Quote of the day: Optimists vs. pessimists

Quote of the day: Optimists vs. pessimists

 

A friend passed along this aphorism, which was new to me: “In the 30s, the pessimists went to New York and the optimists went to Auschwitz.”

That resonates with me particularly because recently, in a pessimistic mood, I wondered if the situation nowadays resembles the 1850s domestically but the 1930s internationally.
