Fortunate quotes by Tommy Douglas
#1. We are all in this world together, and the only test of our character that matters is how we look after the least fortunate among us. How we look after each other, not how we look after ourselves. That's all that really matters, I think. #Quote by Tommy Douglas
Fortunate quotes by Louis De Bernieres
#2. Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don't blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being "in love", which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. #Quote by Louis De Bernieres
Fortunate quotes by Isobelle Carmody
#3. I am very fortunate in that I have spent pretty much my whole life being a writer, and before I was a writer, I was a storyteller. #Quote by Isobelle Carmody

Fortunate quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#5. I write four books a year. I'm very fortunate that I write quickly; around 3,500 words a day. Being strict about delineating my writing time and personal life, as well as keeping distractions at bay, is the only way I can accomplish this. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Fortunate quotes by Stacie Orrico
#6. I am very determined when it comes to my music, and I grew up just loving those singers who had that urban sort of feeling. So when it came down to making my record, I wanted to have that as well. ForeFront was really good about letting me go in that direction and then of course adding the more pop sounds. I feel very fortunate that I got to explore some unique and creative angles musically. #Quote by Stacie Orrico
Fortunate quotes by Darren Flutie
#7. I feel fortunate that there was a place like the CFL where I could hone my skill and become a consistent football player and have a nice career. #Quote by Darren Flutie
Fortunate quotes by Jennifer Chiaverini

Fortunate quotes by Chuck Norris
#9. I've been very fortunate to be able to use my series as a platform to show a good message for the kids. #Quote by Chuck Norris
Fortunate quotes by Joan Lunden
#10. I feel fortunate I have this amazing relationship with so many people in America, because I was in their homes at a very private time of day. They probably might have still had their robe on and their slippers and haven't made the beds. #Quote by Joan Lunden
Fortunate quotes by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
#11. Through certain humors or passions, and from temper merely, a man may be completely miserable, let his outward circumstances be ever so fortunate. #Quote by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
Fortunate quotes by Joseph Conrad
#12. The artist descends within himself, and in that lonely region of stress and strife, if he be deserving and fortunate, he finds the terms of his appeal. His appeal is made to our less obvious capacities: to that part of our nature which, because of the warlike conditions of existence, is necessarily kept out of sight within the more resisting and hard qualities ... His appeal is less loud, more profound, less distinct, more stirring - and sooner forgotten. Yet its effect endures forever ... the artist appeals to that part of our being which is not dependent on wisdom: to that in us which is a gift and not an acquisition - and, therefore, more permanently enduring. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Fortunate quotes by Albert Einstein
#13. The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Fortunate quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#14. There's a swell book that's out of print now. Maybe Seven Stories will bring it out again. It's called The Writer and Psychoanalysis by a man who's now dead named Edmund Bergler. He claimed he had treated more writers than anyone else in his field, and being that he practiced in New York, he probably did. Bergler said that writers were fortunate in that they were able to treat their neuroses every day by writing. He also said that as soon as a writer was blocked, this was catastrophic because the writer would start to go to pieces. And so I said in a piece in Harper's, or a letter I wrote to Harper's, about "the death of the novel": People will continue to write novels, or maybe short stories, because they discover that they are treating their own neuroses. And I have said about the practice of the arts that practicing any art - be it painting, music, dance, literature, or whatever - is not a way to make money or become famous. It's a way to make your soul grow. So you should do it anyway. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Fortunate quotes by Harold Lederman
#15. The best fight I ever saw without question, I was very fortunate to be a judge in the fight, between the then current WBC 122 pound champion Wilfredo Gomez, and the reigning WBC 118 pound champion Lupe Pintor. It was absolutely beyond belief. #Quote by Harold Lederman
Fortunate quotes by Soma Mukherjee
#16. In The Sunset Sky
The sunset sky dazzling with the golden hues,
Taking bow in brilliant sparkle of experience
Is it not a climax, of the story so far, that was today?
Or is it building anticipation of the night yet to come.
Watch the days go,
some proud of their accomplishments
Some leaving sighs of disappointments, Leaving all in awe of its Amaranthine twists and turns
And the fortunate get to see the moon trying to steal the show from setting sun,
Oh she is such a show off, isn't she, basking in reflected glory
Its magical, the sunset sky,Puzzling, sometimes just like a riddle,
Leaving the nature stunned and amazed For it has been filling the canvas whole day with colours
And now the sunset threatens to hide them all
And in dark all the colours will be same
A cue for the wise.
Sunset sky has so much to offer,
is she not a fine exampleof how uncertain a life can be
Often reminding no matter what you planned, there will besome unexpected returns
For End has its own brain, its own script
Charting its own course
So why just the beginning,every moment of the life should be grand,
meted with equal passion and fervor
She has been so clever; the sunset sky
Leaving Twinkling cryptic messages for the night sky
For even the dark has sparkle and hope if you keep your head up,
A constant reminder that exuberance is an attitude of deep,rich, warm hearts
#Quote by Soma Mukherjee
Fortunate quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#17. I often wonder how we can make the more fortunate in this country fully aware of the fact that the problem of the unemployed is not a mechanical one. It is a problem alive and throbbing with human pain. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Fortunate quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#18. The most fortunate of us all in our journey through life frequently meet with calamities and misfortunes which greatly afflict us. To fortify our minds against the attacks of these calamities and misfortunes should be one of the principal studies and endeavors of our lives. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Fortunate quotes by Serban Valentin Constantin Enache
#19. Sinister is the breath that fills our wings, for what are we? What are we beneath skin and feathers?" His question was not left without an answer; Magnus made good on it. "We are the children of incestuous and obscene demons. We are scavengers. We smell the scent of death carried forth by the winds. And once we are past our decade, our thirst for knowledge and survival dims; and we consider ourselves fortunate. For with age comes wisdom, and with age comes death. A murder of crows awaits us all. #Quote by Serban Valentin Constantin Enache
Fortunate quotes by Dikembe Mutombo
#20. I've always felt obligated to help those less fortunate than me. It's an obligation that anyone who has a chance to be in the NBA should feel and act upon. #Quote by Dikembe Mutombo
Fortunate quotes by Gene Wolfe
#21. Whatever we may say, all of us suffer from disturbed sleep at times.
Some in truth hardly sleep, though some who sleep copiously swear that they do not.
Some are disquieted by incessant dreams, and a fortunate few are visited often by dreams of delightful character.
Some will say that they were at one time troubled in sleeping but have 'recovered' from it, as though awareness were a disease, as perhaps it is. #Quote by Gene Wolfe
Fortunate quotes by T.V. Rao
#22. Defining Happiness in the changing world is difficult, even you find very poor people are happy with few things. Real success comes from the quality of our relationships and the emotions that we experience each day. Many unhappy feelings will
