The Virtue of Hope
"The virtue of hope, with great irony, is the fruit of a learned capacity to suffer wisely, calmly, and generously. The ego demands successes to survive; the soul needs only meaning to thrive. Somehow hope provides its own kind of meaning, in a most mysterious way."
(The above is an excerpt from the April 17, 2020, post of the Center for Action and Contemplation, Hope and Suffering.)
