Fountains Quotes

I hope you find great value in these Quotes about Fountains 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.

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.
- Helen Keller
