how would you say 'through hope and faith I will prevail' in latin?

Some of my friends and I are graduating college soon and they talked me into getting a tattoo with them. So I really wouldn't want anything that didn't mean anything to me and that saying is something that I came up with when life was tough for me...any help would be of great significance!

    fide et spe praestabo. However, you could also say: Fide et spe praesto, which means Through hope and faith I prevail/succeed/excel (present tense). I like it better because it's shorter and I just don't like the look or sound of the Latin future tense.

    "Noli illegitimi carborundum." - don't let the bastards grind you down.

    Which isn't a literal translation (this is latin, after all) but it's pretty close and in the spirit of similarity ;)

    ETA - to those people who marked this down, can't you take a joke?
