you added some extra words such as "luck makes him lazy and depend on others". Laziness and self-dependence have not been mentioned in original paragraph.
To your this point let me quote passage
Luck lies in bed and wishes the postman would bring him news of a legacy; labour turns out at six and with busy pen and ringing hammer lays the foundation of a competence.
The highlighted line indicates that beliver of luck does not want to do anything himself and relies on others.
This is my opinion. You can give your own further. And, thanks for your analysis.
1-Actually, we have to follow rules. Rules are important to get golden marks.
2-To count the word you need to follow same rule as MS-Word does. Precis must be 1/3. 1-2 words concession is allowed but depends on length of Paragraphs. For paragraphs having more than 200 words 5 words concession is allowed.
3- "Luck lies in bed and wishes the postman would bring him news of a legacy". Author is trying to say that Luck lies in dreams that someone tell him good news. It does not means Laziness.
Hope this will help you.

I think, to reconcile these two definitions in a third. If man is a knower and an efficient doer, it is only because he is also a talker In order to be Faber and Sapiens, Homo must first be loquax, the loquacious one. Without language we should merely be hairless chimpanzees. Indeed \vc should be some thing much worse. Possessed of a high IQ but no language, we should be like the Yahoos of Gulliver's Travels- Creatures too clever to be guided by instinct, too Self-centered to live in a state of animal grace, and therefore condemned forever, frustrated and malignant, between contented apehood and aspiring'humanity. It was language that made possible the accumulation of knowledge and the broadcasting of information. It was language that permitted the expression of religious insight, the formulation of ethical ideals, the codification to laws, It was language, in a word, that turned us into human beings and gave birth to civilization.

P.S. this precis is follow up to the above suggestion. Let's break this!

Here is my attempt for above precis:


Importance of language

Man without language would be an animal, an uncivilized and intelligent being. Language made him an intelligent being and the creator of tools. It enabled man to receive knowledge and information. It also provided him conduit to express religious vision. Besides, it enabled him to enact ethical and legal norms. Therefore, it transformed an animal into a civilized and intellectual being.


P.S. word count of the precis is 62. While, original passage is of 189.
Critical review is welcomed.
Thanks,
