Best Quotes about Opportunity
There is no future in any job. The future lies in the man who holds the job.
Crane, George W.
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.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
When you have the opportunity, you strike.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
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
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
Opportunity always looks better going than coming.
Take a lesson from the mosquito. She never waits for an opening -- she makes one.
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.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
You must make your own opportunities.
Gough, John B.
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.
Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of wood higher up.
Enlarge the opportunity and the person will expand to fill it
He's got the whole world at his feet and he can't find his shoes.
Written in Chinese, the word crisis, is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represent opportunity.
Kennedy, John F.
Make the iron hot by striking it.
The best men are not those who have waited for chances but who have taken them; besieged the chance; conquered the chance; and made chance the servitor.
Chapin, Edwin Hubbel
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.
Opportunities are never lost; they are taken by others.
Today's opportunities erase yesterday's failures.
The same fence that shuts others out shuts you in.
Copeland, William Taylor
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
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
Always have your hook baited, in the pool you least think, there will be a fish.
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.
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
There is only one optimist. He has been here since man has been on this earth, and that is man himself. If we hadn't had such a magnificent optimism to carry us through all these things, we wouldn't be here. We have survived it on our optimism.
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
Arbiter, Gauis Petronius
If you see the bandwagon you've missed it.
When fortune knocks open the door.
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 flower blooms, the bees come uninvited.
Be ready when opportunity comes. Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet.
Chapin Jr., Roy D.
Catch a man a fish, and you can sell it to him. Teach a man to fish, and you ruin a wonderful business opportunity.
You create your opportunities by asking for them.
When the sun rises, it rises for everyone.
When one door closes, another opens. But we often look so regretfully upon the closed door that we don't see the one that has opened for us.
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.
Talent alone won't make you a success. Neither will being in the right place at the right time, unless you are ready. The most important question is: Are your ready?
Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
