Quotable Sunday ~Optimism

I have always been a "glass is half full" sort of person. A true optimist at heart.
That is the way I feel about today, so here are some quotes for you about Optimism.


It's the attitude about life, man. Looking at the light instead of the dark. Looking at love instead of fear. ~ Quincy Jones


"Don't ever become a pessimist, Ira; a pessimist is correct oftener than an optimist, but an optimist has more fun and neither can stop the march of events." ~ Robert Heinlein


No person ever ended his eyesight by looking on the bright side. ~ Zig Ziglar


I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else. ~ Winston Churchill


"I am glad I am an optimist. The pessimist is half-licked before he starts." ~ Thomas A. Buckner


If the sky falls we shall catch larks. ~ American Proverb


Optimism means expecting the best, but confidence means knowing how to handle the worst. Never make a move if you are merely optimistic. ~ Zurich Axiom


One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn't pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself. ~ Lucille Ball

I love these! I try to be optimistic as much as possible (of course you wouldn't know that by some of my p.osts LOL)

As a "glass is 1/2 empty" person, I found these quotes to be uplifting. My favourite is: "Optimism means expecting the best, but confidence means knowing how to handle the worst. Never make a move if you are merely optimistic." ~ Zurich Axiom

My hubby and I balance each other out - I'm the optimist and he's the pessimist...I keep the dreams alive and he keeps me grounded! ;)

I really like the Zurich Axiom quote...I need to remember that! :)

Enjoy your Sunday! :)
