|“||There is good and bad luck in this world... That's... something I've been told... There are situations where if you'd gotten somewhere one second sooner... You might have been in an accident or avoided an accident... Or... You met or didn't meet someone important when you went somewhere... Things where the result... is good or bad. And the cause is good or evil. There are situations like that... I've been told. But that is a misapprehension. A societal misunderstanding caused by large numbers of people living together. Once you clear away everything extraneous and view each individual in individual situations... What we find existing around us is... simply... Strength and Weakness. Good and bad luck... Good and evil, legal and illegal... You can forget all that. There exist simply the strong that survive and the weak which are destroyed. Those two, and nothing more.||„|