disappear if we think Have I done something today that improved the world? Have I accomplished something worthwhile?Have I helped someone less fortunate? Every Unhappy moment reduces enjoying the present moment. always think Have I felt grateful for the incredible gift of being alive? Happiness lies only with us keeping the
moments of life Happy is art, We cannot catch happiness but only follow it let us try to perfect it Dr.T.V.Rao MD #Quote by T.V. Rao
Fortunate quotes by Dane Cook
#23. When you get hit by a car sometimes your shoes will fly off, sometimes your pants will come off, but I was not fortunate enough to see the pants portion. #Quote by Dane Cook
Fortunate quotes by Leon Uris
#24. What could be more fortunate for the German propaganda machine than to be able to pump the theme that the Jews of Palestine were stealing the Arab lands just as they had tried to steal Germany. Jew hating and British imperialism - what music to the Mufti's ears! The #Quote by Leon Uris
Fortunate quotes by Cynthia Weil
#26. We were very fortunate to have been on the scene when we were. #Quote by Cynthia Weil
Fortunate quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#27. It would have been much more fortunate had the Persians become masters of the Greeks, rather than have the Romans of all people assume that role. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Fortunate quotes by David Grossman
#28. We write. How fortunate we are: The world does not close in on us. The world does not grow smaller. #Quote by David Grossman
Fortunate quotes by Howard W. Hunter
#29. To discipline ourselves through fasting brings us in tune with God, and fast day provides an occasion to set aside the temporal so that we might enjoy the higher qualities of the spiritual. As we fast on that day we learn and better understand the needs of those who are less fortunate. #Quote by Howard W. Hunter
Fortunate quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#30. It is very easy for people to be kind to those who are less fortunate than they are. What's not easy, is for people to be kind to those whom they find intimidating, to those they feel best them in one way or another. I admire a person who can be kind to someone who outshines them. Now that's solid kindness. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Fortunate quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#31. One is never fortunate or as unfortunate as one imagines. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Fortunate quotes by Sigmund Freud
#32. I've been a fortunate man in life, nothing has come easily. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Fortunate quotes by John Steinbeck
#33. I think the difference between a lie and a story is that a story utilizes the trappings and appearance of truth for the interest of the listener as well as of the teller. A story has in it neither gain nor loss. But a lie is a device for profit or escape. I suppose if that definition is strictly held to, then a writer of stories is a liar - if he is financially fortunate. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Fortunate quotes by Katherine Schwarzenegger
#34. When I was younger, I played sports and went to camp. As I got older, my parents began to instill in us the importance of giving back to the community, especially those places around the world that are less fortunate than my very privileged life growing up in Los Angeles. #Quote by Katherine Schwarzenegger
Fortunate quotes by Reggie Lee
#35. I consider myself a fortunate working actor, but I really work at it all the time. If I have a couple of weeks off, I'm taking class. You never stop. I started when I was 10 years old in Cleveland, and I've never stopped working my butt off. #Quote by Reggie Lee
Fortunate quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#36. Don't come up behind me," Christopher said roughly. "Ever."
"I of all people should have known that. I won't do it again."
Christopher took a fiery swallow of the liquor. "What do you mean, you of all people?"
"I'm used to wild creatures who don't like to be approached from behind."
He shot her a baleful glance. "How fortunate that your experience with animals has turned out to be such good preparation for marriage to me."
"I didn't mean…well, my point was that I should have been more considerate of your nerves."
"I don't have nerves," he snapped.
"I'm sorry. We'll call them something else. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Fortunate quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#37. This great and sombre stage is set for something more worthy than that," said he. "It is fortunate for this community that I am not a criminal." -Sherlock Holmes- (The adventure of the Bruce-Partington plans) #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Fortunate quotes by Joel Kinnaman
#38. I feel like I've got the best job in the world. I just feel so fortunate to get paid to be a kid and play with my friends. So if it's rough or a little bit hot, you just have to deal with that. #Quote by Joel Kinnaman
Fortunate quotes by Mary Chapin Carpenter
#39. My sisters and I were fortunate to travel through Asia and Europe at very young ages. We confronted extraordinary beauty in Athens and unspeakable poverty in India. #Quote by Mary Chapin Carpenter
Fortunate quotes by Julian Huxley
#40. We are beginning to realize that even the most fortunate people are living far below capacity, and that most human beings develop not more than a small fraction of their potential mental and spiritual efficiency. The human race, in fact, is surrounded by a large area of unrealized possibilities, a challenge to the spirit of exploration. #Quote by Julian Huxley
Fortunate quotes by Sean Mahon
#41. You don't get a chance to sit back and relax because this is the point where we're tweaking things to see what works and what doesn't work; so the level of concentration is very focused. But who wouldn't be happy with this? It's a great opportunity and a really great piece of writing. I'm just really very fortunate. #Quote by Sean Mahon
Fortunate quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
#42. Ordering wine in this place was not unlike ordering milk - he was fortunate there were no real (or any) men at the bar to mock his pussiness. #Quote by Aleksandar Hemon
Fortunate quotes by Maria Sharapova
#43. There's not many firsts in my career, as I have been a part of many tournaments and fortunate enough to win many. #Quote by Maria Sharapova
Fortunate quotes by Marcel Proust
#44. It was fortunate that I had not already yielded to the temptation to break with Albertine; the tedium of having to rejoin her presently, when I went home, was a trifling matter compared with the anxiety that I should have felt if the separation had occurred when I still had a doubt about her and before I had had time to grow indifferent to her. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Fortunate quotes by Anthony Head
#45. I'm fortunate because people can't put a label on me, which I embrace wholeheartedly. #Quote by Anthony Head
Fortunate quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#46. Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Fortunate quotes by Gina Torres
#47. I have been very, very fortunate on this show, on 'Suits,' where the writers do come to me, and they ask my comfort level and, if they want to push an envelope in a certain direction, if I'm okay with that. And, by and large, I am. I think it's important. #Quote by Gina Torres
Fortunate quotes by Kristen Ashley
#48. Callum leaned toward Abel. "Feel it," he said quietly. "Abel, you're fortunate. I know. You have many brothers, as do I. But now, you have two more. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Fortunate quotes by William Howard Taft
#49. Presidents may go to the seashore or to the mountains. Cabinet officers may go about the country explaining how fortunate the country is in having such an administration, but the machinery at Washington continues to operate under the army of faithful non-commissioned officers, and the great mass of governmental business is uninterrupted. #Quote by William Howard Taft
Fortunate quotes by Kerri Maniscalco
#50. It was a nice story, but most fairy tales had a dark side to them, especially when it came to a princess's fate. "A footman or maid?"

