All things are ready, if our mind be so.
William Shakespeare (Henry V)
It is not often that a man can make opportunities for himself. But he can put himself in such shape that when or if the opportunities come he is ready.
Theodore Roosevelt
The secret of success in life is for a man to be ready for his opportunity when it comes.
Benjamin Disraeli
Opportunity doesn't make appointments, you have to be ready when it arrives.
Tim Fargo
Preparation doesn't assures victory, it assures confidence.
Amit Kalantri (Wealth of Words)
I feel as though I have leapt off this massive cliff and I am still building my wings… Everyone just assumes I know how to fly, but I am pretty sure I am only falling gracefully and hoping to miss the ground.
Thomm Quackenbush (Flies to Wanton Boys)
Preparedness carries the day.
F.C. Yee (The Rise of Kyoshi (The Kyoshi Novels, #1))
There is no such thing as weak competition; it grows all the time.
Nabil N. Jamal
Your responsibility to be ready for the fight, never ends.
James Yeager
The hardest bones, containing the richest marrow, can be conquered only by a united crushing of all the teeth of all dogs. That of course is only a figure of speech and exaggerated; if all teeth were but ready they would not need even to bite, the bones would crack themselves and the marrow would be freely accessible to the feeblest of dogs. If I remain faithful to this metaphor, then the goal of my aims, my questions, my inquiries, appears monstrous, it is true. For I want to compel all dogs thus to assemble together, I want the bones to crack open under the pressure of their collective preparedness, and then I want to dismiss them to the ordinary life they love, while all by myself, quite alone, I lap up the marrow. That sounds monstrous, almost as if I wanted to feed on the marrow, not merely of bone, but of the whole canine race itself. But it is only a metaphor. The marrow that I am discussing here is no food; on the contrary, it is a poison.
Franz Kafka (Investigations of a Dog)
Part of knowing how to be prepared comes from being self-aware—being able to anticipate what you’ll need (or screw up) and planning accordingly. I know I am rarely, if ever, the smartest person in the room. And that’s totally OK. What’s not OK is (1) not recognizing that and (2) not coming ready to participate in a meaningful way.
Alyssa Mastromonaco (Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?: And Other Questions You Should Have Answers to When You Work in the White House)
Our Duty is to Be Ready.
Austin Chambers (Tahoma’s Hammer (Cascadia Fallen Trilogy, #1))
...Teachings are given to different men under different circumstances and in different times... [but] ...the Lord is the same yesterday, today and forever. If a parent commands a little child not to play with matches, and then commands a teenager to light the campfire, is this a contradiction? It's only a question of preparedness - one is ready and one is not.
Chris Heimerdinger (Gadiantons and the Silver Sword (Tennis Shoes, #2))
Some famous person said, "Success is 50 percent luck and 50 percent preparedness for that luck." I think that's a lot of it. It's being ready to take advantage of opportunities when they arise.
Jessica Livingston (Founders at Work: Stories of Startups' Early Days)
It’s not about “letting it go.” It’s about letting it in. It’s about letting it deep. It’s about letting it through. It’s about being true to your feelings. It’s about giving your experiences the attention they deserve. And that may take a moment, or it may take years. The trick is not to shame your need to hold on to what has yet to be resolved. “Let it go” is the mantra of the self-avoidant, feigning resolution because they lack the courage or the preparedness to face their feelings. Let’s not play that game. Let’s let things in and through, until they are fully and truly ready to shift. Let’s let it grow into the transformation at its heart. We write our story by fully living it. Not by “letting it go” before its time. You are the sign you have been waiting for.
Jeff Brown (Hearticulations: On Love, Friendship, and Healing)
Teen age is the period for young folks to be tender and be thought or be trivial and embrace temptation. It is a season for them to be empowered or endangered, encouraged or embattled dependent on their choices. It is a stage for them to either be natured or be naughty dependent on their readiness and preparedness. It is an era where they are to adore God or admire evil with their all in all. A moment of grace and glory or guilt and gory for their families and society as a result of impacts they received; and timeless celebration of Eternal God or enduring shame for generations on based on their clear choices. Whichever path a teenage choices have its blessings and rewards or its dangers and subsequent sufferings. Through our teens we aged either into foolish folks or wise and responsible adults.
What stops people from thinking ahead and getting ready for the possibility of crisis? The majority of people surely understand the importance of preparation…
Christopher Manske (The Prepared Investor: How to Prevent the Next Crisis from Affecting Your Financial Independence)
The differences between these two types of adaptation are profoundly important for applied physical performance in a non-sport-specific situation. For example, a deployed soldier in a battlefield scenario must often depend on his physical preparedness to stay alive. Strength has been universally reported to be a more valuable capacity than the ability to run 5 miles in 30 minutes, because at the time of this writing our combat troops are mechanized. They don’t have to walk or run into combat, since we have machines for that now. If a limited endurance capacity is necessary – and some could successfully argue that it is – that capacity can be readily developed in a few weeks prior to deployment, while a much more valuable strength adaptation takes many months or years to acquire, is more important to combat readiness than endurance, and is a much more persistent adaptation in the face of forced detraining than the ability to run, which you’re not going to use on the battlefield anyway. The stubborn insistence on an endurance-based preparation for combat readiness is an unfortunate anachronism that should be reevaluated soon.
Mark Rippetoe (Practical Programming for Strength Training)
To know in order not to be disoriented, To be able to seize the sense of the event, To avoid a mental anarchy, and to act effectively. - On Being Prepared
Lamine Pearlheart (To Life from the Shadows)
Be ready; now is the beginning of happenings.
Robert E. Howard (Swords of Shahrazar)
GOD'S Order Is: Readiness or preparedness. Armed for combat. When Abraham went to rescue Lot, he didn't go alone nor did he try to negotiate with his enemies. He prepared himself for battle and he took revenge and his nephew from the hands of the Mesopotamians. He brought 318 trained men and they attacked at night. (strategy) He didn't run out of the bushes in mid day swinging and screaming, “Give me back my nephew!” He got himself in order and Satan cannot override order!!! Spirit
Tiffany Buckner-Kameni (The Spirit of Heaviness- And All Its Cousins)
