    Default successful line

    If there is a line on one's palm that signifies the success in future. I should call this line ' successful line ' or ' the line of success ' ? Or simply use the noun ' success ' as an adjective ' success line ' ?

    What is your opinion ?

    I would say call it either the line of success or the success line. (I favor the latter.)

    (Say: "There is a line on one's palm that signifies success in the future.")

    :)

    Always remember that patience is a virtue.
    It will help you if it doesn't hurt you.

    Is that true? Not really, I think. I've noticed people with big bucks without a clear fortune line.