"I - I don't believe anyone else is missing," Lady Crenshaw said. "But Elizabeth wouldn't… she's such a good girl. She probably didn't wish to ruin our trip. It's not as if she's a lower-class trollop."

I chomped down on my immediate response, face burning. If she were a he, I doubted they'd call her such names. And her station had nothing to do with the matter whatsoever. Plenty of less fortunate families had more class than Lady Crenshaw had just showed. #Quote by Kerri Maniscalco
Fortunate quotes by Glenn Close
#51. We were fortunate enough to have several good books detailing the camps and the women. Some were by the survivors. I also got to talk to some of the women who had been in the camp, survivors. #Quote by Glenn Close
Fortunate quotes by Shaun Cassidy
#52. I look at old interviews and things and they say, 'What do you want to do when you grow up?' I say, 'I want to be a producer.' And I'm really fortunate that I was able to do it. #Quote by Shaun Cassidy
Fortunate quotes by Charles Frazier
#53. She knew in her heart that nature has a preference for a particular order: parents die, then children die. But it was a harsh design, offering little relief from pain, for being in accord with it means that the fortunate find themselves orphaned. #Quote by Charles Frazier
Fortunate quotes by Mariah Carey
#54. I'm really fortunate. I'm really happy, and I'm really really lucky to be where I am. #Quote by Mariah Carey
Fortunate quotes by Brittany Bowe
#55. I remember that the first country I visited was Canada, and then France. After that, I knew that I loved traveling and seeing the world. I feel that I'm so blessed and fortunate to get to visit so many places and see the world. #Quote by Brittany Bowe
Fortunate quotes by T. Boone Pickens
#56. I was very fortunate in my gene mix. The gambling instincts I inherited from my father were matched by my mother's gift for analysis. #Quote by T. Boone Pickens
Fortunate quotes by Herbert Von Karajan
#57. I have often said to the orchestra, especially to the younger players, 'Do your best, and love what you are doing, because you are allowed to do this thing.' By this I mean, they can do what millions of people cannot do. Many people cannot think of playing music or listening to it until six o'clock in the evening. To be involved professionally in a thing as creative as this is a great privilege and we have a duty to make it in such a way that we can help bring pleasure and a sense of fulfillment to those who are not so fortunate. #Quote by Herbert Von Karajan
Fortunate quotes by Naomi Campbell
#58. I do feel that I'm talking to someone who's in a totally different place from where I was when I started modeling. I was fortunate enough to have the wonderful designers and amazing photographers around me, and editors that I knew, and if I wanted to ask a question, I asked them. So that gap has broadened a bit. #Quote by Naomi Campbell
Fortunate quotes by Chuck Zito
#59. See, I'm fortunate that I get around a lot because of my movie business. #Quote by Chuck Zito
Fortunate quotes by John Mark Reynolds
#60. Austen knew nothing of our modern quest for equality. People are not numbers, and so they are never "equal." Some folk are higher placed than others, have more money, were more fortunate in their parents, or are brighter. These gifts do not come to us by merit but by the unfathomable providence of God. #Quote by John Mark Reynolds
Fortunate quotes by Harry Reid
#61. I understand that during [Sonia Sotomayor's] career, she's written hundreds and hundreds of opinions. I haven't read a single one of them, and if I'm fortunate before we end this, I won't have to read one of them. #Quote by Harry Reid
Fortunate quotes by James Salter
#62. Man was very fortunate to have invented the book. Without it, the past would completely vanish, and we would be left with nothing, we would be naked on earth. #Quote by James Salter
Fortunate quotes by Vince McMahon
#63. I'm a real common sense guy who caught a lot of good breaks and who has been very, very fortunate. #Quote by Vince McMahon
Fortunate quotes by Michael Brewer
#64. It's an insidious twist of thought that leads one to demand women to give up their reproductive rights to force unwanted pregnancies but then, once birthed from the womb, to deny them access to basic necessities required for even a mediocre life like education, clean air, healthcare, and a fair wage. And these people have the audacity to call their position pro-life.

These same people who bemoan the welfare state, yet refuse to require business to honor a fair wage, appear to want to create the very circumstances that they ceaselessly complain about. I dare say that by perpetuating this condition, by feeding the apparatus of poverty, they are satiating their narcissism.

With poverty securely entrenched, these lucky few can sit back and smile with smug superiority. Because of course, they pulled themselves up by their bootstraps, they worked harder, and they have earned what they have. It's a meritocracy, they say, if only by merit of their parent's color of flesh or social standing.

So yes, let's churn out more children who will be unable to claw their way out of poverty, and if they just happen to defy the odds, let's brainwash them into believing this tripe called the American Dream so they will assist us as we throw their less fortunate fortunate siblings into the hungry machine of conservatism. Because we are really only interested in conserving the status quo. #Quote by Michael Brewer
Fortunate quotes by Josh Hutcherson
#65. I was very fortunate and didn't personally encounter any bullies in school, however bullies exist in many ways in life. #Quote by Josh Hutcherson
Fortunate quotes by Will Rogers
#66. If your Income Taxes go to help out the less fortunate, there could be no legitimate kick against it in the world. This is becoming the richest, and the poorest Country in the world. Why? Why, on account of an unequal distribution of the money. #Quote by Will Rogers
Fortunate quotes by George Sheehan
#67. The true runner is a very fortunate person. He has found something in him that is just perfect. #Quote by George Sheehan
Fortunate quotes by Dale T. Mortensen
#68. Although labor income is by far the largest component of gross national product, a job is not just a commodity. For many, work is an important reason for living. Even for those who are less fortunate in their allocation of work, being unemployed is a miserable state. #Quote by Dale T. Mortensen
Fortunate quotes by Dave Eggers
#69. But we're no longer rain, I said, we're no longer seeds. We're men. Now we can stand and decide. This is our first chance to choose our own unknown. I'm so proud of everything we've done, my brothers, and if we're fortunate enough to fly and land again in a new place, we must continue. As impossible as it sounds, we must keep walking. And yes, there has been suffering, but now there will be grace. There has been pain, but now there will be serenity. No one has been tried the way we have been tried, and now this is our reward. #Quote by Dave Eggers
Fortunate quotes by Washington Gladden
#70. When any duty is to be done, it is fortunate for you if you feel like doing it; but, if you do not feel like it, that is no reason for not doing it. #Quote by Washington Gladden
Fortunate quotes by Anastasia Nil
#71. Bad experiences in life make you really appreciate the wonderful ones we are fortunate to have. Let's embrace this moment we've been given and cherish it for life. #Quote by Anastasia Nil
Fortunate quotes by Barbara Moses
#72. Do you feel you are doing something important or that you care about deeply? Do the content and challenges associated with your work enthrall you? Do you often find yourself surprised by how much time has flown by when you are working? Do you feel passionate about your work? If you have answered yes to one or more of these questions, you are in the fortunate position of being fully engaged by your work. #Quote by Barbara Moses
Fortunate quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#73. I don't understand these people anymore, that travel the commuter-trains to their dormitory towns. These people that call themselves human, but, by a pressure they do not feel, are forced to do their work like ants. With what do they fill their time when they are free of work on their silly little Sundays? I am very fortunate in my profession. I feel like a farmer, with the airstrips as my fields. Those that have once tasted this kind of fare will not forget it ever. Not so, my friends? #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Fortunate quotes by Eugene O'Neill
#74. I mean supposing we - the self-satisfied, successful members of society - are responsible for the injustice visited upon the heads of our less fortunate "brothers-in­Christ" because of our shameful indifference to it. We see misery all around us and we do not care. We do nothing to prevent it. Are we not then, in part at least, responsible for it? Have you ever thought of that? #Quote by Eugene O'Neill
Fortunate quotes by Confucius
#75. That a man lives is because he is straight. That a man who dupes others survives is because he has been fortunate enough to be spared. #Quote by Confucius
Fortunate quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#76. Homo sapiens [are] a tiny twig on an improbable branch of a contingent limb on a fortunate tree. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Fortunate quotes by Novalis
#77. Almost all genius up to now was one-sided - the result of a sickly constitution. One type had too much sense of the external, the other too much inner sense. Seldom could nature achieve a balance between the two - a complete constitution of genius. Often a perfect proportion arose by chance, but this could never endure because it was not comprehended and fixed by the spirit - they remained fortunate moments. The first genius that penetrated itself found here the exemplary germ of an immeasurable world. It made a discovery which must have been the most remarkable in the history of the world - for with it there begins a whole new epoch for humanity - and true history of all kinds becomes possible for the first time at this stage - for the way that had been traversed hitherto now makes up a proper whole that can be entirely elucidated. That point outside the world is given, and now Archimedes can fulfill his promise. #Quote by Novalis
Fortunate quotes by Isaac Slade
#78. I can't really speak for the guys, but for me, I think I want a build a longer-term career and I feel like we've been really fortunate to have some big success with a few things, but I want smaller success with more things. #Quote by Isaac Slade
Fortunate quotes by Laura Huxley
#79. At one time or another the more fortunate among us make three startling discoveries. Discovery number one: Each one of us has, in varying degree, the power to make others feel better or worse. Discovery two: Making others feel better is much more fun than making them feel worse. Discovery three: Making others feel better generally makes us feel better. #Quote by Laura Huxley
Fortunate quotes by Jen Turano
#80. It was fortunate she loved him because he really was an idiot. #Quote by Jen Turano
Fortunate quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#81. Pandora had no idea how fortunate she was that he didn't insist on sending her out with a bodyguard of assorted marksmen, cavalry, Scottish archers, and a few Japanese samurai thrown in for hood measure. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Fortunate quotes by Ronaldinho
#82. Football is a great love because I was born into a family of players and therefore born into football. I'm fortunate to have a style of play that a lot of people like. It's a privilege to be able to do what I like best and in my own way, but I'm fortunate that people like it, and that motivates me even more. #Quote by Ronaldinho
Fortunate quotes by Stephen Baldwin
#83. It's a blessing because the Baldwin vibe on the street is what I live for the most. I think our name is something that a lot of people get a good feeling about and brings a smile to their face, and we're very fortunate. #Quote by Stephen Baldwin
Fortunate quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#84. There could be nothing more fortunate for human affairs than that by the mercy of God they who are endowed with true piety of life if they have the skill for ruling people should also have the power. #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo
Fortunate quotes by David Brooks
#85. I think the Republican budget priorities are messed up. I salute for the way they're attacking some of the entitlement programs, but they are taking huge cuts, by pretending they're just block-granting it to the states, out of Medicaid, from the least fortunate. #Quote by David Brooks
Fortunate quotes by Robert Irvine
#86. When you first get into television it is a big deal, then you realize you are no better than anyone else, we just have a platform to use, to help other people. I use that platform for the work I do in the military, the work I do with cancer because I was fortunate enough to get that platform. #Quote by Robert Irvine
Fortunate quotes by Osayi Emokpae Lasisi
#87. Whatever it is you are really desiring, give it away. If it's companionship, give it to someone else, and just listen to them and be there. If it's money, give it to someone who is less fortunate. If it's encouragement, give it to others. If it's friendship, become the best friend you can be to others. If it's time, serve others with your time. You will be amazed to see how much more of everything you have when you are willing to freely give. #Quote by Osayi Emokpae Lasisi
Fortunate quotes by Sarah Kane
#88. Hippolytus: Do you believe in God?
Priest: (Looks at him.)
Hippolytus: I know what I am. And always will be. But you. You sin knowing you'll confess. Then you're forgiven. And then you start all over again.
How do you dare mock a God so powerful? Unless you don't really believe.
Priest: This is your confession, not mine.
Hippolytus: Then why are you on your knees? God certainly is merciful. If I were him I'd despise you. I'd wipe you off the face of the earth for your dishonesty.
Priest: You're not God.
Hippolytus: No. A prince. God on earth. But not God. Fortunate for all concerned. I'd not allow you to sin knowing you'd confess and get away with it.
Priest: Heaven would be empty.
Hippolytus: A kingdom of honest men, honestly sinning. And death for those who try to cover their arse. #Quote by Sarah Kane
Fortunate quotes by Jeri Smith-Ready
#89. This time of year," she said, "people's consciences gnaw at them. They give away truckloads of canned goods and quote Dickens and wring their hands over the 'less fortunate.'" We boarded the Metro and took seats perpendicular to each other. "But God forbid anyone should address why they're poor in the first place, or try to change the structures that keep them poor. Then the 'less fortunate' turn into 'welfare queens' and 'derelicts.' But if I were a lobbyist whoring on behalf of some transnational corporation, I'd never hear the word 'derelict.'"

