The vast majority of us believe in luck.

quotes about luck


Even those who claim they don’t are often guilty of engaging in certain superstitious behaviors: avoiding walking under a ladder, keeping new shoes off the table, not letting a black cat cross their path. These are the old wives tales that so many of us have grown up with – and we do them without thinking about it, whether we think they will affect our luck or not.


Whether there actually is some kind of metaphysical explanation behind luck, or whether it’s an entirely psychological phenomenon, it’s a universal truth – everybody likes to feel lucky.


The feeling of luck goes hand in hand with confidence. And fortunately, our confidence is something that we can improve: it’s simply a matter of focusing on what we want and working hard. Whether that improves our luck or not is the million dollar question.

But we have to remember that feeling unlucky can be a mindset; a natural response to being underprepared for the tasks that are in front of us. And that is something we can change.

We’ve put together a selection of the best quotes to help you better understand luck, and harness the power it brings.

– Benjamin Franklin

The lucky or successful person has learned a simple secret. Call up, capture, evoke the feeling of success. When you feel successful and self-confident, you will act successful. Define your goal or end result. Picture it to yourself clearly and vividly. Then simply capture the feeling you would experience if the desirable goal were already an established fact. Then your internal machinery is geared for success: to guide you in making the correct muscular motions and adjustments; to supply you with creative ideas, and to do whatever else is necessary in order to make the goal an accomplished fact.
MAXWELL MALTZ, Psychocybernetics

quotes about luck


I've had bad luck and I've had good and neither one lasted long enough to dry spit.
JO CLAYTON, Diadem from the Stars

Indeed, there is hardly a word in the vocabulary which is more cruelly abused than the word "luck." To all the faults and failures of men, their positive sins and their less culpable shortcomings, it is made to stand a godfather and sponsor. We are all Micawbers at heart, fancying that "something" will one day "turn up" for our good, for which we have never striven. Go talk with the bankrupt man of business, who has swamped his fortune by wild speculation, extravagance of living, or lack of energy, and you will find that he vindicates his wounded self-love by confounding the steps which he took indiscreetly with those to which he was forced by "circumstances," and complacently regarding himself as the victim of ill-luck. Go visit the incarcerated criminal, who has imbrued his hands in the blood of his fellow-man, or who is guilty of less heinous crimes, and you will find that, slumping the temptations which were easy to avoid with those which were comparatively irresistible, he has hurriedly patched up a treaty with conscience, and stifles its compunctious visitings by persuading himself that, from first to last, he was the victim of circumstances. Go talk with the mediocre in talents and attainments, the weak-spirited man who, from lack of energy and application, has made but little headway in the world, being outstripped in the race of life by those whom he had despised as his inferiors, and you will find that he, too, acknowledges the all-potent power of luck, and soothes his humbled pride by deeming himself the victim of ill-fortune. In short, from the most venial offense to the most flagrant, there is hardly any wrong act or neglect to which this too fatally convenient word is not applied as a palliation. It has been truly said that there is a fine generality in the expression--a power of any meaning or no meaning--which fits it for all purposes alike. It is the great permanent non-papal, and self-granted indulgence of all mankind.
WILLIAM MATHEWS, "Good and Bad Luck", Hints on Success in Life

Luck is looking for a needle in a haystack and coming out with the farmer's daughter.
PHYLLIS MARTIN, Quips, Quotes and Savvy Sayings

Luck makes friends.
OVID, attributed, Day's Collacon

Good luck is often with the man who doesn't include it in his plans.
ANONYMOUS

The only sure thing about luck is that it will change.
BRET HARTE, "The Outcasts of Poker Flat"


Luck is the residue of design.
ARAB PROVERB
