"The luck of having talent is not enough; one must also have a talent for luck."
Author: Hawken Quotes Category: Luck Quotes
"Someone receives a promotion, gets an important assignment, makes a major discovery, or moves into the president's office. ''He's lucky,'' an envious person remarks. ''He gets the breaks; they're always in his favor.'' In reality, luck or the breaks of life had little or nothing to do with it. So-called ''luck'' usually is found at the exact point where preparation meets opportunity. For a time, an individual may get ahead by ''pull,'' but eventually someone with push will displace him. Success is not due to a fortuitous concourse of stars at our birth, but to a steady trail of sparks from the grindstone of hard work each day."
Author: Hildebrand Quotes Category: Luck Quotes

As a result, they enjoy in later life the success often erroneously attributed to good luck."
