My mom used to tell me that the most valuable thing she owned was her library card. We were poor, but that's not what she was talking about. My mom knew that education opened doors and opened minds.
No matter when or where, always bring your 'A' game, because you never know when it will open doors for you.

The lips of the wise are as the doors of a cabinet; no sooner are they opened, but treasures are poured out before thee.
There is this strange fog of being a young man that I would refer to as soft time. Time does not go forward there. It's a series of doors that kind of wind back into one another, like a series of doors in the upper floor of a house. You revisit the same lessons over and over again, or you choose to ignore them.
There is going to be a hundred thousand doors slammed in your face before one opens, so feel ok about taking rejection.
If you think the President was right to open the doors of American opportunity to young immigrants brought here as children who want to go to college or serve in the military, you should vote for Barack Obama.
William J. Clinton
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
I am, by nature, an honest person. I wear my emotions on my sleeve. There is no 'behind closed doors' with me.
Stand-up can take you in so many different places, man. So many doors can be opened up from stand-up comedy, and the first one that was opened up for me was acting. But you can go from acting to being a TV personality to being a radio personality to being a writer to being a producer, to just being a visionary, to voiceover work.
I'll work overtime to open the doors of opportunity to industry and commerce.
For a person who grew up in the '30s and '40s in the segregated South, with so many doors closed without explanation to me, libraries and books said, 'Here I am, read me.' Over time I have learned I am at my best around books.
Men shut their doors against a setting sun.
Theater in New York is nearer to the street. In London, you have to go deep into the building, usually, to reach the place where theater happens. On Broadway, only the fire doors separate you from the sidewalk, and you're lucky if the sound of a police car doesn't rip the envelope twice a night.
I was often looked at as a leper by kids at school because I was a Jehovah's Witness. They didn't like it - you were 'weird'. And on Saturday mornings, you'd be knocking at their doors. I remember standing there with my mum and dad, thinking, 'Oh my God, I know whose door this is, and I'll have to see them on Monday.' It was terrible.
I think my first album opened a lot of doors for me to push the freedom of speech to the limit.

Nature is by and large to be found out of doors, a location where, it cannot be argued, there are never enough comfortable chairs.
My mother, a very eclectic listener, had the first Doors album and gave it to me when I expressed interest in the band. It was one of the first records I ever had. As the years passed, the babysitters who used to look after me would bring their Doors albums to the apartment, and that's how I got to hear their later work.
In the Church, and in the journey of faith, women have had and still have a special role in opening doors to the Lord.

You would be amazed at the number of doors a Nobel Prize opens.
Kindness is a passport that opens doors and fashions friends. It softens hearts and molds relationships that can last lifetimes.
