The Count of Monte Cristo

In the Count's final letter to Maximilian, he says," until the day comes when God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these words: 'Wait and hope'!" What can you infer about the message Dumas is trying to send?

Dumas are saying that no matter how bad things get, patience and hope are the eternal truths to overcoming despair. Hope and patience kept Dumas going so many years in prison.
