Discourage litigation. Persuade you neighbors to compromise whenever you can ... As a peace-maker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.

Abraham Lincoln

Do not wait for extraordinary situations to do good; try to use ordinary situations.

Jean Paul Richter

Failure is not fatal. Failure should be our teacher, nor our undertaker. It should challenge us to new heights of accomplishments, not pull us to new depths of despair. From honest failure can come valuable experience.

William Arthur Ward

Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently

Henry Ford

I do not believe we are all created equal. Physical and emotional differences, parental guidance, varying environments, being in the right place at the right time all play a role in enhancing or limiting development. But I do believe every man and woman, if given the opportunity and encouragement to recognize their potential, regardless of background, has the freedom to choose in our world. Will an individual be a taker or a giver in life? Will he be satisfied merely to exist, or will he seek a meaningful purpose? Will he dare to dream the impossible dream?

The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word 'crisis.' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger - but recognize the opportunity.

The lesson which life repeats and constantly enforces is 'look under foot.' You are always nearer the divine and the true sources of your power than you think. The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are. Do not despise you own place and hour. Every place is under the stars, every place is the center of the world.

John Burroughs

There is no security on this earth, there is only opportunity.

General Douglas MacArthur

To improve the golden moment of opportunity, and catch the good that is within our reach, is the great art of life.

William James

Wherever there is a human being there is an opportunity for kindness.

Seneca

I will greet this day with love in my heart. And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and I will be born again. I will love the sun for it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit. I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars. I will welcome happiness for it enlarges my heart; yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul. I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.

Og Mandino

No matter how full a reservoir of maxims one may possess, and no matter how good one\'s sentiments may be, if one has not taken advantage of every concrete opportunity to act, one\'s character may remain entirely unaffected for the better.

William James

Time goes by so fast, people go in and out of your life. You must never miss the opportunity to tell these people how much they mean to you.
