a pound of luck

pluck or luck ?

the 20th president James Garfield said that a pound of pluck was a ton of luck

well he wasn't talking about weight differences

the saying

when he said pluck he means courage he is trying to get at that you should not let your dreams slip through your fingers and don't rely on luck use that courage to hold on to your dreams even if people try to knock you down or push you away from your dreams hold on and stand strong on your feelings
