Filed under: Uncategorized — bitchontheblog @ 05:44

Jean, and Gaelikaa,  in response to your optimism/pessimism juxtaposition:

The optimist looks at the hole of the doughnut and hopes it’s as tiny as possible. The pessimist expects mustard instead of jam in his. Now WHO is disappointed?

  1. Actually I’m a tragic optimist a la Viktor Frankl. It has nothing to do with a rosy view of life/the future. It has to do with having a defiant spirit.

  2. “Defiant spirit”, Jean: One of the best definitions of optimism I have ever come across. It’s not only inspired but informed.
