- Carson, Johnny
Opportunity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Opportunity

1.

Jackson, Jesse

2.

Demosthenes

3.
Opportunity is no more than a better way of serving and providing for humanities needs.

4.
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

5.
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.
Capone, Al

6.
Be ready when opportunity comes. Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet.
Chapin Jr., Roy D.

Keller, Helen

8.
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

9.
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.

10.
It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
YoungJr., Whitney

11.
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.
Buffett, Warren

12.
We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
Sharp, Tom

13.
Take a lesson from the mosquito. She never waits for an opening -- she makes one.
Kirkpatrick, Kirk

14.
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
Herold, Don

15.
If you see the bandwagon you've missed it.
Phillips, James

16.
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.
Steichen, Edward

17.
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
Hoffer, Eric

18.
Little opportunities should be improved.
FeNelon, Francois

19.
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.
Rockerfeller, David

20.
Opportunity always looks better going than coming.

21.
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.
Downs, Lawrence

22.
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.

23.
The back of one door is the face of another.
Proverb

24.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.
Wicker, John

25.
Some say opportunity knocks only once, That is not true. Opportunity knocks all the time, but you have to be ready for it. If the chance comes, you must have the equipment to take advantage of it.
L'Amour, Louis

26.
Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great. Weak men wait for opportunities; strong men make them.
Marden, Orison Swett

27.
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

28.
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.

29.
Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity.
Flanders, Alberta

30.
Always have your hook baited, in the pool you least think, there will be a fish.
Ovid

31.
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
Hill, Napoleon

32.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew

33.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson

34.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
Gracian, Baltasar

35.
Opportunities are never lost; they are taken by others.

36.
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
Landers, Ann

37.
Each problem has hidden in it an opportunity so powerful that it literally dwarfs the problem. The greatest success stories were created by people who recognized a problem and turned it into an opportunity.
Sugarman, Joseph

38.
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.
Maltz, Maxwell

39.
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces

40.
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

41.
Do you see difficulties in every opportunity or opportunities in every difficulty?

42.
You must make your own opportunities.
Gough, John B.

43.
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

44.
When the sun rises, it rises for everyone.
Proverb, Cuban

45.
Start where you are. Distant fields always look greener, but opportunity lies right where you are. Take advantage of every opportunity of service.
Collier, Robert

46.
The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word'crisis.'One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger - but recognize the opportunity.
John F. Kennedy

47.
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.

48.
There is no future in any job. The future lies in the man who holds the job.
Crane, George W.

49.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
Rowland, Helen

50.
Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
Proverb, Arabian
