Man can live about forty days without food, about three days without water, about eight minutes without air... but only for one second without hope.
I had a relative idea about how long you could live without food and water, but I certainly never thought of hope in the same way. But I guess life really isn't worth living if you don't have it.
I'm going to have to give this some more thought... Lately I have been too busy to hope for anything and apparently that isn't a good thing at all. Off to make a list of what I can hope for. :)
