How can you say luck and chance are the same thing? Chance is the first step you take, luck is what comes afterwards.

    A person who never take chances would never have any luck in anything he/she does!

    You’ve confirmed the quote. 🙂

    If you change your mind, I’m the first in line
    Honey I’m still free
    Take a chance on me
    If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
    If you’ve got no place to go, if you’re feeling down
    If you’re all alone when the pretty birds have flown
    Honey I’m still free
    Take a chance on me
    Gonna do my very best and it ain’t no lie
    If you put me to the test, if you let me try

    Take a chance on me
    (That’s all I ask of you honey)
    Take a chance on me

    We can go dancing, we can go walking, as long as we’re together
    Listen to some music, maybe just talking, get to know you better
    ‘Cos you know I’ve got
    So much that I wanna do, when I dream I’m alone with you
    It’s magic
    You want me to leave it there, afraid of a love affair
    But I think you know
    That I can’t let go

    If you change your mind, I’m the first in line
    Honey I’m still free
    Take a chance on me
    If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
    If you’ve got no place to go, if you’re feeling down
    If you’re all alone when the pretty birds have flown
    Honey I’m still free
    Take a chance on me
    Gonna do my very best and it ain’t no lie
    If you put me to the test, if you let me try

    Take a chance on me
    (Come on, give me a break will you?)
    Take a chance on me
    Oh you can take your time baby, I’m in no hurry, know I’m gonna get you
    You don’t wanna hurt me, baby don’t worry, I ain’t gonna let you
    Let me tell you now
    My love is strong enough to last when things are rough
    It’s magic
    You say that I waste my time but I can’t get you off my mind
    No I can’t let go
    ‘Cos I love you so

    If you change your mind, I’m the first in line
    Honey I’m still free
    Take a chance on me
    If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
    If you’ve got no place to go, if you’re feeling down
    If you’re all alone when the pretty birds have flown
    Honey I’m still free
    Take a chance on me
    Gonna do my very best, baby can’t you see
    Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me
    (Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me)

    Sure, sure.. I’ll take a chance on you, Suituapui. Hahaha 😆

    Urm…
    We seek for chances, and luck seek for us? 😀

    Possibly. 🙂

  4. ianfluenza Says:

    Ah, I see STP’s doing great progress on compiling his dictionary of lyrics…

    Well said, Jemima.

    Yes, I love how STP can always associate a song with a post. 😉

    I’m glad you like Amy Tan’s quote. 😀

  5. tihtahpah Says:

    how does luck seek for us?

    I won’t know.. but I know it is there when we least expected it.

  6. Kyels Says:

    Chances come unknowingly and so is luck.

    I agree, Kyels. 🙂

  7. zeroimpact Says:

    There is no luck if there is no chance
    Know when and how to make use of chances and then only you will know luck

    Thanks for the advice, Matt.

  8. alison Says:

    hmm… *shrug*, learn from both luck and chance have to offer and grow wiser ??? (head empty, not sure if i’m making sense) 😛

    Hehe.. not to worry, Alison. 😛


  9. Luck and Chance are the same because the word Chance comes from the French … meaning luck. Thus, they say in French, ‘Bon Chance’ for ‘Good Luck’.

    Darn … now, I’m sounding intellectual. Um … must say something funny … um … er …

    *runs*

    But, you are an intellectual. 🙂
