Travel Hopefully Notebook
Inspiring quotes are like feel-good movies. Even though many of us would like to think that we were immune to the sugary manipulation; they tend to cut through anyway. A universal theme is hard to ignore.
We like this quote from Robert Louis Stevenson.
An optimist, by definition, assumes that victory is ever within sight. Whereas a pessimist assumes that defeat is assured. Meanwhile, life goes on. The optimist lives a life of hope and action (and being open to opportunity, tends to receive more). The pessimist is more likely to live the passive life of a victim.
But here's the main thing: the outcomes are actually irrelevant to the quality of the lives lived!
Is this too simplistic?
