Along the way, I had the opportunity to pass through the dominions of the United Fruit, convincing me once again of just how terrible these capitalist octopuses are.

I think I probably made a mistake in the Hardwick case... I do think it was inconsistent in a general way with Roe. When I had the opportunity to reread the opinions a few months later, I thought the dissent had the better of the arguments.powell, lewis f., jr.
My wife Deidre bought the game for my son A.J. and he's loved it ever since. So when we had the opportunity to become a part of it, I couldn't say no.albert pujols

But I do believe that's when you do your soul-searching. I think when you have these trials that life gives you, it is an opportunity to find out who you are. Not just who you are when everything's great, but who are you when every thing is taken away from you and you have nothing.ellen degeneres
The separation of families to me is very close to my heart because we lived that as immigrants.

Every man ought to have the fullest opportunity of establishing his innocence if he can.
Another was, "Watch your opportunity."
I cannot properly give advice to anybody. It is very often supposed Judges can give advice, and I therefore take this public opportunity of saying that a Judge cannot do it.
You've had a wonderful opportunity to become educated people, but what really matters is not what you have learned and not what is said to you on this day, but what you do with all the days ahead of you.
