1,036.  I am fundamentally an optimist.  Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say.  Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward.  There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair.  That way lays defeat and death.  (Faith & Optimism & Humanity & South Africa)  Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom

 

 

7,457.  Sometimes a pessimist is only an optimist with extra information.  (Information & Pessimism & Optimism)  Idries Shah, Refections

84,258.  I’m an optimist.  No, an optimist, love.  It’s nothing to do with your eyes.  Ken Dodd, on stage

 

 

84,259.  I didn’t know optimism was compulsory.  Ian Pattison, Rab C Nesbitt, Community

 

 

84,260.  An optimist is a guy

that has never had

much experience.  Don Marquis, Archy and Mehitabel 1927  

 

 

1,069.  We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.  (Life’s Like That & Stars & Optimism)  Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere's Fan 1892

 

 

84,262.  Optimism is a strategy for making a better future.  Because unless you believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so.  Noam Chomsky 

 

 

84,263.  Things are always better in the morning.  Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird 

 

 

84,264.  ‘Optimism,’ said Cacambo, ‘What is that?’  ‘Alas!’ replied Candide, ‘It is the obstinacy of maintaining that everything is best when it is worst.’  Voltaire, Candide

95,088.  I learned to look more upon the bright side of my condition, and less upon the dark side, and to consider what I enjoyed, rather than what I wanted: and this gave me sometimes such secret comforts, that I cannot express them; and which I take notice of here, to put those discontented people in mind of it.  Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe

 

 

95,727.  There is a tendency for humans consciously to see what they wish to see.  They literally have difficulty seeing things with negative connotations while seeing with increasing ease items that are positive.  (Consciousness & See & Optimism)  Lionel Tiger, Optimism: The Biology of Hope
