Quoting John Dunlop (in part):

"I can live in hope...I reckon the glass is half full."
-----
Living on hope without a foundation based in reality is folly. One cannot
feed themselves or their children on hope alone.

I "hope" things will get better. I "plan" that things will stay the same or
get worse. Things getting better is a benefit; planning for things remaining
the same or getting worse is reality.
