I will speak ill of no man. . . and speak all the good I know of everybody.
– Benjamin Franklin
Life is too short to spend your precious time trying to convince a person who wants to live in gloom and doom otherwise. Give lifting that person your best shot, but don’t hang around long enough for their bad attitude to pull you down. Instead, surround yourself with optimistic people.
– Zig Ziglar
I may disagree with what you have to say, but I shall defend, to the death, your right to say it.
