Quotes About Luck

Would you believe luck is a controversial thing? Some people don't believe there is any such thing. Others swear by it and think luck is what brings them each sweepstakes and contest win. Here are some quotes about luck from different perspectives.

On Being Prepared for Luck

A majority of sweepstakers might agree with the idea of being prepared for luck. After all, if we didn't enter, we wouldn't win. Oprah Winfrey, Denzel Washington and others have stated a variation of the following:

"The meeting of preparation with opportunity generates the offspring we call luck." ~ Tony Robbins, motivational speaker

"But, he thought, I keep them with precision. Only I have no luck anymore. But who knows? Maybe today. Every day is a new day. It is better to be lucky. But I would rather be exact. Then when luck comes you are ready." ~ author Ernest Hemingway from The Old Man and the Sea

"I've found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often." ~ Brian Tracy, motivational speaker

"Luck affects everything. Let your hook always be cast; in the stream where you least expect it there will be a fish." ~ Ovid, Roman poet

"Give luck a chance to happen." ~ Tom Kite, American professional golfer

Makes You Think

"Luck has a way of evaporating when you lean on it." ~ author Brandon Mull

"I believe life is a series of near misses. A lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all. It's seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future. It's seeing what other people don't see and pursuing that vision." ~ Howard Schultz, chairman and CEO of Starbucks coffee

"Good luck has its storms." ~ George Lucas of Star Wars fame

"I think luck falls on not just the brave but also the ones who believe they belong there." ~ Novak Djokovic, Serbian professional tennis player

"But if it starts to turn the wrong way, the lucky are prepared to stop it. They have the capacity to get out of deteriorating situations quickly. They know how to discard bad luck before it becomes worse luck." ~ Max Gunther, author of The Luck Factor: Why Some People Are Luckier Than Others and How You Can Become One of Them

Just for Fun

"You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocketship underpants don’t help.” ~ Bill Watterson, Calvin & Hobbes

"I get no respect. The way my luck is running, if I was a politician I would be honest." ~ Rodney Dangerfield, comedian

"You've gotta ask yourself a question—Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?" ~ Clint Eastwood's character Harry Callahan from the film Dirty Harry

I hope some of these lift your day and make you smile. I'll sign off with one of my favorites:

"In the long run, you make your own luck—good, bad, or indifferent. ~ Loretta Lynn, country singer and song writer
