Luck is what you have left over after you give 100 percent.
Your luck is how you treat people
Luck has a peculiar habit of favoring those who don't depend on it
A person does not seek luck; luck seeks the person
What luck for the rulers that men do not think
Jealousy is simply and clearly the fear that you do not have value. Jealousy scans for evidence to prove the point - that others will be preferred and rewarded more than you. There is only one alternative - self-value. If you cannot love yourself, you will not believe that you are loved. You will always think it's a mistake or luck. Take your eyes off others and turn the scanner within. Find the seeds of your jealousy, clear the old voices and experiences. Put all the energy into building your personal and emotional security. Then you will be the one others envy, and you can remember the pain and reach out to them.
Beyond talent lie all the usual words: discipline, love, luck -- but, most of all, endurance.
Sure, luck means a lot in football. Not having a good quarterback is bad luck.
To a brave man, good and bad luck are like his right and left hand. He uses both.
The deepest thing in any one is the conviction of the bad luck that follows boasting
A stout heart breaks bad luck
No gulls, no luck.
Most of life is choices, and the rest is pure dumb luck.
Darwin's theory of evolution was simple, beautiful, majestic and awe-inspiring. But because it contradicts the allegorical babblings of a bunch of made-up old books, it's been under attack since day one. That's just tough luck for Darwin. If the Bible had contained a passage that claimed gravity is caused by God pulling objects toward the ground with magic invisible threads, we'd still be debating Newton with idiots too.
Dr Slade went in to lunch in a state of desperate boredom tempered with resentment; it had shaken him a little to see how bad luck could be prolonged to such unlikely lengths.
In war, luck is half in everything.
I'm a very talented person, I know that. I'm a very gifted person. I have a lot of imagination. I work hard. I feel I have the attributes within myself to have achieved what I have done. There has been no luck, no miracles. The only miracle has been this voice.
Heart, my heart, so battered with misfortune far beyond your strength,
up, and face the men who hate us. Bare your chest to the assault
of the enemy, and fight them off. Stand fast among the beamlike spears.
Give no ground; and if you beat them, do not brag in open show,
nor, if they beat you, run home and lie down on your bed and cry.
Keep some measure in the joy you take in luck, and the degree you
give way to sorrow. All our life is up-and-down like this.
Victory is for them, not for us. We have not made profit out of our country's misfortune. Victory does not bring us luck.

The author of The Prophet not only has the good luck to have talent, he has also the talent to have good luck.
The British are special. The world knows it. In our innermost thoughts we know it. This is the greatest nation on earth. So it has been an honour to serve it. I give my thanks to you, the British people, for the times that I have succeeded, and my apologies to you for the times I have fallen short. But good luck.
You had a lot of crooks try to steal your heart, never really had luck couldnt never figure out how to love.
