Are you a lucky sort of person? Are you the type that trips over a black cat on Friday the 13th while walking under a ladder only to land on top of a discarded lottery ticket that wins you zillions? No? Not you?

Maybe then you are like the rest of us  - doing everything you can to avoid bad luck - taking care not to break mirrors, always saluting magpies and crossing your fingers to make wishes come true.

And what happens? You knock on wood and the tree falls on your head. You get struck by lightning three times! And, despite having read Tam O'Shanter, you get chased over a river by an ugly old witch and forced to marry her and live in a haunted graveyard with her evil, haggard parents.

 Well, it's lucky you stumbled upon Superstitions.biz . . . we may not be able to save you from the ugly witch but at least we can warn you of all the luck and bad luck that is likely to befall you on your wary journey through life.

Enjoy browsing and remember to return to this website - at least 13 times or else!!!!

This weeks featured superstition quotations:


It is bad luck to fall out of a thirteenth story window on Friday.
Proverb


I have, thanks to my travels, added to my stock all the superstitions of other countries. I know them all now, and in any critical moment of my life, they all rise up in armed legions for or against me.
Sarah Bernhardt

In better times the religion of the tribe or state has nothing in common with the private and foreign superstitions or magical rites that savage terror may dictate to the individual.
William Robertson Smith

It is one of the superstitions of the human mind to have imagined that virginity could be a virtue.
Voltaire

A life full of bad luck is better than a life hindered by superstition.
Stuart Macfarlane

Everyone has his superstitions. One of mine has always been when I started to go anywhere, accomplished.
Ulysses S. Grant

Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fantasies. To teach superstitions as truths is a most terrible thing. The child mind accepts and believes them, and only through great pain and perhaps tragedy can he be in after years relieved of them.
Hypatia

I think the greatest taboos in America are faith and failure.
Michael Malone

It is bad luck to be superstitious.
Andrew W. Mathis

Whenever a taboo is broken, something good happens, something vitalizing. Taboos after all are only hangovers, the product of diseased minds, you might say, of fearsome people who hadn't the courage to live and who under the guise of morality and religion have imposed these things upon us.
Henry Miller

It is the customary fate of new truths, to begin as heresies, and to end as superstitions.
Thomas Huxley

The general root of superstition is that men observe when things hit, and not when they miss; and commit to memory the one, and forget and pass over the other.
Francis Bacon

I have, thanks to my travels, added to my stock all the superstitions of other countries. I know them all now, and in any critical moment of my life, they all rise up in armed legions for or against me.
Sarah Bernhardt

Superstition is only the fear of belief, while religion is the confidence.
Marguerite Blessington

Superstition is the religion of feeble minds.
Edmund Burke

When superstition is allowed to perform the task of old age in dulling the human temperament, we can say goodbye to all excellence in poetry, in painting, and in music.
Denis Diderot

Superstitions are habits rather than beliefs.
Marlene Dietrich

We may be through with the past, but the past is not through with us. Ideas of the Stone Age exist side by side with the latest scientific thought. Only a fraction of mankind has emerged from the Dark Ages, and in the most lucid brains, as Logan Pearsall Smith has said, we come upon nests of woolly caterpillars. Seemingly sane men entrust their wealth to stargazers and their health to witch doctors. Giant planes throb through the stratosphere, but half their passengers are wearing magic amulets and are protected from harm by voodoo incantations. Hotels boast of express elevators and a telephone in every room, but omit thirteen from all floor and room numbers lest their guests be ill at ease.
Bergen Evans

The superstition of science scoffs at the superstition of faith.
James A. Froude

The religious superstitions of women perpetuate their bondage more than all other adverse influences.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Therefore let men withdraw themselves from errors; and laying aside corrupt superstitions, let them acknowledge their Father and Lord, whose excellence cannot be estimated, nor His greatness perceived, nor His beginning comprehended.
Lactantius

We're not as materialistic and incometax conscious as we think. At the moment our superstitions are tucked away, but come out sometimes in strange ways sex crimes, black masses.
Terence Fisher

Superstition is the poetry of life.
Johann von Goethe

Mankind are an incorrigible race. Give them but bugbears and idols it is all that they ask; the distinctions of right and wrong, of truth and falsehood, of good and evil, are worse than indifferent to them.
William Hazlitt

We find many things to which the prohibition of them constitutes the only temptation.
William Hazlitt

Superstition, bigotry and prejudice, ghosts though they are, cling tenaciously to life; they are shades armed with tooth and claw. They must be grappled with unceasingly, for it is a fateful part of human destiny that it is condemned to wage perpetual war against ghosts. A shade is not easily taken by the throat and destroyed.
Victor Hugo

It is the customary fate of new truths to begin as heresies and to end as superstitions.
Thomas Henry Huxley

We live in a time of twin credulities: the hunger for the miraculous combined with a servile awe of science. The mating of the two gives us superstition plus scientism.
Edward Abbey

The type of fig leaf which each culture employs to cover its social taboos offers a twofold description of its morality. It reveals that certain unacknowledged behavior exists and it suggests the form that such behaviour takes.
Freda Adler

Every rustic who delivers in the village alehouse his slow, infrequent sentences, may help to kill or keep alive the fatal superstitions which clog his race.
William Kingdon Clifford

Where the flag of truth waves unfurled, there you will find superstition waiting in ambush.
Platen

History warns us that it is the customary fate of new truths to begin as heresies and to end as superstitions.
Thomas Huxley

Superstitions and belief in magic are perennial in just the same way as religion, and something near to being universal among mankind; and why this is so may be interesting, but in most cases the beliefs themselves are devoid of interesting content, at least to me.
Bryan Magee

Superstitions are habits rather than beliefs.
Marlene Dietrich

The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out... without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable.
H. L. Mencken


The superstition in which we grew up,
Though we may recognize it, does not lose
Its power over usNot all are free
Who make mock of their chains.
Nathan the Wise, 1779

Basically I say a few prayers before a game and let that direct me, not superstitions.
Brian McBride
