Fortune quotes by B.C. Forbes
#1. Which is more worthwhile earning: a large fortune or the esteem and gratitude of the nation? This question is prompted anew by the death of ex-Secretary of the Interior [Franklin K.] Lane. He remained in public service, doing most noble work, until his means became absolutely exhausted, and he died before having had the opportunity to reaccumulate any bank account ... He died leaving no estate whatsoever. Is what he did leave more to be desired, more to be coveted, than a fortune reaching into six or seven figures? #Quote by B.C. Forbes
Fortune quotes by Mark Steyn
#2. The British accomplished much with little; at the height of empire, an insignificant number of Anglo-Celts controlled the entire Indian subcontinent. A confident culture can dominate far larger numbers of people, as England did for much of modern history. By contrast, in an era of Massively Applied Desultoriness, we spend a fortune going to war with one hand tied behind our back ... So on we stagger, with Cold War institutions, transnational sensibilities, politically correct solicitousness, fraudulent preening pseudo-nation building, expensive gizmos, little will, and no war aims ... but real American lives. #Quote by Mark Steyn
Fortune quotes by Jonathan Tropper
#3. Life, for the most part, inevitably becomes routine, the random confluence of timing and fortune that configures its components all but forgotten. But every so often, I catch a glimpse of my life out of the corner of my eye, and am rendered breathless by it. #Quote by Jonathan Tropper
Fortune quotes by Donald Trump
#4. Mexico's making a fortune off the United States. #Quote by Donald Trump
Fortune quotes by Robert Jackson Bennett
#5. Peace is but the absence of war. War and conflict form the sea through which nation-states swim. Some who have had the fortune to find clear, calm waters believe otherwise. They have forgotten that war is momentum. War is natural. And war makes one strong. #Quote by Robert Jackson Bennett
Fortune quotes by Sir Charles Sedley, 5th Baronet
#6. Lovers, like dying men, may well
At first disorder'd be,
Since none alive can truly tell
What Fortune they must see. #Quote by Sir Charles Sedley, 5th Baronet
Fortune quotes by Sharad Vivek Sagar
#7. I sometimes wonder how powerful are those Fortune 500 CEOs who can can't even change the way that list looks (leave aside how the world looks). And, I wonder what message do we send to our young girls, in classrooms across the world, who work as hard as our young boys but see only 20 CEOs out of those 500 who look like them. #Quote by Sharad Vivek Sagar
Fortune quotes by Johan Huizinga
#8. When the world was half a thousand years younger all events had much sharper outlines than now. The distance between sadness and joy, between good and bad fortune, seemed to be much greater than for us; every experience had that degree of directness and absoluteness which joy and sadness still have in the mind of a child #Quote by Johan Huizinga
Fortune quotes by Jeremy Collier
#9. Intemperance is a dangerous companion. It throws many people off their guard, betrays them to a great many indecencies, to ruinous passions, to disadvantages in fortune; makes them discover secrets, drive foolish bargains, engage in play, and often to stagger from the tavern to the stews. #Quote by Jeremy Collier
Fortune quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#10. It is my bad luck that this has happened to me.' No, you should rather say: 'It is my good luck that, although this has happened to me, I can bear it without pain, neither crushed by the present not fearful of the future.' Because such a thing could have happened to any man, but not every man could have borne it without pain. So why see more misfortune in the event than good fortune in your ability to bear it? #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Fortune quotes by Philippa Gregory
#11. Say yes,' he whispers. 'Marry me.'

I hesitate. I open my eyes. 'You will get my fortune,' I remark. 'When I marry you, everything I have becomes yours. Just as George has everything that belongs to Isabel.'

'That's why you can trust me to win it for you,' he says simply. 'When your interests and mine are the same, you can be certain that I will care for you as for myself. You will be my own. You will find that I care for my own.'

'You will be true to me?'

