Chloe Rattray
“People aren’t always what you want them to be. Sometimes they disappoint you or let you down, but you have to give them a chance first. You can’t just meet someone and expect them to be everything you’re looking for and then be angry when they’re not every hope and aspiration you projected onto them. It’s foolish to believe that someone will be what you imagine them to be. And sometimes, when you give them a chance, they turn out to be better than you imagined. Different, but better.”
Chloe Rattray, Sacré Noir

C. JoyBell C.
“A lifetime isn't forever, so take the first chance, don't wait for the second one! Because sometimes, there aren't second chances! And if it turns out to be a mistake? So what! This is life! A whole bunch of mistakes! But if you never get a second chance at something you didn't take a first chance at? That's true failure.”
C. JoyBell C.

Karen Kingsbury
“I tell of hearts and souls and dances...
Butterflies and second chances;
Desperate ones and dreamers bound,
Seeking life from barren ground,
Who suffer on in earthly fate
The bitter pain of agony hate,
Might but they stop and here forgive
Would break the bonds to breathe and live
And find that God in goodness brings
A chance for change, the hope of wings
To rest in Him, and self to die
And so become a butterfly.”
Karen Kingsbury, Oceans Apart

Derek Landy

"Or give them a chance to redeem themselves.”
Derek Landy, Death Bringer

“‎"What does it mean if you tried to get somewhere, and you didn't?" "Like what?" "Like if you were trying to get somewhere, but you couldn't find it?
Does that mean something bad?" "No. It doesn't mean something bad. It just means you have a second chance to do it. And two chances is always
better than just one.”
C. JoyBell C.

“Hearts will break and people will hurt you, darling.” Her mother said. “But when you let those people control your outlook on the life, you only allow them to have a greater hold on your happiness. Once you accept the fact that every day is a new day to begin again, life becomes a much easier path to walk.”
Courtney Giardina, Holding on to Georgia

Sarah Dessen
“I put my pen to the paper and began to write. I’d made so many wishes for so many couples quietly in my head as they drove away, but writing the words out made it seem more real, possible. For them, and maybe for me.

I folded it shut, then put it on the wall before I could change my mind, right above Jilly’s. As Michael Salem called out to her and she started his way, I crossed the backyard, moving toward the music. When I looked back at the wish wall from a distance, it was a sea of squares: I couldn’t even find mine among them. So many things we ask for, hope for, prayers put out into a world so wide: there was no way they could all be answered. But you had to keep asking. If you didn’t, nothing even had a chance of coming true.”
Sarah Dessen, Once and for All

Suzan Battah

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“As it peaks over the horizon, does not a sunrise whisper the opportunity to try again. And if the day passes and our efforts were stunted by the bane of our insecurities or blunted by the challenges of life, does not a sunset invite us to rest before it whispers the same message the next morning?”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Emory R. Frie
“But don’t we all deserve a chance before we’re judged?”
Emory R. Frie, Neverland

Malebo Sephodi
“It's time to reclaim your life..
One breath at a time.”
Malebo Sephodi

Kelly Siskind

Kelly Siskind, Licks

Victoria L. James
“Just close your eyes and fall. Fall backwards in your mind and tell me who you see catching you. Is it him... or is it me?”
Victoria L. James, Natexus

Felice Stevens
“The wonderful thing about second chances is that they exist”
Felice Stevens, The Shape of You

André Aciman
“Or were we like people who have died before their time and are given a second chance by some minor deity, but with so many provisos that the new life feels like a deferred death?”
André Aciman, Enigma Variations

André Aciman
“I had meant to take her to my favorite pastry shop after dinner. I'd known happiness there once, or maybe not happiness, but the vision of it. I wanted to see whether the place had changed at all, or whether I had changed, or whether, just by sitting with her I could make up for old loves I'd gotten so close to but had never been bold enough to seize. Always got so very close, and always turned my back when the time came. Manfred and I had dessert here so many times, especially after the movies, and before Manfred, Maud and I, because it was so hot on summer nights that we'd stop to drink fizzy lemonades here, night after night, happy to be together drinking nothing stronger. And Chloe, of course, on those cold afternoons on Rivington Street so many years ago. My life, my real life, had not even happened yet, and all of this was rehearsal still. Tonight, I thought, relishing Joyce's words and feeling exquisitely sorry for myself, the time has come for me to set out on my journey westward. Then I thought of Saint Augustine's words: "Sero te amavi! Late have I loved you!”
André Aciman, Enigma Variations

Lisa Renee Jones
“And I dare to believe that it really is. I dare to bet on us again.”
Lisa Renee Jones, Being Me

Ahmed Mostafa
“I can't tell whether a revived man would appreciate his second chance or yearn for the stolen serenity.”
Ahmed Mostafa

Thomas Lopinski
“Then it happened. One of those rare moments when your faith in the Almighty is reaffirmed and you realize that a chapter in a person’s life has just been punctuated with a comma instead of a period.”
Thomas Lopinski, The Art of Raising Hell
