extract from Lucky Dreams
"When Morgan was in upper sixth form, an expatriate teacher from Britain made a statement which would stay with him the rest of his life. The teacher pointing to the members of his class said: "You are all philosophers here."
It was a strange idea for Morgan who had thought that philosophy always referred to high academic theory. Didn't university scholars do doctorates in philosophy covering a wide variety of subject areas? It wasn’t something for the ordinary man, let alone students who were still in secondary school.
As the years passed Morgan began to understand what the teacher meant, especially because he himself grew prone to deep thought about many of the puzzling things in life – his and others. Frequently he thought about the lives of the people he knew; people who were poor but trying; people who Fate seemed always to punish whether they were good or bad persons.
Morgan had a beef with Fate; capricious, mean, traitorous, yet at the same time seemingly impartial and foreordained. It made no sense and often had him confusedly wavering between his Christian teachings and the inevitability of life which nobody could predict, or change."
