“Choice, not chance, determines destiny.” -Unknown

“What’s the difference between chance and luck?  Luck almost implies like a leprechaun is, sort of somebody is making this happen.  In many ways, it seems like certain people are luckier than others.  I think what that really means is that when they were given chances, they elected to pursue them, as opposed to step away from them.  And that kind of creates the illusion of luck.” -Chuck Klosterman

“Luck is an open door.  Chance is the willingness to step through.”
