A child's hope is that your father comes riding in on that white stallion and saves them. You can't make somebody love you the way you want them to love you, it's not a Leave it to Beaver type world. This isn't television. Life's a lot more cruel than that. -Jake Roberts

Jake Roberts has a hard enough time being Jake Roberts. The truth is a brutal thing, I just hope that the kids take the time to learn about each of the wrestlers in the game, and if the kids can learn from our mistakes, that would make me a happy man. -Jake Roberts

I can only hope that neither of my daughters was scarred by their upbringing. -Georg Solti

As I have said many times – my father was a great fan of Bill Dickey's and he certainly loved the Yankees. I hope that he would be pleased. -George Steinbrenner

I hope my work has inspired young artists. I have always tried to maintain my freedom as an artist and I feel it is one of the main reasons I have been successful. -Frank Frazetta

I hope in time N. H. as well as the other States will feel the importance of Sovereignty. -William Whipple

There have been a number of us working very, very hard to bring myth and fairy tales into public consciousness, through fantasy literature and other media. I hope we're succeeding in some small way. -Terri Windling

It's very much like filmmaking always is-you're always asked to do something that you're not sure you know how to do. So you make an educated guess as to what you think will work and you hope between that and plan B, that you can end up with a product that's really good. -John Dykstra

I hope we can build our offense and go out there and win games. -Jamal Lewis

On the other track I got to talk with Jon Poll, my editor, and we go into more detail about the decisions we made in both the production and the post-production. So I hope the combination becomes something worth collecting. -Jay Roach

Fortunately for me I was able to do well here, and it really did great things for my career and now hopefully I can go out there and continue to do what I did. -Latrell Sprewell

My training has been going really well these past few days and my goal is to keep it up for the next few weeks and hopefully earn a spot on the U.S. Olympic team. -Sasha Cohen

Mike gets to play four roles this time, if we ever did it again, he will play my role as well. He is a comic genius, everyone wants to be in this movie, let's hope that everyone will wish to see it as well. -Michael York

And as far as false hope, there is no such thing. There is only hope or the absence of hope-nothing else. -Patti Davis

In live action movies, you just hope that everything works. Because the actor may had a bad morning and doesn't play good, or accidents happen continuously. Many things contradict what you are trying to say. But in cartoons, nothing contradict what you want to say. -John Hench

I hope I am not too repetitive. However, coming to terms with death is part of the general human situation. -Margaret Mahy

In terms of having high hopes that the level of consciousness will get higher and higher, yeah. -Anthony Kiedis

All I wanted with that film was to represent the possibility that there might be normal people who are Muslim or Arab with the same fears, responsibilities, hopes. -Tony Shalhoub

It's a funny thing because you look at the careers of other filmmakers, and you see them sort of slow down, and you realize, maybe this becomes harder to do as you get older. That's sort of a cautionary thing. I hope it doesn't happen to me. -Joel Coen

Don't fear anything for your letters, they are burnt one by one and I hope you do the same with mine. -Camille Claudel

You promised to take care of me and not to turn your back on me. How is it possible that you never wrote to me even once and you never came back to see me? Do you think that it is fun for me to spend months, even years, without any news, without any hope! -Camille Claudel

I maintain that if there is such a thing as a true and honest environmentalist, it's people like Slim and hopefully me, who have been caretakers of the land all our lives, along with the generations before us. -Wilford Brimley

I had hoped that he has mouth smell or something other repelling, but nothing! It was even charming. -Michelle Hunziker

I think that as I continue to write, my writing I hope will become more controversial and more provocative. -Christopher Darden

We don't intend to always keep this necessarily African oriented. Originally I had hoped to have African American Indian of this area, and the Appalachian of this area, but at the same time, just as we have the Haitian room, we will always have room for another exhibit. -Katherine Dunham

The Americans are optimistic by their nature. And they are hopeful. -Chaka Fattah

I hope lots of people will join the solidarity march on May 7th and I hope things will change. -Anne Campbell

She said I did good and I think she was happy with what I did. She just wants me to get my higher Start Value vault, which I'll be competing at Trials and, hopefully, the Olympics. -Carly Patterson

Online publication is fine with me, in part because I hope to collect those stories later. -Gene Wolfe

We just said, 'Okay, you're in the movie. Bring what you would bring for a three-day weekend and I hope you like the way you look in it because once you're on camera, that's your wardrobe.' But it worked; it worked and we were very surprised. -John Sayles

Writing a song is much like being an author. Yes, we all have tools to write (everyone has a brain I hope!), but that doesn't all of a sudden make us best selling authors. -Ken Hill

