What is Luck ?

“Not everyone finds themselves in a position to reveal some world-changing government secret. Not everyone is there when somebody falls into the water and can’t swim. Not everyone who gets a call to go into nursing finds the field so primitive that even a little bit of knowledge can be revolutionary. Not all of us are “lucky” enough to be of military age when Leonidas selected his three hundred, or to be a screenwriter called to testify against our colleagues in Hollywood, or to be a feminist during the suffragette movement. If that’s what you want to call luck .”
