Good luck has its storms.
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.

Franklin D. Roosevelt
Your karma should be good, and everything else will follow. Your good karma will always win over your bad luck.

I cannot improve on those spoken for many years by a true legend who preceded me at CBS News. He would say, simply, 'good night, and good luck.'

Sometimes bad luck hits you like in an ancient Greek tragedy, and it's not your own making. When you have a plane crash, it's not your fault.
There is no such thing in the world as luck. There never was a man who could go out in the morning and find a purse full of gold in the street to-day, and another to-morrow, and so on, day after day: He may do so once in his life; but so far as mere luck is concerned, he is as liable to lose it as to find it.
P. T. Barnum

Nothing is as obnoxious as other people's luck.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
I believe in luck: how else can you explain the success of those you dislike?

I feel I'd like to share my luck and my life. Being in love is the best thing in the world.

Orison Swett Marden
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.
It is by universal misunderstanding that all agree. For if, by ill luck, people understood each other, they would never agree.
