A brief annotation
Stroke of luck can change crisis into opportunity. 

Everyone needs good fortune in business. Sometimes just a lucky break can steam up our initiative. Giving a chance to good fortune is a great idea. This is what ancient Romans did, paying homage to Mercury – the patron of merchants and travelers, the god of commerce, wit and volubility. Mercury is often portrayed with a Caduceus bearing the inscription «FORTUNA REDUX» – a wish for a safe return home.
