Through pure accident of birth, I've managed to stay relatively youthful.
Conservatives tend to see the world more in terms of good-versus-evil and, for some of them, the nightmare is a disarmed citizenry that can be preyed upon by criminals.

Success isn't something you achieve by accident, but rather by design.
David H. Murdock

I ended up in college by accident. Everything in my life, I ended up in by accident. I was down south in this high school doing whatever. It could just not contain me.
