 Self Righting Shapes are a market metaphor for optimists:

There is something about a turtle on its back that twists your heart. With neck craning toward the ground and legs waving to no effect, it is the image of helplessness. But, malicious kids aside, turtles almost never end up upended. And it turns out that the apparent risk factor for that predicament—the turtle's rigid carapace—is less a liability than an asset, surprisingly well-suited to the turtle's goal of righting itself. The secret is in the mathematics of its shape.

Would make for a nice paperweight.
