Good Luck and Best Wishes Quotes

wish for luck

Every language has its own phrases, words, and idioms to wish people good luck. In English, even though some expressions are used more often than others, there are many different idiomatic expressions used to wish good luck that you should learn.

The idiomatic expressions are mainly used in their contracted forms. Among the most used expressions to wish the best of luck to someone are:

Good luck!

Break a leg!

Knock ‘em dead!

Blow them away!

Best of luck!

You’ll do great!

Fingers crossed!

Let’s look at the context in which these expressions to wish “good luck” are used in English.

Good Luck

In English, the most simple and common way to wish someone luck and the best for the future is by saying “good luck.” This idiom can be used both in formal and informal situations as it is quite generic.

Well, good luck to you all.

Anyway, good luck with Anna.

I’m guessing he’s not wishing her good luck.

Break a leg!

This expression literally means what it says, but, although it might seem weird, it’s a good way to wish someone the best of luck. This way of wishing someone luck in English is very common in the film industry, where, out of superstition, the expression “good luck” is not used. Here are some examples that use this expression:

Break a leg! Darling, you’ll be fabulous!

Big audition tomorrow, wish me luck!Break a leg!

I know you can do it! Break a leg!

Knock ‘em dead!

“Knock ‘em dead” is the contracted form of “knock them dead,” which literally means“kill them.”While it may sound morbid, it is actually an informal way to wish good luck that can be used in many different situations, especially when you want to encourage someone.

Go down and you knock ‘em dead, okay?

Knock ‘em dead, Ron!

Knock ‘em dead in L.A.!

Blow them away!

This idiom is similar to the previous one  and is quite informal. It’s figurative meaning is “Impress them!” while it literally translates as “Shoot them!”

Your ability to negotiate will blow them away.

Go and blow them away!

Our team spirit will blow them away!

Best of luck!

The expression “best of luck” is very similar to the expression “good luck.” “Best of luck” is an expression than can be used in both formal and informal situations.

Wish you the best of luck, dear!

Best of luck in future endeavors.

I wish you all the best of luck, boys.

You’ll do great!

Another way to wish someone “good luck” and to encourage them is by using the expression “You’ll do great,” which shows your faith in what they can achieve.

I’m sure you’ll do great!

You’ll do great here in Los Angeles.

You’ll do great!

Fingers crossed!

I got a bid in, so finger crossed!

Keep your fingers crossed that we come back.

I have to do the test, so fingers crossed!

As you can see, in English there are various ways of saying “good luck,” with both formal and informal expressions that show a positive attitude towards others.

"wish me luck" in Polish

wish for luck

You're not even asking someone to wish you luck. You're telling them to offer you the wish. You're practically ordering them to do it. It's at least a little audacious, if not downright pushy. 

Isn't it?

Is there any other instance in which one person tells another person exactly what to say as they part? Can you even imagine it?

"Tell me not to worry!"
"Say something positive about my future!"
"Tell me that you love me a lot!"
"Tell me that you hope my plane doesn't crash, but say it in a funny way."
"When you say goodbye, add something about how you're hoping I win the PowerBall tonight!"
"As I turn my back and walk away, wait two seconds and then tell me I have a nice ass!"

It doesn't happen. "Wish me luck" is the only time when we demand that another person say a particular set of words as part of their farewell.

It also creates this odd stage play of sorts, because there is only one response to "Wish me luck!" 

It's "Good luck."

By asking someone to wish you luck, you can be 99.9% sure of their response, thereby creating this predetermined bit of two-line dialogue. It's like a guarantee of the future. You can be certain that there will be no surprises for at least the next two or three seconds.   

Person 1: Wish me luck!
Person 2: Good luck.

Is there another instance when dialogue is so predetermined? Even when you tell someone that you love them, the responses can vary slightly.

Person 1: I love you.

Possible responses:

I love you, too.
Me, too.
Love you, too.
Super love you!
Don't forget to pick up milk on the way home. 

"Wish me luck" is weird. I know that most of us don't think very much about it when we say it. It's simply a phrase that we use in place of the standard "Good bye" or "See you later." Most of the time, we're probably not trying to solicit wishes of good fortune from another person. We're simply trying to make an exit. 

Still, it's weird, even if you're using it innocuously. It's aggressive and presumptuous and authoritarian. It forces you and your companion into a brief and boring stage play. It's meaningless chatter laced with undertones of bellicosity.

I won't be annoyed if you ask me to wish you luck, but I may say something other than "Good luck," and perhaps something equally aggressive, presumptuous, and authoritarian.

Just for kicks.
