Pessimist or Optimist
By William Arthur Ward

The pessimist finds fault; the optimist discovers a remedy.

The pessimist seeks sympathy; the optimist spreads cheer.

The pessimist criticizes circumstances; the optimist changes conditions.

The pessimist complains about the apple seeds; the optimist plants them.

The pessimist imagines impending peril; the optimist sees signs of prosperity.

The pessimist disparages; the optimist encourages.

The pessimist creates loneliness; the optimist finds friends.

The pessimist nibbles at the negative; the optimist is nourished by the positive.

The pessimist builds barriers; the optimist removes roadblocks.

The pessimist invents trouble; the optimist enriches the environment.

Which are you?

and believe the future is better than the past,
those few things get you through a lot of tough times.”
