Pollyanna, the heroine of a novel of the same name, was an irrepressible optimist—so much so that the term Pollyannaism has become synonymous with extreme, even foolish, optimism. Without differentiation she saw good in everything, and for this reason her outlook is sometimes mistakenly bracketed with the teachings of Christian Science. But there is a vast difference.
Optimism is valuable so far as it goes. It is much better than mental gloom. But it is very far from the genuine expectancy of good that is based on changeless spiritual Truth—on the all-important fact that all real goodness has its source in God, infinite Spirit. Actually, nothing unspiritual or separate from God is genuinely good or can be called good.
