Voltaire was a versatile writer, producing works in almost every literary form, including plays, poems, novels, essays, and historical and scientific works. He wrote more than 20,000 letters and more than 2,000 books and pamphlets. He was an outspoken advocate of several liberties, despite the risk this placed him in under the strict censorship laws of the time.

As a satirical polemicist, he frequently made use of his works to criticize intolerance, religious dogma, and the French institutions of his day.


He was quoted as expressing, “Optimism is the madness of insisting that all is well when we are miserable.

Hmm. Would you say that he saw the glass as half empty or half full?


The DWW Princess Lisa expressed that one of her combat strengths was optimism. Somehow I think she was looking at the glass as half full.

Fortunately, even as a beautiful new girl next door type wrestler, Lisa’s wrestling was full throttle. Her reviews are filled with praise and packaged in admiration.

(Lisa – right )

Let’s peek in on her match with Rene.

“This is a fantastic fight between two real rivals. Lisa won their first wrestling match some months ago but Rene trained very hard to have a chance in their rematch. Once Lisa realizes that Rene is not as easy to handle as she did remember and had thought to, she starts to pull Rene’s hair. However, Rene does not protest but pulls back.

Lisa is outraged.

She loses her temper during this match quite often not wanting to accept to lose against a smaller and younger girl at all. The longer this catfight goes the more intense it becomes and the more visible their real grudge becomes. These two are no friends – not at all!

They’re female rivals and not willing to tell the other one that she’s got to be the weaker women deliberately. This is a very emotional fight.”

Well, it seems Lisa’s view is that if you’re going to participate in submission wrestle, be optimistic and do it with passion.

(Lisa vs Jenny )

In her combat era, she wrestled against Rene, Andy, Marketa, Leslie, Kendra, Eva N, and Jenny among others.

Optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation of courage and true progress….……….Nicholas M. Butler

Let’s view a few of her victories or what we might describe as signature wins.

Against Andy it was expressed by a sponsor, “This is a submissions only match between two young ladies who are not as skilled and strong as our better wrestlers are, but they’re both ambitious and certainly worth to watch at.

They are equally matched in weight and experience and there is an interesting interview before the match giving you some insight of what the two women do think of themselves and their opponents. If you like two smaller woman wrestling intensely for submissions only then this is definitely a match you’ll have to watch.”

Lisa went on to completely dominate Andy.

The other important match was when Lisa went up against Leslie who I felt was far more experienced. In reality, at this point of their careers, Lisa was the more experienced one but Leslie was an established street fighter.

Another reviewer smiles, “If you like to watch a real, honestly done submission wrestling match between two real women who utterly enjoy wrestling each other, then don’t miss it. Interviews make this match even livelier. For some of you this match might even become a masterpiece of natural female submission wrestling.”

The more I see Lisa, the more I like her.

Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier.…….Colin Powell

A young gorgeous European girl, Lisa enjoys many things as well.

On her bio our cuties shares that she likes wrestling girls her size. Good idea. She also loves her horse, rock music, skiing, horseback riding, cycling and dining at restaurants that serve good chicken dishes.

Submission female wrestlers ted to be very healthy. Lisa also enjoys fruit juices.

Another very good idea.

There are many healthy juice drinks to choose from including Lemon, Orange, Grape, Apple, Carrot, Tomato and Cucumber.

One that seems to be a super drink is Pomegranate juice.

The informative site authoritynutrition.com reports, “Pomegranates are among the healthiest fruits on earth.

They contain a range of beneficial plant compounds, unrivaled by other foods.

Many studies have shown that they have incredible benefits for your body, and may lower the risk of all sorts of diseases

They are so powerful that pomegranate juice has been found to have three times the antioxidant activity of red wine and green tea.

Pomegranate extract and powder is typically made from the peel, due to its high antioxidant content.”

The respected site webmd.com adds, “Antioxidants in pomegranates include polyphenols, such as tannins and anthocyanins. In fact, pomegranates may have even more antioxidant power than cranberry juice or green tea, Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN, a nutrition advisor for the American Institute for Cancer Research, has written in the AICR’s “Nutrition Wise” newsletter.”

If you need more convincing, you’ll get it.

The educational site medicaldaily.com prints, “The thing is, pomegranates are healthy in their own right. Sure, like strawberries, they’re a rich source of vitamin C and antioxidants, not to mention fiber and anti-inflammatory properties — but more than that, studies show eating the fruit and/or drinking pomegranate juice can help protect against disease, like certain cancers and Alzheimer’s.

A study from the University of California, Riverside found components of pomegranate juice may stop prostate cancer cells from moving, while also weakening the chemical signals that promote this kind of cancer to spread in the first place. And in a separate study, Israeli researchers found pomegranate juice may prevent and destroy breast cancer cells (though it’s hardly the only cancer-fighting food).”

Okay, we’ll share one more regarding benefits for the skin. The nice site stylesatlife.com glows, “Pomegranates are a powerhouse of beauty and skin care and a daily glass of fresh pomegranate juice can even work a miracle on skin that might seem to be beyond repair. Its anti-ageing properties help in cell renewal which keeps the skin from wearing out with age. It also purifies the blood imparting a natural glow to soft supple skin.”

With optimism, you look upon the sunny side of things. People say, ‘Studs, you’re an optimist.’ I never said I was an optimist. I have hope because what’s the alternative to hope? Despair? If you have despair, you might as well put your head in the oven.….Studs Terkel

Lisa, thanks for the suggestion.

A super sexy brunette and optimistic girl with a very bright future, Lisa is a Danube Princess that reminds us of how fortunate that we are as fans that more and more women are optimistic about life with more choices and options, which sometimes includes competitive grappling.
