I happened to read this wonderful quote, when I was going through some books.
Hope is the ability to hear the music of the future ; Faith is the ability to dance to it today !
A wonderful quote, is it not ?
Hope and Faith - two very beautiful concepts, very nicely intertwined !
I am reminded of the story many of us are sure to have read as a part of Aesop's Fables.
God gifts a box to Man and asks him to safeguard it, as it contains all things that he needs for a wonderful life on earth, full of peace. However, God specifically instructs man to avoid opening the box; if he does so, he's sure to lose the gifts inside.
Man is not able to contain his curiosity for long, and he pays no heed to God's words as he opens the box.
And out fly the gifts, one by one.
Realising his folly, Man closes the box and summons God with his prayers, repenting now for his foolishness.
God replies, that Man has to pay the price for his impudence.
The only gift remaining inside is Hope.
And that's the only gift from God, that has propelled Man forward, ever since !!
This is a Diamante created for Hope and Faith, the supplementing concepts of life...
Belief , Reliance, Trust , Aspiration
Helping, convincing, resurrecting,
Signing off with this, for the day ! :-)
