Fate quotes by Muriel Barbery
#1. The gifts of fate come with a price. For those who have been favored by life's indulgence, rigorous respect in matters of beauty is a non-negotiable requirement. Language is a bountiful gift and its usage, an elaboration of community and society, is a sacred work. Language and usage evolve over time: elements change, are forgotten or reborn, and while there are instances where transgression can become the source of an even greater wealth, this does not alter the fact that to be entitled to the liberties of playfulness or enlightened misusage when using language, one must first and foremost have sworn one's total allegiance. Society's elect, those whom fate has spared from the servitude that is the lot of the poor, must, consequently, shoulder the double burden of worshipping and respecting the splendors of language. #Quote by Muriel Barbery
Fate quotes by Haruki Murakami
#2. I was twenty-nine years old. In six months my twenties would be over. A whole decade since living here. One big blank. Not one thing of value had I gotten out of it, not one meaningful thing had I done. Boredom was all there was.
How were things before? Surely there had to have been something positive. Had there been anything that really moved me, anything that really moved anyone? Maybe, but still it was all gone now. Lost, perhaps meant to be lost. Nothing I can do about it, got to let it go.
At least I was still around. If the only good Indian is a dead Indian, it was my fate to go on living.
What for?
To tell tales to a stone wall?
Really, now. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Fate quotes by Immanuel Kant
#3. Our reason has this peculiar fate that, with reference to one class of its knowledge, it is always troubled with questions which cannot be ignored, because they spring from the very nature of reason, and which cannot be answered, because they transcend the powers of human reason. #Quote by Immanuel Kant
Fate quotes by Amy Tan
#4. There's no hope. There's no reason to keep trying.
Because you must. This is not hope. Not reason. This is your fate. This is your life, what you must do. #Quote by Amy Tan
Fate quotes by Dylan Saccoccio
#5. Foreword To you, that you may awaken to understand that the whole universe is a dance of energy, and that energy is God, and that energy is you. You are something that the whole universe is doing, that God is doing, just as a wave is something that the whole ocean is doing. The real you, the energy, the soul, is not a puppet that life pushes around. The real you is the whole universe. The real you is God, destined to follow no one, destined to ignite the ether, experience life from an individual perspective, and take part in the creation. So this is for you, my fellow creators, my fellow gods, and my fellow selves, that coincidence may never disguise itself with the mask of fate and torment you, that every moment be meaningful, and that no experience be lost #Quote by Dylan Saccoccio
Fate quotes by James Fallows
#6. Societies are healthiest when their radius of trust is broad and when people feel they can influence their own fate. #Quote by James Fallows
Fate quotes by Sabahattin Ali
#7. People can only get to know each other up to a point and then they make up the rest, until one day, seeing their mistake, they turn their backs on sadness and run away. Would this ever happen, if they stopped believing their dreams and made do with what was possible? If everyone accepted what was natural, then no one would suffer disappointment, no one would curse fate. We have every right to see our situation as pitiful, but we must confine our pity to ourselves. To pity another is to assume superiority and that is why we must never think we are superior to others, or that others are more unfortunate. #Quote by Sabahattin Ali
Fate quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#8. and kisses are a better fate than wisdom - e. e. cummings, "since feeling is first #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
Fate quotes by John Marsden
#9. I guess our fate is up to us now. And we've
been there before, of course. There's something quite comforting
about it in a strange way. We've learnt a few things. We know we've
got a few things going for us. A bit of imagination, a bit of guts
sometimes, a bit of spark. #Quote by John Marsden
Fate quotes by Najwa Zebian
#10. Take responsibility.
Just as you can't deny that you can feel love and hate, happiness and sadness, anger and ease of mind, or tiredness and relaxation, you can't deny that you have a fate that, sometimes, you can't control. That doesn't mean that it takes control over you. You can't deny that you have words that need to be spoken. You can't deny that you have a choice. You can't deny the ability that you can say no. You can't deny the ability that you have the freedom to make a decision and defend it. You can't deny injustice when you see it, unfairness when you feel it, oppression when you witness it. Stop blaming the world around you for wronging you. Take responsibility for the nos you could have said but chose not to, the words you could have said but didn't, instead wrapping your mouth with your own hands and remaining silent against what needed to be addressed. Take responsibility for the choices you could have made but restrained yourself from making. #Quote by Najwa Zebian
Fate quotes by Jeffrey Sachs
#11. The defining challenge of the 21st century will be to face the reality that humanity shares a common fate on a crowded planet. #Quote by Jeffrey Sachs
Fate quotes by Claudius Claudianus
#12. They are raised on high that they may be dashed to pieces with a greater fall. #Quote by Claudius Claudianus
Fate quotes by Elizabeth Lim
#13. Whatever history remembered of us, whether it likened us to the sun and the moon - only permitted to meet once a year - or simply to a boy and a girl touched by the stars, fate had danced to bring us together. #Quote by Elizabeth Lim
Fate quotes by Michelle Alexander
#14. Black success stories lend credence to the notion that anyone, no matter how poor or how black you may be, can make it to the top, if only you try hard enough. These stories "prove" that race is no longer relevant. Whereas black success stories undermined the logic of Jim Crow, they actually reinforce the system of mass incarceration. Mass incarceration depends for its legitimacy on the widespread belief that all those who appear trapped at the bottom actually chose their fate. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Fate quotes by Beverley Kendall
#15. Fate had a most unfortunate sense of humor. #Quote by Beverley Kendall
Fate quotes by Stephen Beal
#16. On Becoming a Poet in the 1950s"

There was love and there was trees.
