Best Quotes about Opportunity
If you see the bandwagon you've missed it.
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
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
Always have your hook baited, in the pool you least think, there will be a fish.
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.
Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Where one door closes, another opens.
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.
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
Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of wood higher up.
Do not wait for ideal circumstances nor for the best opportunities; they will never come.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
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.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
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
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.
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
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
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
Arrange Whatever pieces come your way.
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces
A sign on the door of Opportunity reads Push.
You create your opportunities by asking for them.
The sad truth is that opportunity doesn't knock twice. You can put things off until tomorrow but tomorrow may never come. Where will you be a few years down the line. Will it be everything you dreamed of. We seal our fate with the choices we take, but don't give a second thought to the chances we take.
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
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
Let us my friends snatch our opportunity from the passing day.
Catch a man a fish, and you can sell it to him. Teach a man to fish, and you ruin a wonderful business opportunity.
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
Do you see difficulties in every opportunity or opportunities in every difficulty?
There is no future in any job. The future lies in the man who holds the job.
Crane, George W.
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.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
Opportunities neglected can never be recovered.
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.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Edison, Thomas A.
The back of one door is the face of another.
Every wall is a door.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.
The door of opportunity is wide open if you are prepared.
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
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 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.
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.
Some people steer by the light from the stars, while others steer by the lights from each passing ship.
We see the brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen.
Rainer, Maria Rilke
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
