Optimism: Thoughts on Thursday

Thoughts for Thursday is a feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is optimism. I've had a remarkably disheartening week, so I really needed this topic this week.  (For even more quotes, visit my other blog.)

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.--Dr. Seuss
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.--Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere's Fan
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.--Anne Frank
A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.--Winston Churchill
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.--Victor Hugo, Les Miserables
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.--Helen Keller
Optimism is the madness of insisting that all is well when we are miserable.--Voltaire
What is your favorite quote about optimism? Do you have one to add?
