something that might help someone keep going, but just makes failure feel a lot worse if it happens.
it was hope that let him keep trying to make things work out with the girl, but it was also what made him feel like shit when things didn't.

Hope is a feeling, faint in your heart and soul. Sometimes you forget that it is there, but it can weather any storm. You can feel it anywhere you are, if you choose to remember how. Never lose hope! It will carry you through your darkest times and make you smile in some of your happiest.
Hope is the thing with feathers,
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops, at all.

And sweetest in the gale is heard,
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird,
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea
Yet never in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

Having one person everyday that means the world to you. Having hope in something or someone.
Hope does not understand how much he means to me.

Something that's bigger than anything, even fear.

Something that can survive burning fires and raging wars.
It is humanity's greatest strength and they're biggest weakness.
Despite everything that happened, hope helped her keep going.

A pretty, nice, caring girl who is very fun to be around. She does not like doing dangerous stuff but is adventurous at some times. She is always sarcastic but doesn't laugh a ton. She likes guys but guys that don't live near her. She's "that hope chic"
1. Oh my god! Your being like so hope right now I love it!

2. Haha! Your like a sarcastic hope!
