"It's easy enough to be pleasant,
When life flows by like a song;
But the man worth while is the maa
with a smile
When everything goes dead wrong."
Optimism Is the habit of looking on
the bright side.
i Pessimism is the habit of looking
on the dark side.
The pessimist sees only the cloud.
The optimist pees the silvr-r lining.
He knows the cloud is there all right'
but he looks at it from the proper
angle and with a smiling face and he
catches the reflection of his own smile.
In a previous article I commented
upon various kinds of contagion, in
cluding laughter, bravery, fear and
anger, all of which are contagious by
the force of EXAMPLE.
Reflection along this line reveals an
overwhelming responsibility upon each
of us towards our fellow humans.

sour without knowing why.
Example therefore must be remem
