Dries Quotes

I hope you find great value in these Quotes about Dries from my large collection of inspirational quotes and motivational sayings.

Every optimist moves along with progress and hastens it,
while every pessimist would keep the worlds at a standstill.
The consequence of pessimism in the life of a nation
is the same as in the life of the individual.
Pessimism kills the instinct that
urges men to struggle against poverty,
ignorance and crime, and dries up
all the fountains of joy in the world.

The River surges. The River quiets.
The River overflows its banks. The River dries to a trickle.

or what harm is caused by its water.
The River is the River, and that is all there is to it.
