Best Quotes about Opportunity
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.
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.
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
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.
Where one door closes, another opens.
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.
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.
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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
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.
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
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
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.
Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
Opportunities are never lost; they are taken by others.
There is far more opportunity than there is ability.
Edison, Thomas A.
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.
Opportunity creates desire.
Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.
Some people steer by the light from the stars, while others steer by the lights from each passing ship.
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.
Start where you are. Distant fields always look greener, but opportunity lies right where you are. Take advantage of every opportunity of service.
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
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
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
People wait for opportunity to come along...yet it is there every morning.
Menace, Dennis the
When fortune knocks open the door.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
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.
When the sun rises, it rises for everyone.
Even a blind dog can find a bone every so often.
Always have your hook baited, in the pool you least think, there will be a fish.
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
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.
A sign on the door of Opportunity reads Push.
Opportunities neglected can never be recovered.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
There will always be a frontier where there is an open mind and a willing hand.
Kettering, Charles F.
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.
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
When the flower blooms, the bees come uninvited.
Not being beautiful was the true blessing... Not being beautiful forced me to develop my inner resources. The pretty girl has a handicap to overcome.
One can present people with opportunities. One cannot make them equal to them.