'Loyalty is my motto. When I give my word, you can trust me. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Fortune quotes by L.L. Barkat
#12. One Bagatelle, and I'll raise you a novel," Megan had tweeted back.
"Writing for tea? Now that would have been a solution for the British empire," Laura returned.
"Writing for me," Megan had typed.
"I'll write you a tea fortune."
"No deal. I want a novel. September sounds good. #Quote by L.L. Barkat
Fortune quotes by Karen Hawkins
#13. Bloody hell, what did he hit me with? An anvil?"
"His fist."
"You should put that fool in a bear-baiting pit. You'd make a fortune." Dougal struggled to rise.
Sophia helped him on one side, Mary slipping under his other arm.
The wind swirled a bit harder, sending dust into the air.
"Heavens!" Mary said, glancing over their heads at the sky. "That's the third thunderhead as has passed this way today."
Sophia turned. A huge bank of thunderclouds hung overhead, roiling as if alive.
"We should get inside," she said uneasily.
Dougal didn't even glance at the clouds as he held a hand over his bruised eye and cheek. "Bloody hell, I can barely see. #Quote by Karen Hawkins
Fortune quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#14. Do not you see that every misfortune is misconduct; that every honour is desert; that every effort is an insolence of your own? ... You carry your fortune in your own hand. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Fortune quotes by David Lynch
#15. So much of what happened to me is good fortune. But I would say: Try to get a job that gives you some time; get your sleep and a little bit of food; and work as much as you can. There's so much enjoyment in doing what you love. Maybe this will open doors, and you'll find a way to do what you love. #Quote by David Lynch
Fortune quotes by Hazrat Ali Ibn Abu-Talib
#16. So long as fortune is favouring you, your defects will remain covered. #Quote by Hazrat Ali Ibn Abu-Talib
Fortune quotes by Terry Pratchett
#17. And what are you doing on it, I would like to know? Running away from home, yesno? If you were a boy I'd say are you going to seek your fortune?"
"Can't girls seek their fortune?"
"I think they're supposed to seek a boy with a fortune. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Fortune quotes by Jane Austen
#18. The Musgroves had had the ill fortune of a very troublesome, hopeless son, and the good fortune to lose him before he reached his twentieth year. #Quote by Jane Austen
Fortune quotes by Aldous Huxley
#19. You got rid of them. Yes, that's just like you. Getting rid of everything unpleasant instead of learning to put up with it. Whether 'tis better in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles and by opposing end them… But you don't do either. Neither suffer nor oppose. You just abolish the slings and arrows. It's too easy. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Fortune quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#20. Fortune is said to be blind, but her favorites never are. Ambition has the eye of the eagle, prudence that of the lynx; the first looks through the air, the last along the ground. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Fortune quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#21. Under capitalism everybody is the architect of his own fortune. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Fortune quotes by Boethius
#22. One's virtue is all that one truly has, because it is not imperiled by the vicissitudes of fortune. #Quote by Boethius
Fortune quotes by Marcel Proust
#23. It is a mistake," Labruyère tells us, "to be in love without an ample fortune. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Fortune quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#24. You think you're a very clever fellow, don't you?" Saldur challenged.
"No, Your Grace," Merrick replied. "Clever is the man who makes a fortune selling dried-up cows, explaining how it saves the farmers the trouble of getting up every morning to milk them. I'm not clever - I'm a genius. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Fortune quotes by Ulrich Von Hutten
#25. This is treachery, to change faith in accord with shifting fortune. The justice of my cause impelled me to withstand even adverse circumstance. #Quote by Ulrich Von Hutten
Fortune quotes by J.T. Geissinger
#26. One of the first shrinks I went to after Cass died told me that the brain has a hardwired need to find correlations, to make sense of nonsensical data by making connections between unrelated things. Humans have evolved a universal tendency to seek patterns in random information, hence the existence of fortune-tellers and dream interpreters and people who see the face of Jesus in a piece of toast. But the cold, hard truth is that there are no connections between anything. Life - all of existence - is totally random. Your lucky lottery numbers aren't really lucky, because there's no such thing as luck. The black cat that crosses your path isn't a bad omen, it's just a cat out for a walk. An eclipse doesn't mean that the gods are angry, just as a bus narrowly missing you as you cross the street doesn't mean there's a guardian angel looking out for you. There are no gods. There are no angels. Superstitions aren't real, and no amount of wishing, praying, or rationalizing can change the fact that life is just one long sequence of random events that ultimately have no meaning. I really hated that shrink. #Quote by J.T. Geissinger
Fortune quotes by Sasha Graham
#27. I hope you find your truth and when you do, you stand in the middle of it strong, beautiful and nimble like the World dancer. Because when the Fool followed her own path and trusted herself, she found herself in the World. And by the time she did, she was so high on the music-so enraptured by the dancing, so lost in the beauty, so in tune with herself, and so filled with magic-she didn't even realize she's arrived at her destination. #Quote by Sasha Graham
Fortune quotes by Andre Dubus III
#28. One of the accidental joys of my writing life has been that I've had some lovely, surprisingly good fortune with readers, and I've brought readers to my dad's work. I can't tell you the joy that gives me. Because my father's work was masterful. #Quote by Andre Dubus III
Fortune quotes by David Friedman
#29. I fought for years and spent a fortune fighting and never got anywhere. #Quote by David Friedman
Fortune quotes by Robert Burns
#30. Fortune, if thou'll but gie me still
Hale breeks, a scone, an whisky gill,
An' rowth o' rhyme to rave at will,
Take a' the rest,
An' deal't about as thy blind skill
Directs thee best. #Quote by Robert Burns
Fortune quotes by Pam Munoz Ryan
#31. A library is a temple unabridged with priceless treasure. Librarians are the majesties who loan the jewels of measure. They welcome to the kingdom the young and old of reapers and reign among the riches as the wondrous fortune keepers. #Quote by Pam Munoz Ryan
Fortune quotes by Horace
#32. He who is always in a hurry to be wealthy and immersed in the study of augmenting his fortune has lost the arms of reason and deserted the post of virtue. #Quote by Horace
Fortune quotes by Ogwo David Emenike
#33. If your failure is not a lesson, it's indeed a failure. #Quote by Ogwo David Emenike
Fortune quotes by Josephine Pollard
#34. The wheel goes round and round, some are up and some are on the down, and still the wheel goes round. #Quote by Josephine Pollard
Fortune quotes by Greg Laurie
#35. You will be tested as a leader ... You may be tested with success, fame, and fortune. #Quote by Greg Laurie
Fortune quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#36. I think if you wanted a peaceful marriage and orderly household, you should have proposed to any one of the well-bred simpletons who've been dangled in front of you for years. Ivo's right: Pandora is a different kind of girl. Strange and marvelous. I wouldn't dare predict-" She broke off as she saw him staring at Pandora's distant form. "Lunkhead, you're not even listening. You've already decided to marry her, and damn the consequences."
"It wasn't even a decision," Gabriel said, baffled and surly. "I can't think of one good reason to justify why I want her so bloody badly."
Phoebe smiled, gazing toward the water. "Have I ever told you what Henry said when he proposed, even knowing how little time we would have together? 'Marriage is far too important a matter to be decided with reason.' He was right, of course."
Gabriel took up a handful of warm, dry sand and let it sift through his fingers. "The Ravenels will sooner weather a scandal than force her to marry. And as you probably overheard, she objects not only to me, but the institution of marriage itself."
"How could anyone resist you?" Phoebe asked, half-mocking, half-sincere.
He gave her a dark glance. "Apparently she has no problem. The title, the fortune, the estate, the social position... to her, they're all detractions. Somehow I have to convince her to marry me despite those things." With raw honesty, he added, "And I'm damned if I even know who I am outside of them."
"Oh, my dear..." Ph #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Fortune quotes by Dion Fortune
#37. To say that a thing is imaginary is not to dispose of it in the realm of mind, for the imagination, or the image making faculty, is a very important part of our mental functioning. An image formed by the imagination is a reality from the point of view of psychology; it is quite true that it has no physical existence, but are we going to limit reality to that which is material? We shall be far out of our reckoning if we do, for mental images are potent things, and although they do not actually exist on the physical plane, they influence it far more than most people suspect. #Quote by Dion Fortune
Fortune quotes by Aeschylus
#38. For not many men, the proverb saith, can love a friend whom fortune prospereth unenvying. #Quote by Aeschylus
Fortune quotes by Marie Corelli
#39. I attribute my good fortune to the simple fact that I have always tried to write straight from my own heart to the hearts of others. #Quote by Marie Corelli
Fortune quotes by Charlotte Bingham
#40. Giving away a fortune is taking Christianity too far. #Quote by Charlotte Bingham
Fortune quotes by Walt Whitman
#41. I do not seek good fortune - I am good fortune! #Quote by Walt Whitman
Fortune quotes by Hjalmar Soderberg
#42. We want everything, we want to be everything. We want to experience all the joys of good fortune and the full depths of suffering. We want the excitement of action and the calm of observation. We want the silence of the desert as well as the noise of the forum. Simultaneously we want to be the hermit´s thought and the voice of the people; we want to be both melody and harmony. Simultaneously! How could this be possible? #Quote by Hjalmar Soderberg
Fortune quotes by Kafka Asagiri
#43. Night has fallen, and morning will come too," Kenji said while gazing at the paddy field. "Spring will arrive, and Autumn too. Everything is split in halves. The grass grows, trees wither, animals are born, and they die……when you live with the land, you slowly come to understand that nature is made up of halves. When something bad happens……when a storm or erosion happens, we feel like bad things will only continue. But in truth, the good and the bad, they are all part of nature……part of living. That's how everyone in the village thinks."

"I do not understand," Akutagawa said, looking at the same scenery. "So fortune and misfortune are equal halves? Do you want to say the same thing to my comrades who died in the slums?"

