Opportunity Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Opportunity

8.
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

9.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.

10.
Every wall is a door.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

11.
We trained hard ... but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganized.

Arbiter, Gauis Petronius

12.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
Collier, Robert

13.
There is no future in any job. The future lies in the man who holds the job.
Crane, George W.

14.
Written in Chinese, the word crisis, is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represent opportunity.
Kennedy, John F.

15.
Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of wood higher up.
Young, Brigham

16.
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson

17.
Opportunities comes from knocking on doors until they open.

18.
There is far more opportunity than there is ability.
Edison, Thomas A.

19.
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
Herold, Don

20.
Be ready when opportunity comes. Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet.
Chapin Jr., Roy D.

21.
Arrange Whatever pieces come your way.
Woolf, Virginia

22.

23.
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces

Mandino, Og

33.
We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
Sharp, Tom

Benington, Lucy

35.
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.
