Hope and Desire

Hope is different from Desire.
We hope for better weather, we desire to go on a cruise to the Caribbean.
We hope for peace, but we desire to make our world a little better.

Hope is an expectation,
Desire is an intention.

Hope is passive, it waits for things to happen by themselves.
Desire is active. We want to do something and often take appropriate action.
