Hope Is

This is a good one:

Hope is the belief in your ability to recover from whatever has knocked you down on any given day. Resilience is the ability to recover from the punch and the land on your feet, or on your own butt, or whatever supports you at that time. To cultivate your physical resilience, you must have mental resilience that comes from a place called hope.

- Rosalind Joffe from her and Joan Friedlander’s book,
Women, Work, and Autoimmune Disease: Keep Working, Girlfriend
