"The optimist realizes that when everyone seems to doubt you, it's really just everyone you've met so far."
"It's still possible to be a cockeyed optimist these days -- you just have to be a little more cockeyed."
"No one was ever called an impractical dreamer without a strong measure of envy."
"Happiness is life served up with a scoop of acceptance, a topping of tolerance and sprinkles of hope, although chocolate sprinkles also work."
"It is possible at any age to discover a lifelong desire you never knew you had."
-- Robert Brault
