Best Quotes about Opportunity
Opportunities are never lost; they are taken by others.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
Do you see difficulties in every opportunity or opportunities in every difficulty?
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
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
Enlarge the opportunity and the person will expand to fill it
You create your opportunities by asking for them.
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.

When you feel that you have reached the end and that you cannot go one step further, when life seems to be drained of all purpose: What a wonderful opportunity o start all over again, to turn over a new page.
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.
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
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
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, 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.
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
The door of opportunity is wide open if you are prepared.
Catch a man a fish, and you can sell it to him. Teach a man to fish, and you ruin a wonderful business opportunity.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.

Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
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.
We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.
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.
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
Little opportunities should be improved.
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
Do not wait for ideal circumstances nor for the best opportunities; they will never come.
A sign on the door of Opportunity reads Push.
The same fence that shuts others out shuts you in.
Copeland, William Taylor

Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.
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.

Edison, Thomas A.
