"Though are slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men" (Donne)

 

The first of these two lines states how death affects all kinds of people, rich and poor alike. Death also can came about by chance or fate, depending on who's opinion you are considering. For example, if two cars were driving in opposite directions along the same road, and one driver happens to fall asleep causing a fatal head on collision claiming the life of the other driver. Would you think the death of the driver was fate or chance? Some would say fate, that the driver was destined to be driving along that exact road at the exact instant that the other driver fell asleep. Others would say it was chance that the unsuspecting driver happened to come across another sleeping motorist. I personally would say it was fate. I believe everything happens for a reason, even in cases such as the example I gave.
