You Cannot Succeed Without Luck

From Brett Martin’s interview with American actor Bryan Cranston in GQ magazine, “The Last Stand of Walter White” (July 2013).

“You can work as hard as possible, but if you don’t have a bit of luck and someone who puts your name forward, you may not get anywhere.

From Eliana Dockterman’s interview with Irish actor Saoirse Ronan in Time magazine, “Next Generation Leaders” (June 13, 2016).
