Need Good Luck? Earn It!

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
