  1. i am not an optimist. i do not believe in optimism. i think expectations are the root of all disappointment. if you expect something to happen, it is likely it will not turn out that way.

  2. Rory says she has always been a glass half full type of girl when they discovered a frozen pizza in their freezer of which they did not know it’s origin. I would say pizza optimism is a good place to be.

  3. When you look at life on the bright side…being happy regardless of the situation. Always thinking about the good and ignoring the bad and not complaining.

  4. Exactly half of his glass spilled on to his lap as the gorgeous redhead walked by his table. Now if that isn’t a sign, I don’t know what is. Sometimes the universe reaches out and grabs people by the short and curlies.

  5. I’m just a cock-eyed optimist! I use to sing this song for an audition because I could relate to it. I have always been an optimist – knowing that the future hasn’t happened and can be anything. Call me an Annie, call me an Otter (Treasure Tree). Know that I will always look for the good and bright and not be afraid of the future and what wonders it will bring.

  7. is optimism foolish? should we really rely on hope? false hope at that? if we always look on the bright side of life, then do just we ignore the bad things? obviously one shouldn’t always be pessimistic, but is that more realistic than blind optimism?

  9. fuck optimism thats some delusional happy go lucky bullshit. cheery assholes and their holiday fucking non cynicism makes me want to vomit a rainbow of hate. i hope all of these shiney happy people undergo a mass extinction in the next five minutes. dying in a tragic yet hilarious car fire that will hence forth be reffered to as the lolocaust.

  10. i feel optimistic about us. maybe it’s wrong to assume but my heart is so light. it’s time for everything to be right again. it’s time to smile, baby.

  14. For the dreary days you need this optimism get the dismal out the way
    and bring in sunshine from the epochs that make the skyway and we’ll all return there for eternal light year play

  15. Optimism.? I’m not evening going to write about this.
    I dislike this word.

    By Summer URL on 12.20.2010

  16. now that’s something she lacks. she pretends to be so happy, yet all she really talks about is people and how much she hates them all. not how she’s excited or thinks something will turn out well. just negative. that girl is crazy, i don’t wish i were her.

    By mmc on 12.20.2010

  17. There’s a silver lining to every dark cloud. That’s what my mother would say when we were frightened of the creatures in the dark. She couldn’t see them so she didn’t think they existed. Even now as I cower under the covers, a grown woman I find myself whispering those words. Could there really be a sliver lining to the dark shadow looming over my bed?

  18. A gold bracelet wrapped around my wrist. A strand of hair I found while washing one last dish. You told me that you loved me. You told me that you cared. But the hair was a golden tinge. A hair neither of us shares.

  19. optimism sees the good, the glass is half full. I am not an optimist. I see darkness.

  20. I can’t.

  21. always being positive about a situation;
    what i aim to be but fail to achieve.

    there i go again, not being optimistic enough.

  22. I am getting older, but I’m still trying. I am swimming through dark waters, something mysterious, this world after college where I am struggling for money or food or direction in my life. Where will I end up? Who will I be? And the overlying question: Why don’t I already know.

  23. optimism is like a light in a dark cave. you’re feeling around, desperate for a way out and panic starts to set in as you stumble and accumulate one too man bruises. you need a light and there it is, a shining glimmer that, ‘it could be worse’ or that ‘there is always a way out’.

    By Anne URL on 12.20.2010

  24. She’s optimism personified. He’s.. well, not so much. Some say she’s bubble-headed, some say he’s anti-social, but neither of them are like that at all. They make a good team. She brightens him up, and he keeps her grounded.

  25. bright ideas, thinking healthy. Vegetarian! I try to think that way when i can. Sets you in a happy mood.
    Fun. LAUREN is

  26. I am optimistic that I will not swell after my surgery… oh wisdom teeth.
    I love the fact that I have great friends… I have optimism that we will be friends for a long time into the future.
    I have optimism that my friends will laugh at me, but its the best way to recover. :) I am absolutely positive that they are awesome!

  27. Do you have to be so optimistic all the freaking time? Do you have any idea how absolutely obnoxious that is? Thats you, Obtrusively and Obnoxiously Optimistic Oren. I mean, it gets so old. Doesn’t it get old to you? Always looking on the bright side of things, even when death and demise are staring you in the face. Yet, I find thats what made us friends in the first place, even though I don’t want to admit it. You know how to make me laugh… yet I’ve gotten sick of the off-sound of my laughter when I laugh just to make you feel better as well, to return the favor.

  28. I am not an optimist because I believe in evil, true evil, not the villains we read about in comic books. The evil of the real world is when we do nothing, of which I am guilty, and when people work for bad ends simply because they can. To twist power until there’s nothing hopeful about it anymore, eating up the potential, leaving a dead husk behind. But I do believe in things like hope that make optimistic moments worthwhile. Even if it hurts to believe in good, even if the fall is higher for having believed in the best possible outcome, it’s important sometimes to be optimistic. Despite evil. Or perhaps to spite it.

  29. optimism is good! it makes you and others happy. be optimistic. or you will die. YOU WILL DIE IF YOU ARE NOT OPTIMISTIC. i am optimistic. my name is Ruby Twedt. ruby twadt actually. If you ever see me, shun me, and beat me up. Thank you. I feel as if my first paragraph is very optimistic. Yes. Yes.

  30. My happiness is gone, you took it when you left. It’ll never be back. All hope of being optimistic is gone forever.

    By Olivia on 12.20.2010

  31. I’ve never seen a silver lining, the glass is always half empty and the grass is actually greener on the other side. Take today; I dropped £20 somewhere in the white blanket that has covered my town. I wasn’t the lucky sod who found it, was I? No, that guy is probably my counter. Optimistic bastard.

  32. He stands at the top of the world, all creation churning below him, all hell blazed. He knew what potential lay sleeping inside this mess. He smiled and clapped his hands. Let the games begin.

  33. I used to think this was an unreal attitude. that a healthy sense of pessimism was justified. As I age I realize not only is optimism the only real view but in fact necessary for a life of happiness and gratitude. In optimism is the possibility that things will be better the what they are rather then prognosticating things will get worse and that lends itself to a life well lived

  34. That’s what I feel today. I’m at the airport, waiting for my flight and I will soon get to see my family. I’m optimistic about what the Holidays will bring to me. I don’t know, I haven’t been home for a while, it’s gonna be good. I’m sure it will.

  35. is something that many say they have, yet few actually yield its true power. We are all susceptable to optimisms illusions. Strength is a byproduct of optimism.

  36. Yesterday, I was going to send you flowers.
    Instead, I’m going to set my house on fire.

    No wonder
    Buddhist monks
    Feel so
    At ease.

  37. Optimism is an illusion. Your mind creates it when you’re happy. It’s false hope.
    It’s the greatest gift. Hope; happiness.

    By Anna Bell on 12.20.2010

  38. optimism is something everyone strives for. Everyone wants to be the happy person in te middle of the croud, not the sulking monster in the corner. It makes life better they say, when really it just makes your life seem better to others. Optimism is…

    By Caroline on 12.20.2010

  39. The thought that I may have a job waiting for me when I get out of college? I suppose that may be optimism. You know what’s not an optimistic point of view? The opportunities that await an English major.
    I would like to say that I’m going to write the next great American novel. You know, become the next Hemingway. But I won’t. I’ll probably be the next great drunk sitting on the bridge reciting someone else’s poems as if they were my own.

  40. a happy feelling. i want to be optimistitic about life and getting into a good college. optimism is a good feeling to have. you want to be optimistic about many things. being pesimistic is bad. things can not come to you when you are pesimistic,
