Can You See It?

Quotes and Notes #154, April 7

“There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”—Henri Matisse–

With this one I can only tell my mother’s story about the two children—one an optimist, the other a pessimist. Researchers put the little pessimist boy in a room with every childhood delight imaginable. When he sat sadly in the corner, he was asked why. “Well,” he said, “If I play with the toys I’ll break them and if I eat all the cake and ice cream I’ll get sick.”

The little optimist boy was shown into a room that contained nothing but a pile of horse manure. The boy said, “oboy, oboy” and started grinning and digging furiously in the manure. When asked what he was doing, he replied, “There’s a pony here somewhere.”

Draw your own conclusions.

Share a smile

Everything is going to be all right.

“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

I wanted to look at the view but the flowers got in my way