"That is why you're the half that's left, Akutagawa-san." Kenji looked at Akutagawa. "You survived. And with a very powerful Ability, too. Everybody passed on their good halves to you, I'm sure. #Quote by Kafka Asagiri
Fortune quotes by Henry Every
#44. Come, don't be in a fright, but put on your clothes, and I'll let you into a secret. You must know that I am Captain of this ship now, and this is my cabin, therefore you must walk out. I am bound to Madagascar, with a design of making my own fortune, and that of all the brave fellows joined with me ... if you have a mind to make one of us, we will receive you, and if you'll turn sober, and mind your business, perhaps in time I may make you one of my Lieutenants, if not, here's a boat alongside and you shall be set ashore. #Quote by Henry Every
Fortune quotes by Robert Fortune
#45. A small species of pinus was much prized, and, when dwarfed in the manner of the Chinese, fetched a very high price; it is generally grafted on a variety of the stone pine. #Quote by Robert Fortune
Fortune quotes by Chris Matakas
#46. I am acutely aware that all I have been able to achieve has been in large part due to circumstances outside my control. This is why I teach, and this is why I write. I want to be one of those opportunities for others. Perhaps this is the true measure of success. #Quote by Chris Matakas
Fortune quotes by John Connolly
#47. I believe in those whom I love and trust. All else is foolishness. This god is as empty as his church. His followers choose to attribute all of their good fortune to him, but when he ignores their pleas or leaves them to suffer, they say only that he ignores their pleas or leaves them to suffer, they say only that he is beyond their understanding and abandon themselves to his will. What kind of god is that? #Quote by John Connolly
Fortune quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#48. What offended you this time? His charming manner? His too broad smile? His well-groomed appearance?"
"I don't like him," she said with her usual maddening half-smile.
"Don't like him! He's fashionable and handsome, with fortune to spare-"
"So is my reticule. Unfortunately, it also has more personality, and nearly as much intelligence. #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Fortune quotes by Timothy Thomas Fortune
#49. We must learn to lean upon ourselves; we must learn to plan and execute business enterprises of our own; we must learn to venture our pennies if we would gain dollars. #Quote by Timothy Thomas Fortune
Fortune quotes by Anne McCaffrey
#50. When bad fortune occurs, the unresourceful, unimaginative man looks about him to attach the blame to someone else; the resolute accepts misfortune and endeavors to survive, mature, and improve because of it. #Quote by Anne McCaffrey

Fortune quotes by Pat Tillman
#54. So use all that is called fortune. Most men gamble with her, and gain all and lose all, as her wheel rolls ... A political victory, a rise of rents, the recovery of your sick or the return of your absent friend, or some other favorable event raises your spirits, and you think good days are preparing for you. Do not believe it. Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles. #Quote by Pat Tillman
Fortune quotes by Seneca
#55. Why do we complain of Nature? She has shown herself kindly; life, if you know how to use it, is long. But one man is possessed by an avarice that is insatiable, another by a toilsome devotion to tasks that are useless; one man is besotted with wine, another is paralyzed by sloth; one man is exhausted by an ambition that always hangs upon the decision of others, another, driven on by the greed of the trader, is led over all lands and all seas by the hope of gain; some are tormented by a passion for war and are always either bent upon inflicting danger upon others or concerned about their own; some there are who are worn out by voluntary servitude in a thankless attendance upon the great; many are kept busy either in the pursuit of other men's fortune or in complaining of their own; many, following no fixed aim, shifting and inconstant and dissatisfied, are plunged by their fickleness into plans that are ever new; some have no fixed principle by which to direct their course, but Fate takes them unawares while they loll and yawn - so surely does it happen that I cannot doubt the truth of that utterance which the greatest of poets delivered with all the seeming of an oracle: "The part of life we really live is small."5 For all the rest of existence is not life, but merely time. Vices beset us and surround us on every side, and they do not permit us to rise anew and lift up our eyes for the discernment of truth, but they keep us down when once they have overwhelmed us and we are c #Quote by Seneca
Fortune quotes by J.A. Huss
#56. I cry long rivers of regret, but with every new breath, I am secretly thankful for my good fortune. #Quote by J.A. Huss
Fortune quotes by Curtis Sittenfeld
#57. In my expectation that good fortune will lead inextricably to its reversal, I should note that I don't think I'm less deserving of happiness than anyone else; it is that in an unequal world, nobody deserves the privileges I enjoy. #Quote by Curtis Sittenfeld
Fortune quotes by Richard Steele
#58. Nothing is more silly than the pleasure some people take in "speaking their minds." A man of this make will say a rude thing for the mere pleasure of saying it, when an opposite behavior, full as innocent, might have preserved his friend, or made his fortune. #Quote by Richard Steele
Fortune quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#59. Fortune comes well to all that comes not late. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Fortune quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#60. There is an old Greek saying that men are tormented not by things themselves but by what they think about them. If that assertion could be proved to be always true everywhere it would be an important point gained of the comforting of our wretched human condition. For if ills can only enter us through our judgemente it would seem to be in our power either to despise them or to deflect them towards the good: if the things actually do trow themselves on our mercy why do we not act as their masters and accomodate them to our advantage? If what we call evil or torment are only evil or torment insofar as our mental apprehension endows them with those qualities when it lies within our power to change those qualities. And if we did have such a choice and were free from constraint we would be curiously mad to pull in the direction which hurst us most, endowing sickness, poverty or insolence with a bad and bitter taste when we could give them a pleasent one, Fortune simply furnishing us with the matter and leaving it to us to supply the form. Let us see whether a case can be made for what we call evil not being an evil in itself or (since it amounts to the same) whether at least it is up to us to endow it with a different savour and aspect. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Fortune quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#61. I seek to sensitize and clarify the essential elements of my soul. I will leave striving for the flags of fame and fortune behind and go where the soul beckons without fearing the decisive outcome. I will travel in a world without boundaries and embrace danger and awe. I will stand as a witness to comedy, beauty, and tragedy and apply the principles of artistic and ascetic forms of awareness to overcome the inherent frustration of enduring a fundamentally painful human existence. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Fortune quotes by Lao-Tzu
#62. Upon disaster depends good fortune;
within good fortune hides disaster.
Where will it end?
For nothing is certain;
what is correct goes astray;
what is right goes wrong.
Our confusion goes on and on. #Quote by Lao-Tzu
Fortune quotes by Charles Bukowski
#63. When a writer is swayed with his fame and his fortune, you can float him down the river with the turds. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Fortune quotes by Helene Cixous
#64. I wished that that woman would write and proclaim this unique empire so that other women, other unacknowledged sovereigns, might exclaim: I, too, overflow; my desires have invented new desires, my body knows unheard-of songs. Time and again I, too, have felt so full of luminous torrents that I could burst-burst with forms much more beautiful than those which are put up in frames and sold for a stinking fortune. And I, too, said nothing, showed nothing; I didn't open my
mouth, I didn't repaint my half of the world. I was ashamed. I was afraid, and I swallowed my shame and my fear. I said to myself: You are
mad! #Quote by Helene Cixous
Fortune quotes by Ulysses S. Grant
#65. It was my fortune, or misfortune, to be called to the office of Chief Executive without any previous political training. #Quote by Ulysses S. Grant
Fortune quotes by Roland Gift
#66. I jumped off the wheel of fortune because I wanted to simplify things. Now I've fulfilled my obligations to myself by making my new record. I'd like it to sell millions of copies, but my self - worth is not based on chart positions. #Quote by Roland Gift
Fortune quotes by Jane Austen
#67. That the Musgroves had had the ill fortune of a very troublesome, hopeless son; and the good fortune to lose him before he reached his twentieth year; that he had been sent to sea, because he was stupid and unmanageable on shore; that he had been very little cared for at any time by his family, though quite as much as he deserved; seldom heard of, and scarcely at all regretted ... He had, in fact, though his sisters were now doing all they could for him, by calling him 'poor Richard,' been nothing better than a thick-headed, unfeeling, unprofitable Dick Musgrove, who had never done anything to entitle himself to more than the abbreviation of his name, living or dead. #Quote by Jane Austen
Fortune quotes by Mindy McCready
#68. I've spent my fortune, tarnished my public view and made myself the brunt of punch line after punch line. #Quote by Mindy McCready
Fortune quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#69. Fortune never appears so blind as to those to whom she does no good. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Fortune quotes by Bill Gates
#70. A first-generation fortune is the most likely to be given away, but once a fortune is inherited it's less likely that a very high percentage will go back to society. #Quote by Bill Gates
Fortune quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#71. But if you will not take this Counsel, and persist in thinking a Commerce with the Sex inevitable, then I repeat my former Advice, that in all your Amours you should prefer old Women to young ones. You call this a Paradox, and demand my Reasons. They are these:

