Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great. Weak men wait for opportunities; strong men make them.

When we have the means to pay for what we desire, what we get is not so much what is best, as what is costliest. Instead of this, one should endeavor, as far as possible, to have everything the best of its kind; to read the best books, to make choice of the most genial companions, to hear the ablest speakers, to see the finest pictures, to attend the best plays, to hear the sweetest music, to grow the finest fruit, and to cultivate the most beautiful and fragrant flowers. To compass these higher pleasures requires not so much an enlarged expenditure of time, money, or troubl, as a purpose never to put up with an inferior gratification when an enjoyment of a higher strain is equally within the reach.

Christian Nestell Bovee

Denis Waitley
