XV. Optimism

~ The Laughing Cavalier by Frans Hals

~

One cloud is enough to eclipse all the sun.[1]

When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.[2]

There is not enough darkness in all the world,

To put out the light of even a small candle.[3]

 ~

He that falls today may rise tomorrow.

The darkest hour is that before the dawn.

Every cloud has its silver lining.

The longest night will have an end.

 ~

When the sun sets,

The moon rises,

When the moon sets,

The sun rises.[4]

 ~

Look on the bright side.

When one door shuts, another opens.
