A Quote by St. John de Crévecoeur on chance, direction, principles, punishment, and timidity

He who governs himself according to what he calls his principles may be punished either by one party or the other for those very principles. He who proceeds without principle, as chance, timidity, or self-preservation directs, will not perhaps fare better; but he will be less blamed.

A Quote by Sir Henry Taylor on chance, thought, and world

We figure to ourselves The thing we like; and then we build it up, As chance will have it, on the rock or sand,- For thought is tired of wandering o'er the world, And homebound Fancy runs her bark ashore.

Sir Henry Taylor (1800 - 1886)

A Quote by Sherman Finesilver on chance, failure, mind, time, and worry

Keep these concepts in mind: You've failed many times, although you don't remember. You fell down the first time you tried to walk. You almost drowned the first time you tried to swim. . . . R. H. Macy failed 7 times before his store in New York caught on. Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times. Don't worry about failure. My suggestion to each of you: Worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try.

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on certainty, chance, delay, expectation, future, power, present, time, and uncertainty

The greatest loss of time is delay and expectation, which depend upon the future. We let go the present, which we have in our power, and look forward to that which depends upon chance, and so relinquish a certainty for an uncertainty.
