Optimist: Always Look Ahead.

When asked to describe a glass of water whether it's half-full or half-empty, my answer would always be "half-full".

I would describe myself as an optimist with a can-do attitude. Today, I came across this article that I would like to share with you.

The first school despairs because it foresees inevitable ruin. The second school is hopeful — but only because these intellectuals foresee ruin, too, and can hardly wait for the decadent modern world to be replaced by one more to their liking. Every now and then, someone comes along to note that society has failed to collapse and might go on prospering, but the notion is promptly dismissed in academia as happy talk from a simpleton. Predicting that the world will not end is also pretty good insurance against a prolonged stay on the best-seller list.
