Best Quotes about Opportunity
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.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Edison, Thomas A.
A chip on the shoulder indicates that there is wood higher up.
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
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
When the flower blooms, the bees come uninvited.
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.
A sign on the door of Opportunity reads Push.
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.
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.
Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming.
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.
Do you see difficulties in every opportunity or opportunities in every difficulty?
We must open the doors of opportunity.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
Opportunity multiply as they are seized.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
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.
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.
Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.
Henry J. Kaiser
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
Do not wait for ideal circumstances nor for the best opportunities; they will never come.
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
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
Little opportunities should be improved.
Always have your hook baited, in the pool you least think, there will be a fish.
Make the iron hot by striking it.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
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
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 same fence that shuts others out shuts you in.
Copeland, William Taylor
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
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.
There will always be a frontier where there is an open mind and a willing hand.
Kettering, Charles F.
Arrange Whatever pieces come your way.
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.
John F. Kennedy
Opportunity is no more than a better way of serving and providing for humanities needs.
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.
Opportunities are never lost; they are taken by others.
Written in Chinese, the word crisis, is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represent opportunity.
Kennedy, John F.
Opportunities comes from knocking on doors until they open.
We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
