Anger is a negative emotion with a positive side. It makes you vulnerable, but it reveals passion. It can result from a deep sense of justice and honesty. The best way to reduce anger is to become pragmatic and practical. But pragmatism kills passion. I wonder where we’d be today if Churchill had been a pragmatist instead of a stubborn visionary.
I’ve never had a lot of time for pragmatism.
To me, Pragmatism means – doing what works instead of doing the right thing. The problem with a pragmatic approach to life… is…
YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT WILL WORK AND WHAT WON’T, UNTIL YOU TRY!
If you fail, so what? Get up, modify your plan, and try again.
In general, the only reason something is impossible is because someone has decided it is impossible.
Pragmatism is a common tactic to dismiss dreams, to stifle innovation, and to crush creativity.
“But we can’t do that! It isn’t practical!”
