Fate quotes
Fate
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
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.
That consciousness is everything and that all things begin with a thought. That we are responsible for our own fate, we reap what we sow, we get what we give, we pull in what we put out. I know these things for sure.

- Madonna
It has been my fate, and one's fate one accepts. It's a dreadful thing to have to say, in so wicked a world.

- Henry James
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
Knowledge is a deadly friend when no-one sets the rules. The fate of all mankind, I see, is in the hands of fools.

- King Crimson
Our fate, whatever it is to be, will be overcome by patience under it.

- Virgil
The men and woman who make the best boon companions seem to have given up hope of doing something else...some defect of talent or opportunity has cut them off from their pet ambition and has thus left them with leisure to take an interest in their lives of others. Your ambition may be, it makes him keep his thoughts at home. But the heartbroken people -- if I may use the word in a mild, benevolent sense -- the people whose wills are subdued to fate, give us consolation, recognition, and welcome.

- Chapman, John Jay
Human reason needs only to will more strongly than fate, and she is fate.

- Mann, Thomas
It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

- William Ernest Henley
When the will defies fear, when duty throws the gauntlet down to fate, when honor scorns to compromise with death -- that is heroism.

- Ingersoll, Robert Green
Whatever the universal nature assigns to any man at any time is for the good of that man at that time.

- Aurelius, Marcus
The lofty pine is oftenest shaken by the winds; High towers fall with a heavier crash; And the lightning strikes the highest mountain.

- Horace
All human things are subject to decay, and when fate summons, monarchs must obey.

- Dryden, John
There is no fate that cannot be surmounted by scorn.

- Albert Camus
SCARABEE, n. The same as scarabaeus. He fell by his own hand Beneath the great oak tree. He'd traveled in a foreign land. He tried to make her understand The dance that's called the Saraband, But he called it Scarabee. He had called it so through an afternoon, And she, the light of his harem if so might be, Had smiled and said naught. O the body was fair to see, All frosted there in the shine o'the moon -- Dead for a Scarabee And a recollection that came too late. O Fate! They buried him where he lay, He sleeps awaiting the Day, In state, And two Possible Puns, moon-eyed and wan, Gloom over the grave and then move on. Dead for a Scarabee! Fernando Tapple

- Ambrose Bierce
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
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
Yet ah! why should they know their fate, Since sorrow never comes too late, And happiness too swiftly flies? Thought would destroy their paradise. No more; where ignorance is bliss, 'Tis folly to be wise.

- Thomas Gray
Fate leads him who follows it, and drags him who resist.

- Plutarch
