I went to Goodreads to search for some quotes on optimism, and a lot of them came from Roy T. Bennett.  I don’t actually know who he is, but the cynic in me is suspicious of anyone that optimistic.


“The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds; and the pessimist fears this is true.”
― James Branch Cabell, The Silver Stallion


“It’s snowing still,” said Eeyore gloomily.
“So it is.”
“And freezing.”
“Is it?”
“Yes,” said Eeyore. “However,” he said, brightening up a little, “we haven’t had an earthquake lately.”
― A.A. Milne


I’m not going to tag anyone specifically, but feel free to join in the fun!
