Good Luck

1.“The day you decide to do it is your lucky day.” ~Japanese Proverb

2.” Luck has a peculiar habit of favoring those who don't depend on it. “ ~Author Unknown

3.” Good luck is often with the man who doesn't include it in his plans.” ~ William Shakespeare

4.”Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

5. “You never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from.”  ~Cormac McCarthy, No Country for Old Me

6.” It’s wishing you joy, I’ll be havin’ you know, and the luck o’the Irish wherever you go. ~Irish Quote

7.” Luck will carry a man across the brook if he is not too lazy to leap.”  ~Danish Proverb

8.”There is no one luckier than he who thinks himself so.” ~German Proverb

9.” "Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get." ~Ray Kroc

10. Good Luck Bad Luck!
An old farmer used an old horse to plow his fields. One day, his horse escaped into the hills. When the farmer's neighbors sympathized with the old man over his bad luck, the farmer replied, "Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?"

A week later, the horse returned with a herd of horses from the hills. This time the neighbors congratulated the farmer on his good luck. His reply was, "Good luck? Bad luck? Who knows?"

Then, when the farmer's son was attempting to tame one of the wild horses, he fell off its back and broke his leg. Everyone thought this very bad luck. Not the farmer, whose only reaction was, "Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?"

Some weeks later, the army marched into the village and took every able-bodied youth they found there. When they saw the farmer's son with his broken leg, they let him off. Now was that good luck or bad luck? Who knows?

Everything that seems on the surface to be an evil may be a good in disguise. And everything that seems good on the surface may really be an evil. So we are wise when we leave it to God to decide what is good fortune and what misfortune, and thank him that all things turn out for good with those who love him~Author Unknown~

I'm wishing you the best kind of luck. I think that's the kind you make for yourself. :-) Happy Thanksgiving, Leona.

I always say good luck, but I think I want to say good karma. Or blessed be. I know that may sound a little off, but good luck and God bless are not exactly what I mean although both are good.

I know... I can be a strange bird. LOL

I like all those quotes but 2 & 3 are the best because they're almost identical. I do believe the last bit is straight out of the Bible. I'm going to save these because my sister is always talking about luck when luck really doesn't have anything to do with what she's talking about- usually she's just talking about someone's hard work finally prospering. Great post !
