The Standpoint of Opportunity

How often one is tempted to believe that opportunity is lost in the past, therefore to be regretted and grieved over, or probable in the future, just out of reach! One does not often record opportunities naturally seized as a matter of course, but only those that have been missed.

A student of Christian Science had an illustration of this. She wanted some old Persian rugs in mellow colors and certain sizes. At a sale by auction she saw exactly what she wanted. But since she could not go to the sale, she asked a friend to bid for her. Her friend forgot, and the rugs went for a song.
