Weight: the Myth of Atlas and Heracles - Jeanette Winterson

This quote was added by theletterjay
The ancients believed in Fate because they recognized how hard it is for anyone to change anything. The pull of past and future is so strong that the present is crushed by it. We lie helpless in the force of patterns inherited and patterns re-enacted by our own behavior. The burden is intolerable.
