Day 32 of the ‘Post A Day 2011′ challenge: Are you an optimist, a pessimist, or something else?
Guess my life’s motto says it all:
Dance in the rain!
Art by Marie-Gold
An optimist is the human personification of spring. ~Susan J. Bissonette
A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. ~Winston S. Churchill
A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn’t see the clouds at all – he’s walking on them. ~Leonard Louis Levinson
If an optimist had his left arm chewed off by an alligator, he might say, in a pleasant and hopeful voice, “Well, this isn’t too bad. I don’t have my left arm anymore, but at least nobody will ever ask me whether I am right-handed or left-handed,” but most of us would say something more along the lines of “Aaaaah! My arm! My arm!” ~Lemony Snicket
