What does "contradictory hopes" mean? I know the literally meaning but can you give me an example?
He is the receptacle of too many contradictory hopes.
Thanks a lot
Re: contradictory hopes
As a NES, but not a teacher:
What I believe it means is that he has many hopes, dreams and ambitions etc that may be mutually exclusive e.g. he wants to be a really great educator of underpriviledged young children, which may not make him rich (financially), but he also wants to be able to afford to drive a flashy new sports car.
Hope this helps
