"I'm hard-nosed about luck. I think it sucks. Yeah, if you spend seven years looking for a job as a copywriter, and then one day somebody gives you a job, you can say, 'Gee, I was lucky I happened to go up there today.' But, dammit, I was going to go up there sooner or later in the next seventy years. If you're persistent in trying and doing and working, you almost make your own fortune."
-- Legendary Ad-Exec, Jerry Della Femina
