"Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you’ve got to be kind."
"Life is always a delicate dance of choice and chance, a balance of will and fate. Just when you feel fully in-charge, something descends to remind you that in-charge is a delusional condition; and just when you feel life’s victim, you might pick yourself up and take control in ways that take your breath away. Each of us is free and fated, fated and free."
