    all is not lost

    Please help me with the definition of this phrase in the following contexts. Many thanks!

    1. All is not lost. That is the message Bafana Bafana players are promoting ahead of their difficult 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup clash against New Zealand.

    2. A dialog between a doctor and his patient:
    Doctor: Do you read Kabir?
    Patient: I like Kabir.
    Doctor: All is not lost. What does Kabir say about recovery?

    It means there is still hope (for a positive outcome).
