I’m a pessimist because of intelligence, but an optimist because of will.
— Romain Rolland

The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
Winston Churchill optimist quote

The pessimist complains about the wind;The optimist expects it to change;And the realist adjusts the sails.
— William Arthur Ward

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
— Winston Churchill

For myself I am an optimist - it does not seem to be much use to be anything else.
— Winston Churchill
