Best Quotes about Opportunity
A chip on the shoulder indicates that there is wood higher up.
Take a lesson from the mosquito. She never waits for an opening -- she makes one.
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.
Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity.
Where one door closes, another opens.
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.
It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
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.
Great investment opportunities come around when excellent companies are surrounded by unusual circumstances that cause the stock to be misappraised.
Let us my friends snatch our opportunity from the passing day.
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.
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
We must open the doors of opportunity.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
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
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.
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
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
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces
The back of one door is the face of another.
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
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
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
Forbes, B. C.
We see the brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen.
Rainer, Maria Rilke
Was a great high wall there that tried to stop me. Was a great big sign there said private Property but on the back side it didn't say nothing. That side was made for you and me.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
Do you see difficulties in every opportunity or opportunities in every difficulty?
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
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.
If you see the bandwagon you've missed it.
We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
Opportunities are never lost; they are taken by others.
You create your opportunities by asking for them.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
One can present people with opportunities. One cannot make them equal to them.
Make the iron hot by striking it.
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.
There is far more opportunity than there is ability.
Edison, Thomas A.
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.
Catch a man a fish, and you can sell it to him. Teach a man to fish, and you ruin a wonderful business opportunity.
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
If you view all the things that happen to you, both good and bad, as opportunities, then you operate out of a higher level of consciousness.
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
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
Luck take a second look at what appears to be someone's good luck. You'll find not luck but preparation, planning, and success-producing thinking.
Schwartz, David J.
Opportunity creates desire.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.
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.
