"... hope, as an ancor for the soul" Very often we say: "Hopefully. .., I hope so..."
With what would you compare hope?
Why do we need to hope on things that could not happen? 
Is it bad to live with no any hope or one should have some?

We have a lot of expressions involving hope and I like them. Hope springs eternal (Die Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt „Hope is the last to die“ (German)). Where there’s life there’s hope. These are positive emotions we all need.

In spanish we say "la esperanza es lo último que se pierde" (hope is the last we loose). This is an old feeling and an old knowledge. In the ancient greek myth of Prometheus we can find Pandora's box, the box gods had put in all the pains and disgraces as a punishment to mankind. When Epimetheus (Prometheus brother) saw what was going out, he jump to close the lid. Only hope was left at the bottom.

I've never been certain if the story means we will always have hope with us or we will never see the hope that came linked to the pain.

Actually I believe that. Giving hope in the future is equal to the Oxygen we breath. Oftentimes what gives us the patience and perseverance to continue in this life is the hope, which provides us with the willpower to work on achieving goals in life, in which I think that living pointless and hopeless would lead to laziness and depression undoubtedly, if I decided to lose hope and give up to our lives' hardships I think I would head to commit suicide without being regretful, really this life is a big meh and requires absorbing it's shocking consecutive incidents to be able to continue.

YES, we need hope.

On the darkest days, hope and laughter are all we have to get through the absurdity of our lives.

That would highly depend upon what you are hoping for. If the hope is practically possible to achieve a goal, you will be easily charged to move on. Considering you cab see your English is being improved through day by day practice, you would be pleased to invest more time and effort in the following English study. 

However, if you are looking forward to something unrealistic such as being a rich man with no action done, you are torturing yourself in a sense and the hope would be totally none sense.
