A Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson on fate, secret, and fools

...even I ... if I had sat down to think, instead of raging at my fate, must have soon guessed the secret, and got free...I have seen wicked men and fools, a great many of both; and I believe they both get paid in the end; but the fools first.

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 - 1894)