Either you could stay inside and probe your emotions
or you could go outside and keenly observe nature.
Describe the sheen on carapaces,
the effect of breeze on grass.

What's the fag doing now? Dad would say.
Picking the nose of his heart?
Wanking off on a daffodil?

He's not homosexual, Mom would retort, using her apron as a potholder to
remove the apple brown betty from the oven.
He's sensitive. He cares.
He wishes to impart values and standards to an indifferent world.

Wow! said Dad, stomping off to the pantry for another scotch. Two poets in
the family. Ain't I a lucky duck?

As fate would have it, I became one of your tweedy English teachers, what
Dad would call a daffodil-wanker,
and Mom ended up doing needlepoint, seventy-two kneelers for St. Fred's
before she expired of the heart broken on the afternoon that Dad
roared off with the Hell's Angels.
We heard a little from Big Sur. A beard. Tattoos. A girlfriend named Strawberry.
A boyfriend named Thor.
Bars and pot and coffeehouses, stuff like that.

After years of quotation by younger poets, admiration but no real notice,
Dad is making the anthologies now.
Critics cite his primal rage, the way he nails Winnetka. #Quote by Stephen Beal
Fate quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#17. Hope combined with action is the only thing that will bring you contentment. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Fate quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#18. But I would watch how black people moved, how in these clubs they danced as though their bodies could do anything, and their bodies seemed as free as Malcolm's voice. On the outside black people controlled nothing, least of all the fate of their bodies, which could be commandeered by the police; which could be erased by the guns, which were so profligate; which could be raped, beaten, jailed. But in the clubs, under the influence of two-for-one rum and Cokes, under the spell of low lights, in thrall of hip-hp music, I felt them to be in total control of every step, every nod, every pivot. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Fate quotes by Helen Thomas
#19. We've got to break through the wall of secrecy. It's America's fate. #Quote by Helen Thomas
Fate quotes by Hermann Hesse
#20. Haller belongs to those who have been caught between two ages, who are outside of all security and simple acquiescence. He belongs to those whose fate it is to live the whole riddle of human destiny heightened to the pitch of a personal torture, a personal hell. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Fate quotes by Yasmine Galenorn
#21. Don't dwell on what may be. Apply yourself to the task at hand. The Hags of Fate may predict the future, but there is always free will, and that is your saving grace, my dear. #Quote by Yasmine Galenorn
Fate quotes by Robert J. Wolfe
#22. He knew about alcohol, nothing about this. He could drink and he could stop. Others couldn't and drank themselves dead. Personal biochemistry. Fate. "I #Quote by Robert J. Wolfe
Fate quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#23. All of this passes, and none of it means anything to me.
