Quote of the Day
I don't believe that if you do good, good things will happen. Everything is completely accidental and random.

Things don't just happen in this world of arising and passing away. We don't live in some kind of crazy, accidental universe. Things happen according to certain laws, laws of nature. Laws such as the law of karma, which teaches us that as a certain seed gets planted, so will that fruit be.

Joyce Carol Oates
