Once is Luck. Hugh O'Neill on Confidence Levels
Once is luck.
Twice is coincidence.
Three times is a system.
UNC business professor Hugh O'Neill told me this in 1996. We were talking about confidence levels for a cause-and-effect business hypothesis. It also applies elsewhere.
Once is happenstance
Twice is coincidence
Three times is enemy action

Damn, I wanted to quote "Auric Goldfinger" / Ian Fleming, but Barry beat me to it.
