“I prefer credulity to cynicism... for there is more promise in almost anything than in nothing at all.”

-Ralph B. Perry

Quite true, but it depends upon the thing. Ralph Perry may speak till he farts his last anal breath, but when he invests his energy, or perhaps something more precious, into an area where he really was not originally in a position where he had nothing to lose... THEN I'd accept his claim. Till then, what he really means is...

"I prefer credulity over cynicism as far as my life is concerned over this area/venture which I care a lot about and am presently in a position where I have relatively little to lose. There is some promise I'd get what I want out of it, and hence I don't mind trying since the reward is worth it... and it benefits ME! It's better than nothing at all."

if you happen to be a billionaire...
