I decide to copy-paste a sentence as the first article.
“Hope… is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously headed for early success, but, rather, an ability to work for something because it is good, not just because it stands a chance to succeed.” Vaclav Havel, Disturbing the Peace, pp. 181-182
