71 Optimistic Quotes

Be inspired by these optimistic quotes. Optimism defined by Webster's dictionary - the inclination to take a hopeful view. We all have a choice every day - we can be full of optimism and look forward to the day or we can be full of pessimism and frown before the day even begins.

We can look forward with hope and faith that no matter what is going on that it will work out. If you believe that your future is promising it usually will be. But if you are full of doom and gloom chances are that is what you will continue to have.

A sunny disposition is always better. People like to be around optimistic people, people who give them hope and see things in a positive light. People who are cheerful and look for the good, they are not defeated at the first issue that arises. By choosing optimism you will find life is easier and solutions will present themselves because you are focusing on the solution rather than the issue!
