“An optimist is like a tea kettle that manages to whistle even though it is up to its neck in hot water.” An optimist in actual life: A soldier who had lost both arms and legs in war yet was grateful becuase, “I still have my health and strength left.” He has something else besides — his indomitable spirit. In the struggle called life, we all need to be optimists.
