Best Quotes about Opportunity
The back of one door is the face of another.
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
When fortune knocks open the door.
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.
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.
A chip on the shoulder indicates that there is wood higher up.
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
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.
The lack of opportunity is ever the excuse of a weak, vacillating mind. Opportunities! Every life is full of them. Every newspaper article is an opportunity. Every client is an opportunity. Every sermon is an opportunity. Every business transaction is an opportunity -- an opportunity to be polite -- an opportunity to be manly -- an opportunity to be honest -- an opportunity to make friends.
Marden, Orison Swett
Make the iron hot by striking it.
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.
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.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
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.
One can present people with opportunities. One cannot make them equal to them.
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.
The same fence that shuts others out shuts you in.
Copeland, William Taylor
Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
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.
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
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
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
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
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
If you see the bandwagon you've missed it.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces
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.
Even a blind dog can find a bone every so often.
A good deal happens in a man's life that he isn't responsible for. Fortunate openings occur; but it is safe to remember that such breaks are occurring all the time, and other things being equal, the advantage goes to the man who is ready.
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 never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
Be ready when opportunity comes. Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet.
Chapin Jr., Roy D.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.
Henry J. Kaiser
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
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
Opportunities neglected can never be recovered.
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
When the flower blooms, the bees come uninvited.
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.
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
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
We see the brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen.
Rainer, Maria Rilke
Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
Forbes, B. C.
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.
You create your opportunities by asking for them.
Opportunity multiply as they are seized.
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
Why are there so many people who never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity?
