Optimists vs Pessimists

Hope is an embrace of the unknown and the unknowable, an alternative to the certainty of both optimists and pessimists.

It’s the belief that what we do matters even though how and when it may matter, who and what it may impact, are not things you can know beforehand.

You may not, in fact, know them afterward either, but they matter all the same, and history is full of people whose influence was most powerful after they were gone”.
