Optimist Quotes

Please enjoy these Quotes about Optimist and Friendship from my collection of Friendship quotes.

my testimony to the creed of optimism is worth hearing.

an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
- Winston Churchill

Every optimist moves along with progress and hastens it,
while every pessimist would keep the worlds at a standstill.

urges men to struggle against poverty,
ignorance and crime, and dries up
all the fountains of joy in the world.
- Helen Keller

because you're inside yourself, your body, you can't see yourself.

other people who are willing to tell you who you are,
which are usually judgmental people ...
we should really surround ourselves with the ones
that adore us and believe in the highest of us.

What if happiness is in our oneness with all creation?
What if happiness is about enjoying life exactly as it comes to us -
without chasing after it?
What if happiness is something we CHOOSE...
regardless of our circumstances?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
