The Principle of Optimism states that All evils are caused by insufficient knowledge.
Optimism is a way of explaining failure, not prophesying success. When we try to improve and fail, it is always because we did not know enough, in time.
It is also a stance towards the future, because nearly all failures, and nearly all successes, are yet to come.
