Best Quotes about Opportunity
Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of wood higher up.
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
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.
Wideman, John Edgar
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces
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
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.
Opportunities are never lost; they are taken by others.
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.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
Catch a man a fish, and you can sell it to him. Teach a man to fish, and you ruin a wonderful business opportunity.
Opportunities comes from knocking on doors until they open.
If you view all the things that happen to you, both good and bad, as opportunities, then you operate out of a higher level of consciousness.
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.
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
Some say opportunity knocks only once, That is not true. Opportunity knocks all the time, but you have to be ready for it. If the chance comes, you must have the equipment to take advantage of it.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
One can present people with opportunities. One cannot make them equal to them.
A sign on the door of Opportunity reads Push.
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
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
The door of opportunity is wide open if you are prepared.
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
When one door closes, another opens. But we often look so regretfully upon the closed door that we don't see the one that has opened for us.
Opportunity creates desire.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an 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.
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
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
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 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
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
Some people steer by the light from the stars, while others steer by the lights from each passing ship.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
Opportunity always looks better going than coming.
Take a lesson from the mosquito. She never waits for an opening -- she makes one.
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
You do things when the opportunities come along. I've had periods in my life when I've had a bundle of ideas come along, and I've had long dry spells. If I get an idea next week, I'll do something. If not, I won't do a damn thing.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
There is no future in any job. The future lies in the man who holds the job.
Crane, George W.
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.
Men who are resolved to find a way for themselves will always find opportunities enough; and if they do not find them, they will make them.
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
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.
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.
If you see the bandwagon you've missed it.
Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
