Sins Against Hope

The thing that I was trying to say then is the same thing that I am trying to say now; and even the deepest revolution of religion has only confirmed me in the desire to say it. For indeed, I never saw the two sides of this single truth stated together anywhere, until I happened to open the Penny Catechism and read the words,
"The two sins against Hope are presumption and despair."

- G. K. Chesterton, Autobiography [325-6]
