Quotation: Leonard Cohen on Pessimism….(you’ll going to love this one!)


“I don’t consider myself a pessimist. I think of a pessimist as someone who is waiting for it to rain. And I feel soaked to the skin.” 
― Leonard Cohen

Half-empty vs. Half-full glass


A glass is neither half-full, nor half-empty: It may be either full with gas, or full with liquid, or falf full with liquid and gas. The liquid, unless in impoderability will fill the bottom of the glass containing it. So the pessimist is as optimistical as the optimist, and viceversa. Now, this is only in theory, as I never turned the glass
