[a worldview]

Topic: Personal
“To put it simply, I feel that the universe is full of glorious energy, that the energy tends to take pattern and shape, and that the ultimate character of things is comely and good. I am perfectly aware that I say this in the teeth of all sorts of contrary evidence, and that I must be basing it partly on temperament and partly on faith, but that is my attitude.”

That quote, which closely matches my own attitude, is from the poet Richard Wilbur, recorded in another New Yorker article.
