"Life is so much luck. And people are so frightened to admit that. They want to think that they control their life. They think 'I make my luck'. And you want to keep telling yourself that you're in control, but you're not in control. Ninety-nine per cent of it is luck, the luck of the genes, the luck of the draw, what happens during the day, the bomb that goes off on the other guy's bus."Het prentje (via John McNab): inderdaad, je zult bijvoorbeeld maar het ongeluk hebben om een slechtgehumeurde gorilla tegen het lijf te lopen. Bijvoorbeeld.
