depression there might be some hope. Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Iraq can emerge as a beacon of hope and democracy in the Middle East, and the world, with our help. Chris Chocola
I just sort of take it from a character perspective, and I don't know if he was necessarily spiritual, but I do think he had hope. He was a character that was comfortable having hope in his life, and hope is faith. Ryan Gosling
I say whatever I think and whatever is on my mind, and I just hope that it comes out good. I just try to have a lot of fun. Ashton Kutcher
For all its terrible faults, in one sense America is still the last, best hope of mankind, because it spells out so vividly the kind of happiness that most people actually want, regardless of what they are told they ought to want. Ferdinand Mount
Sometimes I hope that through osmosis I might get a workout - just by wearing the clothes. Kate Walsh
The hope of Internet anarchists was that repressive governments would have only two options: accept the Internet with its limitless possibilities of spreading information, or restrict Internet access to the ruling elite and turn your back on the 21st century, as North Korea has done. Peter Singer
What I've said about compromise, I hope to build a conservative majority so bipartisanship becomes Democrats joining Republicans to roll back the size of government, reduce the bureaucracy, and get America moving again. Richard Mourdock
I hope that any expansion of London will learn from the planning examples of some of its most desirable areas such as Chelsea, Notting Hill, Belgravia and Mayfair.

Courage is like love; it must have hope for nourishment. Napoleon Bonaparte

I would hope that people didn't think I was anything like Joan! It's very hard for me because Joan says such cruel things all the time.

To be able to deliver those lines and do them with a coolness, yet still make her likable, is a bit of a challenge. Christina Hendricks
I feel that these stories are being written to articulate certain confusions and disappointments, and I do mean to shake up the reader, and I do hope they're on target. Ann Beattie

I hope to refine music, study it, try to find some area that I can unlock. I don't quite know how to explain it but it's there. These can't be the only notes in the world, there's got to be other notes some place, in some dimension, between the cracks on the piano keys. Marvin Gaye
The attitude that nature is chaotic and that the artist puts order into it is a very absurd point of view, I think. All that we can hope for is to put some order into ourselves. Willem de Kooning
For African societies, no issue looms larger than employment. Only vibrant entrepreneurship and thriving small businesses can hope to provide the millions of jobs that are needed. Richard Attias

I hope I don't get driven to the point where, to be honest, I'm never satisfied. I hope there's some part of me that can be content. Ben Schwartz

I hope people don't compare 2D and 3D because 3D's new, it's unfair to compare to 2D which is really sophisticated, even when we're jaded about it. 3D just began, give it a chance, let the equipment and projection system catch up and be better, let the price go down, let more filmmakers get a hold of it more easily. Ang Lee
We are laying the foundations of a government, which we hope may outlast the Pyramids. Caleb Cushing
I hope that I would be considered romantic. I don't know... one of my favorite movies is 'The Notebook' so I guess that would be considered romantic.

No matter how powerful our political and religious leaders think they are, they are as dust before the immense and implacable forces of history and progress. I just hope that they don't make too much of a mess or take too many more people down with them. Alan Moore

What I love about how my career has gone up to this point is that I've always, always put my head down on my pillow at night, and I've been able to say that I've done, honestly, what I've felt like I wanted to do. And that's really all you can hope for in everything you do. Debbie Gibson
Skating, I think I was told once, is the second most expensive sport. My family's had to refinance three times - they really want to do anything that it takes for my dreams to come true.

I think the thing about film is, as it gets proved by a lot of young filmmakers now, that the medium will just go on reinventing itself, and so you just hope to be a part of that and not a part of some kind of endless regurgitation or 'Here I am doing what you know I do' kind of thing. Alan Rickman

A lot of designers still have nostalgia for the past. As for the furniture in the future, I hope they use less of real wood. Conservation in wood is necessary. Elsa Peretti

When I write a play, and we read it for the first time, the great fear is that everybody is going to say, 'You're a bum and you can't write. This stinks.' and throw the script in the garbage.

When I read James Joyce, I'm not really interested in the Dublin of 1904.

I think most writers do hope that their books will be read in ten years. Joseph O'Neill

When you speak directly at things and don't say you're going to try to do something or that you hope to do something, the universe will work with you.

There's no such thing as too late. There are different roles for different ages, assuming an actress has something to offer.

