Words We Stand By

Quotes:

"The world is the gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong." —Swami Vivekananda

“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” —Jane Goodall

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” —Dr Martin Luther King Jr

Hope Theory:

"Hope is the belief that the future will be better, and you have the power to make it so. Hope is based on three main ideas: desirable goals, pathways to goal attainment, and agency (willpower) to pursue those pathways.” —Hope Theory: Rainbows in the Mind

“Hope is defined as the perceived capability to derive pathways to desired goals and motivate oneself via agency thinking to use those pathways. The adult and child hope scales that are derived from hope theory are described. Hope theory is compared to theories of learned optimism, optimism, self-efficacy, and self-esteem. Higher hope consistently is related to better outcomes in academics, athletics, physical health, psychological adjustment, and psychotherapy. Processes that lessen hope in children and adults are reviewed. Using the hope theory definition, no evidence is found for "false" hope. Future research is encouraged in regard to accurately enhancing hope in medical feedback and helping people to pursue those goals for which they are best suited.” —Snyder, C. (2002).
