Optimist: someone who figures that taking a step backward after taking a step forward is not a disaster; it’s more like a cha-cha. ~ Robert Brault
Some would say taking a step forward puts you in danger.
Some would say taking a step back shows cowardice.
But as this quote says, if you go forward then back and then forward again, it could well look like you’re dancing, even if that’s not what you intended.
