'Oh, I hope...I hope...I hope...'
It was late in the afternoon and I was waiting for the results from the mathematics contest which had taken place in the morning. It was very important because, if I had failed, my parents would have never let me go to another contest. All the others who participated in this contest were listening to music or playing cards. How could they be so calm?? I was on edge, almost shouting at them. Didn't they see how important it was to me? And I hoped, I hoped, I hoped...
'Oh no, oh no, oh no, does that man bring the results I waited for? No, he's not...Oh no, oh no, oh no... what if I failed?... I hope, I hope, I hope...I hope I won't fail...' That's how I painfully spent one more hour, waiting impatiently for the results, wondering if I would fail or not...but I still hoped. Finally,the results were there and I could see that I was the first. 'First place. Me. Wait a minute...does that mean I could go to other contests? Yes! YES!!!' Oh yeah...
*Hope dies last :)*
Christopher Reeve quotes:
"Once you choose hope, anything's possible."
Dale Carnegie quotes:
"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all."
Elizabeth Gilbert quotes:
"The inability to open up to hope is what blocks trust, and blocked trust is the reason for blighted dreams."
Erik H. Erikson quotes:
"Hope is both the earliest and the most indispensable virtue inherent in the state of being alive. If life is to be sustained hope must remain, even where confidence is wounded, trust impaired."
Lin Yutang quotes:
"Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence."