It's all foreign to my fate, and even to fate as a whole. It's
just unconsciousness, curses of protest when chance hurls
stones, echoes of unknown voices – a collective
mishmash of life. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Fate quotes by Candice Millard
#24. Garfield's shooting had also revealed to the American people how vulnerable they were. In the little more than a century since its inception, the United States had become a powerful and respected country. Yet Americans suddenly realized that they still had no real control over their own fate. Not only could they not prevent a tragedy of such magnitude, they couldn't even anticipate it. The course of their lives could be changed in an instant, by a man who did not even understand what he had done. #Quote by Candice Millard
Fate quotes by Charles Dickens
#25. All the air round was so thick and dark, the people were so passionately revengeful and fitful, the innocent were so constantly put to death on vague suspicion and black malice, it was so impossible to forget that many as blameless as her husband and as dear to others as he was to her, every day shared the fate from which he had been clutched, that her heart could not be as lightened of its load as she felt it ought to be. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Fate quotes by J.M. Darhower
#26. You can't go back and change things once they're done. You can't rewrite history. Dwelling on it, wondering what could've been different, wondering how things might be in a perfect world, is a waste of time. Because this world isn't perfect, life isn't perfect, and it never will be. #Quote by J.M. Darhower
Fate quotes by Kim A-joong
#27. In that endless time, we are born in the same age. In that infinite space, to be able to meet and become one with you, that fate is really amazing and the miracle is really beautiful. #Quote by Kim A-joong
Fate quotes by Romina Russell
#28. The truth is, our parents are but part of the equation that forms us―because the only thing more powerful than fate is free will. #Quote by Romina Russell
Fate quotes by James Herriot
#29. But cruel fate had not finished with us yet. My colleague's gasps and grunts from the rear ceased for a moment to be replaced by a horrified shriek. The bloody thing's shitting, Jim! She's shitting everywhere! #Quote by James Herriot
Fate quotes by Joan Didion
#30. 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. #Quote by Joan Didion
Fate quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#31. Be willing to walk with God. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Fate quotes by Katie McGarry
#32. We were nothing more than actions to reactions - helpless against our own fate. It's true. I react and others pay. #Quote by Katie McGarry
Fate quotes by Walter Scott
#33. "Lambe them, lads! lambe them!" a cant phrase of the time derived from the fate of Dr. Lambe, an astrologer and quack, who was knocked on the head by the rabble in Charles the First's time. #Quote by Walter Scott
Fate quotes by Amanda Stevens
#34. For those of us who can, there are certain precautions we must take in order to protect ourselves and those around us. The first and most important is this-never acknowledge the dead. Don't look at them, don't speak to them don't let them sense your fear. Even when they touch you" ... "The second thing you must remember is this," Papa said. "Never stray too far from hallowed ground." ... "Rule Number Three," he said. "Keep your distance from those who are haunted. If they seek you out, turn away from them, for they constitute a terrible threat and cannot be trusted." ... "Rule Number Four," he said sternly. "Never, ever tempt fate. #Quote by Amanda Stevens
Fate quotes by Karen Armstrong
#35. Everybody knew that Allah had created the world; that he quickened each human embryo in the womb; and that he was the giver of rain. But these remained abstract beliefs. Arabs would sometimes pray to Allah in an emergency, but once the danger had passed they forgot all about him.23 Indeed, Allah seemed like an irresponsible, absentee father; after he had brought men and women into being, he took no interest in them and abandoned them to their fate. #Quote by Karen Armstrong
Fate quotes by Adelle Waldman
#36. He would have denied it, even to himself -deemed it a laughable affectation- but it seemed to him now that he had always secretly believed that in the way he lived (he refused to say his "lifestyle"), in his freelance, un-health-insured, sparsely thinged life, he was in a small way registering a rejection-of conformity, of middle-class convention, of not just acquisitiveness but enslavement to the idol of "security." Nevertheless, he'd wound up in the same place as everyone else. Was this - latte liberalism - his inescapable fate? Surely it was. It was sheer vanity to pretend otherwise. #Quote by Adelle Waldman
Fate quotes by Marcus Sedgwick
#37. And if I really can see the future, then what does it mean? Is there any sense in our lives if everything is already out there, just waiting to happen? For if that were so, then life would be a horrible monster indeed, with no chance of escape from fate, from destiny. It would be like reading a book, but reading it backwards, from the final chapter down to chapter one, so that the end is already known to you. #Quote by Marcus Sedgwick
Fate quotes by Jennifer E. Smith
#38. This," I say softly, "is going to change everything."
I don't mean it the way I usually do.
I don't mean that change is hard or scary, though it's definitely both.
I mean only to say this: that sometimes, through good luck or bad, through curses or fate, the world cracks itself open, and afterward nothing will ever be the same.
All I mean is that this seems like one of those times. #Quote by Jennifer E. Smith
Fate quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#39. Life had stepped into the place of theory and something quite different would work itself out in his mind. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Fate quotes by Brooklyn Ann
#40. Lydia is enduring the same fate, I may remind you." Vincent remarked. "And she is doubtless freezing, being forced to stand there in only her chemise." A rakish smile spread across his features. "Perhaps we could go down and have a peek."
Rafe scowled. "I don't want you looking at my woman."
