A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn’t see the clouds at all – he’s walking on them.
~ Leonard Louis Levinson
I guess that would make me a philosopher.
Which explains why I never really felt like a pessimist or an optimist I guess. Sure, sometimes I feel like one or the other but, most of the time I can see both sides of the situation and realize that they are both being blind that which they don’t want to see. Although I guess I do lean a bit toward the optimist side, mostly because I’d like to believe that everything is sunshine and lollipops, even when I know it’s usually not.
Well that cleared up a lot didn’t it?
