“Nature has fixed no limits on our hopes.”

– Björk

Meaning of the quote

Hope is available to all. Hope knows no class, structure, wealth, race, nationality, or gender. Even those without any money or possessions at all can still possess hope. Hope is the most difficult thing to take from a human being. Optimism and faith first rely on hope for their existence. Hope is the driver of everything. Hope is fearless. Hope defeats despair. Hope has no time limits or expiration date – hope is eternal.

Origin of quote

The quote comes from the song Hope, from Björk’s sixth studio album, Volta, released in 2007. The song was written by Björk and Timothy Mosley.
