A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes;
a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs;
an optimist doesn't see the clouds at all - he's walking on them.

"Awesome watching Chilean miners rescued and reunited with family, after months trapped 700m underground, on my birthday! What a gift." via
erhem! Maybe the world wide rejoicing at this incredible rescue where a nation has illuminated the importance of 1 human life…. may help others to come to a similar comprehension……
“So go about life condemning none, but looking kindly and with love upon all; hold no harsh thought even about a so-called enemy.
In truth, no man can really be your enemy, all are your teachers; and when you are tempted to feel injured or resentful because of some apparent injustice, look first within yourself and ask, "What has this to show me, what have I to learn from this?" In time truth will reveal itself, so that instead of thinking antagonistically you will be able to say, "Thank you, brother, for you have taught me much, and helped me".
The other person's motive is not your business”
