Fortune vs Opportunities…

“[…] in examining their actions and lives one cannot see that they owed anything to fortune beyond opportunity, which brought them the material to mold into the form which seemed best to them. Without that opportunity their powers of mind would have been extinguished, and without those powers the opportunity would have come in vain.”

– The Prince (1513) – Niccolò Machiavelli
