Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of wood higher up.
Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us daily.
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.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
There will always be a frontier where there is an open mind and a willing hand.
Kettering, Charles F.
Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity that was at hand.
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.
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
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.
If a window of opportunity appears, don't pull down the shade.
Peters, Thomas J.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.

A chip on the shoulder indicates that there is wood higher up.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.

Edison, Thomas A.

Henry J. Kaiser

You create your opportunities by asking for them.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
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.
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 multiply as they are seized.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
A sign on the door of Opportunity reads Push.
Enlarge the opportunity and the person will expand to fill it
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
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
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.
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.
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.
Make the iron hot by striking it.
Great investment opportunities come around when excellent companies are surrounded by unusual circumstances that cause the stock to be misappraised.
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
Always have your hook baited, in the pool you least think, there will be a fish.
Start where you are. Distant fields always look greener, but opportunity lies right where you are. Take advantage of every opportunity of service.
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.
Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity.
When fortune knocks open the door.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
Many of us spend our lives searching for success when it is usually so close that we can reach out and touch it.
Conwell, Russel H.
Opportunities are never lost; they are taken by others.
The back of one door is the face of another.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
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.
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 lost by deliberation.
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
