Doublets: Hope

atkins bookshelf quotationsHope is a renewal option; if you run out of it at the end of the day, you get to start over in the morning.

Barbara Kingsolver, American novelist and essayist, best known for The Poisonwood Bible (1998), and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle (2007). Kingsolver established the Bellwether Prize in 2000 to “encourage writers, publishers, and readers to consider how fiction engages visions of social change and human justice.”

The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. The most you can do is live inside that hope, running down its hallways, touching the walls on both sides.

From Animal Dreams by Barbara Kingsolver
