Acting is something I love. It’s a great craft that I have a lot of respect for. But I don’t think it’s any greater challenge than teaching 8-year-olds or any other career. In my life, I try not to make it more important than it is and I just hope that rubs off on the people around me.

My hope is that that person will come forward that can win the presidency that we can all get behind.

— Jennifer Lopez

I hope people don’t compare 2D and 3D because 3D’s new, it’s unfair to compare to 2D which is really sophisticated, even when we’re jaded about it. 3D just began, give it a chance, let the equipment and projection system catch up and be better, let the price go down, let more filmmakers get a hold of it more easily.

— Ang Lee

If we become too scared to confront the chief problems of our time, there is no hope of ever solving them.

— Jim DeMint

— Henry Louis Gates

He is the best physician who is the most ingenious inspirer of hope.

Hope is the cordial that keeps life from stagnating.

— Samuel Richardson

I hope the fans have enjoyed listening as much as I’ve enjoyed doing the games. I don’t ever go to the park where I don’t have a good day. I don’t like losing. But I don’t think I ever go to the park where I have a bad day. I don’t think once.

— Bob Uecker

— Diablo Cody

You know, it shouldn’t just be about women as heroic figures overcoming things, it just needs to be about women in general getting the opportunity to play a multitude of roles, telling a multitude of stories – just to express human experience from a woman’s perspective. I hope, someday, we can get to that point. I’m all about representation.

— Diablo Cody

— David Attenborough

I had a huge advantage when I started 50 years ago – my job was secure. I didn’t have to promote myself. These days there’s far more pressure to make a mark, so the temptation is to make adventure television or personality shows. I hope the more didactic approach won’t be lost.

— David Attenborough

The climate, the economic situation, rising birth rates none of these things give me a lot of hope or reason to be optimistic.

— Rita Mae Brown

There is something uniquely depressing about the fact that the National Portrait Gallery’s version of the Barack Obama ‘Hope’ poster previously belonged to a pair of lobbyists.

— Thomas Frank

I mean, I get letters in the mail because I had a heart defect when I was one, I had surgeries and stuff.

In our recovery package we put new standards of accountability and transparency, which we hope will now apply.

— J. C. Watts

I mean, why am I considered an ‘it girl?’ Because I’m in a lot of movies right now or am on the covers of magazines? I just hope there is something solid behind that.
