The incentive for digging up gossip has become so great that people will break the law for the opportunity to take that picture. Then it crosses the line into invasion of privacy. The thing that’s really bad about it, though, is that the tabloids don’t tell the truth.

Brian Armstrong
I have an interesting perspective on depending on others. I think it gives people a chance to serve. And I’m not so much big on independence, as I am on interdependence. I’m not talking about co-dependency, I’m talking about giving people the opportunity to practicing love with its sleeves rolled up.
It doesn’t really matter to me whether you start or not. I play a lot of fourth quarters. I think that’s what’s most important to me. I think that’s what I’ve always cared about, just having an opportunity to finish games when it’s really winning time.

But in the back of my mind I’ve always looked to the biggest-scale Hollywood movies. Because to me the most satisfying experience is of watching a movie, if it’s done really well. And so that aspiration is always it for me, if I have the opportunity to do it.

What’s amazing is everyone knows who Spider-Man is. We were filming in a Chicano community and standing side by side were a Cal Tech lab technician and a six-year-old boy, and both of them were in awe of the character. In fact, you might say he’s an equal opportunity fantasy hero.
Capacity never lacks opportunity. It cannot remain undiscovered because it is sought by too many anxious to use it.

The massive migration from dumb phones to smart phones is a great opportunity for young companies to take advantage of.
Adam Dell
It always rains on tents. Rainstorms will travel thousands of miles, against prevailing winds for the opportunity to rain on a tent.

Steve McFadden
I don’t consider myself a feminist, but I’m down for my first opportunity to say something to the world to be so meaningful. If you asked me, ‘What do you want to say?’ it would be, ‘Love yourself more.’
In well-functioning markets, price equals opportunity cost. Meaning that the proper way to price out and charge us for things is to charge us what those resources could otherwise have produced. This is a lesson the Soviet Union never learned at all, and the rest is history.

The opportunity to be a part of the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games in Rio is a huge milestone in my career, and it will be the biggest performance of my life.

Yingluck Shinawatra
May we do good everywhere as we have opportunity, and results will not be wanting!

Leon Spinks
I would return to the Blackadder character if the opportunity came up. I have no qualms about that at all.
