To the dull mind all nature is leaden. To the illumined mind the whole world burns and sparkles with light.

  1. Wow! This quote makes a clear distinction between the eternal optimist and the pessimist, the realist, the idealist, and the opportunist! We all get to be one and or the other as the situation in our lives and moods dicatate! Such an eye-opener!

    I came across a funny letter recently while scouring the net and it went a lil something like this…

    Dear Realist and Idealist,

    While you argued and bickered ’bout the glass of milk…..I drank it!

    Yours truly,

    Opportunist.

    Of course, I just couldn’t stop laughing! That REALLY smarts! LOL

  2. I love the quote, as one first said the switch boss, the switch, where’s is the switch. Or I can’t see , I can’t see , why cause my hands are covering my eyes. Great one Don
