Fortune favors the prepared mind.
We secure our friends not by accepting favors but by doing them.
Whenever we think of Christ, we should recall the love that led Him to bestow on us so many graces and favors, and also the great love God showed in giving us in Christ a pledge of His love; for love calls for love in return. Let us strive to keep this always before our eyes and to rouse ourselves to love Him.
Saint Teresa of Avila
Racism, because it favors color over talent, is bad for business.
Fortune always favors the brave, and never helps a man who does not help himself.
P. T. Barnum
Friendship is an arrangement by which we undertake to exchange small favors for big ones.
Charles de Montesquieu
I believe that no man who holds a leader's position should ever accept favors from either side. He is then committed to show favors. A leader must stand alone.
Most people return small favors, acknowledge medium ones and repay greater ones - with ingratitude.

J. Reuben Clark
Bridging the virtual world with the physical word is really when social media channels come to life and the magic happens. Because whoever coined the term 'social media' didn't do us any favors. It's not really media. It's more like the telephone, less like the TV.
Amy Jo Martin
We need an equal opportunity society, one in which government does not see its job as picking winners and losers. Where do you go if you want special favors? Government. Where do you go if you want a tax break? Government. Where do you go if you want a handout? Government. This must stop.
Fortune favors the brave.
Candidate Obama was either exceptionally naive or willfully disingenuous when he vowed to change the way Washington works.

There are slavish souls who carry their appreciation for favors done them so far that they strangle themselves with the rope of gratitude.
We are never doing anyone any favors by withholding our gifts from the world. It's scary to be fierce, but you can't compromise that for fear of losing those around you.
Venus favors the bold.
