Best Quotes about Opportunity
A sign on the door of Opportunity reads Push.
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
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
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.
Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.
Henry J. Kaiser
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.
There is far more opportunity than there is ability.
Edison, Thomas A.
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
We see the brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen.
Rainer, Maria Rilke
He's got the whole world at his feet and he can't find his shoes.
One must pass through the circumference of time before arriving at the center of opportunity.
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.
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.
We must open the doors of opportunity.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
The right man is the one that seizes the moment.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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
Do you see difficulties in every opportunity or opportunities in every difficulty?
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
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.
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.
Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
Forbes, B. C.
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
People wait for opportunity to come along...yet it is there every morning.
Menace, Dennis the
Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Edison, Thomas A.
Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us daily.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
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.
Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
When fortune knocks open the door.
Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity that was at hand.
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.
Every wall is a door.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
There is no future in any job. The future lies in the man who holds the job.
Crane, George W.
Today's opportunities erase yesterday's failures.
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.
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces
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.
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
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
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.
When you have the opportunity, you strike.
Right now a moment is fleeting by! Capture its reality in paint! To do that we must put all else out of our minds. We must become that moment, make ourselves a sensitive recording plate. give the image of what we actually see, forgetting everything that has been seen before our time.
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
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.
The back of one door is the face of another.
If a window of opportunity appears, don't pull down the shade.
Peters, Thomas J.
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
Little opportunities should be improved.
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.
