This is a text I came across and it pictures exactly what HOPE Cape Town is about… or better what makes the people of HOPE Cape Town work so hard…
Deep within ourselves we carry hope. If that is not the case, there is no hope.
Hope is a quality of the soul, regardless of what is happening in the world. Hope is not prediction or seeing into the future.
It is an attitude of the mind and spirit, an attitude of the heart, anchored beyond horizon.
Hope is this deep and powerful sense and is not the same as joy because everything is going well, or willingness to aim for something that may lead to success.
Hope is working towards a goal because it is good, not because there is a chance of achievement.
Hope is not the same of optimism; neither the conviction that something will end well.
It is the conviction that something is worthwhile,
regardless of the outcome,
regardless of the result