Vincent folded his arms and glared. "Well, I don't want you looking at my woman! #Quote by Brooklyn Ann
Fate quotes by Miles Franklin
#41. It came home to me as a great blow that it was only men who could take the world by its ears and conquer their fate, while women, metaphorically speaking, were forced to sit with tied hands and patiently suffer as the waves of fate tossed them hither and thither, battering and bruising without mercy. Familiarity made me used to this yoke; I recovered from the disappointment of being a girl, and was reconciled to that part of my fate. In fact, I found that being a girl was quite pleasant, until a hideous truth dawned upon me--I was ugly! ... In conjunction with this brand of hell I developed a reputation of cleverness. Worse and worse! Girls! girls! Those of you who have hearts, and therefore a wish for happiness, homes, and husbands by and by, never develop a reputation of being clever. It will put you out of the matrimonial running as effectually as though it had been circulated that you had leprosy. So, if you feel that you are afflicted with more than ordinary intelligence, and especially if you are plain with it, hide your brains, cramp your mind, study to appear unintellectual--it is your only chance. Provided a woman is beautiful, allowance will be made for all her shortcomings. She can be unchaste, vapid, untruthful, flippant, heartless, and even clever; so long as she is fair to see, men will stand by her, and as men in this world are "the dog on top," they are the power to truckle to. A plain woman will have nothing forgiven her. #Quote by Miles Franklin
Fate quotes by Bertrand Russell
#42. The more things a man is interested in, the more opportunities of happiness he has and the less he is at the mercy of fate, since if he loses one thing he can fall back upon another. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Fate quotes by Vasily Grossman
#43. He was telling her here, in this cellar, as he kissed her feet, he had understood love for the first time - not just from other people's words, but in his heart, in his blood. She was dearer to him than all his past, dearer to him than his mother, than Germany, than his future with Maria ... He had fallen in love with her. Great walls raised up by states, racist fury, the heavy artillery and its curtain of fire were all equally insignificant, equally powerless in the face of love.. He gave thanks to fate for allowing him to understand this before he died. #Quote by Vasily Grossman
Fate quotes by John Green
#44. Did I help you toward a fate you didn't want, Alaska, or did I just assist in your willful self-destruction? #Quote by John Green
Fate quotes by Agnes Repplier
#45. Wit is artificial; humor is natural. Wit is accidental; humor is inevitable. Wit is born of conscious effort; humor, of the allotted ironies of fate. Wit can be expressed only in language; humor can be developed sufficiently in situation. #Quote by Agnes Repplier
Fate quotes by Ellen Kaplan
#46. A Puritan twist in our nature makes us think that anything good for us must be twice as good if it's hard to swallow. Learning Greek and Latin used to play the role of character builder, since they were considered to be as exhausting and unrewarding as digging a trench in the morning and filling it up in the afternoon. It was what made a man, or a woman -- or more likely a robot -- of you. Now math serves that purpose in many schools: your task is to try to follow rules that make sense, perhaps, to some higher beings; and in the end to accept your failure with humbled pride. As you limp off with your aching mind and bruised soul, you know that nothing in later life will ever be as difficult.

What a perverse fate for one of our kind's greatest triumphs! Think how absurd it would be were music treated this way (for math and music are both excursions into sensuous structure): suffer through playing your scales, and when you're an adult you'll never have to listen to music again. And this is mathematics we're talking about, the language in which, Galileo said, the Book of the World is written. This is mathematics, which reaches down into our deepest intuitions and outward toward the nature of the universe -- mathematics, which explains the atoms as well as the stars in their courses, and lets us see into the ways that rivers and arteries branch. For mathematics itself is the study of connections: how things ideally must and, in fact, do sort together -- beyond, around, #Quote by Ellen Kaplan
Fate quotes by William Shakespeare
#47. I do I know not what, and fear to find
Mine eye too great a flatterer for my mind.
Fate, show thy force. Ourselves we do not owe.
What is decreed must be; and be this so. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Fate quotes by Julia P. Gelardi
#48. Queen Marie of Romania, who once wrote: 'We are hardly ever arbiters of our own Fate: We must move, do, live, according to our several duties and our
own desires and wishes have to be fitted in with what we can do more often than what we desire to do'. #Quote by Julia P. Gelardi
Fate quotes by Aeschylus
#49. My friends, whoever has had experience of evils knows how whenever a flood of ills comes upon mortals, a man fears everything; but whenever a divine force cheers on our voyage, then we believe that the same fate will always blow fair. #Quote by Aeschylus
Fate quotes by David G. McDaniel
#50. Fate is what you make it." - Jessica #Quote by David G. McDaniel
Fate quotes by Andra Brynn
#51. And suddenly I think: nothing is fine. It's never fine. It's always an illusion. Happy smiles, assurances, jokes, laughter - there's no way to tell if it is real, or a mask. There's always something terrible hurtling toward you, something that will destroy all that you love and alter your life forever. You may not know it, but it's coming and there's nothing you can do. No amount of hammering, or holy water, or screaming will change that.
