Best Quotes about Opportunity
We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.
Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
Men who are resolved to find a way for themselves will always find opportunities enough; and if they do not find them, they will make them.
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.
Every wall is a door.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
Every minute starts an hour and every minute is a new opportunity. Each time the clock ticks you have a chance to start over, to say, do, think, or feel something in such a way that you and the world are better for 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.
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
If you want to succeed in the world you must make your own opportunities as you go on. The man who waits for some seventh wave to toss him on dry land will find that the seventh wave is a long time a-coming. You can commit no greater folly than to sit by the road side until someone comes along and invites you to ride with him to wealth or influence.
Gough, John B.
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.
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
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.
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.
There will always be a frontier where there is an open mind and a willing hand.
Kettering, Charles F.
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
Why are there so many people who never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity?
Be ready when opportunity comes. Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet.
Chapin Jr., Roy D.
When the sun rises, it rises for everyone.
When fortune knocks open the door.
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.
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
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.
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
The lack of opportunity is ever the excuse of a weak, vacillating mind. Opportunities! Every life is full of them. Every newspaper article is an opportunity. Every client is an opportunity. Every sermon is an opportunity. Every business transaction is an opportunity -- an opportunity to be polite -- an opportunity to be manly -- an opportunity to be honest -- an opportunity to make friends.
Marden, Orison Swett
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
Opportunity multiply as they are seized.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces
Born often under another sky, placed in the middle of an always moving scene, himself driven by the irresistible torrent which draws all about him, the American has no time to tie himself to anything, he grows accustomed only to change, and ends by regarding it as the natural state of man. He feels the need of it, more he loves it; for the instability; instead of meaning disaster to him, seems to give birth only to miracles all about him.
Tocqueville, Alexis De
Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.
Henry J. Kaiser
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
You do things when the opportunities come along. I've had periods in my life when I've had a bundle of ideas come along, and I've had long dry spells. If I get an idea next week, I'll do something. If not, I won't do a damn thing.
We see the brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen.
Rainer, Maria Rilke
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
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
People wait for opportunity to come along...yet it is there every morning.
Menace, Dennis the
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.
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.
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.
Opportunities neglected can never be recovered.
Many of us have heard opportunity knocking at our door, but by the time we unhooked the chain, pushed back the bolt, turned two locks, and shuts off the burglar alarm -- it was gone.
Written in Chinese, the word crisis, is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represent opportunity.
Kennedy, John F.
