History says, Don't hope
on this side of the grave.
But then, once in a lifetime
the longed for tidal wave
of justice can rise up,
and hope and history rhyme.

      - Seamus Heaney
            from "Double Take,"
            The Cure of Troy (1991)

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way.
On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.

      - Arundhati Roy (2003)

Hope is believing in the plausibility of the possible
over the necessity of the probable.

      - Mimonides (12th c.)
