Overheard Wisdom

Hope balloon

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

“What gives me the most hope every day is God’s grace; knowing that his grace is going to give me the strength for whatever I face, knowing that nothing is a surprise to God.”

Rick Warren

“When it comes to giving until it hurts, most people have a very low threshold of pain.”


“There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors and hail a materialist or a magician [dabbler in the occult] with the same delight.”

C.S. Lewis, in the Preface to
The Screwtape Letters

“Complaining about a problem without proposing a solution is called whining.”


Tertullian on Hope
