When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
Jesse Jackson quotes
We praise or blame as one or the other affords more opportunity for exhibiting our power of judgment.
Friedrich Nietzsche quotes
It's nice to have the opportunity to play for so much money, but it's nicer to win it.
Paul Bryant quotes
Good fortune is what happens when opportunity meets with planning.
Thomas Alva Edison quotes
The message that personal computers can do neat things, that software is great stuff, that there's an exciting opportunity here and Microsoft is involved in it, that's a worthwhile message for Microsoft to get out.
Bill Gates quotes
Opportunity is a favorable occasion for grasping a disappointment.
Ambrose Bierce quotes
The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.
John Stuart Mill quotes
My country owes me nothing. It gave me, as it gives every boy and girl, a chance. It gave me schooling, independence of action, opportunity for service and honor. In no other land could a boy from a country village, without inheritance or influential friends, look forward with unbounded hope.
Herbert Hoover quotes
Any power must be an enemy of mankind which enslaves the individual by terror and force, whether it arises under the Fascist or the Communist flag. All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded to the individual.
Albert Einstein quotes
The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are.
John Burroughs quotes
