L'optimisme, ce n'est pas le refus de voir ce qui ne va pas, c'est le désir de ne pas s'y attarder. // Donne moi le courage de changer les choses que je peux changer, la sérénité d'accepter celles que je ne peux pas changer, et la sagesse de distinguer entre les deux. (Marc Aurèle) // Don't raise your voice; improve your argument. (Desmond Tutu) // Be the change you want to see in the world. (Gandhi)

Life is too short to spend your precious time trying to convince a person who wants to live in gloom and doom otherwise.
Give lifting that person your best shot, but don't hang around long enough for his or her bad attitude to pull you down.
Instead, surround yourself with optimistic people.
(Zig Ziglar) #quote

It's a basic truth of the human condition that everybody lies.
The only variable is about what.
The weird (great): thing about telling someone they're dying is it tends to focus their priorities.
You find out what matters to them.
What they're willing to die for. What they're willing to lie for.
(Dr House) #quote


On n'exécute pas tout ce qui se propose,