1. Because as they have more Knowledge of the World and their Minds are better stor'd with Observations, their Conversation is more improving and more lastingly agreable.

2. Because when Women cease to be handsome, they study to be good. To maintain their Influence over Men, they supply the Diminution of Beauty by an Augmentation of Utility. They learn to do a 1000 Services small and great, and are the most tender and useful of all Friends when you are sick. Thus they continue amiable. And hence there is hardly such a thing to be found as an old Woman who is not a good Woman.

3. Because there is no hazard of Children, which irregularly produc'd may be attended with much Inconvenience.

4. Because thro' more Experience, they are more prudent and discreet in conducting an Intrigue to prevent Suspicion. The Commerce with them is therefore safer with regard to your Reputation. And with regard to theirs, if the Affair should happen to be known, considerate People might be rather inclin'd to excuse an old Woman who would kindly take care of a young Man, form his Manners by her good Counsels, and prevent his ruining his Health and Fortune among mercenary Prostitutes.

Fortune quotes by John Maynard Keynes
#75. In this autumn of 1919, in which I write, we are at the dead season of our fortunes. #Quote by John Maynard Keynes
Fortune quotes by James Kelman
#76. Ninety-nine per cent of traditional English literature concerns people who never have to worry about money at all. We always seem to be watching or reading about emotional crises among folk who live in a world of great fortune both in matters of luck and money; stories and fantasies about rock stars and film stars, sporting millionaires and models; jet-setting members of the aristocracy and international financiers. #Quote by James Kelman
Fortune quotes by Sunil Gavaskar
#77. India's fortune will depend on how many runs the little champion scores. There is no doubt Tendulkar is the real thing. #Quote by Sunil Gavaskar
Fortune quotes by Liezi
#78. When we are rich and famous and powerful, we do not want to die. On the other hand, if we are miserable and suffering, we want to die and leave it all. But can joy or misery last forever? There is a saying, "All celebrations must end sometime." Any wish to live forever or die immediately is often a whim of the moment. How do we know that, although we are happy now, we may not be sad the next day, or sad now but may be happy soon? Given that good and ill, fortune and misfortune come in their own way, we should not cling to life or embrace death. Life and death will come of their own. Why be greedy about life and afraid of death? #Quote by Liezi
Fortune quotes by Ken Kesey
#79. The story is told that when Joe was a child his cousins emptied his Christmas stocking and replaced the gifts with horse manure. Joe took one look and bolted for the door, eyes glittering with excitement. 'Wait, Joe, where are you going? What did ol' Santa bring you?' According to the story Joe paused at the door for a piece of rope. 'Brought me a bran'-new pony but he got away. I'll catch 'em if I hurry.' And ever since then it seemed that Joe had been accepting more than his share of hardship as good fortune, and more than his share of shit as a sign of Shetland ponies just around the corner, Thoroughbred stallions just up the road. #Quote by Ken Kesey