"So when it comes to taking care of poor people," I said, "if Mother Teresa is the Hallmark card, then you're the electric bill. #Quote by Jeri Smith-Ready
Fortunate quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#90. Some may be more fortunate than others, and many might feel more like second bests, not sure how to survive. Not seeing the light on their path, they keep on living with fear. Albeit social security systems may be supportive existential anxiety subsists, crushing their identity. Only by converting 'fear' into a challenge, we can grit our teeth, strengthen resilience, and brighten up the dimness in our minds. ("A new life with Schengen"") #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Fortunate quotes by Wallace Stegner
#91. She has had no role in my life except to keep me sane, fed, housed, amused, and protected from unwanted telephone calls, also to restrain me fairly frequently from making a horse's ass of myself in public, to force me to attend to books and ideas from which she knows I will learn something; also to mend my wounds when I am misused by the world, to implant ideas in my head and stir the soil around them, to keep me from falling into a comfortable torpor, to agitate my sleeping hours with problems that I would not otherwise attend to; also to remind me constantly (not by precept but by example) how fortunate I have been to live for fifty-three years with a woman that bright, alert, charming, and supportive. #Quote by Wallace Stegner
Fortunate quotes by Brad Thor
#92. I've got more ideas for books than I'll ever be able to use in my lifetime. I'm very fortunate like that. #Quote by Brad Thor
Fortunate quotes by Gabrielle Aplin
#93. I still love records, and I've been fortunate that my parents bought me a record player so I didn't just have my vinyls to stare at! #Quote by Gabrielle Aplin
Fortunate quotes by Jerry Garcia
#94. We were very fortunate to have a a little time in history when LSD was still legal and were able to experiment with drugs just like we were doing with music. #Quote by Jerry Garcia
Fortunate quotes by Rodney Atkins
#95. Where I'm fortunate and why I think I've thrived and survived, through the not having albums out every year-and-a-half, is not taking the songs lightly and trying to make sure I've got consistency. #Quote by Rodney Atkins
Fortunate quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#96. I view the major features of my own odyssey as a set of mostly fortunate contingencies. I was not destined by inherited mentality or family tradition to become a paleontologist. I can locate no tradition for scientific or intellectual careers anywhere on either side of my eastern European Jewish background. [ ... ] I view my serious and lifelong commitment to baseball in entirely the same manner: purely as a contingent circumstance of numerous, albeit not entirely capricious, accidents. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Fortunate quotes by Lisa Bonet
#97. When I was 16 I was fortunate enough to get Cosby and move to New York and shift my whole life. that had been my dream all along, and it came true. #Quote by Lisa Bonet
Fortunate quotes by Mindy Warshaw Skolsky
#98. I could not help but think how fortunate we are when we have real friends, people we can count on and turn to and who are always glad to see us when we are lonely. #Quote by Mindy Warshaw Skolsky
Fortunate quotes by Francis Ford Coppola
#99. I think it's better to be overly ambitious and fail than to be underambitious and succeed in a mundane way. I have been very fortunate. I failed upward in my life! #Quote by Francis Ford Coppola
Fortunate quotes by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
#100. Celebrate Life. Care for others and share whatever you have with those less fortunate than you. Broaden your vision, for the whole world belongs to you. #Quote by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Fortunate quotes by Adolf Hitler
#101. From early youth I endeavored to read books in the right way and I was fortunate in having a good memory and intelligence to assist me. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Fortunate quotes by Gina Holden
#102. I've been fortunate to play many different types of characters thus far. However, I really enjoy playing roles that are different than who I am personally. You can have these small fantasy worlds where you can be people you would otherwise never get to be: a doctor, a lawyer, a ruthless business woman. #Quote by Gina Holden
Fortunate quotes by Kirk Cameron
#103. I've been fortunate that I can be selective enough to do acting when it's really furthering what I want to do with my life. #Quote by Kirk Cameron
Fortunate quotes by Patricia A. McKillip
#104. It's an odd thing, happiness. Some people take happiness from gold. Or black pearls. And some of us, far more fortunate, take their happiness from periwinkles. #Quote by Patricia A. McKillip
Fortunate quotes by Ashleigh Banfield
#105. If I have been fortunate enough to have risen to a level in this business where people would actually listen to me, then I think I have a duty to convey all truths that I encounter. #Quote by Ashleigh Banfield
Fortunate quotes by Georgette Heyer
#106. After all, when one approaches Middle Age ... "
"Middle Age? Has anyone ever boxed your ears Miss Thane?"
"No, never," said Miss Thane, looking blandly up at him.
"You have been undeservedly fortunate," said Sir Tristram grimly. #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Fortunate quotes by Helen Keller
#107. Many of us delude ourselves with the thought that if we could stand in the lot of our more fortunate neighbor, we could live better, happier and more useful lives ... It is my experience that unless we can succeed in our present position, we could not succeed in any other. #Quote by Helen Keller
Fortunate quotes by Peter Hoeg
#108. Some girls are fortunate enough to be in love with deep and intelligent boys," she says. "And then there's the rest of us, who have to make do. #Quote by Peter Hoeg
Fortunate quotes by Vita Sackville-West
#109. Gardening is a luxury occupation: an ornament, not a necessity, of life ... Fortunate gardener, who may preoccupy himself solely with beauty in these difficult and ugly days! He is one of the few people left in this distressful world to carry on the tradition of elegance and charm. A useless member of society, considered in terms of economics, he must not be denied his rightful place. He deserves to share it, however humbly, with the painter and poet. #Quote by Vita Sackville-West
Fortunate quotes by Michael Beck
#110. To be involved with movies that become kind of cult classics ... I've been very fortunate. 'The Warriors' is certainly a cult classic, and 'Xanadu' is, to a certain degree, a cult classic as well. #Quote by Michael Beck
Fortunate quotes by Miroslav Volf
#111. God's gifts aim at making us into generous givers, not just fortunate receivers. God gives so that we, in human measure, can be givers too. #Quote by Miroslav Volf
Fortunate quotes by O.R. Melling
#112. I was fortunate in that I attended university in Canada in the early 1970s when you could take a true liberal arts degree with no programmes, majors or minors. #Quote by O.R. Melling
Fortunate quotes by Pierce Brosnan

