It was John Quinton who observed that politicians do
that. Maybe you’ve caught yourself doing it, too.

when things look like they’re getting better, you start
seeing more things that “aren’t right,”
or “could go wrong.”
The Universe is essentially a friendly place.
So friendly, in fact, that it will give you
exactly what you expect it to.
Isn’t that wonderful? Of course,
it depends on what you expect…

Neale Donald Walsch