Ayelet Zurer
We need to move into a culture of peace. What I hope to promote is the idea that we all need each other and that the greatest happiness in life is not how much we have but how much we give. That's a wealth that's priceless. You can't buy compassion. Herbie Hancock

Two technologies were maturing together: the digital computer and the space satellite. James Gleick
I really hope everyone who saw 'Twilight' sees 'Warm Bodies,' but at the same time... I don't resent the comparison on a level of quality because I don't judge other movies like that. Now that I make movies, I see how hard it is to do everything. I pretty much love all movies. Jonathan Levine
I hope I'm always convincing when I act! Colin Baker
Once you do away with the idea of people as fixed, static entities, then you see that people can change, and there is hope. bell hooks

I hope that in my books there's an undertone of politics, basic tenets of how we should live. Jasper Fforde

I have been in love with Emily Dickinson's poetry since I was 13, and, like an anonymous post on findagrave.com says, 'Dear Emily - I hope I have understood.' Emily's poems are sometimes difficult, often abstract, on occasion flippant, but her mind is inside them. Helen Oyeyemi

I've done a lot of theater work that has been quite diverse. I feel very fortunate to have had many different people think of me in many different ways.

Next? Growing up to be Clint Eastwood, I hope. Steven Bauer

It's very much like filmmaking always is-you're always asked to do something that you're not sure you know how to do. So you make an educated guess as to what you think will work and you hope between that and plan B, that you can end up with a product that's really good. John Dykstra
I am convinced that the majority of American people do understand that we have a moral responsibility to foster the concepts of opportunity, free enterprise, the rule of law, and democracy. They understand that these values are the hope of the world. Richard Lugar

I hope to be 70 and sitting at the table with journalists, talking about my films. Elena Anaya
I think the notion of retirement is just a dreadful, dreadful idea and I hope I never have to do that. Michael Moritz

There's a lot of great people out here, I just appreciate it and hope everybody has had fun because I've enjoyed my ride. Fuzzy Zoeller
A lot of my comic influences are distinctly American: Woody Allen and Bob Hope, for example. They were always the underdogs who were using wit to sort of battle their way through. And it seems to me that a lot of contemporary U.S. comedies are shot through with losers. None of the characters in 'The Big Bang Theory,' for instance, are studs. Stephen Merchant
In our passage from the Cape of Good Hope the winds were mostly from the westward with very boisterous weather: but one great advantage that this season of the year has over the summer months is in being free from fogs. William Bligh

It doesn't matter that the way of life shown by Hollywood was phony. It helped you hope. Manuel Puig
I knew I was a winner back in the late sixties. I knew I was destined for great things. People will say that kind of thinking is totally immodest. I agree. Modesty is not a word that applies to me in any way - I hope it never will. Arnold Schwarzenegger
If we hope for what we are not likely to possess, we act and think in vain, and make life a greater dream and shadow than it really is. Joseph Addison

I feel blessed that I haven't seen or felt real pain to be immune to it. But I am dreading the time it comes. I feel blessed to have everything going fine. My parents' health is good, my brothers are well-settled, I have a great brother-in-law and my own career is doing fine. I hope and pray that I am fit and fine always. Salman Khan
I think I have made allowances for the kind of despair which would test my faith, but you cannot know in advance what disaster to those you love would be too much to bear faithfully, and like everyone's, my faith is weakly conditional in some ways. I hope, I pray not to lose it. My fingers are crossed. Also my heart. Francis Spufford

I do hope that our spring will be starting shortly and we will all be able to enjoy some sunshine again. Lesley Garrett
In Scotland over many years we have cultivated through our justice system what I hope can be described as a 'culture of compassion.'

I hope I'm going to act for the rest of my life. What scares me is that if I get a big head, my mum said she would take me out of the business instantly - and if you knew my mum, she would do it! Daniel Logan
Listen, it's not nice to have your mum kill herself, that is difficult. But at the end of the day, it happened a long time ago. My mother was, I hope, not the reason that I have been successful. It's not as simplistic as 'My mum killed herself; I've got to prove myself.' I was very lucky that my parents took an interest in me. Stuart Rose
Dystopian novels help people process their fears about what the future might look like; further, they usually show that there is always hope, even in the bleakest future. Lauren Oliver

I hope to start enjoying flirting again when I'm 70, like my mother did. Felicity Kendal

Charge forward with hope and get the best medical advice you can. Talk to your friends, neighbors, family, and together you attack it. We can't always control what happens to us, but we can always control how we react to it. Robert Urich

I hope that tomorrow we can all, wherever we are, join in expressing our grief at Diana's loss, and gratitude for her all-too-short life. It is a chance to show to the whole world the British nation united in grief and respect. Queen Elizabeth II
These are tough times, and the New Yorkers I have met are facing economic adversity with grace and dignity. They worry about their future, care about their neighbors and hope this storm will pass so they can focus on better days ahead. Harold Ford, Jr.

