I had no say in the matter.
Every moment in your life is a turning and every one a choosing.
Somewhere you made a choice. All followed to this. The accounting is scrupulous.
The shape is drawn. No line can be erased.
I had no belief in your ability to move a coin to your bidding. How could you?
A person’s path through the world seldom changes
and even more seldom will it change abruptly.
And the shape of your path was visible from the beginning.
Chigurh, in No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy
