Chance

All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsion, habit, reason, passion, and desire.

~ Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC)

Chance

The greatest loss of time is delay and expectation, which depend upon the future. We let go the present, which we have in our power, and look forward to that which depends upon chance, and so relinquish a certainty for an uncertainty.

~ Seneca (5 BC - 65 AD)

Chance

Chance fights ever on the side of the prudent.

~ Euripides

Chance

Chaos umpire sits, And by decision more embroils the fray by which he reigns: next him high arbiter. Chance governs all.

~ John Milton (1608-1674)

Chance

How dare we speak of the laws of chance? Is not chance the antithesis of all law?

~ Bertrand Russell (1872-1970).

Chance

The generation of random numbers is too important to be left to chance.

~ Robert R. Coveyou

Chance

If there is a 50-50 chance that something can go wrong, then 9 times out of ten it will.

~ Paul Harvey

Chance

How often might a man, after he had jumbled a set of letters in a bag, fling them out upon the ground before they would fall into an exact poem, yea, or so much as make a good discourse in prose. And may not a little book be as easily made by chance as this great volume of the world.

~ Tillotson, Archbishop. In J. R. Newman (ed.) The World of Mathematics

Chance

The Reader may here observe the Force of Numbers, which can be successfully applied, even to those things, which one would imagine are subject to no Rules. There are very few things which we know, which are not capable of being reduc'd to a Mathematical Reasoning; and when they cannot it's a sign our knowledge of them is very small and confus'd; and when a Mathematical Reasoning can be had it's as great a folly to make use of any other, as to grope for a thing in the dark, when you have a Candle standing by you.

~ C. Huygens, Of the Laws of Chance (1692)

Chance

I returned and saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

~ Ecclesiastes

Chance

What a large volume of adventures may be grasped within this little span of life, by him who interests his heart in everything, and who, having eyes to see what time and chance are perpetually holding out to him as he journeyeth on his way, misses nothing he can fairly lay his hands on!

~ Laurence Sterne

Chance

If what I do prove well, it won't advance.
They'll say it's stolen, or else it was by chance.

~ Anne Bradstreet (1612 - 1672)

Chance

Chance happens to all, but to turn chance to account is the gift of few.

~ Edward Robert Bulwer-Lytton

Chance

Chance is a word void of sense; nothing can exist without a cause.

~ Voltaire

Chance

At any rate, I am convinced that He [God] does not play dice.

~ Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955), In a letter to Max Born, 1926

Chance

God not only plays dice, he also sometimes throws the dice where they cannot be seen.

~ Stephen Hawking

Chance

Work and acquire, and thou hast chained the wheel of Chance.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

Chance

He who every morning plans the transaction of the day and follows out that plan, carries a thread that will guide him through the maze of the most busy life. But where no plan is laid, where the disposal of time is surrendered merely to the chance of incidence, chaos will soon reign.

~ Victor Hugo (1802 - 1885)

Chance

Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.

~ Ovid (43 BC - 17 AD)

Chance

I've never quite believed that one chance is all I get.

~ Anne Tyler (1941 - )

Chance

If you're never scared or embarrassed or hurt, it means you never take any chances.

~ Julia Sorel

Chance

What is life but a series of inspired follies? The difficulty is to find them to do. Never lose a chance: it doesn't come every day.

~ George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), Pygmalion

Chance

Chance is perhaps the pseudonym of God when he does not wish to sign his work.

~ Anatole France (1844 - 1924)

Chance

There is no such thing as chance; and what seem to us merest accident springs from the deepest source of destiny.

~ Schiller

Chance

Those who trust to chance must abide by the results of chance.

~ Calvin Coolidge (1872 - 1933)

Chance

Unless you are prepared yourself to profit by your chance, the opportunity will only make you ridiculous. A great occasion is valuable to you in proportion as you have educated yourself to make use of it.

~ Orison Swett Marden (1850 - 1924)

Chance

The only time you ever run out of chances is when you stop taking them.

~ Patty Labelle

Chance

A wise man turns chance into good fortune.

~ Thomas Fuller

Chance

I didn't ask for it to be over. But then again I didn't ask for it to begin. For that's the way it is with life, as some of the most beautiful days come completely by chance. But even the most beautiful days eventually have their sunset.

~ Javan

Chance

Many a happiness in life, as many a disaster, can be due to chance, but the peace within us can never be governed by chance.

~ Maurice Maeterlinck

Chance

Chance favors only those who court her.

~ Charles Nicolle

Chance

One chance is all you need.

~ Jesse Owens

Chance

Did you ever observe to whom the accidents happen? Chance favors only the prepared mind.

~ Louis Pasteur

Chance

If you apply reason and logic to this career of mine, you're not going to get very far. You simply won't. The journey has been incredible from its beginning. So much of life, it seems to me, is determined by pure randomness.

~ Sidney Poitier

Chance

Sometimes I pause and sadly think of all the things that might have been. Of all the golden chances I let slip by, And which never returned again. It fills me with gloom when I ponder this, Till I look on the other side. How I might have been completely engulfed by misfortune's surging tide.

~ G.J. Russell

Chance

When you consider what a chance women have to poison their husbands, it's a wonder there isn't more of it done.

Though I am not naturally honest, I am so sometimes by chance.

Housework can't kill you, but why take a chance?

~ Phyllis Diller

Chance

How come "fat chance" and "slim chance" mean the same thing?

~ Ziggy
