To find a solution to a problem means that you are the type of person who
sees possibilities and not the type of person who only thinks about the
problem as if it is the end with nothing to be done except accept the

and the problem now owns you. On the other hand, if you take that problem
and say to yourself that there is a solution then you already have taken
the first step to finding a solution.
Catherine Pulsifer, How Long Does A Storm Last

see that there is an opportunity right before your eyes.
Byron Pulsifer, Stop Worrying
The only difference between a problem and a solution is that people
understand the solution.
