Best Quotes about Opportunity
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.
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
Let us my friends snatch our opportunity from the passing day.
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
When the sun rises, it rises for everyone.
There will always be a frontier where there is an open mind and a willing hand.
Kettering, Charles F.
We must not only strike the iron while it is hot, we must strike it until it is hot.
Little opportunities should be improved.
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 multiply as they are seized.
Every wall is a door.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
One of the earliest lessons I learned as a child was that if you looked away from something, it might not be there when you looked back.
Wideman, John Edgar
If you see the bandwagon you've missed it.
A wise man doesn't just wait for the right opportunity, He creates the right opportunity.
When you have the opportunity, you strike.
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.
To recognize an opportunity and use it is the difference between success and failure.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.
Opportunity always looks better going than coming.
Opportunities are never lost; they are taken by others.
Opportunity is no more than a better way of serving and providing for humanities needs.
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.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
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.
Do not wait for ideal circumstances nor for the best opportunities; they will never come.
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
Take a lesson from the mosquito. She never waits for an opening -- she makes one.
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.
He's got the whole world at his feet and he can't find his shoes.
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.
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.
Catch a man a fish, and you can sell it to him. Teach a man to fish, and you ruin a wonderful business opportunity.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
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
There is far more opportunity than there is ability.
Edison, Thomas A.
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
Don't ever slam a door, you might want to go back.
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.
Opportunities comes from knocking on doors until they open.
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
Be an opener of doors.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Written in Chinese, the word crisis, is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represent opportunity.
Kennedy, John 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.
When fortune knocks open the door.
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
Sometimes only a change of viewpoint is needed to convert a tiresome duty into an interesting opportunity.
The door of opportunity is wide open if you are prepared.
You create your opportunities by asking for them.
It sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
