Gorey Determinist

I disagree with the quotation about the saddest words of tongue or pen being what might have been. I don’t think anything might have been. What is, is. That’s the whole idea. Any other idea is remote, such as, “Oh, if only things had been different, Jeanette and I would be gliding down the Nile in a gondola,” or “Harold and I would be in Antarctica together,” or “I would be a famous movie star.” All of this is absolute nonsense. What is, is, and what might have been could never have existed.
