On being told to butt out

On being told to butt out

OK, I will leave this up to you
Don’t forget that God helps those who help themselves
The Fates, while infinitely competent, are also infinitely indifferent.
Sitting around counting on them is a bad bet.
They will of course manage everything,
but that’s not necessarily good news for any given mortal.
