You may have heard the story of the twins, Harry and Larry. Harry is a pessimist and Larry is an optimist.

Dad bought Harry a bike, basketball, rifle, everything to make him happy.
He bought a pile of manure for Larry.

Harry said, "If I ride this bike, I might get hit by a car. If I take my basketball outside, someone might steal it. This rifle is dangerous. I will probably shoot someone's window out."

He got worse from there and turned his birthday to gloom and doom.

When Larry saw the pile of manure, he began to look through all of the rooms in the house. His dad caught him by the arm and said, "Son, what are you looking for?"

Larry replied, "Dad, with all the horse manure you gave me, there's got to be a pony around here some place!"

Point: "A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty." - Sir Winston Churchill
