    -- Dietrich Bonhoeffer
  11. "I am glad I am an optimist. The pessimist is half-licked before he starts. "

    -- James Branch Caball
  14. "If there is a more optimistic holiday than July Fourth, I don't know what it is: the food, the spectacle, the picnics, the reminder that there are still a delicious nine weeks left until the end of the summer. "
