This short statement caught my attention as I haven’t before seen such a tight correlation between time and hope, though I think about both a great deal.  But it makes sense, if having time allows fortunate things to come into play: relief, coincidence, progress, miracles. 

Does this resonate with you?  Send me your thoughts. 

‘Because time equals hope.’
