“Optimism, unaccompanied by personal effort, is merely a state of mind, and not fruitful.” 

~E Curtis

I admire people who remain positive in the face of adversity, who always see the cup as half-full.  But if they stop there and put no action behind their positivity, my admiration stops as well.  Only those who combine their optimism with action deserve admiration for they can change the world.
