Grief’s Best Music


Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tunes without the words – and never stops at all. ~ Emily Dickinson

Hope will never be silent. ~ Harvey Milk

When hope is not pinned wriggling onto a shiny image or expectation, it sometimes floats forth and opens. ~ Anne Lamott

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. ~ Desmond Tutu

Love is a springtime plant that perfumes everything with its hope, even the ruins to which it clings. ~ Gustave Flaubert

Love, hope, fear, faith – these make humanity; These are its sign and note and character. ~ Robert Browning

Faith is not simply a patience that passively suffers until the storm is past. Rather, it is a spirit that bears things – with resignations, yes, but above all, with blazing, serene hope. ~ Corazon Aquino

The word which God has written on the brow of every man is Hope. ~ Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

May the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace
as you trust in Him,
so that you may overflow with hope
by the power of the Holy Spirit.

~ Romans 15:13
