Positive Attitude

"Without faith we're left with nothing but an overwhelming sense of hopelessness every single day, and it will beat you. I didn't fully see until the cancer, how we fight every day against the creeping negatives of the world, how we struggle daily against the slow lapping of cynicism. Dispiritedness and disappointment, these are the real perils of life, not some sudden illness."
- Lance Armstrong (emphasis mine)

Outstanding, Gabe! Great to have another person posting stuff here! I'm in a life-long fight against cynicism (in myself and in the world around me), and I see it as one of the greatest evils around.
