A Quote by W. J. Johnston on force, good, energy, opportunity, power, and wonder

Many persons wonder why they don't amount to more than they do, have good stuff in them, energetic persevering, and have ample opportunities. It is all a case of trimming the useless branches and throwing the whole force of power into the development of something that counts.

A Quote by W. Beran Wolfe on fiction, future, habits, life, men, men and women, opportunity, present, unhappiness, and women

One important source of unhappiness is the habit of putting off living to some fictional future date. Men and women are constantly making themselves unhappy because in deferring their lives to the future they lose sight of the the present and its golden opportunities for rich living.

A Quote by Viktor E. Frankl on acceptance, destiny, facts, lies, opportunity, suffering, and universe

When a man finds that it is his destiny to suffer, he will have to accept his suffering as his task. . . . He will have to acknowledge the fact that even in suffering he is unique and alone in the universe. No one can relieve him of his suffering or suffer in his place. His unique opportunity lies in the way in which he bears his burden.

A Quote by Viktor E. Frankl on belief, camping, challenge, life, majorities, men, opportunity, reality, and victory

Most men in a concentration camp believed that the real opportunities of life had passed. Yet, in reality, there was an opportunity and a challenge. One could make a victory of those experiences, turning life into an inner triumph, or one could ignore the challenge and simply vegetate, as did a majority of the prisoners.

A Quote by Victor Cherbuliez on habits, love, luck, mind, opportunity, patience, and vanity

What helps luck is a habit of watching for opportunities, of having a patient, but restless mind, of sacrificing one's ease or vanity, of uniting a love of detail to foresight, and of passing through hard times bravely and cheerfully.

A Quote by Vaughn J. Featherstone on blessings, christianity, friendship, good, listening, opportunity, service, spirit, and weakness

My beloved young friends, determine to serve one another. Opportunities for Christian acts of service do not always come at convenient times. Listen to the spirit when your flesh is weak. For truly the Master said, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me" (Matt. 25:40). The blessings are tenfold when we do those good, kindly acts of Christian service when it is inopportune or not convenient.

Vaughn J. Featherstone (1931 -)

A Quote by U.S. Supreme Court on books, certainty, exercise, government, internet, liberty, opportunity, speech, and world

The Government first contends that, even though the [Communications Decency Act] effectively censors discourse on many of the Internet's modalities - such as chat groups, newsgroups, and mail exploders - it is nonetheless constitutional because it provides a "reasonable opportunity" for speakers to engage in the restricted speech on the World Wide Web.... The Government's position is equivalent to arguing that a statute could ban leaflets on certain subjects as long as individuals are free to publish books.... One is not to have the exercise of his liberty of expression in appropriate places abridged on the plea that it may be exercised in some other place.
