Despair Quotes


Drawn to the depths of despair, one needs to reach deep inside to pull out of it. Despair quotes can give us the strength we need to realize that despair is not a life sentence, but merely a line, verse or chapter in our lives. It can also help us see the hope that rises out of the ashes of despair. Marion Zimmer Bradley said it well, “The road that is built in hope is more pleasant to the traveler than the road built in despair, even though they both lead to the same destination." Despair quotes can lift us up and propel us higher than we thought possible. Reference.com Definition of Despair
