Best Quotes about Opportunity
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
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.
Opportunity creates desire.
Many of us have heard opportunity knocking at our door, but by the time we unhooked the chain, pushed back the bolt, turned two locks, and shuts off the burglar alarm -- it was gone.
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 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.
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.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
You must make your own opportunities.
Gough, John B.
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.
Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us daily.
People wait for opportunity to come along...yet it is there every morning.
Menace, Dennis the
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
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.
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
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
There is far more opportunity than there is ability.
Edison, Thomas A.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity.
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
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
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
If you see the bandwagon you've missed it.
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.
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.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
When fortune knocks open the door.
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.
Make the iron hot by striking it.
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
Where one door closes, another opens.
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
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.
The right man is the one that seizes the moment.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting -- a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.
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
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
Opportunities neglected can never be recovered.
Start where you are. Distant fields always look greener, but opportunity lies right where you are. Take advantage of every opportunity of service.
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 the sun rises, it rises for everyone.
Even a blind dog can find a bone every so often.
You create your opportunities by asking for them.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
Take a lesson from the mosquito. She never waits for an opening -- she makes one.
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.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
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.
When the flower blooms, the bees come uninvited.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew
