Hope breathes in life (FHL: Faith > Hope > Life)
There is hope, so there is life; not the other way around, like Tolstoy (TJKCB notes)
"Hope breathes in life" captures the essence of how hope animates and sustains our existence. It suggests that hope is not just a passive element but an active and life-giving force. It implies that hope is an integral part of our being, like the very breath that keeps us alive.
While Tolstoy eloquently explores the profound depths of life, it's essential to recognize that hope, like a guiding light, contributes to our resilience and the belief that circumstances can improve. In the tapestry of life, hope weaves a thread that connects us to the possibility of a brighter tomorrow. So, in the face of suffering and challenges, holding onto hope becomes a beacon that not only sustains us but also propels us forward on the journey of life.
The positive outlook that hope can bring to life is a perspective that focuses on the potential for improvement and the resilience that hope can provide in challenging circumstances.
In response to Tolstoy's perspective, which acknowledges the depth of life, the divine, and the acceptance of suffering, my line could be seen as a complement. While Tolstoy delves into the profound aspects of existence, my statement adds another layer by highlighting the driving force of hope, suggesting that hope itself is a vital component of our experience of life.

Meaning: As long as you are alive, there is hope as your situation may improve
This saying was found in antiquity.
Millennia later, Tolstoy expounded: "Life is everything. Life is God.
Everything changes and moves and that movement is God. And while there is life
there is joy in consciousness of the divine. To love life is to love God. Harder
and more blessed than all else is to love this life in one's sufferings, in
He mentioned dukkah and missed hope. He could be a Buddhist :-)
The tapestry metaphor provides the knotty tangles of life and rich complexity for the sake of a coherent story.
We look at life from the back side of the tapestry. We don't accomplish anything in this world alone, and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one's life, and all the weavings of individual threads form one another that create something.
Culture is the beautiful tapestry that weaves together the fabric of our society. It encompasses the beliefs, customs, traditions, and art forms that define a particular group of people. In an increasingly interconnected world, the significance of cultural diversity cannot be overstated.
Wholly linen tapestries were made in ancient Egypt, while Copts, or Egyptian Christians, and medieval Europeans sometimes used linen for the warp. Cotton and wool were employed for pre-Columbian Peruvian tapestries as well as for some of the tapestries made in the Islamic world during the Middle Ages.
Tapestries continued to be popular throughout European history, with notable examples such as Raphael's cartoons (c. 1515–1516), Rubens' Triumph of the Eucharist, and Charles Le Brun's series of the History of France (1663–1683).
Since the times of Ancient Rome, images of the Christian faith, including cherubs and angels, have been painted on fresco walls in Europe in the 13th century as decor. This evolved into wall tapestries that were used to depict important biblical events and stories.
God is weaving His tapestry according to a specific plan for a specific purpose: to tell the story of His love and glory across time. His promises are the unbreakable threads stretching across time from creation to eternity; into and around these are woven the colorful fibers spun from every tribe, tongue, and nation.
The Psalmist weaves a beautiful tapestry of God and Creation, of land and earth and sky and sea. He weaves in a vision of all the works of creation for all of God's children to see, and finally the strand of human creativity and partnership with God in the creation and building of God's kingdom.
Hope of 1998 Nobel laureate José Saramago of Portuguese to life. "With no help or guidance except curiosity and the will to learn, my taste for reading developed and was refined." His quote highlights the power of hope, self-motivation, and a thirst for knowledge as the driving forces behind Saramago's intellectual development. It emphasizes the hope that, in the absence of formal guidance, an individual's inherent curiosity and the will to learn can lead to the cultivation and refinement of a sophisticated taste for literature.
Despite a poor background, Saramago's early exposure to reading and writing to Hope was not facilitated by external support but rather fueled by his own intrinsic curiosity and determination to learn.
Saramago's journey as a lifelong learner is characterized by the diverse roles he assumed, ranging from a mechanic at a car repair shop to a journalist. Each phase of his life contributed to the mosaic of his understanding, shaping his worldview and influencing the unique blend of imagination, compassion, and irony that permeates his writings.

Hope is the opposite to 物质决定意识--Material conditions determine consciousness, not hope: their own behaviour, perception of risk, and attitudes towards material conditions rooted in his box of The basic premise is that the economic and material conditions of society, such as the mode of production and distribution, shape the prevailing ideas, values, and consciousness of individuals within that society. This concept is a key element in Marxist historical materialism, which examines the relationship between the material conditions of existence and the social and ideological structures that arise from them.
Dualism: René Descartes and other dualists advocate a division between the mind (consciousness) and body.
Functionalism: Functionalists focus on the functions of consciousness rather than its specific physical substrate. From this perspective, consciousness is more about the processes and functions it serves rather than a specific location.
Karl Marx's Materialism: Materialist philosophies assert that consciousness is entirely based on physical processes and is a product of the brain. In this view, consciousness is intricately tied to the body.