Fortune quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#81. One does not jump, and spring, and shout hurrah! at hearing one has got a fortune, one begins to consider responsibilities, and to ponder business; on a base of steady satisfaction rise certain grave cares, and we contain ourselves, and brood over our bliss with a solemn brow. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Fortune quotes by Lorraine Heath
#82. ...fortune was a fickle mistress. #Quote by Lorraine Heath
Fortune quotes by Henry James
#83. She was a young person of many theories; her imagination was remarkably active. It had been her fortune to possess a finer mind than most of the persons among whom her lot was cast; to have a larger perception of surrounding facts, and to care for knowledge that was tinged with the unfamiliar...It may be affirmed without delay that She was probably very liable to the sin of self-esteem; she often surveyed with complacency the field of her own nature; she was in the habit of taking for granted, on scanty evidence, that she was right; impulsively, she often admired herself...Every now and then she found out she was wrong, and then she treated herself to a week of passionate humility. After this she held her head higher than ever again; for it was of no use, she had an unquenchable desire to think well of herself. She had a theory that it was only on this condition that life was worth living; that one should be one of the best, should be conscious of a fine organization, should move in the realm of light, of natural wisdom, of happy impulse, of inspiration gracefully chronic. #Quote by Henry James
Fortune quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#84. It requires greater virtues to support good fortune than bad. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Fortune quotes by Kathryn Smith
#85. My requirements in a husband are simple," she informed him smoothly. "All I want is a man who will hold me above everything else, including his horse, his fortune, and his pride."
Hearing that simple yet seemingly impossible declaration was like a blow to Grey's solar plexus. She was going to be so disappointed, the poor thing. How perverted was it of him to secretly rejoice over her wants? She might find a man who could love her more than his horse, perhaps even more than his fortune, but never would she find a man willing to sacrifice his pride-not without that same man coming to hate her for it eventually.
"More than his horse?" he joked. "My dear girl, you ask too much. #Quote by Kathryn Smith
Fortune quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#86. A person must escape artificial constraints and unfold the myth of their own being. There is only one path for a thinking person in life, and that is to assume the role of a compassionate observer. I can only achieve personal freedom – liberty of the mind, body, and soul – by stop worrying about how other people perceive me and no longer judge myself in terms of fame and fortune. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Fortune quotes by Aldous Huxley
#87. The Savage nodded, frowning. "You got rid of them. Yes, that's just like you. Getting rid of everything unpleasant instead of learning to put up with it. Whether 'tis better in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows or outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles and by opposing end them ... But you don't do either. Neither suffer nor oppose. You just abolish the slings and arrows. It's too easy."
... "What you need," the Savage went on, "is something with tears for a change. Nothing costs enough here. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Fortune quotes by Irwin Shaw
#88. You must avoid giving hostages to fortune, like getting an expensive wife, an expensive house, and a style of living that never lets you aford the time to take the chance to write what you wish. #Quote by Irwin Shaw
Fortune quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#89. General propositions – universal laws governing human thinking and human existence – leave room for many individualistic permutations. How shall I survive the specter of tomorrow, what is my life plan, and how will I come to terms with the finite lives of all humankind? How do I heal seeping internal wounds that lacerations weaken personal resolve? A person whom avoids seeking fame and fortune and engages in contemplative thought will enjoy a heightened state of existence. My survival hinges upon shedding the shackles of modern time's economic rigors; seeking penance through heartfelt contrition; accepting a vision quest devoid of wanting; rejoicing in my budding curiosity; loving nature; giving breath to living without fear and apprehension; and eliminating any form of want or angst from my cerebral being. Unshackling myself from the burdens of the past – guilt, remorse, anger, and petty resentments – is part of the healing process. The other part of a rehabilitation prescription is declaring free rein to live in the present one moment at a time. After all, humankind is the only member of the animal kingdom that walks this earth with the foreknowledge of its ultimate demise, but why would any person allow information pertaining to our personal fate ruin a perfectly good walk in nature's woodlands with our fellow creatures? #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Fortune quotes by Wilson Mizner
#90. I've had ample contact with lawyers, and I'm convinced that the only fortune they ever leave is their own. #Quote by Wilson Mizner
Fortune quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#91. I often felt we lived in a lighted house of glass, and that any moment some thin-lipped parchment face would peer through a carelessly unshaded window to obtain a free glimpse of things that the most jaded voyeur would have paid a small fortune to watch. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Fortune quotes by Patti Stanger
#92. I was a VP of marketing, I was regional sales manager in fashion, and marketing director in communications and product development. I was always a corporate Fortune 500 girl. #Quote by Patti Stanger
Fortune quotes by Charles De Lint
#93. She shrugged. Everybody makes the same mistake. Fortune-telling doesn't reveal the future; it mirrors the present. It resonates against what your subconscious already knows and hauls it up out of the darkness so that you can get a good look at it. #Quote by Charles De Lint
Fortune quotes by Boethius
#94. The greatest misery in adverse fortune is once to have been happy. #Quote by Boethius
Fortune quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#95. Far be it for me to have worked it out in any abstract way. I don't know why the bull and Mrs. May have to die, or why Mr. Fortune and Mary Fortune: I just feel in my bones that that is the way it has to be. If I had the abstraction first I don't suppose I would write the story. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Fortune quotes by Margaret George
#96. Fortune offers you opportunities to create; she does not hand you presents. #Quote by Margaret George
Fortune quotes by Samuel Richardson
#97. You know not the value of the heart you have insulted ... You, sir, I thank you, have lowered my fortunes: but, I bless God, that my mind is not sunk with my fortunes. It is, on the contrary, raised above fortune, and above you[.] #Quote by Samuel Richardson
Fortune quotes by Shirley Rousseau Murphy
#98. If it occurred to Thursey that there was really no relationship between marrying your own true love and having a fortune showered upon you, she didn't bother about that. In a story you might as well have both, it was make-believe anyway.
But if I had to choose, she thought. If I had to choose ... she stared at her ragged dress hanging from its hook, and her ragged mended sandals on the shelf, then put the books away. How would I ever have such a choice, except in a made-up story? #Quote by Shirley Rousseau Murphy
Fortune quotes by Haruki Murakami
#99. Pills and fortune-telling and dieting: nobody can stop her when it comes to any of those things. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Fortune quotes by Marisha Pessl
#100. Millions of people walked through their lives numb, dying to feel something, to feel alive. To be chosen by Cordova for a film was an opportunity for just that, not simply for fame and fortune, but to leave their old selves behind like discarded clothes. #Quote by Marisha Pessl
Fortune quotes by Robert Fortune
#101. Sometimes, as is the case of peach and plum trees, which are often dwarfed, the plants are thrown into a flowering states, and then, as they flower freely year after year, they have little inclination to make vigorous growth. #Quote by Robert Fortune
Fortune quotes by Alexander MacLaren
#102. Self-preservation is not a man's first duty: flight is his last. Better and wiser and infinitely nobler to stand a mark for the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" and to stop at our post though we fall there, better infinitely to toil on, even when toil seems vain, than cowardly to keep a whole skin at the cost of a wounded conscience or despairingly to fling up work, because the ground is hard and the growth of the seed imperceptible. Prudent advices, when the prudence is only inspired by sense, are generally foolish. #Quote by Alexander MacLaren
Fortune quotes by Thomas Campion
#103. Fortune, honour, beauty, youth,
Are but blossoms dying;
Wanton pleasures, doting love,
Are but shadows flying. #Quote by Thomas Campion
Fortune quotes by William Boyd
#104. To live as an artist requires hard work or some extraordinary good fortune to come your way. #Quote by William Boyd
Fortune quotes by Maelle Gavet
#105. The Priceline Group is a truly globally-scaled digital e-commerce Fortune 500 company operating world-class brands. I look forward to contributing to the Group by identifying new opportunities and operating synergies that enhance its already strong track record as a global digital pioneer. #Quote by Maelle Gavet
Fortune quotes by Jill Alexander Essbaum
#106. Events don't always obey rules of time and space. Sometimes the mere thought of a certain friend will cause her to telephone after months of no communication. Or perhaps a man wonders whether he should leave his wife and in the next instant he turns on the radio and hears a notice for apartments. No coincidence is a chance. Synchronicity is the external manifestation of reality. #Quote by Jill Alexander Essbaum
Fortune quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#107. Further, the constitution of our consciousness is the ever present and lasting element in all we do or suffer; our individuality is persistently at work, more or less, at every moment of our life: all other influences are temporal, incidental, fleeting, and subject to every kind of chance and change. This is why Aristotle says: It is not wealth but character that lasts.
And just for the same reason we can more easily bear a misfortune which comes to us entirely from without, than one which we have drawn upon ourselves; for fortune may always change, but not character. Therefore, subjective blessings - a noble nature, a capable head, a joyful temperament, bright spirits, a well-constituted, perfectly sound physique, in a word, mens sana in corpore sano, are the first and most important elements in happiness; so that we should be more intent on promoting and preserving such qualities than on the possession of external wealth and external honor. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Fortune quotes by Timothy Thomas Fortune
#108. It is not safe in the republican form of government that clannishness should exist either by compulsory or voluntary reason. It is not good for the government and it is not good for the individual. #Quote by Timothy Thomas Fortune

