The Elizabethans of Shakespeare’s time, in response to the Question of Good and Evil, believed in three factors that shape how things unfold:
Providence, i.e., God’s will,
Fortune, i.e., luck and chance, and
human character, i.e., your diligent study, practice, training, and action.
Take care of your end, my friends: “‘Good luck’ is when opportunity meets preparation.”

And gladly wolde he lerne, and gladly teche.
Repetition is the mother of learning.
“It’s not wise to violate rules until you know how to observe them.”
