Hope

Set all thy hope in God, and cleave tenaciously to His unfailing mercy. Who else but Him can enrich the destitute, and deliver the fallen from his abasement?

Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 323

The sword of thy rebellion hath felled the tree of thy hope . . . While there is yet time, return, and lose not thy chance.

Bahá’u’lláh, The Persian Hidden Words 21

This Day a door is open wider than both heaven and earth. The eye of the mercy of Him Who is the Desire of the worlds is turned towards all men. An act, however infinitesimal, is, when viewed in the mirror of the knowledge of God, mightier than a mountain. Every drop proffered in His path is as the sea in that mirror. For this is the Day which the one true God, glorified be He, hath announced in all His Books unto His Prophets and His Messengers.

Bahá’u’lláh, quoted in The Advent of Divine Justice, p. 65-66

Be thou hopeful and be thou happy and rejoiced. For I have supplicated and beseeched before the Threshold of the Almighty that thy wish may be realized, so thou mayest overcome the self and perform charitable deeds and that human perfections may appear from thee; that thou mayest be endowed with lofty gifts; find thy way to divine wisdom and show forth the manners and conduct of those who are favored in the Threshold of the Almighty.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá v3, p. 545

Do not wonder at the mercy and bounty of God.  Consider thou how one spark sets on fire a great forest. Therefore, there is great hope, and the favor and grace of the Almighty is limitless.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá v3, p. 639

In the conduct of life, man is actuated by two main motives: 'The Hope for Reward' and 'The Fear of Punishment'.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Paris Talks, p. 157
