“Between the optimist and the pessimist, the difference is droll. The optimist sees the doughnut; the pessimist the hole!”
“An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.”
“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.”
William Arthur Ward
“The optimist pleasantly ponders how high his kite will fly; the pessimist woefully wonders how soon his kite will fall.”
“While there are still more optimists than pessimists, this is the least optimistic that CFOs have been in the last two years.”
“Given the choice between being an optimist and a pessimist, I choose to be a realist! Simply put, a realist doesn't have to lie!”
Travis J Hedrick
