      What we sometimes call Luck is just the fruit of Hard work. The quote was too deep for you.

      It is stupid because it conflates the dividends of hard work with a result not merited through it, when that isn’t the case in reality. This confusion comes largely because people tend to mistake opportunity for luck (and vice versa).

      “What we sometimes call Luck is just the fruit of Hard work”
      Luck is independent of how hard you work.

      “The quote was too deep for you.”
      No. Actually, it’s just that your mind is not deep enough to see past the hollow nonsense that is the entirety of that quote.

    He should have said ‘the harder you work smartly, the luckier you get’

    We all know smart work gets you there not hard work.

    This quote series only shows how uninspired and predictable Nigeria’s “success” stories are. Just a little search on the internet will point you to the dubious source of many of these people’s wealth….and then you’ll understand why their speeches are so empty and hollow. Zero innovation and 100% show.

    Our Steve Jobs, Andrew Carnagies, Mark Zuckerbergs are not yet born. But are we the youths (including yours truly) up to the challenge?

    no way! all the quotes so far are terrible, and they don’t deserve any mentions.
