Pessimist’s Umbrella

$59.95

An umbrella for those who know that expecting the worst need not be cause for despair.

The umbrella has a rainfall print on the inside, along with Seneca’s pessimistic aphorism: ‘What need is there to weep over parts of life? The whole of it calls for tears.’

’Pessimism is not about despair; it’s a wise attitude that knows that expecting the worst is the best way to stave off surprise and bitterness. This umbrella sagely invites us to step out into the world certain of the inevitability of suffering, loss, anxiety and – eventually – catastrophe.’ The School of Life
