Hope is not a Plan

Thomas Jefferson
Jefferson and Friends

From my book, An Artist Empowered:

WE THE PEOPLE—did not hope or wish!

In English, the ubiquitous words ‘hope’ and ‘wish’ have particular meanings that are imbedded in the American and British psyche.

‘Hope’ and ‘wish’ are passive words; once informed, a creator wouldn’t willingly use them.

In the Declaration of Independence, we read: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Thomas Jefferson didn’t pen: We hope these truths are obvious. To its credit, there isn’t a single utterance of ‘hope’ or any other passive word in this magical document that the Founding Fathers bestowed upon posterity.

great article! both are different word hope and wish hope mean that you expect something to me and wish like you want to to do something that really amazing.
