“It is not the presence of despair that ails you, but the absence of hope.”

Yes, I agree with the quote.
The presence of despair is only a temporary feeling which one has the ability to get over and move forward.
However, when it is "absent" that means you are down in a pit for your entire life. You will no longer have the ability to do anything. You won't move forward or back. You'll be at a standstill.
That truly in itself, is crippling.2
