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
Opportunity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Opportunity

1.
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.
Maltz, Maxwell

2.
He's got the whole world at his feet and he can't find his shoes.
Williamson, John

Today's opportunities erase yesterday's failures.
Brown, Gene

4.
Little opportunities should be improved.
FeNelon, Francois

5.
People wait for opportunity to come along...yet it is there every morning.
Menace, Dennis the

6.
It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
YoungJr., Whitney

7.
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.
Thatcher, Margaret

8.
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

9.
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
Syrus, Publilius

10.
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
Schucman, Helen

11.
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

12.
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
Nightingale, Earl

13.
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.
Guthrie, Woody

14.
Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of wood higher up.
Young, Brigham

You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew

One can present people with opportunities. One cannot make them equal to them.
Lehmann, Rosamond

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.
Sugarman, Joseph

If a window of opportunity appears, don't pull down the shade.
Peters, Thomas J.

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.

21.
The same fence that shuts others out shuts you in.
Copeland, William Taylor

22.
When fortune knocks open the door.
Proverb, German

23.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
Gracian, Baltasar

24.
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

25.
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.

26.
Opportunities neglected can never be recovered.
Proverb

We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
Sharp, Tom

28.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
Lee, Bruce

29.
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

30.
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.
Estefan, Gloria

31.
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
Hoffer, Eric

32.
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
Hendricks, Howard

33.
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson

34.
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.

35.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
Collier, Robert

36.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
Nightingale, Earl

37.
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces

38.
Opportunity is no more than a better way of serving and providing for humanities needs.

39.
Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity that was at hand.
Barton, Bruce

40.
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

41.

Allen, James

47.
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

48.
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
Jackson, Jesse

50.
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.
