"It may seem sometimes as if a culture of peace does not stand a chance against the culture of war, the culture of violence and the cultures of impunity and intolerance. Peace may indeed be a complex challenge, dependent on action in many fields and even a bit of luck from time to time. It may be a painfully slow process, and fragile and imperfect when it is achieved. But peace is in our hands. We can do it."
-- Kofi Annan

We are a country that prides itself on power and wealth, yet there are millions of children who go hungry every day.

-- Lesley Boone

-- Judy Collins

-- Franklin D. Roosevelt

It is now almost 40 years since the invention of nuclear weapons. We have not yet experienced a global thermonuclear war -- although on more than one occasion we have come tremulously close. I do not think our luck can hold forever. Men and machines are fallible, as recent events remind us. Fools and madmen do exist, and sometimes rise to power. Concentrating always on the near future, we have ignored the long-term consequences of our actions. We have placed our civilization and our species in jeopardy. Fortunately, it is not yet too late. We can safeguard the planetary civilization and the human family if we so choose. There is no more important or more urgent issue.
-- Carl Sagan

When it comes to luck, you make your own.

-- Emma Thompson

I say luck is when an opportunity comes along and you're prepared for it.
-- Denzel Washington

* I feel that luck is preparation meeting opportunity.
-- Oprah Winfrey
