Control Your Fate
"The dice had already been tossed, the cards shuffled and drawn. He was what he was, whether he knew it yet or not." - Barry Lyga, I Hunt Killers, page 134.
In I Hunt Killers Jazz often has problems dealing with who he is and where he comes from. He questions everything about himself. I like this quote for a couple reasons. One, is because it implies that Jazz will be a killer like his dad (even though probably not). Two, it's basically saying we cant control our fate. Call me crazy, but I like that idea.
I like the idea of not being able to control our lives. If we screw them up, but we're already predestined to screw them up, then it's not our fault. I don't think people like the idea of not being able to be in control of their fates because it makes them sad. I think some things are just meant to be though. I think if people stopped trying to control every single little details of their lives and other peoples lives they would be a lot happier. Stop stressing and just live the way you were meant to live. Have fun while you can.
