Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

Helen Keller

OPTIMISM, n. The doctrine, or belief, that everything is beautiful, including what is ugly, everything good, especially the bad, and everything right that is wrong. It is held with greatest tenacity by those most accustomed to the mischance of falling into adversity, and is most acceptably expounded with the grin that apes a smile. Being a blind faith, it is inaccessible to the light of disproof --an intellectual disorder, yielding to no treatment but death. It is hereditary, but fortunately not contagious.

Ambrose Bierce

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope or confidence.

Helen Keller
