Reverend Franc Austin

This quote was added by frickinrick
Do not say "there but for the grace of God go I." Say "there but for random chance go I." This is not about religion; it is about truly recognizing that you cannot take credit for your good fortune.

Yeah I guess maybe you're right. Kind of a pointless statement in that case though, since believing either one is in control of your fate places a person's locus of control on external factors and results in inertia, blame, shame, and powerlessness.

The quote isn't about random chance vs. the results of one's actions, it's about random chance vs. divine intervention.

This site introduces you to some pretty sad ideologies. Idk who this guy is but man, what a douche. Random chance is not random. Taking into consideration simple principles of probability, it's obvious that the actions we take factor into what happens to us greatly. "Good fortune" is often times simply a result of consistently applied positive action over a long period of time creating opportunity. A person who believes this quote would end up depressed and probably suicidal for no reason at all. Smh
