Hope is the strongest driving force for a people. Hope which brings about change, which produces new realities, is what opens man's road to freedom. Once hope has taken hold, courage must unite with wisdom. That is the only way of avoiding violence, the only way of maintaining the calm one needs to respond peacefully to offenses.
~ Oscar Arias Sanchez ~
excerpted from his 1987 Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech
I don't know if it is a driving force. It keeps me going sometimes. Is that the same thing?
What about you? Tell me about hope for you.
