    Where do you place your hope?

    1. God. You realize that anything that exists comes from God, therefore, all hope is based upon him.
    2. The state. Perhaps you think that democracy is the key to hope in the world and the spreading of democracy. Perhaps you think that the hope of the poor resides with governmnet. Or perhaps you think that a new world order is needed to quell issues such as carbon emissions and over population etc.
    3. Yourself. You think that you should learn to trust yourself and your own intuition. You should learn to love yourself and realize that no one cares about you more than you do.
    4. Other (please specify).
    5. Actually you have lost all hope.

    5 is the closest for me- hope sounds like the emotion of someone with no conviction.

    Anyway , do you mean "I hope there is a god ", or "I hope I win 5 million bucks", ?

    Do you not know the definition of hope?

    Hope is what makes us get up in the morning. What do you hope for? Why get out of bed?

    I do, you apparently don't. I do not 'place hope in' anything. I hope for things that I wish to happen. In many cases, I hope for things that are unlikely to happen, and I know they are unlikely to happen.

    You've brought up the idea of 'hope is what makes us get up in the morning' before. As I've pointed out to you before, just because it is for you, doesn't mean it is for everyone. Perhaps you can't fathom this idea because it has such a huge influence on yourself.

    Why get out of bed? Because lying in bed day in and day out is very boring. Hope is not what gets me up, it is knowing that it is a new day and I don't know everything yet!

    Before you ask, I don't hope to know everything. That would also be very boring. What could one investigate then?

    I dont hope for anything. I'm more of a 'in the moment' guy.
    and if you dont hope for anything you'll never suffer dissapointment.
