The very best thing you can do for the whole world is to make the most of yourself.
Optimism is the expectation that things — the weather, human relationships, the economy, the political situation, and so on — will get better.
Hope is the trust that God will fulfill God’s promises to us in a way that leads us to true freedom.
The optimist speaks about concrete changes in the future.
The person of hope lives in the moment with the knowledge and trust that all of life is in good hands…..Let’s live with hope.
(Fr. Henri Nouwen)
Make it a practice to judge persons and things in the most favorable light at all times and under all circumstances.
