The definition of word "hope":
+5 rate 1. expectation, anticipation, wish
+3 rate 2. wish, anticipate, expect
+2 rate 3. Cape of Good Hope
+2 rate 4. in Christian thought, one of the three theological virtues, the others being faith and charity (love). It is distinct from the latter two because it is directed exclusively toward the future, as fervent desire and confident expectation. When hope has attained its object, it ceases to be hope and becomes possession. Consequently, whereas love never ends, hope is confined to man's life on Earth. The ancient Greeks used the term hope (elpis) in reference to an ambiguous, open-ended future; but the Resurrection of Jesus Christ gave the term, for Christians, a positive expectation and a moral quality. Throughout the New Testament, Christian hope is closely tied to the ultimate hope of the return of Jesus Christ as the judge of the living and the dead. Yet this eschatological hope does not eliminate intermediate hopes for lesser goods, even for material blessings. Generally, Christian manuals of doctrine and ethics have given more attention to faith and charity than to a detailed discussion of hope as such. Nevertheless, whenever there has been an unusual concern about the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come, theological discussions of hope have become very prominent, as has happened, for example, in mid-20th-century discussions of the theology of hope.

rate 7. Cape of Good Hope formerly (1826–1910) Cape Colony; Former province, South Africa. Occupying the southern extremity of the African continent, it comprised the southern and western portions of South Africa; its capital was Cape Town. The black state of Ciskei and parts of two others, Transkei and Bophuthatswana, lay within its boundaries. Its name refers to the Cape of Good Hope, 30 mi (50 km) south of Cape Town. The original inhabitants included Bantu, San and Khoekhoe peoples. Bartolomeu Dias, en route to India in 1488, became the first European to visit the area. A colony was founded by the Dutch at Table Bay in 1652; it was ceded to the British in 1814. It joined the Union of South Africa in 1910 and the Republic of South Africa in 1961. The province ceased to exist in 1994, when it was split roughly into Eastern Cape, Northern Cape and Western Cape provinces.

rate 14. city, seat (1939) of Hempstead county, southwestern Arkansas, United States, about 35 miles (56 km) northeast of Texarkana. It was founded in 1852 as a station on the Cairo and Fulton (now Union Pacific) Railroad and was named for the daughter of James Loughborough, a railroad land commissioner who laid out the townsite. It developed as a shipping centre for timber and agricultural products, notably watermelons, beef cattle, cotton, eggs and poultry. The economy is based on poultry processing, bakery goods and the manufacture of steel joists, auto parts, audio equipment and molded plastics. Hope is the birthplace (1946) of William J.

rate 18. a very slim hope or no chance at all. Example: There are just two chances, Buckley's or none. Etymology: This term is well known in both Australia and New Zealand but doesn't seem to be recorded anywhere else. That suggests that the Buckley concerned is a local person. The expression has been known in various forms; there are also the older and longer forms "Buckley's hope" and "Buckley's show"; the name is used alone in "New Zealand stands Buckley's of beating Australia at football", two notional possibilities that in reality amount to next to no chance at all. There are, as it happens, just two known choices for the answer about its etymology. One points to William Buckley, a convict in the early days of European settlement in Australia, who escaped in 1803 from the short-lived penal settlement at Port Philip Bay (where Melbourne is today) and lived for 32 years with the Aborigines in southern Victoria, gaining the sobriquet of The Wild White Man, before giving himself up and being pardoned. The implication is that, like Buckley, you have no chance of success, it being assumed that you measure success by an escape to a part of Australia colonised by European immigrants. One problem is that Buckley died in 1856, whereas the expression doesn't appear in print until 1895 (though that isn't a conclusive objection, since phrases are often transmitted orally for years before they get written down and Buckley's story became one of the most common anecdotes told about the early days of colonisation). The other possibility links it with the department store in Melbourne run by Messrs Buckley and Nunn, so that the expanded version, "there are just two chances, Buckley's or none", is a pun. However, that phrase isn't recorded until 1953 and one need to have William Buckley's exploits in mind before the pun achieves its full force.One must take his choice. At this distance in time our chance of finding out which, if either, is right is roughly Buckley's.
