Quotes
It's not exactly a quote but I'm sure a number here have said that. Without any qualifications you might find times it's not true but something like it I would say is true: "if something is not impossible then if you try often enough it'll happen" Of course, you can't "try" exactly the same way each time etc., etc. but it's true enough.

improbable -> probable
Ah I do see one big difference. A very low probability event that finally happens after a huge number of trails doesn't become "probable" it "happens". The particular event is still low probability but the chance of it occurring in the large number of trails becomes near one.
