Buddhism Day by Day: Somehow or Other Things Will Work Out

“Buddhist optimism is not the escapist optimism of those who throw up their hands and say ‘Somehow or other things will work out.’ Rather it means clearly recognizing evil as evil and suffering as suffering and resolutely fighting to overcome it. It means believing in one’s ability and strength against evil or any obstacle. It is to possess a fighting optimism.”
