//// Wiki definition....Hope : Hope is a belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life. Hope implies a certain amount of despair, wanting, wishing, suffering or perseverance — i.e., believing that a better or positive outcome is possible even when there is some evidence to the contrary. [1]
Beyond the basic definition, usage of the term hope follows some basic patterns which distinguish its usage from related terms:
To wish for something with the expectation of the wish being fulfilled. [2]
Hopefulness is somewhat different from optimism in that hope is an emotional state, whereas optimism is a conclusion reached through a deliberate thought pattern that leads to a positive attitude.
