I always want to ask these panglosses--Is it okay if I assume the unknown, prepare, for a limited amount of time, for the worst--with the proviso that it probably won't happen-- and spend my energy remembering that the best, or at least the good, is also within reach-?

its important not to foreclose the best, or the good-- but assuming it? that seems to raise the issue of the worst, really-- a reasonable belief, not a panglossian belief gives me the most strength.

We should all carry around a copies of Voltaire to distribute to these starry-eyed well wishers. I wonder if they are so staunch believers in the best when they're under some difficulty?
