“Hope” is the thing with feathers

by Emily Dickinson

“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.

Inspirational Quotes

“Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes we need to go back to where we started and reflect on where we went wrong. If we live our lives according to God’s will, then there is a message behind everything…. Hold on to your faith and keep close to your family. Smile to melt the pain and laugh to disperse all sorrows.”    ~ Maria Susan Geotina
