There's a very fortune cookie-esque line from a book I read recently that I found quite reassuring.
It was something along the lines of, "Life has to be encountered with a mixture of sheer ignorance *check*, and blind faith *check*."
"Sheer ignorance because we can't ever know what's going to happen. Ever."
"And blind faith that, this time, the roll of the dice will bring us luck."
Now, I want a fortune cookie.
