"Dick-idioms" are little philosophical gems I have penned over the years. The numbering sequence has no relationship to their importance, or pecking order; it's just my way to identify them.

 DICK-IDIOM #43

PHILOSOPHY

 
To an optimist,
“Today is
yesterday’s bridge to tomorrow.”
 
 
 
 
To a pessimist,
“Tomorrow is
today’s escape from yesterday”
 
 
To a realist,
“Today is
simply tomorrow’s yesterday.”
 
 
But to an opportunist,
If it didn’t sell yesterday,
 jack up the price today,
put it on sale tomorrow.”
