stated that an optimist is one who, while feeling
that the world is going to the dogs, starts another
dog food factory. This illustrates the saying that
while a pessimist sees a difficulty in every op
portunity, an optimist sees an opportunity in

fully, remembering that all bright pictures have
had dark backgrounds. The pessimist says, "If I
don’t try, I can’t fail.” The optimist says, "If I
don’t try, I can’t win.”
