If you only care about the outcome, you’ll miss the beauty of the game.
Life is like a chess game against a cruel, unforgiving grandmaster in which you – the average Joe – don’t have the slightest chance of winning. Of course, in the beginning, you’re not aware of who you’re playing against, and of the fact that your opponent controls all the aspects of the game. Once you realize your disadvantages, it’s too late. Anyways, you didn’t have a choice, to begin with, since the game was forced upon you.
