Luck quotes page 3

Luck for the fools and chance for the ugly.
English proverb

The inability to align to money and abundance is not a misfortune. Nor is it necessarily bad
luck, or a sad karma you've been shouldered with. More often than not, a lack of money is
the result of errors in the finetuning of the buttons and knobs that make up the real you and
your grand plan.
Stuart Wilde

See a pin and pick it up, all the day you'll have good luck.

Not many people in this world are as lucky as I've been. Although, if you do see me in a
restaurant, please, just let me eat my dinner.
Andy Rooney

African proverb, Bemba

When a woman marries again, it is because she detested her first husband. When a man
marries again, it is because he adored his first wife. Women try their luck; men risk theirs.
Oscar Wilde

much longer.

"Nearly" only counts in horseshoes and hand-grenades.
Neil Gaiman

Above all, he liked it that everything was one's own fault. There was only oneself to praise or
blame. Luck was a servant and not a master. Luck had to be accepted with a shrug or taken
advantage of up to the hilt. But it had to be understood and recognized for what it was and
not confused with a faulty appreciation of the odds, for, at gambling, the deadly sin is to
mistake bad play for bad luck. And luck in all its moods had to be loved and not feared.
Ian Fleming, Casino Royale

Luck is not chance, it's toil; fortune's expensive smile is earned.
Emily Dickinson

It's a sad day when you find out that it's not accident or fortune but just yourself that kept
things from you.
