Hope ... a fundamental deceit ... ?

​James Hillman in his book on 'Suicide and the Soul' (1997) says 'Hoping is not hoping for what one hopes for; one hopes not for that which is already known.  Such hope is hope for the wrong thing.  It is illusion.  He quotes Eliot:

'I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope

For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love 

For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith 

But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.'

T.S Eliot, Four Quartets 1944
