I found a $20 note floating in a lil puddle near the train station and out of all people out there, I am the very first one to have spotted it. Is that luck?

Is there really such thing as Luck ?
Is it really luck when something fortunate happens, and is it curse when something unfortunate happens? For me both is Fate. No such such thing as Luck or unlucky. Fate because whether good or bad happens, everything happens for a reason.

And so for what happened today, being able to have spotted the 20 dollar note out in the open with lots of people. I think that was karma.

I received what I gave out =D

"what comes around goes around."

And I really believe in that quote. Have u ever had someone treated you badly but you were kind and hesitant to say anything back, and then the sooner or later, something happens to that evil person that makes you say "Ha-ha" you got what u deserve....

Lets discuss them... Luck,Fate,Destiny and Karma...

"I'm a great believer in luck and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it"
- Thomas Jefferson

“Each man is the architect of his own fate.”
- Appius Claudius

“It's choice--not chance--that determines your destiny”
- Jean Nidetch

"I don't believe in karma"
- Sandra Bernhard

These quotes basically sum up my sentiments regarding these four ideas.

I believe there in destiny for sure but it wont happen if you dont make the choices. Its all about doing something. Fate kinda ties in with this. Dont believe in luck. Good things happen, and bad things happen. Karma i think is sorta like a mystical way of saying treat people how you want to be treated.

theres no such thing as luck. life consists of series of choices. and there's only a handful of those choices that impact our lives. like college, marriage, divorce. death etc. so the real issue is choosing what is right and best for an individual.

^like what chunky said.

I think things happen in one's life because they were meant to happen. The choices you make leads you to where you are. The things that happen to you expectedly or un-expectedly are suppose to happen too...yeah

Things just happen. A higher power isn't causing little stuff like this to occur. Someone dropped a 20 and you happened to see it and pick it up.

This is just a case of looking for meaning in something that's most likely meaningless. You're the one who created the perception that this is a good thing. What about the other side? Someone must have lost this 20 dollar bill. Is that not a bad thing? Odds are that the guy/girl didn't deserve to lose it. Can you really be happy that you're carrying around money that belongs to someone else?

Truth be told... i don't believe in Karma or Destiny... i do however believe in luck.

Throughout the years, i haven't been given the power to make choices.... i was either tricked or manipulated into benefiting others.

As for now, im always shit out of luck... But i do believe that the tides will change and flow in my favor for awhile.

....i believe in luck and statistics.... F*** Karma, F*** Destiny

Fate and Destiny are basically the same but i believe u make ur on destiny while fate is decided for u. Luck no such thing its just a coincedience(sp?) that it happened. Karma is real i mean i once kicked someone in the ass and a day later i got kicked in the ass.................next time i'll take my shoe off and leave it up their a**

I don't think there is such thing as luck but it is nice to feel like there is meaning to things ^-^. I believe in karma in a logical way that if you do something good you will most likely be rewarded for it.
This is similar to the idea of fate and destiny:

Just because its nice to feel there is meaning, does not make it true, this is just wishful thinking.

Where is the karma for the escaped murderer who kills a family member yet escapes justice, are we to console ourself with the proposition that he/she will be tormented in hell? (retribution via afterlife)

As basou stated, and i'll concur - shit happens, sometimes for a reason, sometimes not, and its not likely that what goes around necessarily comes around.
