opportunity

If I can make it clear that I’m still defying the Capitol right up to the end, the Capitol will have killed me… but not my spirit. What better way to give hope to the rebels?

Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

You haven’t hurt people — you’ve given them an opportunity. They just have to be brave enough to take it.

Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

I feel like I owe him something, and I hate owing people. Maybe if I had thanked him at some point, I’d be feeling less conflicted now. I thought about it a couple of times, but the opportunity never seemed to present itself. And now it never will. Because we’re going to be thrown into an arena to fight to the death. Exactly how am I supposed to work in a thank-you in there? Somehow it just won’t seem sincere if I’m trying to slit his throat.

Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

I had the privilege of being able to choose, or at least have the opportunity to work at, being anything but an actor.

Benedict Cumberbatch

I hope everyone that is reading this is having a really good day. And if you are not, just know that in every new minute that passes you have an opportunity to change that.

John F. Kennedy

Weak men wait for opportunities; strong men make them.

Time goes by so fast, people go in and out of your life. You must never miss the opportunity to tell these people how much they mean to you.

Alexander Graham Bell

Sometimes we stare so long at a door that is closing that we see too late the one that is open.

Alexander Graham Bell

Don’t get too comfortable with who you are at any given time – you may miss the opportunity to become who you want to be.
