Hope is the via regia to of life.
In other words, hope in itself is life.
If there is no hope left, there is no life.
As said by Iqbal,
ملت کے ساتھ رابطہ استوار رکھ۔
پیوستہ رہ شجر سے امید بہار رکھ۔
Similarly, it is also said that hopelessness is equal to
denial to the very existence of Supreme Creator.
