There are many who would have us believe that hope fades, and that it should rightfully be that way. Friedrich Nietzsche said, "Hope in reality is the worst of all evils because it prolongs the torments of man."

1 Thes­salo­nians 5:16 – 18 The Message
Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens.
