Quotes About Life Quotes

 

Optimism, no matter how false it may seem, is necessary for species survival at a time when the ozone layer is disintigrating, mass extinctions are rampant, wars are as plentiful as ever, toxins pervade every meal and every breath, and nuclear power plants function near populated areas with human error as likely there as anywhere else.

 


 

:GLORIA GARFUNKEL, "Lifeline," A Perilous Calling

 


 

For myself I am an optimist -- it does not seem to be much use being anything else.

 


 

:WINSTON CHURCHILL, speech, Nov. 9, 1954

 


 

Unsatisfied desire is the characteristic feature of human life. That is the common fact out of which both pessimism and optimism are constructed. Dwell on the impossibility of ever getting a state of complete and permanent satisfaction with what you have, and you become a pessimist. Dwell on the opportunity for endless growth and conquest which this same fact makes possible, and you become an optimist.

 


 

:WILLIAM DEWITT HYDE, The Art of Optimism

 


 

The essence of optimism is that it takes no account of the present, but it is a source of inspiration, of vitality and hope where others have resigned; it enables a man to hold his head high, to claim the future for himself and not to abandon it to his enemy.

 


 

:DIETRICH BONHOEFFER, Letters and Papers from Prison

 


 

Optimism inspires, energizes, and brings out our best. It points the mind toward possibilities and helps us think creatively past problems.

 


 

:PRICE PRITCHETT, Hard Optimism

 


 

Success requires enough optimism to provide hope and enough pessimism to prevent complacency.

 


 

:DAVID G. MYERS, Exploring Psychology

 


 

Optimism, then, is a fact within my own heart. But as I look out upon life, my heart meets no contradiction. The outward world justifies my inward universe of good.

 


 

:HELEN KELLER, Optimism: An Essay

 


 

In Europe, what Americans see as optimism can simply seem like arrogance.

 


 

:MARY FONTAINE, quoted in Working With Emotional Intelligence

 


 

Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words.

 

Keep your words positive, because your words become your behavior.

 

Keep your behavior positive, because your behavior become your habits.

 

Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values.

 

Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny.

 

:MAHATMA GANDHI, Open Your Mind, Open Your Life: A Book of Eastern Wisdom

 


 

If an optimist had his left arm chewed off by an alligator, he might say in a pleasant and hopeful voice, "Well this isn't to bad, I don't have a left arm anymore but at least nobody will ever ask me if I'm left-handed or right-handed" but most of us would say something more along the lines of "Aaaaaa! My arm! My arm!"

 


 

:DANIEL HANDLER (as Lemony Snicket), Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can't Avoid

 


 

The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.

 


 

:WILLIAM ARTHUR WARD

 


 

Thus will we deal with life, my little help-meet. Will we not, eh? What though it blink at us like an owl that is blinded by the sun, we will yet force it to smile.

 


 

:LEONID ANDREYEV, The Life of Man
