A Cock-Eyed Optimist?

“It is far easier, it seems to me, to become a cynic than it is to work beyond disappointments and rise above wounds.  We must be willing to trust again and expect better than we’ve received.  True cynics who believe they have become experts at seeing through people have actually succumbed to a different kind of blindness.  If we want love, it is better to look for the good in people, even if it means being somewhat of a cock-eyed optimist.”

— Leo Buscaglia, Born for Love, p. 81
