Opportunity Quotes
Showing: 21 - 30 Opportunity Quotes of 45
Remember that you ought to behave in life as you would at a banquet. As something is being passed around, it comes to you; stretch out your hand, take a portion of it politely. It passes on; do not detain it. Or it has not come to you yet; do not project your desire to meet it, but wait until it comes in front of you.

Know thine opportunity.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
If opportunity came disguised as temptation, one knock would be enough.
If a window of opportunity appears, don't pull down the shade.
If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.
Every exit is an entrance somewhere else.
Once you have missed the first buttonhole, you'll never manage to button up.
