In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.
C. Wright Mills:
Freedom is not merely the opportunity to do as one pleases; neither is it merely the opportunity to choose between set alternatives. Freedom is, first of all, the chance to formulate the available choices, to argue over them -- and then, the opportunity to choose.
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
There is no security on this earth. Only opportunity.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
Problems are only opportunities with thorns on them.
Democracy does not guarantee equality of conditions - it only guarantees equality of opportunity.
James F. Bymes:
Too many people are thinking of security instead of opportunity. They seem to be more afraid of life than death
Martin Luther King, Jr.:
I look forward confidently to the day when all who work for a living will be one with no thought to their separateness as Negroes, Jews, Italians or any other distinctions. This will be the day when we bring into full realization the American dream -- a dream yet unfulfilled. A dream of equality of opportunity, of privilege and property widely distributed; a dream of a land where men will not take necessities from the many to give luxuries to the few; a dream of a land where men will not argue that the color of a man's skin determines the content of his character; a dream of a nation where all our gifts and resources are held not for ourselves alone, but as instruments of service for the rest of humanity; the dream of a country where every man will respect the dignity and worth of the human personality.
... without darkness
Nothing comes to birth,
As without light
Let your hook always be cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.
Thomas Alva Edison:
Opportunity is missed by most because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. www.wisdomquotes.com/cat_opportunity.html
