“When you want something, the whole universe will conspire to help you.”

No it won’t. The universe will fuck you. The universe is hostile to your existence. Leave the shimmering blue cocoon of earth’s atmosphere for a moment and the universe will annihilate you — that’s the truth. Remove the oxygen molecules from the air you breathe and you will soon cease to exist. The universe conspires to destroy you. It’s your mission to fend it off for as long as possible.

On a ‘bullshitometer’ that maxes out at 10, this platitude pulls an eleven.