Fortune quotes by Amanda Hocking
#110. A foolish man thinks he knows everything. A wise man knows he doesn't," Finn replied absently, still looking down at the book.
"That's such a fortune-cookie answer," I said with a laugh, and even he smirked at me. #Quote by Amanda Hocking
Fortune quotes by Tom Brokaw
#111. Our friend, Timothy J. Russert, was a man who awoke every morning as if he had just won the lottery the day before. He was determined to take full advantage of his good fortune that he couldn't quite believe and share it with everyone around him. #Quote by Tom Brokaw
Fortune quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#112. Without doubt, princes become great when they overcome the difficulties and obstacles by which they are confronted, and therefore fortune, especially when she desires to make a new prince great, who has a greater necessity to earn renown than an hereditary one, causes enemies to arise and form designs against him, in order that he may have the opportunity of overcoming them, and by them to mount higher, as by a ladder which his enemies have raised. For this reason, many consider that a wise prince, when he has the opportunity, ought with craft to foster some animosity against himself so that, having crushed it, his renown may rise higher. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Fortune quotes by Choi Yoon-young
#113. One line on the arm, one line on the heart. The bastards who stood by my side with two lines. They'll be the hardest farewells I'll have to make in my life and they're the luckiest fortune I've met in my lifetime. #Quote by Choi Yoon-young
Fortune quotes by Petrarch

Fortune quotes by Chael Sonnen
#115. Listen Wanderlei, I will do a home invasion on you. I will cut the power to your house and the next thing you'll hear is me climbing up your stairs in a pair of night vision goggles I bought in the back of Soldier of Fortune magazine. I'll pick the lock to the master room door, take a picture of you in bed with the Nogueira brothers working on your 'jiu-jitsu'. I'll take said quote unquote photograph, post it at dorksfrombrazil.com, password - not required, username - not required. That, Wanderlei, is how you threaten someone. Dummy. #Quote by Chael Sonnen
Fortune quotes by Amanda Hocking
#116. You're not very good at being contemplative," Milo said. "You always sound like some bad caricature of a philosopher, like those fortune cookies with 'Confucius say' or the Nietzsche guy from Mystery Men that's always saying 'when you walk on the ground, the ground walks on you. #Quote by Amanda Hocking

Fortune quotes by Drew Barrymore
#118. I'm not after fame and success and fortune and power. It's mostly that I want to have a good job and have good friends; that's the good stuff in life. #Quote by Drew Barrymore
Fortune quotes by William Shakespeare
#119. Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,

#120. So often in life, things that you regard as an impediment turn out to be great, good fortune. #Quote by Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Fortune quotes by Heraclitus
#122. Always having what we want

Health seems sweetest

of daylong labor sleep. #Quote by Heraclitus

Fortune quotes by Mark Dever
#126. A church is not a Fortune 500 company. It's not simply another nonprofit organization, nor is it a social club. In fact, a healthy church is unlike any organization that man has ever devised, because man didn't devise it. #Quote by Mark Dever
Fortune quotes by Vivian Swift
#127. There's a fortune of Authentic Vintage French Linen Tea Towels on every clothes line. These are the exact kind of linens that specialty shops in America sell for top dollar to affluent customers who pay dearly to add that touch of French Farmhouse Fabulousness to their million-dollar McMansions.


Flaubert is so wrong.

Even wash day in Normandy is achingly chic. #Quote by Vivian Swift
Fortune quotes by Plautus
#128. I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within. #Quote by Plautus
Fortune quotes by Cornelia Funke
#129. For Her Ugliness loved stories full of darkness. She didn't want to be told tales of good fortune and beauty, she liked to hear about death, ugly things, secrets heavy with tears. She wanted her very own world, and it had never heard of beauty and good fortune. #Quote by Cornelia Funke
Fortune quotes by Elizabeth Prentiss
#130. If the loss of your earthly fortune gains Christ for you, it will be a beautiful loss. #Quote by Elizabeth Prentiss
Fortune quotes by Seneca The Younger
#131. The fortune of war is always doubtful. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Fortune quotes by Thomas Hobbes
#132. Emulation is grief arising from seeing one's self, exceeded or excelled by his concurrent, together with hope to equal or exceed him in time to come, by his own ability. But envy is the same grief joined with pleasure conceived in the imagination of some ill-fortune that may befall him. #Quote by Thomas Hobbes
Fortune quotes by John Taylor Gatto
#133. As a writer, politician, scientist, and businessman, [Ben] Franklin had few equals among the educated of his day-though he left school at ten. ( ... )Boys like Andrew Carnegie who begged his mother not to send him to school and was well on his way to immortality and fortune at the age of thirteen, would be referred today for psychological counseling; Thomas Edison would find himself in Special Ed until his peculiar genius had been sufficiently tamed. #Quote by John Taylor Gatto
Fortune quotes by Suzannah  Rowntree
#134. Gawain laid his hand on his son's shoulder. "Sir Perceval, when the priest reads the lesson, he says that he who would save his life must lose it. Good words for any man, for there are moments when cowardice will bring death more surely than boldness. But the ordinary man knows, when he goes out to meet the wolf in his road, that he may yet come home in peace. Not so the knights of the Round Table. We win through one deadly peril only to face another. If we banish one evil, we must go on to the next and after that, to the next - until death meets us in the path. We yield up our bodies every day, not for glory and fortune but so that those weaker than ourselves may live. Do you understand?"
"I do," said Sir Perceval. "And I say that there is no nobler calling. I am content." But then he thought of the Lady Blanchefleur kissing his brow on a night of fire and blood, and with a sudden ache of grief told himself that even a hundred years of peace would not be enough time to spend with her. #Quote by Suzannah Rowntree
Fortune quotes by Pietro Metastasio
#135. The pilot who is always dreading a rock or a tempest must not complain if he remain a poor fisherman. We must at times trust, something to fortune, for fortune has often some share in what happens. #Quote by Pietro Metastasio
Fortune quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#136. Fortune, like other females, prefers a lover to a master, and submits with impatience to control; but he that wooes her with opportunity and importunity will seldom court her in vain. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton

Fortune quotes by Anton Chekhov
#141. To torment and tantalize oneself with hopes of possible fortune is so sweet, so thrilling! #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Fortune quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#142. It may be observed, that provinces amid the vicissitudes to which they are subject, pass from order into confusion, and afterward recur to a state of order again; for the nature of mundane affairs not allowing them to continue in an even course, when they have arrived at their greatest perfection, they soon begin to decline. In the same manner, having been reduced by disorder, and sunk to their utmost state of depression, unable to descend lower, they, of necessity, reascend; and thus from good they gradually decline to evil, and from evil again return to good. The reason is, that valor produces peace; peace, repose; repose, disorder; disorder, ruin; so from disorder order springs; from order virtue, and from this, glory and good fortune. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Fortune quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#143. [When anything happens, we interpret it as good or bad, but ... ] We do not know what is really good or bad fortune. [Only the future can decide. For example, what appears to be bad today may in fact lead us to a greater good tomorrow and by the very act of thinking and planning in that positive way, we can help make that good future come true.] #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Fortune quotes by Shaquille O'Neal
#144. Sometimes I feel like the Tom Hanks character in Big. But my life is not a movie. I never have to go back to Coney Island to find the fortune-teller machine so I have to grow up again. #Quote by Shaquille O'Neal
Fortune quotes by Hilary Mantel

