George W Bush
Things start out as hopes and end up as habits
We've had a tough season this time around so it's pleasing to show a bit of form towards the end and hopefully we can take that into next year.
If you keep thinking about what you want to do or what you hope will happen, you don't do it, and it won't happen.
Hopefully I'll be here for the rest of my career.
The more important the subject and the closer it cuts to the bone of our hopes and needs, the more we are likely to err in establishing a framework for analysis.
Stephen Jay Gould
In great straits and when hope is small, the boldest counsels are the safest
You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.
Beware how you take away hope from another human being.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
There is nothing can pay one for that invaluable ignorance which is the companion of youth, those sanguine groundless hopes, and that lively vanity which makes all the happiness of life.
People crushed by laws, have no hope but to evade power. If the laws are their enemies, they will be enemies to the law; and those who have must to hope and nothing to lose will always be dangerous.
I don't consider stardom to be anything related with me. I hope that the only way this business will ever change me will be (giving me) a good life.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. [Not off a cliff, we hope]
Love, hope, fear, faith: these make humanity; These are its' sign and note and character.
Robert Browning Hamilton
Faith, like a jackal, feeds among the tombs, and even from these dead doubts she gathers her most vital hope.
[Of General Wolfe] Mad, is he? Then I hope he will bit some of my other generals.
This was love at first sight, love everlasting: a feeling unknown, unhoped for, unexpected - in so far as it could be a matter of conscious awareness; it took entire possession of him, and he understood, with joyous amazement, that this was for life.
Tottenham have a lot of young English players and it's a young squad, it's a squad going forward and that's the direction I wanted to take.
It's exciting times for me and Spurs and hopefully I'll show what I can do.
I have no money, no resources, no hopes. I am the happiest man alive.
A person, who no matter how desperate the situation, gives others hope, is a true leader.
My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.
They have got to decide how much they want it. Obviously I exclude Andy Murray from any collective criticism as I think he has a fantastic future. [on the desire of the current generation of British tennis hopefuls]
The cliche is a hackneyed idiom that hopes that it can still palm itself off as a fresh response.
It's difficult when we are both in different countries, but obviously we knew that would happen and I hope to come to London some day.
Loss of hope rather than loss of life is what decides the issues of war. But helplessness induces hopelessness.
B H Liddell Hart
The screen is a magic medium. It has such power that it can retain interest as it conveys emotions and moods that no other art form can hope to tackle.
Someday I hope to write a book where the royalties will pay for the copies I give away.
There will always be someone else with a different view than you. I appreciate them and would never say that they are wrong. I hope that they would give me that courtesy also.

Hope nothing from foreign governments. They will never be really willing to aid you until you have shown that you are strong enough to conquer without them.
Abandon hope, all ye who enter here (Inferno)
I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity - all I hope for in my clothes.

Wembley's a class arena and walking out there with just one table and, hopefully, a good audience is something to really cherish
This season's been a non-starter for me but I hope I can have a big impact
You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end each of us must work for his own improvement, and at the same time share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful.
The pause between the errors and trials of the day and the hopes of the night.
I sometimes get birthday cards from fans. But it's often the same message - they hope it's my last.
Travelling is like gambling: it is always connected with winning and losing, and generally where it is least expected we receive, more or less than what we hoped for.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
At this minute I know if Harmy and Simon Jones are fully fit they will just come back into the team, so hopefully I can keep performing well and if the place comes up again I'll fit into that slot.
Looking after two young children keeps me on my toes and hopefully fit enough to cope with the jungle
