About This Quote

When you are in the depths of despair, keep your heart light. Don’t get discouraged or let your spirits get down. Expect the worst because this is where hope comes from. Even though there will be times when you can’t see how things might change for the better, you must never give up hope. You have to be positive, optimistic and always have a dream because that is what keeps you going.
