Worth Quoting from Marie Warder
"I Don’t Believe in Luck: Wishing is Such a Futile Exercise! ... It's like trying to phone somebody who doesn't have a telephone. Now praying is another thing altogether. It works! "Seek and ye shall find...ask and ye shall receive..." That, indeed, is another thing. Rather than "lucky," I prefer to say "blessed."
"In my vocabulary there are no such words as "luck" or "coincidence." I have lived long enough now not to believe in either. Nor do I believe in "ships passing in the night." I think that makes God too small. I believe that God is bigger than mere chance and I believe that we meet, and things happen, by Divine Intervention. I agree that sometimes people one meets only briefly, inexplicably come along again some day, even if just in our memories and in certain circumstances, and then become part of our lives."
"Have you ever held a butterfly and noticed how some of its color comes off in your hands? I’m sure you have. But, just think, you don’t even have to hold it…even if it were just to fly too close to you …even only brush your sleeve in passing… some of its ‘butterfly dust’, would have been left behind, on you. In the same way, something of you has already rubbed off on me, and you’ll go away from here, carrying away something of me." -Marie Warder as quoted in blogcritics.org
