Pessimists see a problem behind every opportunity. Optimists see an opportunity behind every problem.

quote

The reason is that opportunity is not some living entity out there. Opportunity is in you. You are opportunity. Only you can create opportunity. Only you can develop your capacities to make use of opportunities. Only you can discover opportunities and turn failure and frustration into success and fulfillment.

The great English novelist George Eliot once wrote: "The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us, and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone."

The master seventeenth century Dutch painter, Rembrandt, once wrote of his secret of self-discipline: "Try to put well in practice what you already know; and in so doing, you will, in good time, discover the hidden things you now inquire about. Practice what you know, and it will help to make clear what now you do not know."
