Optimism Quotes

This page is a collection of Optimism Quotes.

"Circumstances don't matter, only state of being matters- what state of being are you choosing?" This is a statement by Bashar which points out the power we have in how we experience life.

This life is yours and it emanates from within. You choose your perspective which creates your perception. In other words how we look at something creates what we see. Choose to be optimistic, and you will see your life transform in front of your eyes.

Choose to see the glass not as half empty or half full, but completely full, because it is- half with water and half with air.
