Not What We Deserve

House: People get what they get. It’s got nothing to do with what they deserve.   (House MD, ep. 5×01, Death Changes Everything)

Reminds me of a (fictional?) poem quoted in a crime novel I read on my vacation:

“People don’t die because they’re bad.

They die because they’re available.” (The Falls, Ian Rankin)
