death in the beginning and death in the end

“There was death at the beginning as there would be death again at its end. Though whether it was some fleeting shadow of this that passed across the girl’s dreams and woke her on that least likely of mornings, she would never know. All she knew, when she opened her eyes, was that the world was somehow altered.”
(Excerpt from The Horse Whisperer by Nicolas Evans)

To have hope is to want an outcome that makes your life better in some way. It not only can help make a tough present situation more bearable but also can eventually improve our lives because envisioning a better future motivates you to take the steps to make it happen. … Everyone hopes for something.
