Tag: Realism

So I’m probably going to start running a “Quote of the Day” segment whenever I feel compelled (Weekly perhaps?  By the way – would that mean I should call it Quote of the Week?  This whole blogging thing is stressful; so many decisions…).  Might be something more suited for Twitter or another social outpost, but I’m paying the bills around here and I felt like it was fair to include 🙂

This one is on a colleague’s signature and I really like it.  I think of myself as a realist (i.e. the person that the optimist calls a pessimist and the person a pessimist wants to punch) so maybe that’s why it resonates with me.

“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.”  –William Arthur Ward
