Quote

I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, or the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill. But time and chance happenist to them all. For a man also knoweth not his time: as fishes that are taken in an evil net, as birds that are caught in a snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.”
Paladin

 

I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift,
nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise,
nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill;
but time and chance happeneth to them all.
For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes
that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare;
so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.”
Bible, Ecclesiastes 9:12 King James Version
