Quote of the Day | 0412

When you hear about something terrible, calm yourself by asking: if there had been a positive improvement, would I have heard about that? Even if there had been hundreds of larger improvements, would I have heard?

This is “factfulness”: understanding as a source of mental peace. Like a healthy diet and regular exercise, it can and should become part of people’s daily lives.

Hans Rosling, ‘Good news at last: the world isn’t as horrific as you think’
