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
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.

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.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.
He's got the whole world at his feet and he can't find his shoes.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson

Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
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.
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.

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 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

A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew
