40 Quotes: Optimistic or Pessimistic? As soon as I make a mistake, a big one, I live with that for two, three, four games… I… recognize my mistake, I do not try and make up any excuses, say no, no, this is not a mistake. I live with it and that’s something I haven’t resolved so far since I made one and I live with it for a few games or for a few minutes during the game.

41 Great Optimistic Quotes “ I’ve had some big wins and some tough losses, but the Czech game, no question, is one of the toughest losses I’ve ever experienced. We were in shock. It was one of the those rare feelings we’ve gotten in our careers where we really didn’t know what hit us.” Wayne Gretzky after losing in the bronze medal game to the Fins in ‘98