Fortunate quotes by Alexa Vega
#115. You always hear these stories of people who grew up in Hollywood, and they're like, 'We lost our childhood.' But I was very fortunate. #Quote by Alexa Vega
Fortunate quotes by Meeran W. Malik
#116. We are all like that ocean, spread thousands of miles away and there is just one lighthouse, the only lighthouse. fortunate are ones who get to see it. some even at the nearest edge are blinded by the storm and some at the furthest can see it crystal clear and some make an effort to save them-self, to find a destination. The closest ones were the lucky ones who made them-self unlucky. The lighthouse is not just a guide for the ocean but everything around even for the flying birds. #Quote by Meeran W. Malik
Fortunate quotes by John Webster
#117. 'Tis better to be fortunate than wise. #Quote by John Webster
Fortunate quotes by Louise Penny
#118. In a life filled with great good fortune of health, of creativity, of friends, living in safety and privilege with the loving partner. There was just one bit of misfortune in his life and that was that Peter Morrow seemed to have no idea how very fortunate he was. #Quote by Louise Penny
Fortunate quotes by Brad Duguid
#119. Ontario is fortunate to have the expertise, insight and leadership of The Honourable David C. Onley. I look forward to working with him to promote an inclusive, accessible Ontario that will help strengthen our province's economy. #Quote by Brad Duguid
Fortunate quotes by Dontrelle Willis
#120. Win or lose, I've been fortunate to be able to pitch deep enough into games to get decisions. #Quote by Dontrelle Willis
Fortunate quotes by Eowyn Ivey
#121. Who am I to claim such boundless sorrow? This heartache, acute and true as it may be, is slight compared to all of this world. Five miscarriages, two stillborn, three live births, and Mrs. Connor is one of our fortunate. She is not disemboweled in the snow. Her hands have committed no atrocities. She believes in God.
It is remarkable how we go on. All that we come to know and witness and endure, yet our hearts keep beating, our faith persists. #Quote by Eowyn Ivey
Fortunate quotes by Olivia Newton-John
#122. I feel so fortunate and grateful to be a survivor of breast cancer. I see it as a gift. #Quote by Olivia Newton-John
Fortunate quotes by Logan Lerman
#123. I don't really look around and say, 'I've made it.' I just look around and think how fortunate I am to work with the people I'm working with. #Quote by Logan Lerman
Fortunate quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#124. You see, I have never felt the need to invent a world beyond this world, for this world has always seemed large and beautiful enough for me. I have wondered why it is not large and beautiful enough for others
why they must dream up new and marvelous spheres, or long to live elsewhere, beyond this dominion ... but that is not my business. We are all different, I suppose. All I ever wanted was to know this world. I can say now, as I reach my end, that I know quite a bit more of it than I knew when I arrived. Moreover, my little bit of knowledge has been added to all the other accumulated knowledge of history
added to the great library, as it were. That is no small feat, sir. Anyone who can say such a thing has lived a fortunate life. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Fortunate quotes by Condoleezza Rice
#125. I hope that all of us who were fortunate enough to have benefited will put our time, our resources and our efforts into making sure that kids, particularly kids without means, have a way to achieve. #Quote by Condoleezza Rice
Fortunate quotes by James Castleton, MD, Mending Of A Broken Heart
#126. The less fortunate will never have what they need until we who are more fortunate realize how little we require to be happy. #Quote by James Castleton, MD, Mending Of A Broken Heart
Fortunate quotes by Robert Longo
#127. If you're fortunate enough with your history, like with Men in the Cities, your work becomes so absorbed in culture that the authorship of it doesn't exist anymore. #Quote by Robert Longo
Fortunate quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#128. Strange how in some way one always has the impression of being fortunate, how some chance happening perhaps infinitesimal, stops us crossing the threshold of despair and allows us to live. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Fortunate quotes by L. Frank Baum
#129. Thoughtless people are not unusual," observed the Scarecrow, "but I consider them more fortunate than those who have useless or wicked thoughts and do not try to curb them. Your oil can, friend Woodman, is filled with oil, but you only apply the oil to your joints, drop by drop, as you need it, and do not keep spilling it where it will do no good. Thoughts should be restrained in the same way as your oil, and only applied when necessary, and for a good purpose. If used carefully, thoughts are good things to have. #Quote by L. Frank Baum
Fortunate quotes by Chang-rae Lee
#130. It seems I have always been fortunate to be in a certain provident, which must be my sole skill, and worth, and luck. [p. 138] #Quote by Chang-rae Lee
Fortunate quotes by Michael Owen
#131. I have been very fortunate in that my career has taken me on a journey I could only have dreamed of. #Quote by Michael Owen
Fortunate quotes by Rumi
#132. Within people there is a longing and a desire such that, even if a hundred thousand worlds were theirs to own, still they would find no rest or comfort. They try every trade and craft, studying astronomy, medicine and every other subject, but they reach no completion, for they have not found their true desire. Poets call the Beloved "heart's ease," because there the heart finds ease. How can we find peace and rest in anything but the Beloved?
All these pleasures and pursuits are like a ladder. The rungs of a ladder are not a place to make one's home; they are for passing by. Fortunate are those who learn this. The long road becomes short for them, and they do not waste their lives upon the steps. #Quote by Rumi
Fortunate quotes by Thomas Keneally
#133. His wife, Emilie, still lived, without any financial help from him, in her little house in San Vicente, south of Buenos Aires. She lives there at the time of the writing of this book. As she was in Brinnlitz, she is a figure of quiet dignity. In a documentary made by German television in 1973, she spoke - without any of the abandoned wife's bitterness or sense of grievance - about Oskar and Brinnlitz, about her own behavior in Brinnlitz. Perceptively, she remarked that Oskar had done nothing astounding before the war and had been unexceptional since. He was fortunate, therefore, that in that short fierce era between 1939 and 1945 he had met people who summoned forth his deeper talents. #Quote by Thomas Keneally
Fortunate quotes by Matt Nix
#134. I am fortunate in that I am motivated to do what I do by just a really goofy desire to do it. Maybe I have demons that are hidden away someplace, and I'll discover mine someday. #Quote by Matt Nix
Fortunate quotes by Warren G. Bennis
#135. Neoteny is more than retaining a youthful appearance, although that is often part of it. Neoteny is the retention of all those wonderful qualities that we associate with youth: curiosity, playfulness, eagerness, fearlessness, warmth, energy. Unlike those defeated by time and age, our geezers have remained much like our geeks – open, willing to take risks, hungry for knowledge and experience, courageous, eager to see what the new day brings. Time and lost steal the zest from the unlucky, and leave them looking longingly at the past. Neoteny is a metaphor for the quality – and the gift – that keeps the fortunate of whatever age focused on all marvelous undiscovered things to come. #Quote by Warren G. Bennis
Fortunate quotes by Marquis De Sade
#136. Never lose sight of the fact that all human felicity lies in man's imagination, and that he cannot think to attain it unless he heeds all his caprices. The most fortunate of persons is he who has the most means to satisfy his vagaries. #Quote by Marquis De Sade
Fortunate quotes by Richard Flanagan
#137. I had some bad jobs when I was young. Writing is not one of them. If you're fortunate enough to reach my age, to still be writing, you have to be grateful, and I am. I've been lucky. For many years, all I've done is writing, and it's all I've ever wanted to do. #Quote by Richard Flanagan
Fortunate quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#138. If you have no one, you are poor; if you have an acquaintance, you are fortunate; if you have a friend, you are privileged; if you have a lover, you are rich; if you have a soulmate, you are wealthy. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Fortunate quotes by Michelle MacLaren
