Pessimism

Joke Topics Home






A pessimist is a man who lives with an optimist.--_Francis Wilson_.


How happy are the Pessimists!
A bliss without alloy
Is theirs when they have proved to us
There's no such thing as joy!

--_Harold Susman_.


A pessimist is one who, of two evils, chooses them both.


"I had a mighty queer surprise this morning," remarked a local stock
broker. "I put on my last summer's thin suit on account of this
extraordinary hot weather, and in one of the trousers pockets I found a
big roll of bills which I had entirely forgotten."

"Were any of them receipted?" asked a pessimist.


To tell men that they cannot help themselves is to fling them into
recklessness and despair.--_Fronde_.


With earth's first clay they did the last man knead,
And there of the last harvest sowed the seed:
And the first morning of creation wrote
What the last dawn of reckoning shall read.

Yesterday this day's madness did prepare;
Tomorrow's silence, triumph, or despair.
Drink! For you know not whence you came, nor why;
Drink! For you know not why you go, nor where.

--_Omar Khayyam_
