Best Quotes about Opportunity
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.
Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.
Henry J. Kaiser
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.
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
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
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.
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.
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.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
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.
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
Opportunity is no more than a better way of serving and providing for humanities needs.
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
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.
Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of wood higher up.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
Why are there so many people who never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity?
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Edison, Thomas A.
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.
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.
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?
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity that was at hand.
Right now a moment is fleeting by! Capture its reality in paint! To do that we must put all else out of our minds. We must become that moment, make ourselves a sensitive recording plate. give the image of what we actually see, forgetting everything that has been seen before our time.
Opportunity always looks better going than coming.
Opportunity creates desire.
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
Written in Chinese, the word crisis, is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represent opportunity.
Kennedy, John F.
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.
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 same fence that shuts others out shuts you in.
Copeland, William Taylor
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
Today's opportunities erase yesterday's failures.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
Do not wait for ideal circumstances nor for the best opportunities; they will never come.
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.
When you have the opportunity, you strike.
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.
We see the brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen.
Rainer, Maria Rilke
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
You create your opportunities by asking for them.
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.
Take a lesson from the mosquito. She never waits for an opening -- she makes one.
When the flower blooms, the bees come uninvited.
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
The door of opportunity is wide open if you are prepared.
