What I’m reading #2

Book: The Master and Margarita
Author: Mikhail Bulgakov

Excerpt:
“But this is what disturbs me: if there is no God, then, the question is, who is in control of man’s life and the whole order of things on earth?”
“Man himself is in control,” was Bezdomny’s quick and angry reply to what was, admittedly, a not very clear question.
“I’m sorry,” replied the stranger in a soft voice, “but in order to be in control, you have to have a definite plan for at least a reasonable period of time. So how, may I ask, can man be in control if he can’t even draw up a plan for a ridiculously short period of time, say, a thousand years, and is, moreover, unable to ensure his own safety for even the next day?”