#146. Fortune tellers live in the future. So do people who want to put things off.
So do fundamentalists. #Quote by Ed Seykota
Fortune quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#147. Nothing, in truth, can ever replace a lost companion. Old comrades cannot be manufactured. There is nothing that can equal the treasure of so many shared memories, so many bad times endured together, so many quarrels, reconciliations, heartfelt impulses. Friendships like that cannot be reconstructed. If you plant an oak, you will hope in vain to sit soon under its shade.
For such is life. We grow rich as we plant through the early years, but then come the years when time undoes our work and cuts down our trees. One by one our comrades deprive us of their shade, and within our mourning we always feel now the secret grief of growing old.
If I search among my memories for those whose taste is lasting, if I write the balance sheet of the moments that truly counted, I surely find those that no fortune could have bought me. You cannot buy the friendship of a companion bound to you forever by ordeals endured together. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Fortune quotes by John Steinbeck
#148. The one thing our species is helpless against is good fortune. It first puzzles, then frightens, then angers, and finally destroys us. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Fortune quotes by Mackenzi Lee

Poor Monty, in love with your best friend. #Quote by Mackenzi Lee

Fortune quotes by William Shakespeare

Whether love lead fortune, or else fortune love. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Fortune quotes by Oliver Goldsmith
#153. What real good does an addition to a fortune already sufficient procure? Not any. Could the great man, by having his fortune increased, increase also his appetites, then precedence might be attended with real amusement. #Quote by Oliver Goldsmith

Fortune quotes by Neale Donald Walsch

Fortune quotes by David Ogilvy

Fortune quotes by John Fowles
#159. The rival you both share is myself. I do not wish to marry ... First, because my past habituated me to loneliness. I had always thought I hated it. And now I have found I treasure it. I do not want to share my life. I wish to be what I am, not what a husband must expect me to become in marriage. My second reason is my present. I never expected to be happy in life. Yet I find myself happy where I am situated now. I have varied congenial work ... I am admitted to the daily conversation of genius. Such men have their faults. Their vices. But they are not those the world chooses to imagine. I have no genius myself, I have no more than the capacity to aid genius in very small and humble ways ... I believe I owe a debt to good fortune. I am not to seek it elsewhere. I am to see it as precarious, as a thing of which I must not allow myself to be bereft. #Quote by John Fowles
Fortune quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#160. It is better to be bold than too circumspect, because fortune is of a sex which likes not a tardy wooer and repulses all who are not ardent. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Fortune quotes by Hermann Bahr
#161. As long as he deceived himself about the truth, he could blame fortune and have confidence in the future. Now the clouds of madness were closing round his mind. #Quote by Hermann Bahr
Fortune quotes by Terry Pratchett
#162. All this good fortune, all this fierce joy ... it was wrong. Surely the universe could not allow this amount of happiness in one man, not without presenting a bill. Somewhere a big dark wave was cresting, and when it broke over his head it would wash everything away. Some days, he was sure he could hear its distant roar ... #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Fortune quotes by David Hewson
#163. Perhaps," he continued, "this capacity for evil is in all of us, then, and it's largely down to fortune whether we encounter the circumstance that breathes life into it or not. Just as it's luck that determines when or if that faulty gene breaks and gives you cancer or Marfan or the physique of an Olympian. #Quote by David Hewson
Fortune quotes by Jane Kenyon
#164. There's just no accounting for happiness, or the way it turns up like a prodigal who comes back to the dust at your feet having squandered a fortune far away. #Quote by Jane Kenyon
Fortune quotes by Katharine McGee
#165. At the mention of children, Connor halted his steps. For a moment Beatrice thought he was going to storm off, turn away from her and never look back.
Instead he fell to one knee before her. Time went momentarily still. In some dazed part of her mind Beatrice remembered Teddy, kneeling stiffly at her feet as he swore to be her liege man. This felt utterly different. Even kneeling, Connor looked like a warrior, every line of his body radiating a tensed power and strength.
"It kills me that I don't have more to offer you," he said roughly. "I have no lands, no fortune, no title. All I can give you is my honor, and my heart. Which already belongs to you."
She would have fallen in love with him right then, if she didn't already love him so fiercely that every cell of her body burned with it.
"I love you, Bee. I've loved you for so long I've forgotten what it felt like not to love you."
"I love you, too." Her eyes stung with tears.
"I get that you have to marry someone before your dad dies. But you can't marry Teddy Eaton."
She watched as he fumbled in his jacket for something - had he bought a ring? She thought wildly - but what he pulled out instead was a black Sharpie. Still kneeling before her, he slid the diamond engagement ring off Beatrice's finger and tucked it in the pocket of her jacket. Using the Sharpie, he traced a thin loop around the skin of Beatrice's finger, where the ring had been.
"I'm sorry it isn't a real ring, but I #Quote by Katharine McGee
Fortune quotes by John Ruskin
#166. We need examples of people who, leaving Heaven to decide whether they are to rise in the world, decide for themselves that they will be happy in it, and have resolved to seek not greater wealth, but simpler pleasure; not higher fortune, but deeper felicity; making the first of possessions, self-possession; and honouring themselves in the harmless pride and calm pursuits of peace. #Quote by John Ruskin
Fortune quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#167. [Fortune is glass: it glitters, then it shatters.]58 #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Fortune quotes by Damon Lindelof
#168. People talk about overnight successes, and ultimately, there's a certain amount of, you want to call it luck or fortune or good fortune, or whatever, but when your moment arrives, you have to have been at a point where you paid your dues, or done your 10,000 hours or have the requisite talent or whatever. #Quote by Damon Lindelof
Fortune quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#169. There is something to be said for jealousy, because it only designs the preservation of some good which we either have or think wehave a right to. But envy is a raging madness that cannot bear the wealth or fortune of others. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Fortune quotes by Louise Penny
#170. 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
Fortune quotes by John W. Thompson

Fortune quotes by Søren Kierkegaard
#174. I have never been joyful, and yet it has always seemed as if joy were my constant companion, as if the buoyant jinn of joy danced around me, invisible to others but not to me, whose eyes shone with delight. Then when I walk past people, happy-go-lucky as a god, and they envy me because of my good fortune, I laugh, for I despise people, and I take my revenge. I have never wished to do anyone an injustice, but I have always made it appear as if anyone who came close to me would be wronged and injured. Then when I hear others praised for their faithfulness, their integrity, I laugh, for I despise people, and I take my revenge. My heart has never been hardened toward anyone, but I have always made it appear, especially when I was touched most deeply, as if my heart were closed and alien to every feeling. Then when I hear others lauded for their good hearts, see them loved for their deep, rich feelings, then I laugh, for I despise people and take my revenge. When I see myself cursed, abhorred, hated for my coldness and heartlessness, then I laugh, then my rage is satisfied. The point is that if the good people could make me be actually in the wrong, make me actually do an injustice-well, then I would have lost. #Quote by Søren Kierkegaard
Fortune quotes by Domenico Starnone
#175. I savored the fortune of being, for a good seventy-four years, a happy transmutation of the sidereal substance that roils in the furnace of the universe, a fragment of living thinking matter, without too many aches and pains to boot, and barely scathed, purely by chance, by misfortune. #Quote by Domenico Starnone
Fortune quotes by Irene S. Levine
#176. Women with low self-esteem or those who are depressed, however, tend to focus exclusively on their shortcomings and are bitter about what they perceive as the advantages or good fortune of others. Taken to an extreme, such an individual tends to be self-involved, hostile, and cutting. It's natural to feel envy occasionally, but if this is a persistent pattern, it can signal a toxic friendship. #Quote by Irene S. Levine
Fortune quotes by Michael Crichton
#177. People aren't studying the natural world any more, they're mining it. It's a looter mentality. Anything new or unknown is automatically of interest, because it might have value. It might be worth a fortune. #Quote by Michael Crichton
Fortune quotes by Jerry Della Femina
#178. I'm hard-nosed about luck. I think it sucks. Yeah, if you spend seven years looking for a job as a copywriter, and then one day somebody gives you a job, you can say, Gee, I was lucky I happened to go up there today. But, dammit, I was going to go up there sooner or later in the next seventy years. If you're persistent in trying and doing and working, you almost make your own fortune. #Quote by Jerry Della Femina
Fortune quotes by Benjamin Franklin

