  • God never promised that the road would be easy. Have you ever heard the saying "a smooth sea never made a skillful sailor"? Life isn't about being good so good things happen, its about being a good person even when the bad things happen.

  • Because life's just not fair. There's nobody pulling any strings making it happen that way, it just does.

  • Never understood this myself, when my dad died unexpectedly I wondered a lot, how some son of a b...can go on with life when a man with a heart of gold had his end. It is just the way life is, unfair.

  • Because life is hard and then you die. If you want the good parts of life then you have to learn to survive the bad parts. You live. You learn. Then you die and go home. And if you haven't learned your lesson, you keep coming back until you do. No sky daddies to keep you safe. That's just the nature of life on sump-pit earth.
