Build Quotations

If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door. - Milton Berle
If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.
Milton Berle

Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday's success or put its failures behind and start over again. That's the way life is, with a new game every day, and that's the way baseball is.
Bob Feller

You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.
Johnny Cash

Douglas MacArthur

You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.