Fortune quotes by Leon Battista Alberti
#180. Men are themselves the source of their own fortune and misfortune. #Quote by Leon Battista Alberti
Fortune quotes by Joseph-Louis Lagrange
#181. If I had inherited a fortune I should probably not have cast my lot with mathematics. #Quote by Joseph-Louis Lagrange
Fortune quotes by Tom Rachman
#182. He was right to notice something missing. She had not stated her fundamental view: that, for Duncan, time and place, fortune and misfortune, only had a glancing impact. He was temperamentally condemned to embitterment and would revert to that condition regardless of circumstances, just as lottery winners, after the euphoria, ended up as morose or cheerful as they'd ever been. People did not see the world for what it was but for what they were. #Quote by Tom Rachman
Fortune quotes by Joan Bauer
#183. I'll tell you why I keep my scrapbooks. It's in case my real father shows up .I never met him, don't even know his name ... I've got this feeling he's out there searching for me. When he bursts through the door and tells me he's spent a fortune on detectives looking all over the world for me, I'm not going to sit there like a dumb cluck when he asks me what I've been doing. I'm going to yank out my eleven scrapbooks filled with my experiences and inner-most thoughts on life lived in three time zones in America. I was a Girl Scout for three months when we lived in Atlanta. I couldn't get those square knots down for anything, but I got the big concept. Be prepared. Addie always told me, It's more important to get the big concept than to be an expert in the small stuff. #Quote by Joan Bauer
Fortune quotes by Drew Chadwick
#184. Love is priceless. And all I really want is a good night kiss. So if tears were diamonds, more valuable gold, then a fortune in the corners of my eyes I would hold. #Quote by Drew Chadwick
Fortune quotes by Johann Gustav Droysen
#185. History is the only science enjoying the ambiguous fortune of being required to be at the same time an art. #Quote by Johann Gustav Droysen
Fortune quotes by Margaret Oliphant
#186. Spring cold is like the poverty of a poor man who has had a fortune left him - better days are coming ... #Quote by Margaret Oliphant
Fortune quotes by Francis Bacon
#187. It cannot be denied that outward accidents conduce much to fortune, favor, opportunity, death of others, occasion fitting virtue; but chiefly, the mold of a man's fortune is in his own hands #Quote by Francis Bacon
Fortune quotes by Jules Verne
#188. IN WHICH PASSEPARTOUT RECEIVES A NEW PROOF THAT FORTUNE FAVORS THE BRAVE #Quote by Jules Verne
Fortune quotes by Celso Cukierkorn
#189. My grandfather created a fortune that allowed him to live in luxury. He also went on to build the first industrial building in an area of San Paulo that eventually became one of the largest wholesale neighborhoods in the world. When my grandfather passed away, he left millions of dollars to my family as an inheritance. That inheritance, however, would have been worthless if he had not also given us his legacy of personal responsibility and work ethic. My grandfather refused to be defined by others, therefore setting not only the value of his product, but also of himself and his family. #Quote by Celso Cukierkorn
Fortune quotes by Andrea Bocelli
#190. I have had the good fortune of being able to sing with many of the finest voices in the world, and for someone who loves voices as I do, this is an enormous privilege. #Quote by Andrea Bocelli
Fortune quotes by Thomas Hardy
#191. Do I realize solemnly enough how utterly and irretrievably this little womanly thing is the creature of my good or bad faith and fortune? I think not. I think I could not, unless I were a woman myself. What I am in worldly estate, she is. What I become, she must become. What I cannot be, she cannot be. And shall I ever neglect her, or hurt her, or even forget to consider her? God forbid such a crime! #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Fortune quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#192. Seducing a girl is no art, but it needs a stroke of good fortune to find one worth seducing. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Fortune quotes by James Gates Percival
#193. Happy the life, that in a peaceful stream,
Obscure, unnoticed through the vale has flow'd;
The heart that ne'er was charm'd by fortune's gleam
Is ever sweet contentment's blest abode. #Quote by James Gates Percival
Fortune quotes by Jerry Garcia
#194. We have quite a large area, and that makes it more fun for us - certainly more satisfying, because it doesn't restrict us to one particular idea or one particular style. The result, I think, is pretty interesting ... we don't expect to make a fortune at it or ever be popular or famous or worshipped or hit The Ed Sullivan Show or the circuses or the big top. As long as we can play, we'll play, regardless of what it's for, who it's for or anything. It's fun for us - that's the important thing. #Quote by Jerry Garcia
Fortune quotes by Erik Martin Willen
#195. Anyone can get their hands on a fortune but to become successful one must work intelligent and hard.- EMW #Quote by Erik Martin Willen
Fortune quotes by Marianne Williamson
#196. The fact is, there are Fortune 500 companies that have been founded during recessions. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Fortune quotes by Walter Savage Landor
#197. It has been my fortune to love in general those men most who have thought most differently from me, on subjects wherein others pardon no discordance. I think I have no more right to be angry with a man, whose reason has followed up a process different from what mine has, and is satisfied with the result, than with one who has gone to Venice while I am at Siena, and who writes to me that he likes the place. #Quote by Walter Savage Landor
Fortune quotes by Elton John
#198. From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking step into the sun
There's more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
Some say, eat or be eaten
Some say, live and let live
But, all are agreed as they join the stampede
You should never take more than you give
In the circle of life
It's the wheel of fortune
It's the leap of faith
It's the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The Circle of Life #Quote by Elton John
Fortune quotes by Seneca The Younger
#199. Happy is the man who can endure the highest and lowest fortune. He who has endured such vicissitudes with equanimity has deprived misfortune of its power. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Fortune quotes by Paulo Coelho
#200. Some people believe that "fashion" is everything. Every six months, they spend a fortune changing some tiny detail in order to keep up their membership in the very exclusive tribe of the rich. If they were to visit Silicon Valley, where the billionaires of the IT industry wear plastic watches and beat-up jeans, they would understand that the world has changed #Quote by Paulo Coelho
