Best Quotes about Opportunity
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
This American system of ours. call it Americanism, call it capitalism, call it what you like, gives to each and every one of us a great opportunity if we only seize it with both hands and make the most of it.
Even a blind dog can find a bone every so often.
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.
The back of one door is the face of another.
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.
Some people expect the door of opportunity to be opened with an electric eye.
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.
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
We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
The same fence that shuts others out shuts you in.
Copeland, William Taylor
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.
Opportunity always looks better going than coming.
A chip on the shoulder indicates that there is wood higher up.
The lack of opportunity is ever the excuse of a weak, vacillating mind. Opportunities! Every life is full of them. Every newspaper article is an opportunity. Every client is an opportunity. Every sermon is an opportunity. Every business transaction is an opportunity -- an opportunity to be polite -- an opportunity to be manly -- an opportunity to be honest -- an opportunity to make friends.
Marden, Orison Swett
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
Forbes, B. C.
Where one door closes, another opens.
Enlarge the opportunity and the person will expand to fill it
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
Today's opportunities erase yesterday's failures.
Arrange Whatever pieces come your way.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
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.
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
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.
Make the iron hot by striking it.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.
As fast as each opportunity presents itself, use it! No matter how tiny an opportunity it may be, use it!
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.
If a window of opportunity appears, don't pull down the shade.
Peters, Thomas J.
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.
You must make your own opportunities.
Gough, John B.
Opportunities neglected can never be recovered.
Start where you are. Distant fields always look greener, but opportunity lies right where you are. Take advantage of every opportunity of service.
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.
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
You create your opportunities by asking for them.
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.
One can present people with opportunities. One cannot make them equal to them.
We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
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.
Do you see difficulties in every opportunity or opportunities in every difficulty?
Do not wait for ideal circumstances nor for the best opportunities; they will never come.
Let us my friends snatch our opportunity from the passing day.
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.
The right man is the one that seizes the moment.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Emerson, Ralph Waldo
