Quotes About Hope

"No matter what your past has been, you have a spotless future.

Hugh B. Brown,  CR 10/69:103

"Have you heard the old statement that 'hope springs eternal'? It can only be true if that hope springs from him who is eternal.

Russell M. Nelson, "A More Excellent Hope," Ensign, Feb. 1997, p. 61

"If we have this kind of ultimate hope, there is no room for proximate despair. If the big things that really matter are finally going to work out in eternity, then the little things that go wrong mortally are not cause for desperation but perhaps only for a little frustration and irritation."

Neal A. Maxwell, "Notwithstanding My Weakness," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1981], p. 50

"Happiness comes when scriptures are used in shaping our lives. They speak of the 'brightness of hope' (2 Ne. 31:20) for which we yearn. But if our hopes were narrowly confined only to moments in mortality, we should surely be disappointed. Our ultimate hope must be anchored to the Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ. He said, 'If you keep my commandments and endure to the end you shall have eternal life, which gift is the greatest of all the gifts of God.' (D&C 14:7)" 

Russell M. Nelson, "A More Excellent Hope," Ensign, Feb. 1997, p. 63
