Best Quotes about Opportunity
Always have your hook baited, in the pool you least think, there will be a fish.
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.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
The back of one door is the face of another.
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
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.
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
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.
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?
When fortune knocks open the door.
Some people steer by the light from the stars, while others steer by the lights from each passing ship.
Why are there so many people who never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity?
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.
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.
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
Today's opportunities erase yesterday's failures.
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
We must open the doors of opportunity.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
Opportunity creates desire.
Great investment opportunities come around when excellent companies are surrounded by unusual circumstances that cause the stock to be misappraised.
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.
Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew
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 do things when the opportunities come along. I've had periods in my life when I've had a bundle of ideas come along, and I've had long dry spells. If I get an idea next week, I'll do something. If not, I won't do a damn thing.
When you have the opportunity, you strike.
Opportunity is no more than a better way of serving and providing for humanities needs.
Enlarge the opportunity and the person will expand to fill it
A sign on the door of Opportunity reads Push.
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.
Be ready when opportunity comes. Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet.
Chapin Jr., Roy D.
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.
We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.
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
Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
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
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.
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
The same fence that shuts others out shuts you in.
Copeland, William Taylor
When the flower blooms, the bees come uninvited.
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.
Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.
Henry J. Kaiser
Every wall is a door.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
One can present people with opportunities. One cannot make them equal to them.
Catch a man a fish, and you can sell it to him. Teach a man to fish, and you ruin a wonderful business opportunity.
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
