"You’re going to do what you’re going to do. You know that laws have no meaning. They never stopped anyone from doing anything. Nothing can stop you from ending up the way you’re going to end up. You look at all those people you said you would never end up like, and now you know them on a first name basis. They’re not such bad people if you give them half a chance. In fact, you all have a lot in common. They make you feel good. They’re not trail guides to the new nowhere, they’re your friends. I don’t hate you. I don’t know you. As you’re falling off you’ll see that my arms were too short to catch you anyway. You’ll end up right where you’re supposed to be. Don’t be surprised when you get there. Everything you did was a step in that direction. There’s no such thing as bad luck."
