Quote of the Day
Inspiration is one thing and you can't control it, but hard work is what keeps the ship moving. Good luck means, work hard. Keep up the good work.
Your competition is not other people but the time you kill, the ill will you create, the knowledge you neglect to learn, the connections you fail to build, the health you sacrifice along the path, your inability to generate ideas, the people around you who don't support and love your efforts, and whatever god you curse for your bad luck.
The only good luck many great men ever had was being born with the ability and determination to overcome bad luck.
Luck is a very thin wire between survival and disaster, and not many people can keep their balance on it.
Hunter S. Thompson
I think we consider too much the good luck of the early bird and not enough the bad luck of the early worm.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
My success was due to good luck, hard work, and support and advice from friends and mentors. But most importantly, it depended on me to keep trying after I had failed.
There are two types of poor people, those who are poor together and those who are poor alone. The first are the true poor, the others are rich people out of luck.
My parents didn't believe in luck. They believed in hard work and in preparing me to take advantage of opportunity. Like many parents, they taught me to be generous but never to depend on the generosity of others.
I think the most fun part about working on 'Good Luck Charlie' is spending time with everyone, honestly, because everybody on set is like my brother and sister and mom and dad. They're so fun to be around, so that's probably the best part about working there.
Bradley Steven Perry
You gotta try your luck at least once a day, because you could be going around lucky all day and not even know it.
Saint Patrick's Day
Diligence is the mother of good luck.
Be prepared, work hard, and hope for a little luck. Recognize that the harder you work and the better prepared you are, the more luck you might have.
Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.
I've found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.
In the U.S., the '50s and '60s marked the documentary's golden age, especially at CBS, where pioneering television journalist Edward R. Murrow, immortalised in George Clooney's 'Good Night, and Good Luck,' produced such landmark investigations as the CBS Reports programme 'Hunger in America.'
The amount of good luck coming your way depends on your willingness to act.
A career path is rarely a path at all. A more interesting life is usual a more crooked, winding path of missteps, luck and vigorous work. It is almost always a clumsy balance between the things you try to make happen and the things that happen to you.
The last time I saw Ted Kennedy was a generation after my first meeting, at the Senate subway below the Capitol on Obama's Inauguration Day. He was his usual gregarious and gracious self - with beaming smile and booming voice wishing my husband and me good luck with our pregnancy and expressing his excitement about the new president.
Nobody gets justice. People only get good luck or bad luck.
A film like 'Good Night And Good Luck,' you make that for $7 million because you know it's a black-and-white film, and it's not an easy sell. If you make it for $7 million, then everybody can have a chance to make a little bit of money, and you get to make the film you want to make.
Luck? I don't know anything about luck. I've never banked on it and I'm afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work - and realizing what is opportunity and what isn't.
Your karma should be good, and everything else will follow. Your good karma will always win over your bad luck.
I believe in luck and fate and I believe in karma, that the energy you put out in the world comes back to meet you.
John F. Kennedy
