    It depends on what you're waiting for.

    Apparently fortune favors the bold.

    Depends.

    Nuthin will come if you just wait and do nothing - you need to plan and work towards what you want, which is where the patience comes in, imo.

    You have to make your good things happen. A good start is doing something nice for someone else.

    I now have Phat Planet in my head. I haven't heard it in ages, so that's more an observation than a complaint.

    Sometimes something juicy just lands on your plate but in my experience you have to pursue the good things in life.

    Depends what you mean by this.

    Sure, if something good just drops in your lap, be a fool not to take advantage, but if something good that needs work and you have made your move already, may take time for this good thing to bear fruit so to speak.

    It's like "Waiting for Godot". Like Godot it will never come but life is what happens while you wait. You may hope and wish but remember that life does not stop, waiting for such things.

    In my experience lady luck needs a gentle nudge in the right direction every now and then...
