Words of optimism

Here's an excerpt from a poem on Optimism:

Fate used me meanly; but I looked at her and laughed,
That none might know how bitter was the cup I quaffed.
Along came Joy, and paused beside me where I sat,
Saying, ‘I came to see what you were laughing at.’

Don't sulk in your fate. Rather, smile on your miseries. Make a joke of your troubles. And laugh aloud my friend, laugh aloud so hard that happiness wonders why the hell did it leave you in the first place!
