    Thought for the day

    Pessimist - The glass is half empty
    Optimist - The glass is half full

    An optimist laughs to forget, a pessimist forgets to laugh

    The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.

    Women always worry about the things that men forget; men always worry about the things women remember!

    Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.

    The politician will say that the glass would be more empty if the opposition were in charge.
    The project manager will say that the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
    The fanatic will say that the glass is full, even though it isn't.
    The IT support person will say that you should try emptying the glass and then refilling it.

    Re the Optimist and Pessimist - I always argue that its the other way - if its half empty, I assume I'm the one that did that and I'm going to finish the other half. If its half full then the bartender has just ripped me off

    There's at least two pages of this somewhere. At work did a send-all email complaining about the dishwasher being turned on when it was half full. A find and replace 'glass' with 'dishwasher' worked quite well for someone easily amused.
