The simple fact was that if the song wasn't about me, I couldn't see how it could possibly be about anybody else, including the one I knew it was supposed to be about, and good luck to him, too.
There is much good luck in the world, but it is luck. We are none of us safe. We are children, playing or quarrelling on the line.
To support mother and father, to cherish wife and child and to have a simple livelihood; this is the good luck.
This is the third time; I hope good luck lies in odd numbers. . . . There is divinity in odd numbers, either in nativity, chance or death.
I saw a product on late night tv. It said, you can water your hard-to-reach plants with this product. Who the fuck would make their plants hard to reach?! I know you need water, but I'm gonna make you hard to reach. I will throw water at you. Hopefully they invent a product before you shrivel and die. And they said, you can have this product for four easy payments of $.. I would like to see a product that was available for three easy payments, and one fuckin' complicated payment. We ain't gonna tell you which one it is, but one of these payments is gonna be a bitch: the mailman will get shot to death, the envelope will not seal, and the stamps will be in the wrong denomination...Good luck f*cker! The last payment must be made in wompum!
Being generous, just helping one's relatives and being blameless in one's actions; this is the best good luck.
Reverence, humility, contentment, gratitude and hearing the good Dhamma, this is the best good luck.
Why be afraid of what people will say? Those who care about you will say, "Good luck!" and those who care only about themselves will never say anything worth listening to anyway.
May good luck be your friend in whatever you do and may trouble be always a stranger to you.
