The city gives you a chance to start over, to come in as a stranger and meet other strangers and build something new and we are — We have to move into making the modern city something that keeps the advantages of strangers meeting strangers, but reestablishes the responsibility that existed in a smaller community.
Politics is like football; if you see daylight, go through the hole.
Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.
Opportunity comes but does not linger.
If you want to launch big ships, you have to go where the water is deep.
Seize opportunity by the beard, for it is bald behind.
They wrong opportunity who say she knocks but once.
Do when ye may, or suffer ye the nay, in love ’tis the way.
The doors of opportunity are marked “Push” and “Pull.”
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
