One of the greatest gifts is to be your own boss.

Maybe you're not quite the pessimist that you imagine. Maybe you simply recognise that optimism is possible but not always easy?
Spoken as a true optimist. :grin:

But I think these things are something we are born with, and which we don't lose or change.

Or have no boss at all. :)

As a born optimist I have no choice but to propose that we can always change... :lol:

Nice one.

In other words if you are an optimist, then you are also a pessimist and vice versa.

To lose is to find and to find is to lose.

The perpetual gap between the map and the territory, the desire and its satisfaction, the symbol and its meaning, the Turing Test and the Chinese Room.

I agree with you Rectified (grumpy old lads that we are).

I think we are in danger of losing our grasp on Reality. Virtual Reality is replacing it and we are living in an unsustainable Dream Time

I miss the days of a simple crooner singing his song and not having a presidential script writer to embellish her thank you.
