Mental Snacktime - Optimism

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” – Helen Keller

“Human spirit is the ability to face the uncertainty of the future with curiosity and optimism. It is the belief that problems can be solved, differences resolved. It is a type of confidence. And it is fragile. It can be blackened by fear and superstition.” – Bernard Beckett

“Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power.”
William James

“Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier.” – Colin Powell

“The essence of optimism is that it takes no account of the present, but it is a source of inspiration, of vitality and hope where others have resigned; it enables a man to hold his head high, to claim the future for himself and not to abandon it to his enemy.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“Optimism is the foundation of courage.” – Nicholas M. Butler
