Where does Hope Come From? Prosperity

How did the word hope come into being? Old English Hopen, older root usage behind pen is spe, sper, esperance (Old Spanish for hope), despair (not hope), all from earlier Latin sperus, prosper. Spare the prosperity? 

I like looking at this word.  Does anyone have the source for Shepard Fairey’s original PDF?
