4 thoughts on “Fortune Gives, And Fortune Takes Away

  1. Made a Twitter account just to be able to post on your site Quintus. Really like the article which perfectly describes the fickleness of life itself. You can do all the right things but the world may still conspire against you; or do everything wrong and yet the world showers you with blessings.

    It’s paradoxical, one could say unfair. But such is life. Such is Fortune. One of the key points I’ve taken from your writings is to simply accept it. As long as I act (or at least try to) in a virtuous manner – who cares what the rest think.

    Yet I’ll be honest – sometimes I do have problems with accepting the fact that incompetent (borderline criminal) people are living in luxury while others in squalor.
