Discretion is being able to raise your eyebrow instead of your voice.
He is able who thinks he is able.
Would ye both eat your cake and have your cake?
The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.
We are continually faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.
Fortune knocks but once, but misfortune has much more patience.
Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity presented to them. They have developed the opportunity that was at hand.
The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment; it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone.
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation leans on the doorbell.
