The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds; and the pessimist fears this is true.
The point of living and of being an optimist, is to be foolish enough to believe the best is yet to come.
You can do anything you think you can. This knowledge is literally the gift of the gods, for through it you can solve every human problem. It should make of you an incurable optimist. It is the open door.
“Do you know what a pessimist is?” “A man who thinks everybody is as nasty as himself, and hates them for it.”
For me, I choose optimist. It’s too easy to fall into the depression of pessimism. Fight it with all your might and keep your optimism alive.
