Meg Wheatley and hope

When I use the word hope, or see it, I see a parenthetical: Have you read Meg Wheatley’s writings about hope? You can Google a lot of her writings on it; where I first saw it was in her book So Far From Home. The gist I recall is that some of the things we do (like your work with your campaign or mine with Eldering), we cannot know if we are doing any good, or whether there will ultimately be any change in the world; so it is not well to hope for such things; yet we need to do the important work we are doing anyway. People have to march across that bridge even though they can be pretty sure somewhere down the road they will be killed. The work is the thing. Hope is for lesser times.
