Optimism…


“We’ve all heard the story of a young optimist who was placed in a room full of horse manure. He immediately began to dig feverishly into the pile.”

“When asked why he was doing this he replied, ‘With all this manure, I just know that there has to be a pony in here, somewhere.'”

“Optimism, of course, can be carried too far when it ignores reality.”

“But, pessimism ignores opportunity, and besides, a pessimist is pretty boring.”
