Quotable Quotes: Optimists and Pessimists

As investors wrestle with the consequences of the Fed’s decision, only time will tell who will be proven right.

“An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while a pessimist sees only the red stoplight. . . The truly wise person is colorblind.”
Albert Schweitzer

“An optimist may see a light where there is none, but why must the pessimist always run to blow it out?”
Rene Descartes

“The optimist thinks this is the best of all possible worlds. The pessimist fears it is true.”
J. Robert Oppenheimer

“A pessimist is one who feels bad when he feels good for fear he'll feel worse when he feels better.”

Have a good weekend.
