Hope is the feeling we have that the feeling we have is not permanent.

Mignon McLaughlin

Famous for her clever aphorisms, journalist Mignon McLaughlin summarizes the nature of hope here in a simple but powerful way.

Hard times are not permanent, and holding on to hope that this, too, shall pass, is what gives us strength to get through them.
