Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.

Helen Keller


Be yourself

Both optimists and pessimists contribute to society. The optimist invents the aeroplane, the pessimist the parachute.

George Bernard Shaw



Optimism, that is healthy in its application, will inevitably result in better physical and emotional health.

Richard Bandler


A bright future ahead

I will say this about being an optimist – even when things don’t turn out well, you are certain they will get better.

Frank Hughes


Different positions

The optimist already sees the scar over the wound; the pessimist still sees the wound under the scar.

Ernst Schroder
