This sounds familiar... Are these song lyrics? Or a famous quote?
Here in Denmark at least it's a common saying that if you don't have luck in games/gambling, you have luck in love instead. Don't know its origin, or if it's a saying elsewhere too.
Sfortunato al gioco, fortunato in amore/uheldig i(?) spillet, heldig i kærligheden. To mock your friends when they lose in Italy.
Yes, in Spanish we use the same phrase
I Should be So Lucky by Kylie Minogue
Song i s what else matters if youre LIL If you take me that will make me Oh so LIL
