The joys of pessimism

Few who are not pessimists can imagine the cosy feeling of completeness that there is in pessimism, for it has many joys of its own unknown and undreamt of by the busy optimist world.
Ford Madox Ford - The Shifting of the Fire

Demetrius - I'd reply but it won't do any good.

Woodsy - so do I. Moaning is enjoyable - it clears the air.

Sackers - I wish I could do cartoons.
