Dum spiro, spero.
While there’s life, there’s hope.
This is a much-used quotation, whose derivation it is difficult to ascertain. The sentiment is reflected in similar, less succinct, passages by Greek pastoral poet Theocritus (310-250 BC) and Roman orator, statesman, essayist and letter writer Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC) .
