outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life. It is the "feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out
for the best
" or the act of "looking forward to with desire and reasonable
" or "feeling that something desired may happen". Other definitions are "to
a desire with anticipation"; "to desire with expectation of obtainment"; or "to expect with confidence". In the English language the word can be used as either a noun or a verb, although hope as a concept has a similar meaning in either use.
