“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

“We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon.”

~ President Franklin D. Roosevelt

“My parents were never into films, but I hope to make them proud with my work some day. In any case, in Bollywood, your surname matters only till your first, second, or third film at most. Beyond that, you are on your own.”

~ Kriti Sanon

“Bollywood music is definitely a big part of Indian music and can be a great way to introduce people to the sound. But I hope to continue to incorporate other types of Indian music into my work.”

~ A. R. Rahman

“I want my boys to have an understanding of people’s emotions, their insecurities, people’s distress, and their hopes and dreams.”

~ Princess Diana

“Change is a process: future is a destination. People want a sense of hope, possibility and pride about Britain.”

~ Douglas Alexander

Here’s one of my favorite songs from my Chorus years. The high school choir that I was a member for four years sang Z. Randall Stroope’s choral piece “Inscription of Hope” for a concert.  Mr. Stroope was inspired by an inscription found on a cellar wall in Cologne, Germany. All we know about the people who wrote them was that they were Jewish people hiding in Germany. We don’t know who wrote these words, but we can imagine the horrific circumstances under which he or she must have been living.

“Inscription of Hope” by Z. Randall Stroope and  Spivey Hall Children’s Choir

Ohhh
I believe in the sun
Even when it is not shining
And I believe in love
Even when there’s no one there
And I believe in God
Even when he is silent
I believe through any trial
There is always a way
But sometimes in this suffering
And hopeless despair
My heart cries for shelter to know somones there
But a voice rises whithin me saying hold on my child
I’ll give you strength I’ll give you hope just stay a little while
I believe in the sun
Even when it is not shining
And I believe in love
Even when there’s no one there
But I believe in God
Even when he is silent
I believe through any trial there is always a way
May there someday be sunshine
May there some day be happiness
May there someday be love
May there someday be peace
