“Hope is a lover’s staff.” – The Two Gentlemen of Verona

What a striking sentiment.  True.  Deep.  Concise.  Clear.  When you are young and in love, you hope the other will return your affection.  When you are later a newlywed, you hope your future will be bright and full.  Once you are a long time married, you hope the relationship stays the course, that your lover will not lose faith or lust.  After you are widowed/divorced, you hope you’ll find love yet again.  Hope really is the crutch all love leans upon.
