Despair is the damp of hell, as joy is the serenity of heaven.
John Donne

Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.
H. G. Wells

Innumerable confusions and a feeling of despair invariably emerge in periods of great technological and cultural transition.
Marshall McLuhan

It’s curious how we act in moments of personal despair.
Lawrence Welk

Just as despair can come to one only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings.
Elie Wiesel

Law is born from despair of human nature.
Jose Ortega y Gasset

Let judges secretly despair of justice: their verdicts will be more acute. Let generals secretly despair of triumph; killing will be defamed. Let priests secretly despair of faith: their compassion will be true.
Leonard Cohen

Love seeketh not itself to please, nor for itself hath any care, but for another gives its ease, and builds a Heaven in Hell’s despair.
William Blake

Only a man who has felt ultimate despair is capable of feeling ultimate bliss.
Alexandre Dumas

The novel is born of disillusionment; the poem, of despair.
Jose Bergamin

We draw our strength from the very despair in which we have been forced to live. We shall endure.
Cesar Chavez

Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair.
William Cowper

You may not know it, but at the far end of despair, there is a white clearing where one is almost happy.
Joan Baez
