    have hopes in our life

    We have dreams in our life.

    Can we also say 'We have hopes in our life'?

    Could I ask native English teachers to help me? Thank you very much.

    Re: have hopes in our life

    Yes, you can, but this could lead into deep discussion.

    Hopes and dreams are not precisely synonymous.

    I dream of living in a perfect world AND I hope to live in a perfect world have different connotations.

    "dream of" = consider possible [cf Martin Luther King: I have a dream...]

    "hope for something" = want something to happen
