Pragmatism is often an excuse for resignation. So you can say to yourself, “It cannot be done, so there’s no use bothering.”

But there can be no excuse for giving up on life. True pragmatism is accepting things exactly as they are, while asking, “What is possible? And what can I do to make the possible real?”
