Monday's Musing

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” - Winston Churchill

This is one of my favorite quotes of all time.

Enjoy your week! Make it a great one.

I agree with this sentence. Have you a nice spring. I'm sure we'll find a lot of oportunities.

As a kid, I was well known as the world's biggest pessimist. (I think I cultivated the reputation.) This was one of my favorite poems:


I also liked another one about optimists. I don't remember who wrote it, but it went:

The optimist fell ten stories.
At each window bar
He called to his friends in the window:
"I'm all right so far!"

Bingo. I sense that you fall far into the optimist realm.

My sweetie, the engineer, says "The glass is twice as big as it needs to be". :D
