Chance will always rule history, because it is not possible to organize the state in such a way that it does not matter who rules.

  1. The original Spanish is:

    El azar regirá siempre la historia, porque no es posible organizar el estado de manera que no importe quien mande.

  2. The Spanish word azar, translated here as "chance" can also have a more negative meaning, such as "misfortune."
