“We [Christians] must divest ourselves of hope which … is reliance on things turning out well for ourselves … in the future. This kind of hope would be ‘hope for the wrong thing’, that is, for satisfaction or fulfilment, for improvement and well-being, in temporal affairs. Christian hope demands the laying aside of this kind of ‘hope’. It involves a trust which would survive the defeat or disappointment of all earthly hopes.” – Harry Blamires, Word Unheard. A Guide Through Eliot’s Four Quartets, London and New York, Routledge, 2016 (originally Methuen, 1969) p. 62.
