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

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

"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

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
