Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 5/16/05

Be ready when opportunity comes...Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet.
— Roy D. Chapin Jr.

Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast. In the pool where you least expect it, will be a fish.

The remarkable thing we have is a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.
— Charles Swindoll

Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day.

— Napoleon Bonaparte

Life is the sum of your choices.
— Albert Camus

We need to teach the next generation of children from Day One that they are responsible for their lives. Mankind's greatest gift, also its greatest curse, is that we have free choice. We can make our choices built from love or from fear.
— Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
