"Why do things happen?"

"I don't believe there's really an answer to that question. Things don't really happen for a reason. Just becuase you do good things doesn't mean good things are going to happen to you back. Sometimes when people do cruel evil things, good goes back to them."

"Why? It doesn't make sense, it's not fair."

"Life isn't fair."

"But why not? Why isn't life fair, why can't it be fair?"

"Because, when things happen, they shape you, you become who you are. And you, my dear girl, are a wonderful person."

"But why am I am good person? Why are other people bad people? It doesn't make sense. Why does this world have bad people in the first place?"

"Look at it this way, life is one long obstacle course, there may be some easy parts that you pass through quickly, but the rough time in life it a large wall with no footholds to hang onto, you were able to pass this obstacle, others, well they are still trying to conquer it, and some may not ever overcome that obstacle."

"Yes, I realive that, but why can't they overcome it?"

"That question cannot be answered either. Maybe it's because they aren't strong enough in the mind, they can't really set theirselves to it."

"Why not?"

"My dear, you are too full of questions for anyone. I'm sorry I do not supply the answers to your questions in my mind, but I do not, and that is just how it will be, and always will be."

"But why?"

"Because my darling, I am only human."

"... Only human..."
