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)


The human brain is a product of millions years of evolution and we are hard-wired with instincts that helped our ancestors to survive in small groups.  Our brains often jump to swift conclusions without much thinking, which used to help us to avoid immediate dangers.  
... We still need these dramatics instincts ...  
If we sifted every input and analyzed every decision rationally, a normal life would be impossible.  
... But uncontrolled, our appetite for the dramatic goes too far, prevents us from seeing the world as it is, and leads us terribly astray.
