20 Quotes About Second Chances That Will Make You Stop and Think

Were often granted a re-do without even realizing it. Here are 20 quotes about second chances that will make you stop and think about your opportunites.

Life is all about second chances. Not in every single aspect, of course, but we’re often granted a “re-do” without even realizing it.

The truth is, some of us are given a lot more but instead of being grateful, we feel entitled. We take people for granted and become hateful when they finally refuse to forgive our mistakes over and over again.

We’re only human, right? Every makes mistakes at some point. But when someone decides to forgive you and gives you another chance, you should grab it with both hands -- because you might not get a third one.

When it comes to life in general, second chances are basically new opportunities that we should take advantage of. Sure, life might seem ruthless and unfair at times, but not always.

Some people literally get a second chance to live, while others find a new love. We just have to learn to recognize and appreciate a new chance when it’s given to us.

Here are 20 quotes about second chances:

Every moment of your life is a second chance.


Thank God you are still alive for many have died and are dying as I speak. You still have the opportunity to change and make things right whilst those that have died wish for that second chance.


Having a second chance makes you want to work even harder.
