Best Quotes about Opportunity
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
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
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.
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
He's got the whole world at his feet and he can't find his shoes.
It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
Opportunity multiply as they are seized.
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.
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
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Edison, Thomas A.
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
Opportunities are never lost; they are taken by others.
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.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
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.
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
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
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.
There is only one optimist. He has been here since man has been on this earth, and that is man himself. If we hadn't had such a magnificent optimism to carry us through all these things, we wouldn't be here. We have survived it on our optimism.
When the sun rises, it rises for everyone.
Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming.
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?
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
Opportunities are everywhere.The recession might be drawing to a close, but its continuing legacy is employers' reliance on short-term staff.There may be fewer jobs for life, but there are more jobs in a lifetime.
If you see the bandwagon you've missed it.
There is no future in any job. The future lies in the man who holds the job.
Crane, George W.
Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us daily.
Written in Chinese, the word crisis, is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represent opportunity.
Kennedy, John F.

Brown Jr., H. Jackson
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.

Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity.
When fortune knocks open the door.
Even a blind dog can find a bone every so often.
Why are there so many people who never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity?
Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of wood higher up.
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
The right man is the one that seizes the moment.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew
The back of one door is the face of another.
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.
Today's opportunities erase yesterday's failures.
Opportunity always looks better going than coming.
Great investment opportunities come around when excellent companies are surrounded by unusual circumstances that cause the stock to be misappraised.
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.
