Luck quotes
Luck
There is no such thing as luck. There is only adequate or inadequate preparation to cope with a statistical universe.

- Robert Heinlein
RESPONSIBILITY, n. A detachable burden easily shifted to the shoulders of God, Fate, Fortune, Luck or one's neighbor. In the days of astrology it was customary to unload it upon a star. Alas, things ain't what we should see If Eve had let that apple be; And many a feller which had ought To set with monarchses of thought, Or play some rosy little game With battle-chaps on fields of fame, Is downed by his unlucky star And hollers: "Peanuts! -- here you are!" "The Sturdy Beggar"

- Ambrose Bierce
The principle feature of American liberalism is sanctimoniousness. By loudly denouncing all bad things -- war and hunger and date rape -- liberals testify to their own terrific goodness. More important, they promote themselves to membership in a self-selecting elite of those who care deeply about such things. It's a kind of natural aristocracy, and the wonderful thing about this aristocracy is that you don't have to be brave, smart, strong or even lucky to join it, you just have to be liberal.

- O'Rourke, P. J.
To get it right, be born with luck or else make it. Never give up. Get the knack of getting people to help you and also pitch in yourself. A little money helps, but what really gets it right is to never -- I repeat -- never under any conditions face the facts.

- Gordon, Ruth
A little government and a little luck are necessary in life, but only a fool trusts either of them.

- P. J. O'Rourke
Don't you know by now, luck don't lead to anything or why you keep on moving

- Winwood, Steve
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
Some people are so fond of ill-luck that they run half- way to meet it.

- Douglas Gerald
Whoever has the luck to be born a character can laugh even at death. Because a character will never die! A man will die, a writer, the instrument of creation: but what he has created will never die!

- Pirandello, Luigi
Luck seeks those who flee and flees those who seek it.

- Proverb, German
The harder I work the luckier I get.

- Goldwyn, Samuel
When God throws the dice are loaded.

- Proverb, Greek
Life is not so bad if you have plenty of luck, a good physique and not too much imagination

- Isherwood, Christopher
It is bad luck to fall out of a thirteenth story window on Friday.

- Proverb, American
Shallow people believe in luck and in circumstances; Strong people believe in cause and effect.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
What is luck? It is not only chance, it is also creating the opportunity, recognizing it when it is there, and taking it when it comes.

- Josefowitz, Natasha
Chance does not speak essentially through words nor can it be seen in their convolution. It is the eruption of language, its sudden appearance. It's not a night twinkle with stars, an illuminated sleep, nor a drowsy vigil. It is the very edge of consciousness.

- Foucault, Michel
A great man's greatest good luck is to die at the right time.

- Hoffer, Eric
You don't need intelligence to have luck, but you do need luck to have intelligence.

- Proverb, Jewish
What we call luck is the inner man externalized. We make things happen to us.

- Davies, Robertson
