Albert Schweitzer Quote
“An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while a pessimist sees only the red stoplight... the truly wise person is colorblind.”
As quoted in: Think, Volume 24 (1956), p. 15. Also in: Kulturpolitische Korrespondenz, Issues 257-272 (Ostdeutscher Kulturrat, 1976), p. 18
“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”
