Fate quotes
Fate
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
One must either be the hammer or the anvil.

- Proverb, German
Fate is not an eagle, it creeps like a rat.

- Bowen, Elizabeth
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
The stern hand of fate has scourged us to an elevation where we can see the great everlasting things which matter for a nation -- the great peaks we had forgotten, of Honor, Duty, Patriotism, and clad in glittering white, the great pinnacle of Sacrifice pointing like a rugged finger to Heaven.

- George, David Lloyd
You ask, "What is the Good?" I suppose God Himself is the Good; and it is this, in addition to a thousand things, which makes me feel the absolute certainty of a resurrection, and a hope that this, our present life, instead of being an ultimate one, which is to decide our fate for ever, is merely some sort of chrysalis state in which man's faculties are so narrow and cramped, his chances (I speak of the millions, not of units) of knowing the Good so few, that he may have chances hereafter, perhaps continually fresh ones, to all eternity.

- Letters and Memories. 1852.
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
Evil is done without effort, naturally, it is the working of fate; good is always the product of an art.

- Baudelaire, Charles
All are architects of fate. So look not mournfully into the past. It comes not back again.

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The sufferings that fate inflicts on us should be borne with patience, what enemies inflict with manly courage.

- Thucydides
Man is his own star and the soul that can render an honest and perfect man commands all light, all influence, all fate.

- John Fletcher
Wherever the fates lead us let us follow.

- Virgil
Objectives are not fate; they are direction. They are not commands; they are commitments. They do not determine the future; they are means to mobilize the resources and energies of the business for the making of the future.

- Drucker, Peter F.
The unpredictability inherent in human affairs is due largely to the fact that the by-products of a human process are more fateful than the product.

- Hoffer, Eric
Why need we suppose that heaven is to be one vast lazy retrospect? Why is not eternity to have action and change, yet both like God, compatible with rest and immutability? This earth is but one minor planet of a minor system. Are there no more worlds? Will there not be incident and action springing from these when the fate of this world is decided? Has the evil one touched this alone? Is it not self-conceit which makes us think the redemption of this earth the one event of eternity?

- Letters. 1842.
Drop the question what tomorrow may bring, and count as profit every day that Fate allows you.

- Horace
Fate is the endless chain of causation, whereby things are; the reason or formula by which the world goes on.

- Zeno, Citium
The fates have given mankind a patient soul.

- Homer
Let us, then be up and doing, With a heart for any fate; Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labour and to wait.

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
There is no fate that cannot be surmounted by scorn.

- Albert Camus
