Best Quotes about Opportunity
People wait for opportunity to come along...yet it is there every morning.
Menace, Dennis the
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.
Opportunity always looks better going than coming.

Make the iron hot by striking it.
Arrange Whatever pieces come your way.
Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.
Henry J. Kaiser
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.
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.
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
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of 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.
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.
You must make your own opportunities.
Gough, John B.
The door of opportunity is wide open if you are prepared.
It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
There is far more opportunity than there is ability.
Edison, Thomas A.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew
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
We must open the doors of opportunity.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
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.
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
Do not wait for ideal circumstances nor for the best opportunities; they will never come.
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
Opportunity is no more than a better way of serving and providing for humanities needs.
Opportunities comes from knocking on doors until they open.
Even a blind dog can find a bone every so often.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
Opportunity multiply as they are seized.
Take a lesson from the mosquito. She never waits for an opening -- she makes one.
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.
Do you see difficulties in every opportunity or opportunities in every difficulty?
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.
The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment; it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone.
Marden, Orison Swett
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
We see the brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen.
Rainer, Maria Rilke
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.
What is opportunity, and when does it knock? It never knocks. You can wait a whole lifetime, listening, hoping, and you will hear no knocking. None at all. You are opportunity, and you must knock on the door leading to your destiny. You prepare yourself to recognize opportunity, to pursue and seize opportunity as you develop the strength of your personality, and build a self-image with which you are able to live -- with your self-respect alive and growing.
A chip on the shoulder indicates that there is wood higher up.
Little opportunities should be improved.
Right now a moment is fleeting by! Capture its reality in paint! To do that we must put all else out of our minds. We must become that moment, make ourselves a sensitive recording plate. give the image of what we actually see, forgetting everything that has been seen before our time.
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
When you feel that you have reached the end and that you cannot go one step further, when life seems to be drained of all purpose: What a wonderful opportunity o start all over again, to turn over a new page.
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.
Today's opportunities erase yesterday's failures.
There is no future in any job. The future lies in the man who holds the job.
Crane, George W.
