Can Man Survive Without Hope?

Man includes Women. It is wittingly said that man can survive without food for a few months,without water for a few days,with artificial respiration for a few hours but cant survive without HOPE for a few minutes. A man without the hope of a better tommorrow will perish in no time. It is hope that sustain life on this planet. Is Hope ultimate elixir of Life?

I don't believe in hope too much. I think man can't live without happiness. For example, a poor man, he can live because he has a happy family. When we look at the a rich person, nobody can ensure he can live because he always thinks everyone fools him. He always thinks he live in trick live. It's very poor

Certainly we can survive without hope for a few minutes....but within a long period of time it will get more and more difficult to do. Without hope we live life in despair, only expecting the worst things to happen, becoming a full time pessimist. Within time, you will no longer want to survive, feel no need to eat, and get up in the morning. That is what will kill you - lack of food, water, and exercise.

hi preet for me hope only surface when we have some "desire" or when our life is not "satisfying" ... otherwise i dont have to have "hope" .. when i was young .. i hoped to get good grades in my exams when i was teenager .. i hoped i was beautiful and attractive when i started work .. i hoped to find a good man when i found the good man ... i hoped to be married now when i am married ... i hope for a child if and when i have a child ... i will hope for good health and wellbeing of my child and it goes on an on ... .. as even God hopes that we (his children) will be better human and love each other

it is true because in order to survive you should have hope, it makes you stronger and a reason to go on and move forward. We all know that living is like a competition, you also may encounter a lots of problem, thats why we must hope that everything will be ok.

no, i don't think that anybody can live without hope, because hope is something that no one can take away from you and you have it till you die. without hope you can't do anything in your life you will be sad and sad every time so hope is very important in life.
