Luck quotes
Luck
Luck is the idol of the idle.

- Proverb
Success is simply a matter of luck. Ask any failure.

- Wilson, Earl
I love eulogies. They are the most moving kind of speech because they attempt to pluck meaning from the fog, and on short order, when the emotions are still ragged and raw and susceptible to leaps.

- Noonan, Peggy
I think when I work 14 hours a day, seven days a week, I get lucky.

- Armand Hammer
A lucky man is rarer than a white crow.

- Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
Someone receives a promotion, gets an important assignment, makes a major discovery, or moves into the president's office. He's lucky, an envious person remarks. He gets the breaks; they're always in his favor. In reality, luck or the breaks of life had little or nothing to do with it. So-called luck usually is found at the exact point where preparation meets opportunity. For a time, an individual may get ahead by pull, but eventually someone with push will displace him. Success is not due to a fortuitous concourse of stars at our birth, but to a steady trail of sparks from the grindstone of hard work each day.

- Hildebrand, Kenneth
The bad end unhappily, the good unluckily. That is what tragedy means.

- Stoppard, Tom
Scratch a Yale man with both hands and you'll be lucky to find a coast-guard. Usually you find nothing at all.

Fortune cannot be flattered by such fetish worship. But she can be wooed and won by hard work.

- Beaverbrook, Lord
Orthodox medicine has not found an answer to your complaint. However, luckily for you, I happen to be a quack.

- Richter cartoon caption
Let no man be called happy before his death. Till then, he is not happy, only lucky.

- Solon
Luck is the residue of design.

- Branch Rickey
The artist is extremely lucky who is presented with the worst possible ordeal which will not actually kill him. At that point, he's in business.

- Berryman, John
I was lucky enough to see with my own eyes the recent stock-market crash, where they lost several million dollars, a rabble of dead money that went sliding off into the sea. Never as then, amid suicides, hysteria, and groups of fainting people, have I felt the sensation of real death, death without hope, death that is nothing but rottenness, for the spectacle was terrifying but devoid of greatness... I felt something like a divine urge to bombard that whole canyon of shadow, where ambulances collected suicides whose hands were full of rings.

- Lorca, Federico Garcia
TELESCOPE, n. A device having a relation to the eye similar to that of the telephone to the ear, enabling distant objects to plague us with a multitude of needless details. Luckily it is unprovided with a bell summoning us to the sacrifice.

- Ambrose Bierce
Why is it no one ever sent me yet one perfect limousine, do you suppose? Ah no, it's always just my luck to get one perfect rose.

- Parker, Dorothy
The harder you work, the luckier you get.

- Player, Gary
Every political system is an accumulation of habits, customs, prejudices, and principles that have survived a long process of trial and error and of ceaseless response to changing circumstances. If the system works well on the whole, it is a lucky accident -- the luckiest, indeed, that can befall a society.

- Banfield, Edward C.
Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity.

- Winfrey, Oprah
I think people that have a brother or sister don't realize how lucky they are. Sure, they fight a lot, but to know that there's always somebody there, somebody that's family.

- Trey Parker and Matt Stone