#139. I've been very fortunate to have the opportunity to work on wonderful shows. #Quote by Michelle MacLaren
Fortunate quotes by Neil Patrick Harris
#140. Rather than ignore those who choose to publish their opinions without actually talking to me, I am happy to dispel any rumors or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love. #Quote by Neil Patrick Harris
Fortunate quotes by Tony Blair
#141. What Dad taught me above all else, and did so utterly unconsciously, was why people like him became Tories. He had been poor. He was working class. He aspired to be middle class. He worked hard, made it on his merits, and wanted his children to do even better than him. He thought – as did many others of his generation – that the logical outcome of this striving, born of this attitude, was to be a Tory. Indeed, it was part of the package. You made it; you were a Tory: two sides of the same coin. It became my political ambition to break that connection, and replace it with a different currency. You are compassionate; you care about those less fortunate than yourself; you believe in society as well as the individual. You can be Labour. You can be successful and care; ambitious and compassionate; a meritocrat and a progressive. These are entirely compatible ways of making sure progress happens; and they answer the realistic, not utopian, claims of human nature. #Quote by Tony Blair
Fortunate quotes by John Updike
#142. I never heard enough damnation from your pulpit. Many mornings I had to strain to take hold of what you were saying, Reverend. I couldn't figure it out, and got dizzy listening, the way you were dodging here and there. A lot of talk about compassion for the less fortunate, I remember that. Never a healthy sign, to my way of thinking, too much fuss and feathers about the poor. They're with us always, the Lord Himself said. Wait till the next go-around, if the poor feel so sorry for themselves on this. The first shall be last. Take away damnation, in my opinion, a man might as well be an atheist. A God that can't damn a body to an eternal Hell can't lift a body up out of the grave either. #Quote by John Updike
Fortunate quotes by Peter Dinklage
#143. So I won't say I'm lucky. I'm fortunate enough to find or attract very talented people. For some reason I found them, and they found me. #Quote by Peter Dinklage
Fortunate quotes by Rob Delaney
#144. We can and should complain about certain horrors of the modern world, but when it comes to the treatment of mental illness, the advances made in the last hundred years have been far more significant than the space program, nuclear fission, or even The Wire, for so many fortunate people. #Quote by Rob Delaney
Fortunate quotes by Grace Paley
#145. I was fortunate that by the time I was born, there were a lot of comforts and at the same time I lived in a neighborhood where it was brought to my eyes every single day that people didn't live like me. Every day I knew that many of my friends "got relief." That was important in my thinking about the world, thinking that not everybody lived that way. #Quote by Grace Paley
Fortunate quotes by Thomas Tull
#146. We just believe in what we make and we're in a very fortunate position to be able to make stuff regardless of what model that follows. #Quote by Thomas Tull
Fortunate quotes by Billy Corgan
#147. My view of the world is always tempered by the fact that there are people who are less fortunate than I am. #Quote by Billy Corgan
Fortunate quotes by Helen Hollick
#148. There is the type of woman you love for your need and the type you need because of your love. The two are not the same, and only the fortunate manage to find the second. Most of us have to make do with the first. #Quote by Helen Hollick
Fortunate quotes by Stephen Lang
#149. The idea of being in a television series is a wonderful one to be considered, but you want to make sure it's the right thing for you because if you are fortunate enough to have something go for a long term, you want to make sure that it's something that you really want to be spending a bulk of your time on. #Quote by Stephen Lang
Fortunate quotes by Stephanie Kwolek
#150. [At DuPont,] I was very fortunate that I worked under men who were very much interested in making discoveries and inventions. They were very much interested in what they were doing, and they left me alone. And I was able to experiment on my own, and I found this very stimulating. It appealed to the creative person in me. #Quote by Stephanie Kwolek
Fortunate quotes by Richard Russo
#151. Don't even the best and most fortunate of lives hint at other possibilities, at a different kind of sweetness and, yes, bitterness too? Isn't this why we can't help feeling cheated, even when we know we haven't been? #Quote by Richard Russo
Fortunate quotes by Alexander Ludwig
#152. When I was doing a movie called 'The Seeker,' I was fortunate enough to be able to do a lot of my own stunts. #Quote by Alexander Ludwig
Fortunate quotes by Gugu Mbatha-Raw
#153. I don't really want to just play the girlfriend or the love interest. I get so many scripts like that, and - not to moan, because I'm really fortunate - but I just look at those scripts, and my heart sinks a little bit because I think there's so much more to us than that. #Quote by Gugu Mbatha-Raw
Fortunate quotes by Marv Albert
#154. I feel very fortunate that I'm doing what I wanted to do from the third grade on. I became very interested in the sports broadcasting aspect even at that early age. I'd turn down the sound on the TV and do games in my house - and probably get everybody looking for me to go into a room and lock the door so they didn't have to hear it. #Quote by Marv Albert
Fortunate quotes by Julie Andrews
#155. I was lucky enough to be the lady that was asked to be Maria in the Sound Of Music, and that film was fortunate enough to be huge hit. The same with Mary Poppins. I got terribly lucky in that respect. #Quote by Julie Andrews
Fortunate quotes by Condoleezza Rice
#156. We've been a country that's been fortunate to be protected by two oceans, to not have serious attacks on our territory for most of our history. And we were unfortunately reminded in a very devastating way of our vulnerability. #Quote by Condoleezza Rice
Fortunate quotes by Michele Tafoya
#157. I feel so fortunate, Because some people think, well you're just relegated to the sideline. But I feel valued there. They trust me. We work very, very hard at making it worthwhile. We are not going to just be down there spewing a bunch of blah. With our halftime talking to the coaches we are really trying to get something meaningful there and something that helps spin the game forward. #Quote by Michele Tafoya
Fortunate quotes by Jerome Isaac Friedman
#158. Experimental high energy physics research is a group effort. I have been very fortunate to have had outstanding students and colleagues who have made invaluable contributions to the research with which I have been associated. #Quote by Jerome Isaac Friedman
Fortunate quotes by Spike Lee
#159. I am very fortunate I can send my kids to private school, but everybody does not have the money. If you cannot get your kid in a good school today, your kids are going to be behind the eight ball. #Quote by Spike Lee
Fortunate quotes by Carl Sagan
#160. Spaceflight, therefore, is subversive. If they are fortunate enough to find themselves in orbit, most people, after a little meditation, have similar thoughts. The nations that had instituted spaceflight had done so largely for nationalistic reasons; it was a small irony that almost everyone who entered space received a startling glimpse of a transnational perspective, of the Earth as one world. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Fortunate quotes by Rebecca    Donovan
#161. How fortunate are we to be able to touch someone we've never met, inspire with words and invoke emotion with the flip of a page. #Quote by Rebecca Donovan
Fortunate quotes by Oliver Platt
#162. You know I feel very fortunate that my life has turned out the way that it has - whatever that means - I mean ... you know, to say that I would be glad would mean that I planned it. #Quote by Oliver Platt
Fortunate quotes by Bob Seger
#163. I do try to go home as much as possible after each show. I've got my own plane. I'm very fortunate. #Quote by Bob Seger
Fortunate quotes by Rib Hillis
#164. I was very fortunate. I had a great group of friends in my life, and family, and so I felt a sense of safety and belonging that ... as you grow older, you realize that not everybody does feel that. And there's particular certain groups of kids who always feel like outsiders. But I was very fortunate. #Quote by Rib Hillis
Fortunate quotes by Disturbed
#165. In an age of nothing,
at time when we stand at the brink of our own destruction.

