A pessimist who is driven by hope. A paradoxical balance between being a skeptic and a utopian idealist. Wishfully wary. A guarded viewpoint with no tangible protection. Reckless yet cautious or reckless prudence. Circumspect with abandon.
He does not believe in God, but he hopes there is one, making him a cynoptimist about faith in a higher power.
