That's not why I don't believe in luck, though. Luck is an adjective we attribute in hindsight; it's a way to understand and classify otherwise senseless events, good and bad. It could be said that everyone is lucky at some point and vice versa. But leaving your life to luck is like giving up your locus of control and saying you don't control your destiny.
Anyway, I don't want to dampen anyone's St. Patrick's Day spirits further, but when you hear the "luck of the Irish" tomorrow, remember its true origin. At the very least, it makes a good story — and I think telling those is very Irish!
