Every one knows what Positivism is- what is B+ve, What is tough minded optimism, What is Positive Thinking Ain’t it?
Definition or Positivism :
A Concept that only scientific knowledge is the true knowledge of the world perceived through senses (the observable phenomenon). It is actually an extension of empiricism, and although it traces its roots to the UK philosopher Francis Bacon (1561-1626), it was popularized by the French philosopher Auguste Comte (1798-1857).

And some great quotable quotes:
“The sacred formula of positivism: love as a principle, the order as a foundation, and progress as a goal.”
― Auguste Comte
“From the study of the development of human intelligence, in all directions, and through all times, the discovery arises of a great fundamental law, to which it is necessarily subject, and which has a solid foundation of proof, both in the facts of our organization and in our historical experience. The law is this: that each of our leading conceptions — each branch of our knowledge — passes successively through three different theoretical conditions: the theological, or fictitious; the metaphysical, or abstract; and the scientific, or positive. In other words, the human mind, by its nature, employs in its progress three methods of philosophizing, the character of which is essentially different, and even radically opposed: namely, the theological method, the metaphysical, and the positive. Hence arise three philosophies, or general systems of conceptions on the aggregate of phenomena, each of which excludes the others. The first is the necessary point of departure of the human understanding, and the third is its fixed and definitive state. The second is merely a state of transition.”
― Auguste ComteCours de philosophie positiv
Positivist man is a curious creature who dwells in the tiny island of light composed of what he finds scientifically “meaningful,” while the whole surrounding area in which ordinary men live from day to day and have their dealings with other men is consigned to the outer darkness of the “meaningless.” Positivism has simply accepted the fractured being of modern man and erected a philosophy to intensify it.

Existentialism, whether successfully or not, has attempted instead to gather all the elements of human reality into a total picture of man. Positivist man and Existentialist man are no doubt offspring of the same parent epoch, but, somewhat as Cain and Abel were, the brothers are divided unalterably by temperament and the initial choice they make of their own being.”
― William BarrettIrrational Man: A Study in Existential Philosophy

POSITIVISM-
A philosophy that denies our knowledge of the Real and affirms our ignorance of the Apparent. Its longest exponent is Comte, its broadest Mill and its thickest Spencer.
Ambrose Bierce
Never indulge in people who follow a negative path because they will take you with them on the road of ruin. Show them the way to positivism even if there’s a risk of losing their friendship.
Siddharth Katragadda
I am not a positivist. Positivism states that what cannot be observed does not exist. This conception is scientifically indefensible, for it is impossible to make valid affirmations of what people ‘can’ or ‘cannot’ observe. One would have to say ‘only what we observe exists,’ which is obviously false.
Albert Einstein
Positivism eliminates any kind of natural law principle – for example, that there are economic laws which can be transgressed only at your peril. With positivism, there is a tendency to leap into ad hoc economic theory.
