  2. The realist is someone who usually misses the kaleidoscope of their surroundings.

  3. The natural world defiantly is beautiful, but I am not so much the grey concrete.

  12. It is! In the eyes of the optimist beholder, who accepts that this world is not perfect, it's natural beauty supersedes all its imperfections.

  13. Only optimism can do this, as it reaches parts other ethical systems fail to reach....usually because they're too pragmatic.

    That is a very good attitude in life and that is what God wants us to do.John 10:10 says A thief comes only to rob, kill and destroy. I came so that everyone would have joy, and have it to the fullest, until it overflows.
    Always see the beauty in everything, and enjoy life.

  22. You'd be surprised, poets like Yeats and Wilfred Owen, about whom I've written, tend to disagree.

  23. Interestingly, I read an article about this very topic recently, which suggested humans tend to skew somewhat more negative than reality in their thinking, so aligning your view in a slightly more positive vein actually means it's more realistic. I thought it was a nice way of thinking of it.

  25. The world is beautiful sounds like words from an idealist. But maybe we need to define world.
