When we are flat on our backs there is no way to look but up.

There's no danger of developing eyestrain from looking on the bright side.

Another day over.
Objectives fulfilled.
Deadlines met.
Pigs fed and ready for take off.

All work completed;
All customers satisfied;
All staff happy;
All pigs fed and ready to fly.

All deadlines met;
All bosses pleased;
All important decisions made;
Temperature set at 0 deg C in hell.

When pessimists think they're taking a chance, optimists feel they're grasping a great opportunity.

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

The optimist proclaims we live in the best of all possible worlds; and the pessimist fears this is true. James B. Cabell

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.-- Sir Winston Spencer Churchill

If I didn't have spiritual faith, I would be a pessimist. But I'm an optimist. I've read the last page in the Bible. It's all going to turn out all right.--Billy Graham

Optimism is a kind of heart stimulus--the digitalis of failure. -- Elbert Hubbard
