Optimism quotes tend to focus on the positive. When you consider we all create our lives with our thoughts, why would anyone want to be a pessimist? It makes no sense. Negative thoughts attract negative effects. Positive thoughts generate positive results.

Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A word of optimism and hope. A you can do it when things are tough.
Richard M. DeVos
There are some days I practice positive thinking, and other days I'm not positive I am thinking.

Pessimism never won any battle.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Use the word perhaps to change your negative beliefs to possibilities that invite action and, ultimately, to positive beliefs and probabilities.
I have a history of making decisions very quickly about men. I have always fallen in love fast and without measuring risks. I have a tendency not only to see the best in everyone, but to assume that everyone is emotionally capable of reaching his highest potential. I have fallen in love more times than I care to count with the highest potential of a man, rather than with the man himself, and I have hung on to the relationship for a long time (sometimes far too long) waiting for the man to ascend to his own greatness. Many times in romance I have been a victim of my own optimism.
People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong…Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?
Thich Nhat Hanh
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
I promise myself…to be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind; to talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet; to make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them; to look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true; to think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best; to be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own; to forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future; to wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet; to give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others; to be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble; to think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds; to live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.
Christian D. Larson

Marta Davidovich Ockuly
The optimist thinks this is the best of all possible worlds. The pessimist fears it is true.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
There is a basic law that like attracts like. Negative thinking definitely attracts negative results. Conversely, if a person habitually thinks optimistically and hopefully, his positive thinking sets in motion creative forces – and success, instead of eluding him, flows toward him.

I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can’t make it through one door, I’ll go through another door – or I’ll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.
