(2.) luck of the draw              (6.) push my luck                        "He lucked into a disk-jockey job yesterday"

(3.) luck of the devil              (7.) beginners luck                     

(4.) out of luck                      (8.) give me luck

    I define luck as chance & opportunities. To me it a blessing or a missed blessing. It definitely a opportunity to be blessed or bless someone else, If you don't want it pass it on. It you have it still pass some on.Smile

      According to the classic Noah Webster's dictionary: Luck is "a purposeless, unpredictable and uncontrollable force that shapes events favorably or unfavorably for an individual, group or cause".

      Author Max Gunther defines it as "events that influence one's life and are seemingly beyond one's control".

      A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

          Actually there probably is no such thing as luck ... it's just that some people seem to have more of it than others !!!

          So call it luck ... good fortune ... good karma or whatever.

          Being in the "right place" at the right time ... being in the 'wrong place" at the right time ... or wrong time.

          The pendulum swings both ways ... maybe it gets stuck for some people and they seem to have a lucky streak or an unlucky streak.

          Just seems to be one of the mysteries of the Universe or the Ocean !

          ...

              Big Smile  LOL  can be "Laugh out Loud" or "Love out Loud".  Are there any others ?Hurray!

                  "If it weren't for bad luck

                  I'd have no luck at all.

                  gloom, despair and agony on me...."

                   

                  a little Hee Haw for thoseold enough to remember!  Luck vs chance, statistics vs belief, fate vs reality....

                  as a mathematician, I see it as statistics which can be used to show anything you want them to show. 

                  Luck... Many cultures have different beliefs, symbols etc that reflect luch in their eyes.  Chineese, the color red, as well as dragons .....

                            I was born in the USA to parents who valued education and hard work, stayed together until I was well into adulthood, and didn't drink too much, beat on each other, or use illicit drugs in front of me.

                            I don't have to win the lottery to call myself lucky.
