If you wish in this world to advance your merits you're bound to enhance; You must stir it and stump it, and blow your own trumpet, Or, trust me, you haven't a chance.
I know that age to age succeeds, Blowing a noise of tongues and deeds, A dust of systems and of creeds.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Du hast zwar keine Chance, aber nutze sie!
Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.
Your mind is nirvana.
