Quote of the Day
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
Truth is, I'll never know all there is to know about you just as you will never know all there is to know about me. Humans are by nature too complicated to be understood fully. So, we can choose either to approach our fellow human beings with suspicion or to approach them with an open mind, a dash of optimism and a great deal of candour.
Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A world of optimism and hope. A 'you can do it' when things are tough.

Through my optimism I naturally prefer and capture the beauty in life.
With optimism, you look upon the sunny side of things. People say, 'Studs, you're an optimist.' I never said I was an optimist. I have hope because what's the alternative to hope? Despair? If you have despair, you might as well put your head in the oven.
I do believe that most men live lives of quiet desperation. For despair, optimism is the only practical solution. Hope is practical. Because eliminate that and it's pretty scary. Hope at least gives you the option of living.
Optimism means better than reality; pessimism means worse than reality. I'm a realist.
I'm not interested in blind optimism, but I'm very interested in optimism that is hard-won, that takes on darkness and then says, 'This is not enough.'

Optimism doesn't wait on facts. It deals with prospects. Pessimism is a waste of time.
I don't think in terms of optimism and pessimism when writing a story. I am telling a story.
If you pretend to be good, the world takes you very seriously. If you pretend to be bad, it doesn't. Such is the astounding stupidity of optimism.
The essence of optimism is that it takes no account of the present, but it is a source of inspiration, of vitality and hope where others have resigned; it enables a man to hold his head high, to claim the future for himself and not to abandon it to his enemy.
There's a lot of optimism in changing scenery, in seeing what's down the road.
There are grounds for cautious optimism that we may now be near the end ofthe search for the ultimate laws of nature.
I believe any success in life is made by going into an area with a blind, furious optimism.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
