Hi Everyone! Almost the magic hour of midnight on this Sunday night here
in Orlando. As I walk to the Sandbox, I am thinking how rewarded I am to
know you, how blessed and grateful I am to have you in my life. I'm rewarded
daily through our ActiveRain connection. through your posts, sharing,
comments, advice, ideas and suggestions. Thank you. The following is an
example; I received last week from a member -- damn, she's a good writer,
too! (I am lucky she comes to my post and she's got a terrific sense of humor).
It was in response to a Milton Berle quote I posted:
"If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door."
Candice A. Donofrio -
Bullhead City/ Fort Mohave, AZ,
"...in case of emergency, draw a door
and knock three times."
('Handbook for the Recently Deceased'-
Movie - Beetlejuice)
"If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door." ~Milton Berle
"Opportunities will come and go, but if you do nothing about them, so will
you." ~Richie Norton
"The door of opportunity is always open, but nobody bothers to push the
door open. They just get tired out by knocking and then they leave."
"Some beautiful opportunities are like birds. They may be there but only
till the next second!" ~Mehmet Murat ildan
"I was seldom able to see an opportunity until it had ceased to be one."
"Learn to be a successful net-worker and you will never be without
pending opportunities." ~Germany Kent
"A problem is opportunity shouting at you!" ~T Jay Taylor
"Sometimes we can make our own opportunities, sometimes we can see
them coming, but more often than not they are like pop quizzes, they are
sprung on you like a challenge to test your skills, almost like a dare to see
if you can take that leap of faith to make whatever it is a success. Wait
too long, and an excellent opportunity might slip away."
"Opportunity does not waste time with those who are unprepared."
"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls
and looks like work." ~Thomas A. Edison
"When opportunity knocks, a pessimist dials 911;
When opportunity knocks, an optimist sets the table."
"Doors of opportunity are always open around you--you just have to
find them." ~Debasish Mridha MD
"If you're reading this, I hope God opens incredible doors for your life
this year. Greatness is upon you. You must believe it though."
