RARA-AVIS: Ice Harvest, luck and fate

BROYE said of the quote from a previous post:

"There is a big difference between Luck(Chance) and Fate."

Absolutely, fate is an overall picture, maybe even a life paradigm, that includes luck in enourmously bad proportions.

Fate is the doom, luck is the series of events that brings on the doom.
