Opportunity
 
  Every one has a fair turn to be as great as he pleases.
Jeremy Collier.

  Opportunity has hair in front, behind she is bald: if you seize her by the forelock you may hold her, but, if suffered to escape, not Jupiter himself can catch her again.
From the Latin.

  Opportunity is in respect to time, in some sense, as time is in respect to eternity: it is the small moment, the exact point, the critical minute, on which every good work so much depends.
Thomas Sprat.
