– Logan Pearsall SmithRate it:
Solvent dans la vie, vous avez à travailler sur les deux fronts, traiter objectivement des locaux diamétralement opposés, puis arriver à la meilleure solution. l'ouverture d'esprit vous permet d'être un réaliste qui est également optimiste à cœur. Aussi étrange que cela puisse paraître, vous espérez pour le mieux, et attendent aussi le pire dans le même temps. Vous opérez dans le monde réel avec la meilleure attitude positive, tout en comprenant parfaitement bien ce qui est pratiquement possible dans une situation donnée. Cette combinaison synergique d'optimisme réaliste (ou réalisme optimiste) peut vous aider à faire face à des problèmes d'une manière efficace et positive, à mon avis, surtout pendant les phases difficiles dans la vie.

Their pathetic fate is an impressive lack of authenticity, spontaneity, candidness, which is a unique key to an open-minded existence. ("Like a frozen image")

– Alan BeckwithRate it:
Some day we feel the overall picture has slipped away. Only the details of life may help to find the whole ensemble. Our worldview does not comprehend the daily events anymore. Our conception of life is no longer a key for understanding, but is, on the contrary, blocking off our insight. We can, however, create space and time for an uplifting reflection and acquire an "Identity". ("Man without Qualities" )
