We try to stress in all of our books hope and idealism, and yet we have never published a book that directly asserts the value of positive thinking. In 1912 Christian Larson wrote a creed for the organization known as The Optimists. They have kindly allowed us to use this articulate statement as the text for our publication Optimism. It urges the reader to project happiness and prosperity. It encourages us to make all of our friends feel valued, and to treasure others? triumphs as we do our own. We are to forget the mistakes of the past and start life anew with a sunny spirit. It advises us to greet everyone with a smile.

WELLERAN POLTARNEES has a lifelong love of gardens. His first memory is falling out of his baby carriage and landing on a bed of odorous white flowers which not only kept him from injury, but made the experience a sensual delight. He collects books about, and pictures of, gardens -- but there are few timeless things that he does not so honor. He uses a book called Great Gardens of the World as a guide whenever he travels, and, with the exception of the Boboli Gardens in Florence, which came highly recommended and which he found monotonous -- the gardens have always refreshed him. His favorite time for gardens is night. His favorite garden music is Manuel De Falla's "Nights in the Gardens of Spain", and his favorite garden poem is "The Garden" by Andrew Marvell.
