58,576.  ’Tis better to be fortunate than wise.  (Fortunate & Wisdom)  John Webster, The White Devil           

 

 

73,485.  Some people are born with very little; some are fortunate enough to have it all.  When I grew up, we didn't have much.  I had to hustle to get what I wanted ... but I had that hunger for more.  I didn’t always make the right choices, but I learned from my mistakes.  (Fortunate & Mistake)  Curtis Jackson

 

 

73,486.  We are so fortunate, as Australians, to have among us the oldest continuing cultures in human history.  Cultures that link our nation with deepest antiquity.  We have Aboriginal rock art in the Kimberley that is as ancient as the great Palaeolithic cave paintings at Altamira and Lascaux in Europe.  (Fortunate & Australia)  Kevin Rudd

 

 

73,487.   Fortunate people often have very favourable beginnings and very tragic endings.  What matters isn't being applauded when you arrive – for that is common – but being missed when you leave.  Baltasar Gracian  

 

 

42,389.  Advocates of capitalism are very apt to appeal to the sacred principles of liberty, which are embodied in one maxim: the fortunate must not be restrained in the exercise of tyranny over the unfortunate.  (Capitalism & Tyranny & Fortunate & Liberty)  Bertrand Russell

 

 

73,488.  Those men and women are fortunate who are born at a time when a great struggle for human freedom is in progress.  It is an added good fortune to have parents who take a personal part in the great movements of their time. I am glad and thankful that this was my case.  (Fortunate & Suffragette)  Emmeline Pankhurst

 

 

73,489.  I have had an amazingly fortunate life.  I’m a child from Yorkshire, which is sort of like Cleveland without the pretty bits.  (Fortunate & Yorkshire & Cleveland)  Jeremy Clarkson

 

 

73,490.  I’m one of the most fortunate people in the world.  (Fortunate & Kennedy)  Rose Kennedy

 

 

73,491.  I feel very fortunate to be compared to somebody so incredible. Michael Jackson's an icon.  (Fortunate & Michael Jackson & Icon)  Justin Timberlake

 

 

73,492.  I don’t know if I believe in luck.  I think I’m very fortunate.  (Fortunate & Luck)  Eric Clapton

 

 

73,493.  America is a hurricane, and the only people who do not hear the sound are those fortunate if incredibly stupid and smug White Protestants who live in the center, in the serene eye of the big wind.  (Fortunate & United States of America)  Norman Mailer

 

 

73,494.  It is fortune, not wisdom, that rules man’s life.  (Fortune & Fortunate)  Cicero

 

 

73,495.  Fortune’s a right whore:

If she give aught, she deals it in small parcels,

That she may take away all at one swoop.  (Fortune & Fortunate)  John Webster, The White Devil

 

 

73,496.  Chiefly the mould of a man’s fortune is in his own hands.  (Fortune & Fortunate)  Francis Bacon, Essays, 1625, ‘Of Fortune’

 

73,497.  If a man look sharply, and attentively, he shall see Fortune; for though she be blind, yet she is not invisible.  (Fortune & Fortunate)  ibid.

 

 

73,498.  O fickle Fortune, why this cruel sporting?

Why thus torment us poor sons of day?

Nae mair your smiles can cheer me, nae mair your frowns can fear me,

For the flowers of the forest are a’ wade away.  (Fortune & Fortunate)  Alison Cockburn nee Rutherford 1713-94

 

 

73,499.  O fortune, O fortune, all men call thee fickle.  (Fortune & Fortunate)  William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet III v 60, Juliet

 

 

73,500.  But Fortune, O,

She is corrupted.  (Fortune & Fortunate)  William Shakespeare, King John II ii 54-55, Constance

 

 

73,501.  Let fortune go to hell for it, not I.  (Fortune & Fortunate)  William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice III ii 21, Portia to Bassiano

 

73,502.  For herein Fortune shows herself more kind

Than is her custom; it is still her use

To live the wretched man outlive his wealth

To view with hollow eye and wrinkled brow

An age of poverty, from which ling’ring penance

Of such misery doth she cut me off.  (Fortune & Fortunate)  ibid.  IV i 264-269, Antonio to Portia et al

 

 

73,506.  And giddy Fortune’s furious fickle wheel,

That noble blind that stands upon the rolling,

restless shore.  (Fortune & Fortunate)  William Shakespeare, Henry V III vi 26-28, Pistol

 

73,507.  Fortune is painted blind, with a muffler afore her eyes, to signify to you that Fortune is blind.  And she is painted also with a wheel, to signify to you - which is the moral of it – that she is turning and inconstant and mutability and variation.  And her foot, look you is fixed upon a spherical stone, which rolls and rolls and rolls.  In good truth, the poet makes a most excellent description of it: Fortune is an excellent moral.  (Fortune & Fortunate)  ibid.  III vi 29-36, Fluellen

 

73,508.  Doth Fortune play the hussy with me now?  (Fortune & Fortunate)  ibid.  V i 76, Pistol

 

 

1,190.  There is a tide in the affairs of men,

Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;

Omitted, all the voyage of their life

Is bound in shallows and in miseries.  (Life’s Like That & Man & Flood & Fortune & Misery & Fortunate)  William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar IV iii 217

 

 

73,509.  Fortune reigns in gifts of the world, not to the lineaments of nature.  (Fortune & Fortunate)  William Shakespeare, As You Like It I ii 40-41, Rosalind to Celia

 

 

1,194.  To be, or not to be – that is the question.

Whether ’tis nobler 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? – To die – to sleep –

No more; and by a sleep to say we end

The heart-ache, and the thousand natural shocks

That flesh is heir to; ’tis a consummation

Devoutly to be wished.  To die – to sleep –

To sleep! Perchance to dream.  Aye, there’s the rub;

For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,

When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,

Must give us pause.  There’s the respect

That makes calamity of so long life.

For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,

The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,

The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,

The insolence of office...’  (Life’s Like That & Be & Question & Noble & Mind & Suffer & Fortune & Arms & Trouble & Opposition & Death & Pain & Suicide & Dream & Oppress & Law & Office & Fortunate)  William Shakespeare, Hamlet, III i 56-73
