Good Luck Quotes A-Z by Author|
believe that I was lucky to have suffered. Some people dont realize that
in suffering there is great potential, because if you are deprived for any reason..
politically, financially, socially or otherwise.. and if you set your mind in
the right direction, you will find that the only way to survive is for you to
excel, by being better so you can be treated better.

once told me: 'Luck is when opportunity meets preparation'. And that's what I
really feel with my music. I've worked really, really hard on it. It was like,
'this is really what I want to do.. what do I have to do to make it work?'
Baxter - Luck

The modelling was fun but I don't see it the same as music, because with
modelling, I was just kind of lucky, I just fell into it. I got discovered at
a train station when I'd just turned 15, I was working full-time by 16, moved
overseas and then just kept at it and made it a life. Whereas with my music, I've

With the casino and the beds, our passengers
will have at least two ways to get lucky
on one of our flights.
So I've been praying to Joe for about a
year now. And I noticed something. I noticed
that all the prayers I used to offer to
God, and all the prayers I now offer to
Joe Pesci, are being answered at about the
same 50% rate. Half the time I get what
I want, half the time I don't. Same as God,
50-50. Same as the four-leaf clover and
the horseshoe, the wishing well and the
rabbit's foot, same as the Mojo Man, same
as the Voodoo Lady who tells you your fortune
by squeezing the goat's testicles, it's
all the same: 50-50. So just pick your superstition,
sit back, make a wish, and enjoy yourself.
Carlin - God
Opportunity is a haughty goddess who wastes
no time with those who are unprepared.
Clason - Luck
I was slightly cynical of the American mentality
before I came over here, but now I preach
it. Here, no one's going to tear you down
if you buy yourself a $300,000 car. They're
likely to say: "Well, you probably
worked hard for it. Good luck to you."
Cowell - Cynical
Work - Luck
It doesnt matter how many times you
fail. It doesnt matter how many times
you almost get it right. No one is going
to know or care about your failures, and
neither should you. All you have to do is
learn from them and those around you because...
All that matters in business is that you
get it right once. Then everyone can tell
you how lucky you are.
Cuban - Business
It is rare to find a business partner who
is selfless. If you are lucky it happens
once in a lifetime.
Eisner - Luck
The movie business has always been like
the wild-catting oil business. Everyone
wants a gusher.
Eisner - Luck
I think that I am the luckiest cat on the
planet and I'm living out my own dreams
and fantasies and have been for a number
of years and to remain at this stage of
my life, you know, so alive and things have
never been better.
Hefner - Lucky
I dreamed impossible dreams. And the dreams turned out beyond anything I
could possibly imagine. You know, from my point of view, I'm the luckiest cat
on the planet.
Hefner - Lucky
When life appears to be working against you, when your luck is down, when
the supposedly wrong people show up, or when you slip up and return to old, self-defeating
habits, recognize the signs that you're out of harmony with intention.
Huxley - Life
- Luck -
I just lucked into things. I used to think that if I made
$50,000 I'd be the happiest guy in the world.

sweat, the luckier you get.

right six times out of ten. You're never
going to be right nine times out of ten.

I'm the luckiest guy in the world. I never really had a job. I was a football
player, then a football coach, then a football broadcaster. It's been my life.
Pro football has been my life since 1967. I've enjoyed every part of it. Never
once did it ever feel like work.

We don't have much in the way of a business strategy. Like no business plan.
Which I say to torment all my friends who are VCs or MBAs. That's always entertaining.

- Luck -

are than other people.

If you want more luck, take more chances.
Be more active. Show up more often.
Tracy - Action
When luck is on your side it is not the
time to be modest or timid. It is the time
to go for the biggest success you can possibly
Trump - Luck
I feel that luck is preparation meeting
Winfrey - Opportunity
Some great people are leaders and others
are more lucky, in the right place at the
right time. I'd put myself in the latter
category. But I'd never call myself a normal
designer of anything.
Wozniak - Great
