Optimism

No bad news

I know that the enterprise is worthy. I know that things work well. I have heard no bad news. 

~ Henry David Thoreau

All clouds are not rain clouds.

~ Latin proverb

Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world any more. There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf.

~ Albert Schweitzer

Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.
~ Vaclav Havel
