Recent events in my life have proven just because someone is good or wants to be good does mean they will survive.
Yes, all those cancer deaths could be prevented. If only they were good people they would have survived.
Good people claim that virtue trumps money, yet they seem to question that when confronted with the logical outcome of this belief.
Being good is supposed to be its own reward. Anyone who believes this will have that belief tested constantly.
Oh, God, no. They don't finish last, well, not always.
But they don't always finish first.
Good is a point of view, Anakin. The Sith and the Jedi are similar in almost every way, including their quest for greater power.
Welcome to adulthood, sad to say.
R4, you aren't even remotely funny, no matter how many threads you post that photo in.
We don't want to see you eating dinner.
I've always considered myself "good". I'm just a plain ole nice guy at heart. And I have been fucked over and over because of it. I've always felt like luck was not on my side.
Of course, I say this while sitting at my breakfast bar on my Mac in a beautiful penthouse condo and sitting next to my partner of 15 years.
So, while I feel like the world has always been against me....I cannot complain (at 40 years old).
Keep being a good guy OP. It might just pay off
OP, you are both shallow and dull. This is like Bizarro Reader's Digest thinking.
The correct expression is "NICE guys finish last."
True. Nice and Good are not at all the same thing.
R7 is not as good as he thinks he is...
"A gentleman always finds himself in dire straits. The small man, finding himself there, will throw over all restraint." – Confucius
OP, is your opening sentence horribly phrased or just wrong? It feels like it should say: “Recent events in my life have proven just because someone is good or wants to be good doesN’T mean they will survive.”
You could also do with introducing the occasional comma.
Life has proven to me that no good deed goes unpunished. Seriously, the worst people in the world have the best happen to them good people get shit on in every way.
