Emily Dickinson - Hope is a strange invention --

Hope is a strange invention --
A Patent of the Heart --
In unremitting action
Yet never wearing out --

Of this electric Adjunct
Not anything is known
But its unique momentum
Embellish all we own --

Emily Dickinson gives one a wonderful idea of what hope really is. Although we cannot see or hold hope, it is what runs our lives and gives meaning to everything we do.
