entry arrow9:19 PM | Every Temporary Measure of Grace



"I happen to hate New Year’s celebrations. Everybody desperate to have fun. Trying to celebrate in some pathetic little way. Celebrate what? A step closer to the grave? That’s why I can’t say enough times, whatever love you can get and give, whatever happiness you can filch or provide, every temporary measure of grace, whatever works. And don’t kid yourself. Because it's by no means up to your own human ingenuity. A bigger part of your existence is luck than you’d like to admit. Christ, you know the odds of your father's one sperm from the billions finding the single egg that made you. Don’t think about it, you’ll have a panic attack."

~ Larry David in Woody Allen’s
Whatever Works [2009]
