Optimism

Optimism Pessimism quote by william
Quote: The optimist lives on the peninsula of infinite possibilities; the pessimist is stranded on the island of perpetual indecision.

Looking at this island, I am tempted to remain as a pessimist ;-)

You arent the only one.

Smyta,
To you, shyam and the adopted kids I would have gifted an island - if only I had some money (ok ok it is "enough money") with me. You two touched me.....

Enchant,
Its ok to be cautious but not pessimistic. After all life should be cheerful - there might be setbacks but we need to carry on with a smile and laugh our worries away.

Oh no, deepak, i wud rather be an optimist and explore the world around this tiny island,cause to see To see a world in a grain of sand
And heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.
---william blake

Sonson,
No I just meant that if the pessimism comes as part of package with the island, I will still go for it.

Akruti,
Trust me. Its nice to goto such places for vacation. But staying there for 365 days is not nice - I have been in that situation before. So you can take my word that Hyd is better than that.

Reva,
I just tried to connect the quote and the pict literally. And my line was more of a joke. But its nice to see you come up with those lines. I like Blake - who can forget the "burning bright"
