For quite some time, I’ve been amused by various sayings about the difference between optimism and pessimism (or realism depending on what you call it). Today I was thinking about them and one of the seemed so particularly appropriate for Jordan that I thought I’d post it. In fact, I’ll post a few.
The difference ‘twixt an optimist and pessimist is droll, the optimist sees the doughnut… the pessimist the whole.
I love this one. After all, who wouldn’t love combining age old life-lessons and yummy pastries? I worked in a bakery for a summer and I assure you, there is not much that is glamorous about either doughnuts or their holes ;).
The glass isn’t half empty or half full… it’s just halfway to another beer.
I call this one on the side of optimism myself. I mean, after all, you assume there will be another beer coming (which is good if you drink beer).
And the one that came to mind this morning is this…
The difference between the optimist and realist is that upon coming to a one way street, the optimist looks one way, the realist… BOTH!
You can’t tell me the last one isn’t 100% Jordan… Lovin’ it.
