"I am anti-life, the Beast of Judgement. I am the dark at the end of everything. The end of universes, gods, worlds … of everything. And what will you be then, Dreamlord?"
"I am Hope."
― Choronzon and Dream, playing "the oldest game", in Sandman #4: "A Hope in Hell"
"Until that time, you must light the darkness. You must make the night less empty. We are all small, and the universe is vast. But a universe filled with voices saying "I am here" is far greater than a universe silent. One voice is small, but the difference between zero and one is as great as one and infinity. And when your time is passing, please send this message on, so the next voice can speak against the darkness."
― SCP-1281/Harbinger's Message (SCP Foundation)
"Yeah, well, the reason he doesn't is Barry's real superpower isn't speed. It's hope. Kid's got an endless reservoir. Believes everything's gonna work out."
― H.R. Wells on the Flash (The Flash (2014)
