Proverbs generally carry multiple layers of meaning despite the fact that they are commonly only comprised of four characters.
These short sayings and idioms each sum up a larger, well-known cultural story or myth, the moral of which is meant to convey some greater truth or provide guidance in everyday life. The horse is also a famous symbol within mythological composite creatures like the longma or dragon-horse, which was associated with one of the legendary sage rulers.
The meaning of the proverb is only apparent when one is familiar with the accompanying story of SAI Went, which begins with an old man who lived on the frontier: But SAI Went simply asked, “How could we know it is not a bad thing for me?” One day, his son went out for a ride with the new horse.
The neighbors once again expressed their condolences to SAI Went, but SAI Went simply said, “How could we know it is not a good thing for me?” One year later, the Emperor’s army arrived in the village to recruit all able-bodied men to fight in the war. The proverb can be read to have multiple implications when it comes to the concept of luck and fortune.
I know luck isn't involved, but it conveys the idea of “I hope it goes well,” which would not be that much harder to say! In our culture, that's a phrase expressing wishes for success, so sometimes it's just a kind thing to say.
I suppose it is preferable to suggesting we put our hope in luck. What I consciously avoid, in casual expressions, is anything suggesting God's blessing. This is because I don't like to take the topic of God or his blessings and providence lightly, as if they're appropriate for a throwaway phrase.
This is why, for a quick and casual expression, I will sometimes just say “good luck.” I'll also say “that was a blessing” instead of 'that was lucky' and say that was “providential” instead of something was random or pure luck. My wife even refers to Lucky Charms as Godspeed Charms, it's great.
In the popular German Bible translations you will actually find verses like 1. English Bibles read “prosper” instead of luck in this verse (just looked it up, because it seemed to me that luck was something you think is completely incompatible with the Bible, and I was wondering how you would handle this verse).
As long as we do not believe that something happens by chance/without control/randomly/by some blind fate we can use the word luck if we mean something that has a positive effect on someone's live or that makes him/her feel better. I also think that the word luck appears in the OT Apocrypha more often, but I would have to look up the verses again to say anything more detailed about this topic.
“May you find yourself to have the appearance of being autonomously successful in said endeavor with the assistance of various circumstantial accidents.” “Hope it/all goes well” sounds fairly neutral, though I am sure we would not want to say “God speed” or “Providential Blessings” to an ungodly endeavor.
It would seem to be dependent on context as to what we choose to say to people instead of “good luck “. My roommate in college used to always say that luck was “poor man's pantheism”.
I have always remembered that and to this day that pops into my head whenever I hear anyone mention luck. The Horse occupies the seventh position in the Chinese zodiac, after the Snake and before the Goat.
