Opportunity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Opportunity

1.
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
Hoffer, Eric

2.
When fortune knocks open the door.
Proverb, German

3.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
Rowland, Helen

4.
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

5.
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.

6.
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

Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
Hendricks, Howard

The right man is the one that seizes the moment.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

9.
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.
Downs, Lawrence

10.
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

Proverb

14.
Every wall is a door.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson

Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming.
Branson, Richard

17.
If you see the bandwagon you've missed it.
Phillips, James

18.
Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.
Henry J. Kaiser

19.
The back of one door is the face of another.
Proverb

20.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
Gracian, Baltasar

21.
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.
Steichen, Edward

22.
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.

23.
Little opportunities should be improved.
FeNelon, Francois

24.
Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us daily.
Koch, Sally

25.
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.
Rockerfeller, David

26.
Opportunities are never lost; they are taken by others.

27.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
Nightingale, Earl

28.
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
Tina Fey

When the sun rises, it rises for everyone.
Proverb, Cuban

30.
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson

31.
We must open the doors of opportunity.
Johnson, Lyndon B.

32.
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

33.
Opportunity multiply as they are seized.
Wicker, John

34.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
Collier, Robert

35.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

36.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
Publilius Syrus

37.
Always have your hook baited, in the pool you least think, there will be a fish.
Ovid

38.
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.

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

Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
Proverb, Arabian

48.
The same fence that shuts others out shuts you in.
Copeland, William Taylor

49.
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.
L'Amour, Louis

50.
