AN ESSAY IN ATTITUDES
Optimism is for cowards, pessimism is for Christians; reality is for pagans.
Fantastic site you have here, excellent content (I was born in 92, so I cannot fully relate, but nevertheless I've been looking at your old posts for the past two days).You should be writing for someone.This site is a work of art, well appreciated by me. Keep it up.

Accepting one's time and conditions is much needed. We cannot wish to change when or where we were born. But I do hold out some hope for the future.Mine is a most peaceable disposition. My wishes are: a humble cottage with a thatched roof, but a good bed, good food, the freshest milk and butter, flowers before my window and a few fine trees before my door. And if God wants to make my happiness complete, he will grant me the joy of seeing some six or seven of my enemies hanging from those trees.- Heine
Gandalf has clearly boned up on his Seneca. I've always thought the stoics were a great comfort in times of hardship.
