I will study and get ready,
and perhaps my chance will come.
Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast;
in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.
It's choice - not chance - that determines your destiny.
Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice.
It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
William Jennings Bryan
Men are not prisoners of fate, but only prisoners of their own minds.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
