Luck quotes
Luck
1.

Chance is the one thing you can't buy. You have to pay for it and you have to pay for it with your life, spending a lot of time, you pay for it with time, not the wasting of time but the spending of time.

- Doisneau, Robert
2.

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

- Robert Heinlein
3.

All of us have bad luck and good luck. The man who persists through the bad luck -- who keeps right on going -- is the man who is there when the good luck comes -- and is ready to receive it.

- Collier, Robert
4.

When God throws the dice are loaded.

- Proverb, Greek
5.

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
6.

No matter how good you are, there's a lot of luck involved.

- Miller, Reggie
7.

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
8.

A pound of pluck is worth a ton of luck.

- James A. Garfield
9.

The dice of Zeus always fall luckily.

- Sophocles
10.

It is true that when we take chances, we stand to lose. But it is also true that we will never win anything if we never even enter the game. Lucky people are aware of the possibility of losing, and indeed they may lose often. But since the chances they take are small, the losses tend to be small. By being willing to accept small losses, they put themselves in position to make large gains.

- Gunther, Max
11.

Happiness is always a by-product. It is probably a matter of temperament, and for anything I know it may be glandular. But it is not something that can be demanded from life, and if you are not happy you had better stop worrying about it and see what treasures you can pluck from your own brand of unhappiness.

- Robertson Davies
12.

The Lord be with you, dearest lady, said Adrian Gilbert. "Strange how you women sit at home to love and suffer, while we men rush forth to break our hearts and yours against rocks of our own seeking! Ah! hech! were it not for Scripture I should have thought that Adam, rather than Eve, had been the one who plucked the fruit of the forbidden tree."

- Westward Ho! chap. xiii. 1855.
13.

The Goddess Fortune is the devil's servant, ready to kiss any one's ass.

- Blake, William
14.

I live now on borrowed time, waiting in the anteroom for the summons that will inevitably come. And then - I go on to the next thing, whatever it is. One doesn't luckily have to bother about that.

- Agatha Christie
15.

Watch out when you're getting all you want. Fattening hogs ain't in luck.

- Harris, Joel Chandler
16.

REPROBATION, n. In theology, the state of a luckless mortal prenatally damned. The doctrine of reprobation was taught by Calvin, whose joy in it was somewhat marred by the sad sincerity of his conviction that although some are foredoomed to perdition, others are predestined to salvation.

- Ambrose Bierce
17.

Geniuses are the luckiest of mortals because what they must do is the same as what they most want to do.

- Auden, W. H.
18.

I am a great believer in luck and the harder I work the more of it I have.

- Leacock, Stephen B.
19.

The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment; it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone.

- Marden, Orison Swett
20.

It is bad luck to be superstitious.

- Andrew W. Mathis
