Fate quotes

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

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

The very flexibility and ease which make men's friendships so agreeable while they endure, make them the easier to destroy and forget. And a man who has a few friends, or one who has a dozen (if there be any one so wealthy on this earth), cannot forget on how precarious a base his happiness reposes; and how by a stroke or two of fate --a death, a few light words, a piece of stamped paper, a woman's bright eyes --he may be left, in a month, destitute of all.

- Stevenson, Robert Louis

If you are really Master of your Fate, it shouldn't make any difference to you whether Cleopatra or the Bearded Lady is your mate.

- Nash, Ogden

You were a stranger to sorrow: therefore Fate has cursed you.

- Euripides

The fate of love is that it always seems too little or too much.

- Barr, Amelia E.

It is the strange fate of man, that even in the greatest of evils the fear of the worst continues to haunt him.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

O divine art of subtlety and secrecy! Through you we learn to be invisible, through you inaudible and hence we can hold the enemy's fate in our hands.

- Sun Tzu

Fate is nothing but the deeds committed in a prior state of existence.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Each man the architect of his own fate.

- Appius Claudius Caecus

Human reason needs only to will more strongly than fate, and she is fate.

- Mann, Thomas

Fate leads him who follows it, and drags him who resist.

- Plutarch

The individual must not merely wait and criticize, he must defend the cause the best he can. The fate of the world will be such as the world deserves.

- Albert Einstein

Man is never honestly the fatalist, nor even the stoic. He fights his fate, often desperately. He is forever entering bold exceptions to the rulings of the bench of gods. This fighting, no doubt, makes for human progress, for it favors the strong and the brave. It also makes for beauty, for lesser men try to escape from a hopeless and intolerable world by creating a more lovely one of their own.

- H. L. Mencken

Chance happens to all, but to turn chance to account is the gift of few.

- Bulwer-Lytton, Edward G.

Man is tormented by no greater anxiety than to find someone quickly to whom he can hand over that great gift of freedom with which the ill-fated creature is born.

- Fyodor Dostoevsky

It's the niceties that make the difference fate gives us the hand, and we play the cards.

- Schopenhauer, Arthur

For the ordinary man is passive. Within a narrow circle (home life, and perhaps the trade unions or local politics) he feels himself master of his fate, but against major events he is as helpless as against the elements. So far from endeavoring to influence the future, he simply lies down and lets things happen to him.

- Orwell, George

Whatever else may divide us, Europe is our common home; a common fate has linked us through the centuries, and it continues to link us today.

- Leonid Brezhnev

Fate chooses your relations, you choose your friends.

- Jacques Delille
