"Good Luck" Is Everywhere!  

Good luck quotes prove that it is possible to be lucky if you have a positive attitude. You, too, can "hit the jackpot" or have a "windfall".

To have good luck, you need to do the things that usually result in hitting the jackpot. Hard work over an extended period of time should do it. Combine that with frugality and you've got a winning combination.

Nearly every language has a term for "good luck". In Sweden you would say: "Lycka till!"  Others are: "Guid Luck!" (Scotland)"Boa sorte!" (Portugal or Brazil)"Buona fortuna" (Italy), "Held og lykke!" (Denmark), and "Veel geluk!" (Netherland).
