“Luck is a goddess not to be coerced and forcibly wooed by those who seek her favours. From such masterful spirits she turns away. But it happens sometimes that, if we put our hand in hers with the humble trust of a little child, she will have pity on us, and not fail us in our hour of need.” ~ P.G. Wodehouse

British actor Roger Moore who is probably best remembered for his portrayal of James Bond has a special way he deals with mean people. I thought it would be fun to inject some cheekiness into the quote thread this week. wink

"I've learnt that through life you just get on with it. You're going to meet a lot of dishonest people along the line and you say good luck to them. I hope they live in comfort. Then I start sticking more pins in their effigies." ~ Roger Moore

Definitely love this quote from Roger Moore. Reminds me of one of the James Bond movies with voodoo. I think he was in that one too.

"People often remark that I'm pretty lucky. Luck is only important in so far as getting the chance to sell yourself at the right moment. After that, you've got to have talent and know how to use it." ~ Frank Sinatra

I thought this week we'd go with an inspirational quote, so here you are:

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover."

This one or variations of it have been attributed to Mark Twain but there's a question of whether he ever wrote it ( source ). Still, I think it's a wonderful sentiment. Have a great week everyone.

“Ilse and I hunted all over the old orchard today for a four-leaved clover and couldn't find one. Then I found one in a clump of clover by the dairy steps tonight when I was straining the milk and never thinking of clovers. Cousin Jimmy says that is the way luck always comes, and it is no use to look for it.”
~ L.M. Montgomery, Emily of New Moon

Luck? I don't know anything about luck. I've never banked on it and I'm afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work - and realizing what is opportunity and what isn't.
Lucille Ball

I like this one. It's attributed to a number of different people, so I guess I'm not the only one that likes it! wink

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

These holiday quotes may not technically fall under the luck or inspirational theme but I think they're cute. Do you have any you want to share?

“I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.” ~ Shirley Temple

“Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas … perhaps … means a little bit more.” ~ Dr. Seuss

Hi Trish,

It's so nice to see you laugh

I don't know if you remember me, but I was a writer here back from 2006 till 2012.

Anyway, I thought I'd share a quote too laugh

Have a wonderful day!

"Giving opens the way to receiving." ~ Florence Scovel Shinn
