'Optimists and pessimists die the same way. They just live differently. I prefer to live as an optimist.' That was the byword, the life choice, of Shimon Peres, Zichrono Livracha, who died at 93 just a few weeks ago. His lifelong work is summarised by something else that he said:

Find a cause that's larger than yourself and then give your life to it.

He certainly did that. He gave his life to the growth, security and prosperity of the Jewish State. Peres’ political career saw him hold all major offices of state and rebound from remarkable defeats. He was a protégé, as was just said, of Israel's founding father, David Ben-Gurion, and was first elected to the Knesset (Israeli parliament) in 1949.
