Hope: Elizabeth Scott

What's your definition of hope?

Something we all want, and something that can be hard to find and hold on to. It's joyful possibility, and when it comes it may only be for a moment -- but sometimes, a moment is all you need.

What makes you hopeful?

When people believe in themselves. Love. The stars on a clear night, when it looks like you can see forever.

- Elizabeth Scott

what a great quote from ms. scott!
i think all the "unknowns" make me hopeful... if you never know what is going to happen next well, it just might be something good!

Silvia said...

Nice interview.
I totally agree with Elizabeth's definition for Hope.
Hope is something all of us need to continue fighting on our day by day and it might be a moment, but this moment means a lot to us.

Thanks for the neat quote on hope!

I just read the cover story, and how interesting! I think its neat how it came about, and I love the cover!

Jen said...

I think that possibility is hope, just the though that there is a possibility and that there are so many of them.

Paradox said...

I think hope is like a spark, because once there is a spark in our sight, we know that it can become a fire. A possibility of good to come.

Very eloquently put, Ms Scott!

Thanks, Holly. Right now, right as I read your comment, I am holding on to a specific hope - so thank you.
