“Hope does not arise from being told to think positively. Hope is the elevating feeling we experience when we see – in the mind’s eye – a path to a better future. The path acknowledges the significant obstables and deep pitfalls and has no room for delusion. Hope gives us the courage to confront our circumstances and the capacity to surmount them. We are just beginning to appreciate the power of hope and have not defined its limits. I see hope as the very heart of healing.”
– Dr Jerome Groopman, Harvard Medical Professor and Author of the book The Anatomy of Hope.
