Emerson on opportunity

Freedom and opportunity are infinitely intertwined. I have found no more eloquent an illustration of that concept than in these words:

“The days come and go like muffled and veiled figures sent from a distant friendly party, but they say nothing, and if we do not use the gifts they bring, they carry them as silently away.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
