Water In The Glass

"A well-known proverb states that an optimistic would say a glass is half full, while a pessimist would say it is half empty.  What would people of different professions and walks of life say?

The BANKER would say that the glass has just under 50% of its net worth in liquid assets.
The GOVERNMENT would say that the glass is fuller than if the opposition party were in power.
The OPPOSITION would say that it is irrelevant because the present administration has changed the way such volume statistics are collected.
The PHILOSOPHER would say that, if the glass was in the forest and no one was there to see it, would it be half anything? 
The PSYCHIATRIST would ask, "What did your mother say about the glass?"
The PHYSICIST would say that the volume of this cylinder is divided into two equal parts; one a colorless, odorless liquid, the other a colorless, odorless gas. Thus the cylinder is neither full nor empty.  Rather, each half of the cylinder is full, one with a gas, one with a liquid.
A SEASONED DRINKER would say that the glass doesn't have enough ice in it." 

Taken from a church bulletin.  

Each of us have to decide what the water in the glass means to us. Do our daily thoughts and actions reflect a positive view of life or do we choose to see the negative aspects of being a human being?  It is truly up to us to send out ripples of love or ripples of discontent or anger. Love can be very contagious as we see rainbows after the rain or smiles through the tears.

Become the light for someone or others!
