William Arthur Ward

The optimist thinks this is the best of all possible worlds. The pessimist fears it is true.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
I'm not an optimist. I'm a realist. And my reality is that we live in a multifaceted, multicultural world. And maybe once we stop labeling ourselves, then maybe everyone else will.

The optimist underestimates how difficult it is to achieve real change, believing that anything is possible and it's possible now.

An optimist is someone who gets treed by a lion but enjoys the scenery.
John F. Kennedy
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
