A perfect quote

beetleypete

I was watching a documentary film this morning. The person who was the subject of the documentary was being remembered by friends. One recalled that she had once met Gil Scott-Heron, the late musician. She asked him what his definition of a pessimist was. His reply has to be one of my favourite quotes, ever.

“A pessimist is a person who is in possession of all the facts.”

Priceless.
