  1. It kind of removes the optimism from one’s responsibility, doesn’t it?

  2. A bit, yes. I was watching The Hour last night (for the first time in forever) and the author who was the guest was promoting his book, The Optimist, and had interviewed Desmond Tutu, who gave the quote in my heading. It was a really interesting interview, I’ll relink it when its posted.

  3. Kathryn Schreiber

    HI folks, this statement, I think, orignated with Dr. Cornell West — he does a good job of unpacking why he’s not an optimist… see http://archerpelican.typepad.com/tap/2004/05/cornel_west_on_.html
