I thought of this post from 2013, which has not been seen by many of you. It is one of my favourite quotes of modern times.
I was watching a documentary film this morning. The person who was the subject of the documentary was being remembered by friends. One recalled that she had once met Gil Scott-Heron, the late musician. She asked him what his definition of a pessimist was. His reply has to be one of my favourite quotes, ever.
“A pessimist is a person who is in possession of all the facts.”
