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

Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity that was at hand.
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
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
Opportunity always looks better going than coming.
Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of wood higher up.
Opportunity creates desire.
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
Why are there so many people who never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity?

Marden, Orison Swett

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
You create your opportunities by asking for them.
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.
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.
Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
Forbes, B. C.
Opportunity multiply as they are seized.
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 same fence that shuts others out shuts you in.
Copeland, William Taylor
Some people steer by the light from the stars, while others steer by the lights from each passing ship.
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
There is no future in any job. The future lies in the man who holds the job.
Crane, George W.
Arrange Whatever pieces come your way.
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
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.
If a window of opportunity appears, don't pull down the shade.
Peters, Thomas J.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.
When fortune knocks open the door.
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
People wait for opportunity to come along...yet it is there every morning.
Menace, Dennis the
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
Opportunities are never lost; they are taken by others.
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.
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.
Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
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.
Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.
Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity.
Enlarge the opportunity and the person will expand to fill it
Opportunities, many times, are so small that we glimpse them not and yet they are often the seeds of great enterprises. Opportunities are also everywhere and so you must always let your hook be hanging. When you least expect it, a great fish will swim by.
Let us my friends snatch our opportunity from the passing day.
