A wish is the strong desire to receive something, or for something to happen. Prayers, grants, and hope can be synonymous with wishes. Wishes are often described in fairy tales and movies. On a personal level, mankind has many wishes for good, for fortune, for health, or to conceive a child.

A common place to wish is a wishing well, where the wisher customarily throws coins into the well as they wish.
