Optimism is for the weak. Only those who cannot stand the world as it is, who cannot tolerate its divergence from sickly ideals, resort to such postering. The optimist is in most cases a fraud, a man who is afraid to see and so prefers to pretend. In a few cases it is a genuine sickness, unconsciously driven by an overly contented mind.

One must see what is and accept it, that he might change it for the better or leave it for the worse. To assume things will get better tomorrow is to ignore what should be done today to make it so.

Of course, all of this can also be said of pessimism.
