Chance Quotes

The successful man is the one who had the chance and took it.

Roger Babson

If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down.

Mary Pickford

Nothing important was ever achieved without someone taking a chance.

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Luck is being ready for the chance.

Chance corrects us of many faults that reason would not know how to correct.

Francois De La Rochefoucauld

Do you want to be safe and good, or do you want to take a chance and be great?

Jimmy Johnson

Work and acquire, and thou hast chained the wheel of Chance.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.

William Jennings Bryan

All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsion, habit, reason, passion, and desire.


A problem is a chance for your to do your best.

Duke Ellington

It is reported that more than 90% of what we worry about never happens. That means that our negative worries have less than a 10% chance of being correct. If this is so, isnít being positive more realistic than being negative? Think about your own life. Iíll wager that most of what you worry about never happens. So are you being realistic when you worry all the time? No!

Susan Jeffers

When you suffer an attack of nerves you're being attacked by the nervous system. What chance has a man got against a system?

Russell Hoban

When a man of normal habits is ill, everyone hastens to assure him that he is going to recover. When a vegetarian is ill which fortunately very seldom happens, everyone assures him that he is going to die, and that they told him so, and that it serves him right. They implore him to take at least a little gravy, so as to give himself a chance of lasting out the night


Something will have gone out of us as a people if we ever let the remaining wilderness be destroyed; if we permit the last virgin forests to be turned into comic books and plastic cigarette cases; if we drive the few remaining members of the wild species into zoos or to extinction; if we pollute the last clean air and dirty the last clean streams and push our paved roads through the last of the silence, so that never again will Americans be free from noise, the exhausts, the stinks of human and automotive waste. And so that never again can we have the chance to see ourselves single, separate, vertical and individual in the world, part of the environment of trees and rocks and soil, brother to the other animals, part of the natural world and competent to belong in it. We simply need that wild country available to us, even if we never do more than drive to its edge and look in. For it can be a means of reassuring ourselves of our sanity as creatures, a part of the geography of hope.

Wallace Stegner

In terms of wilderness preservation, Alaska is the last frontier. This time, given one great final chance, let us strive to do it right. Not in our generation, nor ever again, will we have a land and wildlife opportunity approaching the scope and importance of this one.
