I believe luck is preparation meeting opportunity. If you hadn’t been prepared when the opportunity came along, you wouldn’t have been lucky.
People will try to tell you that all of the great opportunities have been snapped up. In reality, the world changes every second, blowing new opportunities in all directions, including yours.
With every experience, you alone are painting your own canvas, thought by thought, choice by choice.
Start where you are. Distant fields always look greener, but opportunity lies right where you are. Take advantage of every opportunity of service.
Robert J. Collier
Note how good you feel after you have encouraged someone else. No other argument is necessary to suggest that never miss the opportunity to give encouragement.
George Burton Adams
No steam or gas drives anything until it is confined. No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined.
Harry Emerson Fosdick
The value of compassion cannot be over-emphasized. Anyone can criticize. It takes a true believer to be compassionate. No greater burden can be borne by an individual than to know no one cares or understands.
Arthur H. Stainback
Sir Francis Bacon
…A great gift has been made to each and every one of us—the privilege of living in the world for a short span of years and the opportunity of doing our part to help the less fortunate; to improve civilization; to advance knowledge, both the scientific knowledge of men and the wisdom which is from above. The gift of human life and the opportunity which is ours to serve others…should be regarded as a sacred trust.
When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.
Alexander Graham Bell

I knew that I could use my time to really make a difference. I took a break. Right before things feel apart. I'd saved up some money,...
Love And CharitySubmitted by Anonymous
My 3-year-old showed me just how good it feels to give to others when we went to the store for our 'treat day' (Fridays). She picked out her treat, and noticed a little boy asking his mom to buy him a chocolate bar. The little boy's mom told him they only had enough for bread and milk. My daughter turned to me...

An opportunist is ever-rising, whereas a pessimist has difficulties in identifying opportunities for rising.