So, my style has hopefully changed over the years and it is more relaxed, and I do tend to smile and have more than one expression these days hopefully – which I didn't at the beginning. -Jo Brand

Yes, I do often write poems from the mind, but I hope I don't ignore feelings and emotions. -Anne Stevenson

Early in last season, George was very worried about other people's emotions, especially how they saw her, and felt she was outside looking in. This year, she still hopes people will accept her for who she is, but if they don't, she's OK with that. -Ellen Muth

I hope the film will help mothers and fathers to be aware that 15 is a very vulnerable age. -Ellen Muth

I'd hope to reach any kid who feels apart from the group – those who seem to be outsiders, who feel different. Kids who want to reach their parents often don't know how to do so. -Ellen Muth

I want to make films that make a difference. I want to be out and hope that that will make things better for gay people and for myself. I hope one day I can start to make the kind of projects or be involved with kind of projects that can really make a difference. -Jill Bennett

Baseball presents a living heritage, a game poised between the powerful undertow of seasons past and the hope of next day, next week, next year. -John Thorn

I hope for peace and sanity – it's the same thing. -Studs Terkel

I hope that memory is valued – that we do not lose memory. -Studs Terkel

I think it's realistic to have hope. One can be a perverse idealist and say the easiest thing: 'I despair. The world's no good.' That's a perverse idealist. It's practical to hope, because the hope is for us to survive as a human species. That's very realistic. -Studs Terkel

I thought, if ever there were a time to write a book about hope, it's now. -Studs Terkel

So people are ready. I feel hopeful in that sense. -Studs Terkel

That's why I wrote this book: to show how these people can imbue us with hope. I read somewhere that when a person takes part in community action, his health improves. Something happens to him or to her biologically. It's like a tonic. -Studs Terkel

We use the word 'hope' perhaps more often than any other word in the vocabulary: 'I hope it's a nice day.' 'Hopefully, you're doing well.' 'So how are things going along? Pretty good. Going to be good tomorrow? Hope so.' -Studs Terkel

Why are we born? We're born eventually to die, of course. But what happens between the time we're born and we die? We're born to live. One is a realist if one hopes. -Studs Terkel

With optimism, you look upon the sunny side of things. People say, 'Studs, you're an optimist.' I never said I was an optimist. I have hope because what's the alternative to hope? Despair? If you have despair, you might as well put your head in the oven. -Studs Terkel

College was especially sweet because of the positive, hopeful atmosphere of a college campus. -Jerry Kramer

It is something that most parents hope for in life: That their children will be moderately successful, polite, decent human beings. Anything on top of that is something you have no right to hope for, but we all do. -Jerry Kramer

I really do hope that the people will like 14:59. The critics seem to like it. We got a lot of good reviews. -Mark McGrath

We don't necessarily always agree, but hopefully we make each other think, and that's what matters. -Vanessa Kerry

You hope your buddies will win so you don't have to loan them any money. -Chris LeDoux

To me, we're marketing hope. -Joel Osteen

I hope that you will learn to take responsibility for your decisions. Don't take counsel of your fears. -Thomas S. Monson

The Opera was a very cold film, a hopeless and dark film, no hope, no love. -Dario Argento

You just have to hope that they'll grant you an interview. -Lisa Guerrero

I hope to goodness I would not still be working in the corporate world – the money is OK but it is no life at all. -Nigel Dennis

The United States is the world's best hope, but if you fetter her in the interests and quarrels of other nations, if you tangle her in the intrigues of Europe, you will destroy her power for good and endanger her very existence. -Henry Cabot Lodge

If you are a friend of the Constitution as I am, I hope you will consider engaging me in the topics of my posts whether you agree or disagree with my position on a particular subject. -John Jay Hooker

No man made great by death offers more hope to lowly pride than does Abraham Lincoln; for while living he was himself so simple as often to be dubbed a fool. -Thomas Vernor Smith

Antwone's story was a story of hope and that's what appealed to me. I needed hope myself at that time. I think all actors give up at some time and think they're never going to make it. -Derek Luke

Her beauty didn't do her any good and she couldn't use it in any positive way or manipulative way. I just hope that people will look and see and believe in that hope of love, that hope of freedom, even if it was just for a limited time. -Diane Kruger

I make a note, set it aside, and hope it makes sense when the time comes to look at it again. -Donald E. Westlake

I wanted to write some lyrics that had some meaning to them, lyrics that were meaningful to me and hopefully people can take something from that. -Adam Rich

Some people think I'm a total moron and I would hope most people think I'm very good at what I do. -Dan Abrams