Strengthen your belief in yourself,
in the future of humanity,
in the things of this world which cannot easily be percieved,
awaken that which lies dormant now within your soul.

Re-ignite the flame of your consciousness,
and measure the strength of your conviction.

Reveal the lie,
renounce your hatred.

Seek, find and embrace the truths
you are fortunate enough to discover.

Cherish them,
use them to anchor you in the sea of chaos that is the world we live in.

When twilight drwas near,
when you are pushed to the very limits of your soul,
when it seems that all you have left are the dead remnants
of the fabric of your life...

Believe. #Quote by Disturbed
Fortunate quotes by Guy De Rothschild
#166. Since I'm fortunate enough to be neither hesitant nor indecisive, I've always made a point of consulting my partners and associates whenever a major decision has to be made. This is not to say that I have always been right! #Quote by Guy De Rothschild
Fortunate quotes by Karl Enrst Von Baer
#167. Many others will win a prize. But the palm will be won by the fortunate man for whom it is reserved to trace the formative forces of the animal body back to the general forces that direct the life of the universe. #Quote by Karl Enrst Von Baer
Fortunate quotes by Jane Lindskold
#168. Something else changed when querinalo changed. Our immortality began to become - it is difficult to explain. None of us began to age, nor did we lose our vitality. Rather it was as if what was resilient within us began to stiffen. Traits of character became not merely habits, but defining elements. I suppose for me that it was fortunate - or unfortunate, given my current situation as your prisoner - that one of my defining traits has always been curiosity. Curiosity is one of the seeds of creativity, so that remained to me as well, but many of my associates were less fortunate.
"Remember that Virim recruited us all because we shared a certain idealism. However, I fear that not much time needs to pass for idealism to become dogmatism. This was the case for many of my associates. They became dogmatic, but not regarding the same things."
Firekeeper wondered what dogs had to do with ideas, but thought she understood. Dogs, like wolves, were pack animals, but unlike wolves, dogs retained a juvenile desire to follow. So these spellcasters had been Virim's dogs, and when this stiffening happened, they had become even more doglike. It made sense in a way. #Quote by Jane Lindskold
Fortunate quotes by Al Barr
#169. We just do what we do, we're grateful every night when there's people in front of the stage and singing our songs back at us. We're all fortunate to be able to be doing this for a living, so we're just grateful to be here and we just do what we do and we let the people decide. #Quote by Al Barr
Fortunate quotes by Samuel Barnett
#170. I feel like I've gotten more than a lot of people will ever get. I feel very fortunate. #Quote by Samuel Barnett
Fortunate quotes by M.Padua
#171. If you want to love God, love the less-fortunate one. If you want to see God, look through the eyes of a hungry child. #Quote by M.Padua
Fortunate quotes by John Fowles
#172. He stared to sea. I gave up all ideas of practicing medicine. In spite of what I have just said about the wave and the water, in those years in France I am afraid I lived a selfish life. That is, I offered myself every pleasure. I traveled a great deal. I lost some money dabbling in the theatre, but I made much more dabbling on the Bourse. I gained a great many amusing friends, some of whom are now quite famous. But I was never very happy. I suppose I was fortunate. It took me only five years to discover what some rich people never discover - that we all have a certain capacity for happiness and unhappiness. And that the economic hazards of life do not seriously affect it. #Quote by John Fowles
Fortunate quotes by Jimmie Johnson
#173. I've been very fortunate to dodge a nickname throughout my entire career. I've never had one. #Quote by Jimmie Johnson
Fortunate quotes by Susan Estrich
#174. Prior to working for Fox, I worked for ABC and NBC, spent a lot of time at CNN, and almost ended up at CBS. I worked for a bunch of local stations in Los Angeles and had a talk-radio show at KABC for six years. In other words, I'm fortunate enough to have been around, and Fox News is the best place I've ever worked. #Quote by Susan Estrich
Fortunate quotes by Voltaire
#175. Everything I see about me is sowing the seeds of a revolution that is inevitable, though I shall not have the pleasure of seeing it. The lightning is so close at hand that it will strike at the first chance, and then there will be a pretty uproar. The young are fortunate, for they will see fine things. #Quote by Voltaire
Fortunate quotes by Phil Collins
#176. I just don't think of myself as a star. This is what I do for a living; I'm fortunate that I make ends meet. #Quote by Phil Collins
Fortunate quotes by Bernard Goldstein
#177. Many environmental threats in the twenty-first century will coincide with the dying out of the post-World War II baby boomers. Future historians may call them the fortunate generation. Their fortune was to have been born after the discovery of penicillin, to have lived in an age of selfish overconsumption of resources, and to have died before the oil ran out. #Quote by Bernard Goldstein
Fortunate quotes by Michelle Franklin
#178. Teaching a man how to clean barnacles from a keel is an amazing useful talent, one any child should be fortunate to learn. Magochiro is our champion barnaclebully at present. String him under a keel, and he will bring back dinner enough for ten. #Quote by Michelle Franklin
Fortunate quotes by Solon
#179. The New Dimension is peaceful, and all work here just as they do on Earth. It's a place where learning, knowledge and wisdom are essential to that work.
It is not corrupt like the Earth Plane, and there they are free from all of the corruption that exists on Earth today.
We created this New Dimension for growing and learning, as we did Earth.
Minds here are advanced, as the knowledge that was acquired on Earth is now attuned to the minds of New Dimension souls.
It is a slow process for all souls' minds to learn and absorb knowledge and wisdom.
Love is the answer for all kinds of souls to advance in the Universe. Through love, knowledge and wisdom are well earned.
Critical thinking, the Earth Plane has gotten off track, forgetting or ignoring this most important key to progress.
We all here in the Universe is working so hard with Earth souls to remind them that their purpose on Earth is to advance.
First, they must love themselves if they are going to love all of those around them, if they are going to love other souls, if they are going to help less fortunate souls with love and kindness. All of this is part of Earth lessons they must learn.
Once this is understood, we will attain peace of soul and mind…
Progress is all that matters in the Universe! #Quote by Solon
Fortunate quotes by Willie Nelson
#180. God has blessed you richly, so get down on your knees and thank him. Don't forget the less fortunate or God will personally kick your ass. I'd love to do it for him, but I can't be everywhere. #Quote by Willie Nelson
Fortunate quotes by John C. Maxwell
#181. If you don't love where you are right now, you won't love where you are going. Here is what I know: People who are passionate about what they do every day and love where they are in life are the fortunate ones. They have discovered their purpose. They are the difference makers who fully understand the gift of adding value, and yes, they can't help but love where they are going on their journey. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
Fortunate quotes by Adam Riess

