Wise Words

All of us have bad luck and good luck. The man who persists through the bad luck - who keeps right on going - is the man who is there when the good luck comes - and is ready to receive it.
~ Robert Collier


 With the number of contests going on throughout the blogosphere this week, I thought a few words about luck would be appropriate. Remember that luck doesn't apply only to things like winning, though. Sometimes, we make our luck through stubborn persistence!

Happy Friday!
