Mayor William S. Jordan, at a Democratic banquet in Jacksonville, said of optimism:
"Let us cultivate optimism and hopefulness. There is nothing like it.
The optimistic man can see a bright side to everything - everything.
"A missionary in a slum once laid his hand on a man's shoulder and said:
"'Friend, do you hear the solemn ticking of that clock? Tick-tack; tick-tack. And oh, friend, do you know what day it inexorably and relentlessly brings nearer?"
"'Yes-pay day,' the other, an honest, optimistic workingman, replied."
