"I don’t believe in fate. I don’t believe in cushioning your insecurities with a system of belief that tells you ‘Don’t worry. This may be your life but you’re not in control. There is something or someone looking out for you - it’s already organised.’ It’s all chance and choice, which is far more frightening."
