- Life is not fair. The minute you enter the world, it wants to kill you. Fast or slow, it makes no difference. No one lives forever. Even cities die. It is because life is not fair that we... all of you... are best served to take as much of it as we can. Take power, strength, wealth, and all that you desire, because you can't take it with you when life is over.
