Best Quotes about Opportunity
Make the iron hot by striking it.
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.
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.
Do you see difficulties in every opportunity or opportunities in every difficulty?
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.
Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity that was at hand.
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.
Too often the opportunity knocks, but by the time you push back the chain, push back the bolt, unhook the locks and shut off the burglar alarm, it's too late.
Opportunity is no more than a better way of serving and providing for humanities needs.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
We must open the doors of opportunity.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
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.
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.
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
The same fence that shuts others out shuts you in.
Copeland, William Taylor
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
Catch a man a fish, and you can sell it to him. Teach a man to fish, and you ruin a wonderful business opportunity.
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.
God supplies us with the opportunity, but He cannot take advantage of it for us.
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.
Little opportunities should be improved.
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or direction
Best of Bits and Pieces
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.
Even a blind dog can find a bone every so often.
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.
Do not wait for ideal circumstances nor for the best opportunities; they will never come.
One can present people with opportunities. One cannot make them equal to them.
It's better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
People wait for opportunity to come along...yet it is there every morning.
Menace, Dennis the
Opportunities comes from knocking on doors until they open.
A sign on the door of Opportunity reads Push.
If a window of opportunity appears, don't pull down the shade.
Peters, Thomas J.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Edison, Thomas A.
Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming.
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 door of opportunity is wide open if you are prepared.
He's got the whole world at his feet and he can't find his shoes.
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
Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us daily.
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
Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.
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.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
Enlarge the opportunity and the person will expand to fill it
Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, ad the neglected opportunity.
Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.
Henry J. Kaiser
Let us my friends snatch our opportunity from the passing day.
