Hope and Despair

Hope is like wearing clothes. Despair is like realizing that you left your jacket at home and you can’t get it before you will freeze for three hours outside. You think of several hundred ways to get that jacket, but you’re unwillling to sacrifice your own pickiness to wear someone else’s and would rather suffer the cold than wearing a stranger’s jacket.

  1. What about the factor of being too shy to ask someone to borrow their jacket? That is, the “despair” of asking someone for help in order to regain that “hope”?
