"Explorers strive, but fate decides. You can prepare and practice for an expedition, but there's only so much a person can do... Sometimes you have to put your life in fate's hands.

"At the end of a long life, some beings wish to leave the world and stroll in a field of flowers. Does this desire ever come to fruition? I do not know... but this beautiful deck of luck wafers makes me wonder. Even we machines ponder the great power-down at the end of the trail."
