Best Quotes about Opportunity
Remember, a chip on the shoulder is a sure sign of 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
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
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.
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
Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us daily.
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.
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.
We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
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.
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.
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces
Do you see difficulties in every opportunity or opportunities in every difficulty?
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
There is no future in any job. The future lies in the man who holds the job.
Crane, George W.
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.
You can't wait for the phone to ring. You have to ring them.
Grade, Lord Lew
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
Opportunity rarely knocks on your door. Knock rather on opportunity's door if you ardently wish to enter.
Forbes, B. C.
Let us my friends snatch our opportunity from the passing day.
Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
Opportunity often comes in disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
Today's opportunities erase yesterday's failures.
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.
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.
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
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.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Edison, Thomas A.
Little opportunities should be improved.
The right man is the one that seizes the moment.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
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.
Even a blind dog can find a bone every so often.
Do not wait for ideal circumstances nor for the best opportunities; they will never come.
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
Always have your hook baited, in the pool you least think, there will be a fish.
Men never moan over the opportunities lost to do good, only the opportunities to be bad.
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.
Catch a man a fish, and you can sell it to him. Teach a man to fish, and you ruin a wonderful business opportunity.
You must make your own opportunities.
Gough, John B.
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.
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.
He's got the whole world at his feet and he can't find his shoes.
Where one door closes, another opens.
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.
Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity.
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 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.
Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming.
