Extremely idealistic and incredibly optimistic

I’m reading this book right now that M recommended, of which I am sure you have heard about, be it the actual novel or the movie, called Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.  It’s intelligently written, in the sense that there are many intelligently written and pondered about moments throughout the book.

One of my favorites is a remark that an adult remarks to the boy “… I used to be idealistic” to which the boy inquires what “idealistic” meant to which the woman responds “It means you live by what you think is right.”

Are you idealistic?  Have you given that up … yet?
