Fate quotes
Fate
Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.

- Seneca
There is tide in the affairs of men, which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries; on such a full sea we are now afloat; and we must take the current the clouds folding and unfolding beyond the horizon. when it serves, or lose our ventures.

- Shakespeare, William
He either fears his fate too much, Or his deserts are small, That dares not put it to the touch, To gain or lose it all.

- Graham, James
The bitterest tragic element in life to be derived from an intellectual source is the belief in a brute Fate or Destiny.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
What is a modern poet’s fate? To write his thoughts upon a slate; The critic spits on what is done, Gives it a wipe—and all is gone.

- Thomas Hood
We were that generation called silent, but we were silent neither, as some thought, because we shared the period's official optimism nor, as others thought, because we feared its official repression. We were silent because the exhilaration of social action seemed to many of us just one more way of escaping the personal, of masking for a while that dread of the meaningless which was man's fate.

- Didion, Joan
Live not as though there were a thousand years ahead of you. Fate is at your elbow; make yourself good while life and power are still yours.

- Aurelius, Marcus
Public opinion is a weak tyrant compared with our own private opinion. What a man thinks of himself, that is which determines, or rather indicates, his fate.

- Henry David Thoreau
Such is the miraculous nature of the future of exiles: what is first uttered in the impotence of an overheated apartment becomes the fate of nations.

- Rushdie, Salman
Destiny has two ways of crushing us -- by refusing our wishes and by fulfilling them.

- Amiel, Henri Frederic
Throw a lucky man into the sea, and he will come up with a fish in his mouth.

- Proverb, Arabian
The fate of our times is characterized by rationalization and intellectualization and, above all, by the disenchantment of the world. Precisely the ultimate and most sublime values have retreated from public life either into the transcendental realm of mystic life or into the brotherliness of direct and personal human relations. It is not accidental that our greatest art is intimate and not monumental.

- Weber, Max
While the fates permit, live happily; life speeds on with hurried step, and with winged days the wheel of the headlong year is turned.

- Seneca
Ideas are powerful things, requiring not a studious contemplation but an action, even if it is only an inner action. Their acquisition obligates each man in some way to change his life, even if it is only his inner life. They demand to be stood for. They dictate where a man must concentrate his vision. They determine his moral and intellectual priorities. They provide him with allies and make him enemies. In short, ideas impose an interest in their ultimate fate which goes far beyond the realm of the merely reasonable.

- Decter, Midge
Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent's fate.

- Sun-tzu
Our future may lie beyond our vision, but it is not completely beyond our control. It is the shaping impulse of America that neither fate nor nature nor the irresistible tides of history, but the work of our own hands, matched to reason and principle, that will determine our destiny. There is pride in that, even arrogance, but there is also experience and truth. In any event, it is the only way we can live.

- Robert F. Kennedy
A man's character is his fate.

- Heraclitus
Let us, then, be up and doing, with a heart for any fate; still achieving, still pursuing, learn to labor and to wait.

- Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
The only comfort I can see in the tragedies of war is that they bring us all face to face with the realities of human life, as it has been in all ages, giving us sterner and yet more loving, more human, and more divine thoughts about ourselves, and our business here, and the fate of those who are gone, and awakening us out of the luxurious, frivolous, and unreal dream (full nevertheless of hard judgments) in which we have been living so long, to trust in a living Father who is really and practically governing this world and all worlds, and who willeth that none should perish.

- Letters and Memories. 1855.
If you believe in fate, believe in it, at least, for your good.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
