When one door shuts, another opens

When one door shuts, another opens.

Prov. When you lose one opportunity, you often find a different one. Jane: I just found out I'm failing two classes. I'll never get into college with grades like this. Jill: Well, maybe you'll find something better than college. When one door shuts, another opens.
