  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I often hear people debating about the glass half-full or half-empty, and I wonder whether they would ever notice a full pitcher sitting right next to that half-full or half-empty glass. In real world, Life offers you millions of wonderful opportunities besides what you already have - sometimes even bigger and better than you have ever dreamt before....just like a full pitcher right around the corner. It's savvy, IMHO, to grab the full pitcher that can fill up your glass several times over, instead of worrying about half-full or half-empty glass that you are holding. So be smart, find that full pitcher, seize it as quickly as you can, and then enjoy the party!

  5. Olivier Veran:
