Quotable Sunday

Welcome to Quotable Sunday!  The day we get to just relax and post some of our favorite quotes.

~ Check back throughout the day and visit all the other quoters and leave some comment love on everyone’s posts.

My quotes today are on Opportunity:

Jumping at several small opportunities may get us there more quickly than waiting for one big one to come along.  ~Hugh Allen

When I look back now over my life and call to mind what I might have had simply for taking and did not take, my heart is like to break.  ~William Hale White

Opportunity is often difficult to recognize; we usually expect it to beckon us with beepers and billboards.  ~William Arthur Ward

Opportunity is a bird that never perches.  ~Claude McDonald

Opportunity is as scarce as oxygen; men fairly breathe it and do not know it.  ~Doc Sane

Opportunities do not come with their values stamped upon them.  ~Maltbie Babcock

Nothing is so often irretrievably missed as a daily opportunity.  ~Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

It’s important to remember to take opportunities., without them we would not be where we are.  I have taken so many opportunities that have played a part to get me where I am.  Some of them worked out and some didn’t but without the ones that didn’t I wouldn’t be who I am and have the values, integrity and ethics that I do.  It’s one thing I can say, everything both good and bad I have experienced are part of what make me who I am and that is why even the opportunities I took that ended up not working out I am still thankful for.

What about you?  Are you able to use every opportunity (good and bad) to better yourself?  Have a great Sunday and don’t forget to link up and visit all the other participants.
