Theodore Isaac Rubin

Each of us has about 40 chances to accomplish our goals in life. I learned this first through agriculture, because all farmers can expect to have about 40 growing seasons, giving them just 40 chances to improve on every harvest.
Howard Graham Buffett
As far as U.S. intelligence knows, Iran is developing nuclear capacities, but they don't know if they are trying to develop nuclear weapons or not. Chances are they're developing what's called 'nuclear capability,' which many states have. That is the ability to have nuclear weapons if they decide to do it. That's not a crime.

Just keep taking chances and having fun.

Our lives improve only when we take chances - and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.
If we study learning as a data science, we can reverse engineer the human brain and tailor learning techniques to maximize the chances of student success.

In my case, I can sincerely say that nothing is impossible... When I was saying I want to be No. 1 of the world, and I was seven or eight years old, most of the people were laughing at me because it seems like I have one percent of chances to do that, and I've done it.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
