My dear,

The stock markets are crashing, the glaciers are melting, the animals are dying, the politicians are spineless, the businessmen are heartless, the people are homeless, the workers are jobless, and the children are barely getting a proper education.

The pessimist is the man who believes things couldn’t possibly be worse, to which the optimist replies, “Oh yes they could!”

…The opportunist is the one who knows that the optimist is right, unless they do something about it.

Falsely yours,
Vladimir Konstantinovich Bukovsky
