George Trumbull Ladd:
What May I Hope?; An Inquiry Into The Sources And Reasonableness Of The Hopes Of Humanity, Especially The Social And Religious - new book

Evidently, then, Hope stood in his thought as a foremost efficient psychological force for explaining the actions of the human race. Something like this same view was concealed in the saying of Goethe who declared, Hope is the second soul of the unhappy;--for this would seem to imply that when all the life has gone out of an individual or a nation, if only the emotion of hoping can be revived, another efficient active principle may be incorporated into the same dead body. Such language as has just been quoted is indeed figurative and does not serve strictly to define either the nature or the sources of the various attitudes of the mind which we are accustomed to characterize by the one word Hope. It does, however, suggest certain important inquiries. Among inquiries into the nature and sources of hope the most obvious one, perhaps, concerns itsel...
