    Hi,

    Is ''The world survives on hope'' correct?

    Re: The world survives

    If you mean grammatically correct, it would be if you added a period to the end of the sentence.

    Whether it's true or not, I can't answer.

    Re: The world survives

    What about ''Life sustains on hope''?

    Re: The world survives

    Again, you forgot your period.

    With punctuation, it would also be grammatically correct.

    Re: The world survives

    Those are interesting sentences, Untaught. Did you compose them?

    Re: The world survives

    @Skrej, How can I add a full-stop? I think it's wrong to put a full-stop there. And yes, when I write it alone, I'll do that then.

    @Tarheel, I tried to translate it. It is used in my language. Do they make sense? What do they mean?

    Re: The world survives

    "The world survives on hope" means that we need hope just to keep trying.

    Eh?

    Re: The world survives

    Untaught88, you are right. Putting a full stop at the end of your sentence when it is followed by quotation marks and a question mark would be incorrect.

    The world survives on hope.
    Is "The world survives on hope" correct?
    I would like to say "The world survives on hope".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
