Part 3. The Best Hope Speeches

Barack Obama

Hope is what led a band of colonists to rise up against an empire;
what led the greatest of generations to free a continent and heal a nation;
what led young women and young men to sit at lunch counters and brave fire hoses and march through Selma and Montgomery for freedom’s cause.
Hope is what led me here today – with a father from Kenya, a mother from Kansas;
and a story that could only happen in the United States of America.
Hope is the bedrock of this nation; the belief that our destiny will not be written for us, but by us;
by all those men and women who are not content to settle for the world as it is;
who have courage to remake the world as it should be.

Howard Zinn

To be hopeful in bad times is based on the fact that human history is not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.
If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something.
If we remember those times and places where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act.
And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand Utopian future.
The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.

Reinhold Niebuhr

Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime, therefore, we are saved by hope.
Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history;
Therefore, we are saved by faith.
Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone. Therefore, we are saved by love.
No virtuous act is quite a virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as from our own;
Therefore, we are saved by the final form of love which is forgiveness.


Listen to the exhortation of the dawn!
Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and realities of your existence.
The bliss of growth,
The glory of action,
The splendor of beauty;
For yesterday is but a dream,
And to-morrow is only a vision;
But to-day well lived makes
Every yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore to this day!
Such is the salutation of the dawn!

F. Scott Fitzgerald

For what it’s worth… it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be.
There’s no time limit.
Start whenever you want.
You can change or stay the same.
There are no rules to this thing.
We can make the best or the worst of it.
I hope you make the best of it.
I hope you see things that startle you.
I hope you feel things you’ve never felt before.
I hope you meet people who have a different point of view.
I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start over again.
