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.
Best Quotes about Opportunity
When the sun rises, it rises for everyone.
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
Opportunities comes from knocking on doors until they open.
We see the brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen.
Rainer, Maria Rilke
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.
Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
Every wall is a door.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
When you have the opportunity, you strike.
Some people steer by the light from the stars, while others steer by the lights from each passing ship.

Gough, John B.
Start where you are. Distant fields always look greener, but opportunity lies right where you are. Take advantage of every opportunity of service.
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
There is far more opportunity than there is ability.
Edison, Thomas A.
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.
Opportunity is lost by deliberation.
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
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
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.

Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
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.
Every minute starts an hour and every minute is a new opportunity. Each time the clock ticks you have a chance to start over, to say, do, think, or feel something in such a way that you and the world are better for it.
You create your opportunities by asking for them.
Written in Chinese, the word crisis, is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represent opportunity.
Kennedy, John F.
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
Opportunity multiply as they are seized.
We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
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.
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
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.
Always have your hook baited, in the pool you least think, there will be a fish.
If a window of opportunity appears, don't pull down the shade.
Peters, Thomas J.
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.
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
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.
The back of one door is the face of another.
There will always be a frontier where there is an open mind and a willing hand.
Kettering, Charles F.
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.
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
Do you see difficulties in every opportunity or opportunities in every difficulty?
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
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.
One can present people with opportunities. One cannot make them equal to them.
He's got the whole world at his feet and he can't find his shoes.
