But reasonable or not, the attitude exists, and in its mere existence refutes its critics. Decry the optimist as you will, you can not absolutely deny him. Happiness may be nonexistent; but it is n Books, Biography & Autobiography~~General, William-de-Morgan~~Flora-Warren-Seymour, 999999999, William De Morgan, Flora Warren Seymour, 1145997643, Nabu Press, , , , , Nabu Press
