"If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door."
"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."
Thomas A. Edison
"I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it."
"The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it."
