We trained hard ... but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization
Best Quotes about Opportunity
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces
Always have your hook baited, in the pool you least think, there will be a fish.
Opportunity is no more than a better way of serving and providing for humanities needs.
Was a great high wall there that tried to stop me. Was a great big sign there said private Property but on the back side it didn't say nothing. That side was made for you and me.
You must make your own opportunities.
Gough, John B.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Edison, Thomas A.
A good deal happens in a man's life that he isn't responsible for. Fortunate openings occur; but it is safe to remember that such breaks are occurring all the time, and other things being equal, the advantage goes to the man who is ready.
Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting -- a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
This American system of ours. call it Americanism, call it capitalism, call it what you like, gives to each and every one of us a great opportunity if we only seize it with both hands and make the most of it.
There is far more opportunity than there is ability.
Edison, Thomas A.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
Opportunity is ever worth expecting; let your hook be ever hanging ready, the fish will be in the pool where you least imagine it to be.
If you view all the things that happen to you, both good and bad, as opportunities, then you operate out of a higher level of consciousness.
Make the iron hot by striking it.
People think that at the top there isn't much room. They tend to think of it as an Everest. My message is that there is tons of room at the top.
Opportunities comes from knocking on doors until they open.
You can't always wait for the guys at the top. Every manager at every level in the organization has an opportunity, big or small, to do something. Every manager's got some sphere of autonomy. Don't pass the buck up the line.
There is no future in any job. The future lies in the man who holds the job.
Crane, George W.
Take a lesson from the mosquito. She never waits for an opening -- she makes one.
Be ready when opportunity comes. Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet.
Chapin Jr., Roy D.
Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming.
Subtract from the great man all that he owes to opportunity, all that he owes to chance, and all that he gained by the wisdom of his friends and the folly of his enemies, and the giant will often be seen to be a pygmy.
Colton, Charles Caleb
Opportunities, many times, are so small that we glimpse them not and yet they are often the seeds of great enterprises. Opportunities are also everywhere and so you must always let your hook be hanging. When you least expect it, a great fish will swim by.
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.
Opportunities are everywhere.The recession might be drawing to a close, but its continuing legacy is employers' reliance on short-term staff.There may be fewer jobs for life, but there are more jobs in a lifetime.
There will always be a frontier where there is an open mind and a willing hand.
Kettering, Charles F.
One can present people with opportunities. One cannot make them equal to them.
Too often the opportunity knocks, but by the time you push back the chain, push back the bolt, unhook the locks and shut off the burglar alarm, it's too late.
Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us daily.
One cannot expect to coast along and rise automatically to the top, no matter what friends you may have in the company. There may have been a time when, in large corporations, a person could rise simply because he had a stock interest or because he had friends in top management. That's not true today. Success in business requires training and discipline and hard work. But if you're not frightened by these things, the opportunities are just as great today as they ever were.
We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.
Luck take a second look at what appears to be someone's good luck. You'll find not luck but preparation, planning, and success-producing thinking.
Schwartz, David J.
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
You have to recognize when the right place and the right time fuse and take advantage of that opportunity. There are plenty of opportunities out there. You can't sit back and wait.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
When you have the opportunity, you strike.
We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
If you real desire is to be good, there is no need to wait for the money before you do it; you can do it now, this very moment, and just where you are.
The right man is the one that seizes the moment.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
We must open the doors of opportunity.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
Where one door closes, another opens.
Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of wood higher up.
Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity.
One of the earliest lessons I learned as a child was that if you looked away from something, it might not be there when you looked back.
Wideman, John Edgar
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