Fortunate quotes by America Ferrera
#183. I am incredibly, incredibly fortunate about the opportunities I've had. But at the same time, I've had plenty of opportunities to screw it up, too. Sometimes the most powerful thing you can say is 'No ... ' and not feel the need to do everything. It's about doing what rings true to me. #Quote by America Ferrera
Fortunate quotes by Claudia Schiffer

Fortunate quotes by Andrew Luck
#186. I think I feel fortunate to have been very well educated in terms of strength and training while I was at school at Stanford, and I think our strength coaches here on the Colts do a great job. A big part of being able to withstand hits is making sure that you've got a good base. #Quote by Andrew Luck

Fortunate quotes by David Blunkett

Fortunate quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#189. Shall I have the carriage readied in time for you to catch the late morning train?"
"I'm afraid you won't be that fortunate." West took a swallow of tea. "I can't go back to London. I have to stay in Hampshire until I've met with all the tenants I had planned to visit."
"Mr. Ravenel--"
"I have to," he said doggedly. "My brother never asks anything of me. Which is why I'll do this even if it kills me."
Kathleen glanced at him in surprise. "Very well," she said after a moment. "Shall we send for Mr. Carlow to accompany you?"
"I rather hoped that you would go with me." Seeing her expression, West added warily, "Only for today."
"Mr. Carlow is far more familiar with the tenants and their situations--"
"His presence may prove to be inhibiting. I want them to speak to me frankly." He glared at his plate. "Not that I expect more than a half-dozen words from any of them. I know what that sort thinks of me: a city toff. A great useless peacock who knows nothing about the superior virtues of farm life."
"I don't think they'll judge you severely, so long as they believe that you're not judging them. Just try to be sincere, and you should have no difficulty."
"I have no talent for sincerity," West muttered.
"It's not a talent," Kathleen said. "It's a willingness to speak from your heart, rather than trying to be amusing or evasive."
"Please," West said tersely. "I'm already nauseous." Scowling, he took another bite of the bacon sandw #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Fortunate quotes by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
#190. When he overheard the boys whispering that he was a queer, he said he regarded that as a compliment since so many of the world's great men had been homosexual. Alas, I've been sentenced to a life mundane heterosexuality. I can only hope that a few of you will be more fortunate. #Quote by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Fortunate quotes by Robert Black
#191. When considering female human beings, we should ask ourselves what kind of organisms become overjoyed when presented with decapitated plants as gifts? I suppose we should consider ourselves fortunate they do not become overjoyed when presented with decapitated animals as gifts. #Quote by Robert Black
Fortunate quotes by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
#192. While earning your daily bread, be sure you share a slice with those less fortunate. #Quote by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Fortunate quotes by Alexander Solschenizyn
#193. Oh, "what an intelligent, farsighted humane administration from top to bottom," as Supreme Court Judge Leibowitz of New York State wrote in Life magazine, after having visited Gulag. "In serving out his term of punishment the prisoner retains a feeling of dignity." That is what he comprehended and saw.

Oh, fortunate New York State, to have such a perspicacious jackass for a judge!

And oh, you well-fed, devil-may-care, nearsighted, irresponsible foreigners with your notebooks and your ball-point pens - beginning with those correspondents who back in Kem asked the zeks questions in the presence of the camp chiefs - how much you have harmed us in your vain passion to shine with understanding in areas where you did not grasp a lousy thing! #Quote by Alexander Solschenizyn
Fortunate quotes by Patrick Wilson
#194. I'm an actor who wants to do great parts, and I've been very fortunate, for a long time, to get meaty roles, and sometimes some of them are meatier than others. #Quote by Patrick Wilson
Fortunate quotes by Cassandra Clare
#195. What a pretty dress," Ariadne said to Cordelia, her voice warm. Her own gown was of flattering wine-colored silk. "I believe that's the shade they call 'ashes of roses.' Very popular in Paris."
"Oh, yes," Cordelia said eagerly. She'd known so few girls growing up - just Lucie, really - so how did one impress them and charm them? It was desperately important. "I did get this dress in Paris, as a matter of fact. On Rue de la Paix. Jeanne Paquin made it herself."
She saw Lucie's eyes widen in concern. Rosamund's lips tightened. "How fortunate you are," she said coolly. "Most of us here in the poky little London Enclave rarely get to travel abroad. You must think us so dull."
"Oh," said Cordelia, realizing she had put her foot in it. "No, not at all - "
"My mother has always said Shadowhunters aren't meant to have much of an interest in fashion," said Catherine. "She says it's mundane."
"Since you've spoken of Matthew's clothes admiringly so often," said Ariadne tartly, "should we assume that rule is only for girls? #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Fortunate quotes by Will Durant
#196. History is, above all else, the creation and recording of that heritage; progress is its increasing abundance, preservation, transmission, and use. To those of us who study history not merely as a warning reminder of man's follies and crimes, but also as an encouraging remembrance of generative souls, the past ceases to be a depressing chamber of horrors; it becomes a celestial city, a spacious country of the mind, wherein a thousand saints, statesmen, inventors, scientists, poets, artists, musicians, lovers, and philosophers still live and speak, teach and carve and sing. The historian will not mourn because he can see no meaning in human existence except that which man puts into it; let it be our pride that we ourselves may put meaning into our lives, and sometimes a significance that transcends death. If a man is fortunate he will, before he dies, gather up as much as he can of his civilized heritage and transmit it to his children. And to his final breath he will be grateful for this inexhaustible legacy, knowing that it is our nourishing mother and our lasting life. #Quote by Will Durant
Fortunate quotes by Herodotus
#197. Many exceedingly rich men are unhappy, but many middling circumstances are fortunate. #Quote by Herodotus
Fortunate quotes by Frank Herbert
#198. The more I find out, the more I realize that I don't know what's going on."
"How fortunate that you have discovered the way of wisdom," Leto said. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Fortunate quotes by Seamus Heaney
#199. Now it's high watermark
and floodtide in the heart
and time to go.
The sea-nymphs in the spray
will be the chorus now.
What's left to say?
Suspect too much sweet-talk
but never close your mind.
It was a fortunate wind
that blew me here. I leave
half-ready to believe
that a crippled trust might walk
and the half-true rhyme is love. #Quote by Seamus Heaney
Fortunate quotes by Stephen King
#200. Jake stood on the corner of Second and Forty-sixth, looking at a board fence about five feet high. Tears were streaming down his cheeks. From the darkness beyond the fence cam a strong harmonic humming. The sound of many voices, all singing together. Singing one vast open note. 'Here is yes,' the voices said. 'Here is you may. Here is the good turn, the fortunate meeting, the fever that broke just before dawn and left your blood calm. Here is the wish that came true and the understanding eye. Here is the kindness you were given and thus learned to pass on. Here is the sanity and clarity you thought were lost. Here, everything is all right. #Quote by Stephen King
