Best Quotes about Opportunity

1.
Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity.
Flanders, Alberta

2.
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

3.
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.
Benington, Lucy

4.
There is far more opportunity than there is ability.
Edison, Thomas A.

5.
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.

6.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
Lee, Bruce

7.
Let us my friends snatch our opportunity from the passing day.
Horace

8.
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

9.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
Nightingale, Earl

10.
We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
Sharp, Tom

11.
Opportunities comes from knocking on doors until they open.

12.
Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity that was at hand.
Barton, Bruce

13.
Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting -- a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

14.
Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
Forbes, B. C.

15.
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

16.
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

17.
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

18.
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.

19.
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
Nightingale, Earl

20.
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.
Meir, Golda

21.
Opportunity always looks better going than coming.

22.
Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming.
Branson, Richard

23.
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

24.
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.

25.
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
Hoffer, Eric

26.
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
Syrus, Publilius

27.
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.

28.
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
Proverb, Greek

29.
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
Herold, Don

30.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

31.
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

32.
There will always be a frontier where there is an open mind and a willing hand.
Kettering, Charles F.

33.
Written in Chinese, the word crisis, is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represent opportunity.
Kennedy, John F.

34.

Ellen Metcalf

Even a blind dog can find a bone every so often.
Sayle, Alexi

Coolidge, Rita

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

Estefan, Gloria
