Anchors Part One

Some nautical lore from High Seas.

The anchor is symbol with many different meanings:

Hope: support against the complications that life presents.

“Hope holds you fast like an anchor so you don’t give way.”

― Philip Pullman

“If we think about what hope actually is, it is nothing more than a state of optimistic mood in which our objective or aspiration seems likely to happen. Thus, hope presupposes confidence in achieving what we set out to make and desire. It is how an anchor works on a ship. Sailors set a course and an objective, the shipwreck is the greatest of concerns, but the anchor strengthens confidence and gives tranquility and hope.”
