Yesterday in the pub I had a chat with an old man who felt he was a very lucky person. He said: ‘All my life, the future was a threat to me. But now, when I know I’ve none, I have nothing to worry about. It’s the first time I really feel free and happy.
‘You know,' he continued, 'No one has a future; not even yourself, It’s just a pity that it took me so long to realize it. I could have had so much more fun.’ He sighed for a moment, paused, and started laughing again.
