Favorite Optimists And Pessimists Quotes

1. "Both optimists and pessimists contribute to society. The optimist invents the aeroplane, the pessimist the parachute."
Author: George Bernard Shaw
2. "For optimists, human life never needs justification, no matter how much hurt piles up, because they can always tell themselves that things will get better. For pessimists, there is no amount of happiness—should such a thing as happiness even obtain for human beings except as a misconception—that can compensate us for life's hurt. As a worst-case example, a pessimist might refer to the hurt caused by some natural or human-made cataclysm. To adduce a hedonic counterpart to the horrors that attach to such cataclysms would require a degree of ingenuity from an optimist, but it could be done. And the reason it could be done, the reason for the eternal stalemate between optimists and pessimists, is that no possible formula can be established to measure proportions and types of hurt and happiness in the world. If such a formula could be established, then either pessimists or optimists would have to give in to their adversaries."

Today's Quote

Es war kein Abenteuer-,sondern ein Reiche-Leute-Urlaub; die Infrastruktur ist wie in Florida, die Restaurants haben französische Köche, die Picknicks werden an Tischen mit Tischdecken, Porzellan und Sillber serviert, und wir wurden in großen Autos chauffiert. Es war beeindruckend. Aber ich war froh, wenn wir abends in unserer Suite waren. Oder wenn wir morgens auf dem Balkon saßen und die Sonne aufgehen sahen. Ob am Mittelmeer oder an der Nordsee - wir hatten die Sonne schon oft im Meer versinken, aber noch nie daraus aufstiegen sehen."
Author: Bernhard Schlink
