Re: The wheel of Fortune - rota Fortunae
In reply to Sal18, 6 months ago

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rota_Fortunae

"I know how Fortune is ever most friendly and alluring to those whom she strives to deceive, until she overwhelms them with grief beyond bearing, by deserting them when least expected. … Are you trying to stay the force of her turning wheel? Ah! dull-witted mortal, if Fortune begin to stay still, she is no longer Fortune." - Boethius,, 524 AD

Doisneau said that luck is our currency, and we pay for it with our time.

For a clumsy amateur like me, as for a master like HCB it seems, success is nothing but chance, the wheel of fortune turning the blindly and stupidly the right way one day as she prepares to crush us the next day.
