Best Quotes about Opportunity
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.
He's got the whole world at his feet and he can't find his shoes.
Today's opportunities erase yesterday's failures.
Little opportunities should be improved.
People wait for opportunity to come along...yet it is there every morning.
Menace, Dennis the
It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
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.
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
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
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.

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
One can present people with opportunities. One cannot make them equal to them.
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.
A sign on the door of Opportunity reads Push.
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.
The same fence that shuts others out shuts you in.
Copeland, William Taylor
When fortune knocks open the door.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
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
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.
Opportunities neglected can never be recovered.
We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
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.
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.
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
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.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces
Opportunity is no more than a better way of serving and providing for humanities needs.
Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity that was at hand.
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.
The back of one door is the face of another.
We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.
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.
Opportunities comes from knocking on doors until they open.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
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 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
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
The door of opportunity is wide open if you are prepared.
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.
