Best Quotes about Opportunity
There will always be a frontier where there is an open mind and a willing hand.
Kettering, Charles F.
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.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
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
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
When the sun rises, it rises for everyone.
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
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.
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
Talent alone won't make you a success. Neither will being in the right place at the right time, unless you are ready. The most important question is: Are your ready?
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
We see the brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen.
Rainer, Maria Rilke
When the flower blooms, the bees come uninvited.
Why are there so many people who never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity?
We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.
Some people steer by the light from the stars, while others steer by the lights from each passing ship.
Always have your hook baited, in the pool you least think, there will be a fish.
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.
You create your opportunities by asking for them.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
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.
Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
Forbes, B. C.
People think that at the top there isn't much room. They tend to think of it as an Everest. My message is that there is tons of room at the top.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
Great investment opportunities come around when excellent companies are surrounded by unusual circumstances that cause the stock to be misappraised.
Opportunities neglected can never be recovered.
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.
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
There is no future in any job. The future lies in the man who holds the job.
Crane, George W.
Arrange Whatever pieces come your way.
Let us my friends snatch our opportunity from the passing day.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.
When you have the opportunity, you strike.
If you want to succeed in the world you must make your own opportunities as you go on. The man who waits for some seventh wave to toss him on dry land will find that the seventh wave is a long time a-coming. You can commit no greater folly than to sit by the road side until someone comes along and invites you to ride with him to wealth or influence.
Gough, John B.
Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming.
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.
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
Opportunities comes from knocking on doors until they open.
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.
Where one door closes, another opens.
People wait for opportunity to come along...yet it is there every morning.
Menace, Dennis the
Make the iron hot by striking it.
There is far more opportunity than there is ability.
Edison, Thomas A.
