If you break me I do not stop working,
If you touch me I may be snared,
If you lose me nothing will matter.

Sincerely, Hope.

Hope is the option on happiness bought by the heart... and sold by the mind.

I think Shawshank is the ultimate film about hope, it encapsulates all the elements of hope: patience - endurance - optimism - hard work - trust in the future - hardship - never letting your spirit being beaten down by adversity, it's even the last word we hear in the film ... so if I were you, I would use it as an intro and give a chance to the other movies.

It was one of the first thoughts when starting this poll. But I can tell for sure that people go through many life obstacles, loosing their hope which then may be brought by heart again... So, all the quotes are in place, but again I see no instrument to invite people to vote for quotes here not the movies.

PS: Here is an example to compare:
When you find yourself at a new beginning, just give hope a chance to float up. And it will, too...
vs.
Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.
vs.
Hope comes to the young as naturally as the spring rains.

MAthePA,

Nicely done poll suggestion.

My vote:
However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there's life, there is hope. [Stephen Hawking]

My favorite:
There are two wolves and they are always fighting. One is darkness and despair. The other is light and hope. Which wolf wins? - Whichever one you feed.

Good poll, my vote: There never was much hope. Just a fool's hope.

Oh no... Please don't publish!
My memory refreshed to this great one:
This is Christmas! The season of perpetual hope!
so I need 1-3 days of more thinking on this poll.

Finally, the next quotes:
  1. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words, they are perspectives.
  2. If you show someone their future, they have no future. You take away the mystery – you take away hope.
  3. You have broken what could not be broken! Now, hope is broken.
are replaced with new quotes (and movies):
  1. This is Christmas! The season of perpetual hope!
  2. Hope is an indulgence I don't have time for.
  3. Hope is a hard habit to break.
It's ready.
