  • My father used to tell me, “If a friend attempts to borrow money from you, double it and give to him for free.” I told him that was weird advice coming from him because he was always so tight with money. He said, “Friendships are often broken because of one person owing money to the other. Better to give him double and say, ‘there, I hope whatever hole you’ve dug yourself in you can dig yourself out of using that money, because I won’t be giving you any more.'”

    Maybe some of the people who you think are pessimists are the ones who really care, you never know.
