That was the big thing when I was growing up, singing on the radio. The extent of my dream was to sing on the radio station in Memphis. Even when I got out of the Air Force in 1954, I came right back to Memphis and started knocking on doors at the radio station.
If oppurtunity doesn't knock, build a door.
Sometimes the opportunity only knocks once. Be prepared, be open, be brave.
In my room as a kid... I'd play a fighter and get knocked to the floor and come back to win.
Learn to listen. Opportunity could be knocking at your door very softly.
When fortune knocks open the door.

America is a large, friendly dog in a very small room.
Every time it wags its tail it knocks over a chair.
The school of hard knocks is an accelerated curriculum.
It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get up.
