    lucky

    In the following paragraph, what does the last word "lucky" mean? "Lucky" can mean good fortune, but it can also mean chance, which implies either good or bad luck.

    The capacity to make such dubious gifts is a mysterious quality of New York. It can destroy an individual, or it can fulfill him, depending a good deal on luck. No one should come to New York to live unless he is willing to be lucky.
