If I missed my moment, I missed my moment. I mean, I wasn't pining to be president of the United States.
I wonder how often in the past I may have missed the good in people because I pre-judged, based on the differences?
I'm also looking for gems that the average reader might have missed.
I had to make a choice at one point in my life, of missing films or missing my children. It was a very easy decision to make because I missed my children so very much.
I never really look at life and worry about missed opportunities.
There were three Selma-to-Montgomery marches in March 1965, and Rosa Parks had missed the first one. Parks, whose act of civil disobedience sparked the Montgomery bus boycott in 1955, moved to Detroit two years later for safety reasons.
They say that Grandma Moses had several canvases going at the same time. Maybe it was a way for her to catch up with the time she missed while raising children and tending the farm. Like Grandma, I tend to have more than one poem or fiction going at a time. For me, it's just the way I think.
Lincoln made mistakes. Roosevelt made mistakes. Eisenhower made mistakes. The Battle of the Bulge was the biggest intelligence failure in American military history, much bigger than any in Vietnam or now. We didn't know that the Soviets were moving 400,000 or 500,000 troops. We missed it.
If you have a procedure with 10 parameters, you probably missed some.
Those companies that don't see the black and brown communities are missing, out of their closed eye, talent, which leads to money and growth. When baseball, football and basketball couldn't see the field, they missed talent and growth. The same is true in the tech industry.
I'm glad that my parents missed one thing that was really unbelievable. They saw me hit this great success. It was a blast and we had a lot of laughs. And it was just an amazing time. They passed away. And then after I got, you know, famous, all these haters came out of nowhere.
Old as she was, she still missed her daddy sometimes.
One night Roger was in a foul mood and he threw his entire bloody drumset across the stage. The thing only just missed me - I might have been killed.
History is nothing if not an epic tale of missed opportunities.
I always think about what I missed, and I think that was my driving force - never be satisfied with what I've done.
Sometimes, I feel like one who is on the sidelines, who has missed life itself.
I rode horseback three miles each way to get to high school, and in bad weather it was a problem sometimes to make my eight o'clock class on time. Like others, I often missed school to help on the farm, especially in the fall, until after harvest, and in the spring, during planting season.
Ezra Taft Benson
My coaches were great. My mom and dad. My dad never missed a wrestling meet.
That's the way I've been educated: I always think about what I missed and the things that you did, you did them, so you don't have to think about them any more.
I wish I had been home more when the children were growing up. I missed a lot.
I spent most of my young life in the business and missed out on school events. I needed to be a young person and do what I wanted to do.
If I'm jetlagging, and I've missed some meals, and it gets to that point in a movie that you're supposed to cry, I'll let my defences down from around my inherent standing level of cynicism, and I'll cry.
I missed my dad a lot growing up, even though we were together as a family. My dad was really a workaholic. And he was always working.
I was always incredibly driven and found it impossible to relax. I felt that if I slacked off for a minute to enjoy myself, then so many things would be missed.
I didn't have a teenage or early-20s experience that was free and without worry. I missed the screw-everything, have-a-good-time phase.
I had to stop traveling alone because I missed so many planes. When somebody runs up to you in the airport and begins to tell you their life story, you can't say, 'Excuse me, boo,' as they're weeping on your bosom.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