I really hope that we'll have a sustainable future on this planet, I really do. So I probably geek out mostly about learning more about how potentially we can hopefully make that happen, hopefully we're not too far lost. Ellen Page
I would say Hope Solo is competitive. Abby Wambach
I think it's a mistake to ever look for hope outside of one's self. Arthur Miller

What's interesting about Twitter and the influencers that someone follows - like, say, Shaquille O'Neal - is that they see someone who is using the exact same tools that they have access to, and I think that inspires this hope to be able to really engage with someone like him. Jack Dorsey
What thoughts are to the individual, art is to the community as a whole. That's where you reflect on who you are, who you hope to be, what you've gone through, and where you hope to go. Wendell Pierce

I've photographed just about everyone in the world. But what I hope to do is photograph people of accomplishment, not celebrity, and help define the difference once again. Richard Avedon

We cannot hope to effectively counter extremism if we just focus on schools, universities and prisons: we need to take this online as well. Maajid Nawaz

I hope I am a psychotherapist's dream. I've spent enough hours in therapy. Sia Furler
First and foremost I am a commercial writer, and I hope to entertain people.

Robert Crais

My hope is that we will turn Greece into maybe the most transparent country in the world with everything on the web. George Papandreou
People who are exceptionally intelligent are often lonely because there are few people as intelligent as them. I have two little children, and everyone says: 'I hope they're doing well in school.

In truth, the best Bitcoin can hope for is to be a second-rate version of gold, if that. Andrew Ross Sorkin

For generations, America has served as a beacon of hope and freedom for those outside her borders, and as a land of limitless opportunity for those risking everything to seek a better life. Their talents and contributions have continued to enrich our country. Spencer Bachus
Because I was in the business of translating the 'X-Men' from the very successful comics, and taking the most popular book of the 20th century in 'The Lord of the Rings,' and making it into three movies, I hope people realize I wouldn't get involved in anything I didn't think was really going to be worth their while. Ian Mckellen
You know how I came up with the name 'Road to the Super Bowl?' It's an homage to the old Bob Hope - Bing Crosby buddy movies - you know, like 'Road to Zanzibar' or 'Road to Morocco.' Can you tell? All I've done my whole life is go to movies. Steve Sabol

For my books of nonfiction I write about subjects I find fascinating. I've been a Yankees and a Lou Gehrig fan for decades, so I wrote 'Lou Gehrig: The Luckiest Man.'

I never give up hope. Dean Ornish

During 'Chicago Hope,' I never let directors talk to me, because I was so spoiled. I started off with people like Milos Forman, Sidney Lumet, James Lapine, unbelievably gifted people. So there I was, saying, 'Don't talk to me, I don't want your opinion.' I behaved abominably. Mandy Patinkin
I read somewhere once that in the 1960s, fiction writers were troubled by the notion that life was becoming stranger and more sensational than made-up stories could ever hope to be. Our new problem - more profound, I think - is that life no longer resembles a story. Events intersect but don't progress. People interact but don't make contact. Walter Kirn
My childhood was very difficult. I had every childhood disease and then some, but my parents didn't mollycoddle me. They left me to fight those battles on my own.

He who despairs of the human condition is a coward, but he who has hope for it is a fool. Albert Camus
Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future. Lewis B. Smedes
I'm really fun. I'm ridiculously fun. I hope I'm infectiously fun. Kesha

My favorite fruit is grapes. Because with grapes, you always get another chance. 'Cause, you know, if you have a crappy apple or a peach, you're stuck with that crappy piece of fruit. But if you have a crappy grape, no problem - just move on to the next. 'Grapes: The Fruit of Hope.' Demetri Martin
It is a different world than when I was growing up, and you started to just kind of maintain at thirty-five and just hope you can hope it together. People are a lot more vital than I am and doing all kinds of things and leading really important movements. Susan Sarandon
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world.
