No luck, good luck, or bad luck ... living involves dealing with the surprises and capriciousness of events in our lives.
"Your competition is not other people but the time you
kill, the ill will you create, the knowledge you neglect to learn, the
connections you fail to build, the health you sacrifice along the path, your
inability to generate ideas, the people around you who don't support and love
your efforts, and whatever god you curse for your bad luck."
- James Altucher
"Diligence is the mother of good luck."
- Benjamin Franklin
"Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity."
- Lucius Annaeus Seneca
"The only good luck many great men ever had was being born with the ability and
determination to overcome bad luck."
- Channing Pollock
"Luck is the residue of design."
- Branch Rickey
"Luck, bad if not good, will always be with us. But it has a way of favoring the
intelligent and showing its back to the stupid."
- John Dewey
