Best Quotes about Opportunity
Do not wait for ideal circumstances nor for the best opportunities; they will never come.
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
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.
A sign on the door of Opportunity reads Push.
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
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
Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity that was at hand.
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
Opportunity always looks better going than coming.
When the flower blooms, the bees come uninvited.
Many of us spend our lives searching for success when it is usually so close that we can reach out and touch it.
Conwell, Russel H.
Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
Forbes, B. C.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
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
Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
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.
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.
You can't always wait for the guys at the top. Every manager at every level in the organization has an opportunity, big or small, to do something. Every manager's got some sphere of autonomy. Don't pass the buck up the line.
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
When the sun rises, it rises for everyone.
Make the iron hot by striking it.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
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.
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.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.
Written in Chinese, the word crisis, is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represent opportunity.
Kennedy, John F.
Subtract from the great man all that he owes to opportunity, all that he owes to chance, and all that he gained by the wisdom of his friends and the folly of his enemies, and the giant will often be seen to be a pygmy.
Colton, Charles Caleb
There is far more opportunity than there is ability.
Edison, Thomas A.
Great investment opportunities come around when excellent companies are surrounded by unusual circumstances that cause the stock to be misappraised.
Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming.
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.
Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of wood higher up.
Where one door closes, another opens.
Take a lesson from the mosquito. She never waits for an opening -- she makes one.
When you have the opportunity, you strike.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.
Always have your hook baited, in the pool you least think, there will be a fish.
If you see the bandwagon you've missed it.
You have to recognize when the right place and the right time fuse and take advantage of that opportunity. There are plenty of opportunities out there. You can't sit back and wait.
Start where you are. Distant fields always look greener, but opportunity lies right where you are. Take advantage of every opportunity of service.
Talent alone won't make you a success. Neither will being in the right place at the right time, unless you are ready. The most important question is: Are your ready?
Today's opportunities erase yesterday's failures.
