Day Right Quote #17: Our Lives Are Defined by Opportunities; Even The Ones We Miss.

I remember when screenwriter Eric Roth spoke at Maui Writers Conference. He was as eloquent then (he'd written the #screenplay for Snow Falling on Cedars) as he is now with this line he wrote for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, "Our lives are defined by opportunities; even the ones we miss."

Have you been presented with an opportunity?

Are you on the fence? Don't play it safe. Take the bolder of the options.

We are here to embrace opportunities, not to miss them.

Do things differently. Old ways won't open new doors.
