Schwartz, David J.
This American system of ours. call it Americanism, call it capitalism, call it what you like, gives to each and every one of us a great opportunity if we only seize it with both hands and make the most of it.
Born often under another sky, placed in the middle of an always moving scene, himself driven by the irresistible torrent which draws all about him, the American has no time to tie himself to anything, he grows accustomed only to change, and ends by regarding it as the natural state of man. He feels the need of it, more he loves it; for the instability; instead of meaning disaster to him, seems to give birth only to miracles all about him.
Tocqueville, Alexis De

Make the iron hot by striking it.
Some people steer by the light from the stars, while others steer by the lights from each passing ship.
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
You do things when the opportunities come along. I've had periods in my life when I've had a bundle of ideas come along, and I've had long dry spells. If I get an idea next week, I'll do something. If not, I won't do a damn thing.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew
