The people that really succeed in the world
are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want,
and, if they can't find them, make them.
The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive.
The great opportunity in your life is where you are right now.
Properly perceived, every situation becomes an opportunity for you.
Your destiny is not a matter of chance,
it's a matter of your choice.
It's not something you wait for,
but rather something you achieve with effort.
Things won't turn up in this world until you turn them up.
You develop opportunity by applying persistence to your possibilities.
Opportunity is all around you. Look for it, and you will find it.

If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you've made me smile, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand.
