Quotes of the Day for 13 December 2002 – Luck

I believe in luck, but I'm not superstitious. I am occasionally cautious, so I don't walk under ladders as a general rule, but that's not really a matter of luck. I'm definitely lazy enough to jump on a convenient bandwagon, so on Friday the Thirteenth I drag out the Luck quotes.

     - Brian Tracy

A lucky man is rarer than a white crow.

I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.
