Cynicism is good for you

Every cynic is also an optimist, or else has the seeds of optimism planted somewhere within him. You can’t be mad about what is unless you know what could be.

Why do we like guys like H.L. Mencken and Bill Hicks? Because they imply we have the potential to be something better when they point out how flawed we are now.

And because they’re damn funny.
