Never the same

Gregor’s quest reunites him with his bat, Ares, and the rebellious princess Luxa. They descend into the dangerous Waterway in search of the Bane. If Gregor does not fulfil the prophecy, his life – and the Underland – will never be the same again.

Suzanne Collins – Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane

Of course, Gregor’s life will never be the same whether he fulfils the prophecy or not.

Neither will yours be.

Even if you lived at a time when your society was relatively stable, where you lived the same kind of life as your parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, your life would never be the same again.

The question is what kind of never-the-same you’re going to choose and work for.
