“...tribulation brings about perseverance; perseverance, proven character, and proven character; hope; and hope does not disappoint...” Paul of Tarsus, ancient Hebrew scholar
“Students with high hope set themselves higher goals and know how to work hard to attain them. When you compare students of equivalent intellectual aptitude on their academic achievements, what sets them apart is hope.” C.R. Snyder, Psychologist, University of Kansas, studied freshman and found that hope was a better predictor of academic achievement than the SAT.
“Indeed, people who are hopeful evidence less depression than others as they maneuver through life in pursuit of their goals, are less anxious in general,, and have fewer emotional distresses.” Daniel Goleman in Emotional Intelligence, Bantam Books Incorporated, July 1997.
