Felix felicis: also known as liquid luck, is a fictional potion that gives the drinker a feeling of 'extreme good luck'. Unfortunately, the real world doesn't have something like this to offer. But we do have some great quotes on good luck that could inspire us.
"What's luck got to do with it?" some would say. Others are convinced that luck has a big part to play in how successful, or even happy, one is in life. Doesn't it often seem that good things just happen to some people, while others just don't seem to get what they seem to be worthy of? In fact, research has been done on why good luck seemingly happens almost consistently to some people, and it has been shown that the positive attitude one has, has a lot to do with the lucky breaks one gets. Well, whether that is the case, or it is all a matter of chance, here are some good luck quotes from some eminent people, who perhaps have had Lady Luck smiling on them.
★ "Luck is when opportunity knocks and you answer."
★ "Everything in life is luck."
★ "I dreamed impossible dreams. And the dreams turned out beyond anything I could possibly imagine. You know, from my point of view, I'm the luckiest cat on the planet."
★ "Luck is believing you're lucky."
★ "When life appears to be working against you, when your luck is down, when the supposedly wrong people show up, or when you slip up and return to old, self-defeating habits, recognize the signs that you're out of harmony with intention."
★ "I am a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it."
★ "It's hard to detect good luck, it looks so much like something you've earned."
Frank A. Clark
★ "Those who have succeeded at anything and don't mention luck are kidding themselves."
★ "Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get."
★ "I'm lucky. I'm the luckiest guy in the world. I never really had a job. I was a football player, then a football coach, then a football broadcaster. It's been my life. Pro football has been my life since 1967. I've enjoyed every part of it. Never once did it ever feel like work."
★ "Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity."
★ "Wherever smart people work, doors are unlocked."
★ "I've found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often."

★ "For a long time now I have tried simply to write the best I can. Sometimes I have good luck and write better than I can."
★ "In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity."
★ "All of us have bad luck and good luck. The man who persists through the bad luck - who keeps right ongoing - is the man who is there when the good luck comes - and is ready to receive it."
★ "O, once in each man's life, at least, Good luck knocks at his door; And wit to seize the flitting guest Need never hunger more. But while the loitering idler waits Good luck beside his fire, The bold heart storms at fortune's gates, And conquers its desire."
Lewis J. Bates
★ "I am what I am and, you know, I'm a very lucky guy."
★ "Men of action are favored by the Goddess of luck."
George S. Clason
★ "The day You decide to do it is your lucky day."
★ "Being deeply learned and skilled, being well trained and using well spoken words; This is good luck."
★ "Luck is what happens to you when fate gets tired of waiting."
