I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?
Here goes blog quote #214...
"No one really knows enough to be a pessimist."
Stress the words 'really knows enough' and re- read it.
Isn't this ingenious?
Why?..... If you think about it... who really knows the future, other than the deity? Why do people go around saying negative stuff about what is going to happen later on today, this week, this year?
"It's gonna rain later". "Business is going to be bad this week". "I'll never win the jackpot."Team "x will never make it".
Excuse me, but where is the crystal ball? Why always take the pessimistic side?
Remember this.. in the world of optimism vs pessimism.. its a CHOICE in your MIND. Why the heck would you choose the latter?
If you have the option.. always, always, always take the optimistic view. Remember.. many a wizard has spoken that Thoughts Become Things. Even if you don't believe that (pessimism,by the way), what does it hurt to at least think positive?
That's my view....... What Say You?
