Good fortune Quotes

Diligence is the mother of good fortune, and idleness its opposite never brought a man to the goal of any of his best wishes.

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

After falling for a very long time, as I surmise after the fact (I was falling so fast that I must have lost track), all I can remember is that I found myself under a tree. I was entangled in three or four rather large branches I had broken in my fall. An apple had squashed against my face and made it all wet with its juice. Fortunately, as you will soon learn, this place was the Garden of Eden, and the tree I had fallen into was none other than the Tree of Life. You would be quite right to think I would have been killed a thousand times over but for this miraculous good fortune.

Cyrano Hercule Savinien de Bergerac

One must not try to trick misfortune, but resign oneself to it with good grace.

Aristophanes

Too few rejoice at a friend's good fortune.

Aeschylus

We should manage our fortune as we do our health - enjoy it when good, be patient when it is bad, and never apply violent remedies except in an extreme necessity.

François de la Rochefoucauld

Happiness consists more in the small conveniences of pleasures that occur every day, than in great pieces of good fortune that happen but seldom to a man in the course of his life.

Benjamin Franklin

Fortune knocks at every man's door once in a life, but in a good many cases the man is in a neighboring saloon and does not hear her.

Mark Twain
