Of Fortune

“If a man look sharply, and attentively, he shall see Fortune: for though she be blind, yet she is not invisible.”

Francis Bacon, Essays (1625) ‘Of Fortune’


Life and Fortune

No plain not followed by a slope.
No going not followed by a return.
He who remains persevering in danger
Is without blame.
Do not complain about this truth;
Enjoy the good fortune you still possess.
The I Ching, R. Wilhelm / C. F. Baynes / C. G. Jung