You can scream no, and stop, and please, you can reach out and try to bend fate to your will with your own two hands, but it has already been decided. In every moment, a thousand accidents wait to happen, already in place and poised to strike, and we don't even know it #Quote by Andra Brynn
Fate quotes by Gayle Forman
#52. Tempt fate. See what happens. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Fate quotes by Amish Tripathi
#53. If you decide to challenge your destiny, your opponent would not be some judgemental Lord Almighty who is seeking to punish you; your opponent would only be the limitations of your own mind. This will empower you to fight your fate. #Quote by Amish Tripathi
Fate quotes by Kiran Desai
#54. The judge got down on his knees, and he prayed to God, he, Jemubhai Popatlal the agnostic, who had made a long hard journey to jettison his family's prayers; he who had refused to throw the coconut into the water and bless his own voyage all those years ago on the deck of the SS Strath-naver.
"If you return Mutt, I will acknowledge you in public, I will never deny you again, I will tell the world that I believe in you – you – if you return Mutt – "
Then he got up. He was undoing his education, retreating to the superstitious man making bargains, offering sacrifices, gambling with fate, cajoling, daring whatever was out there -
Show me if you exist!
Or else I will know you are nothing.
Nothing! Nothing! – taunting it. #Quote by Kiran Desai
Fate quotes by Mark Andrew Poe
#55. Our ability to choose is sacred. It's what makes humans special. #Quote by Mark Andrew Poe
Fate quotes by Cody W
#56. Don't ever say you are sorry for "being caught in the moment". Because, at that moment, that is EXACTLY where you wanted to be. #Quote by Cody W
Fate quotes by C. G. Jung
#57. Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. #Quote by C. G. Jung
Fate quotes by Joseph J. Romm
#58. On our current path, all our great Gulf and Atlantic coast cities are at risk of meeting the same fate as New Orleans. #Quote by Joseph J. Romm
Fate quotes by Alexander Pope
#59. Monuments, like men, submit to fate. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Fate quotes by Cornell Woolrich
#60. Well, this is the hardest part to believe; look, you can suspend me if you want to, but it's the God's honest truth. This man Tompkins came all the way down to where I was bending over the body at the foot of the stairs. I straightened up and covered him with my gun. It didn't faze him in the least, he kept moving right on past me toward the street-door. Not quickly, either; as slowly as if he was just going out for a walk. He said, 'It isn't my time yet. You can't do anything to me with that.' ("Speak To Me Of Death") #Quote by Cornell Woolrich
Fate quotes by Hjalmar Schacht
#61. Only the closest collaborators of the Fuehrer know how difficult is the burden of this responsibility; how sorrowful are the hours during which decisions must be made which bear upon the well being and the fate of all of Germany. #Quote by Hjalmar Schacht
Fate quotes by Anthony Giddens
#62. To live in the universe of high modernity is to live in an environment of chance and risk, the ineveitable concomitants of a system geared to the domination of nature and the reflexive making of history. Fate and destiny have no formal part to play in such a system, which operates (as a matter of principle) via what I shall call open human control of the natural and social worlds. #Quote by Anthony Giddens
Fate quotes by William Butler Yeats
#63. I weave the shoes of Sorrow:
Soundless shall be the footfall light
In all men's ears of Sorrow,
Sudden and light. #Quote by William Butler Yeats
Fate quotes by Linda Collins
#64. I would not mind going mad. It would absolve me of any need to go on coping, which is a particular kind of living hell. The simplicity of letting go, of shuffling about in a Valium- induced haze, is alluring. I lack the kind of ruthless ability that Victoria had to bring about a complete physical destruction of the entire human package. It is my fate to keep waking and find myself alive. #Quote by Linda Collins
Fate quotes by George MacDonald
#65. I must accept my fate! But how was life to be lived in a world of which I had all the laws to learn? There would, however, be adventure! that held consolation; and whether I found my way home or not, I should at least have the rare advantage of knowing two worlds! #Quote by George MacDonald
Fate quotes by Margaret Drabble
#66. Novels, since the birth of the genre, have been full of rejected, seduced, and abandoned maidens, whose proper fate is to die ... #Quote by Margaret Drabble
Fate quotes by Stefan Zweig
#67. The Battle of Waterloo is a work of art with tension and drama with its unceasing change from hope to fear and back again, changewhich suddenly dissolves into a moment of extreme catastrophe, a model tragedy because the fate of Europe was determined within this individual fate. #Quote by Stefan Zweig
Fate quotes by Susan Ee
#68. It seems to be our fate to continually pass our debt back and forth. #Quote by Susan Ee
Fate quotes by Confucius
#69. Death and life have their determined appointments; riches and honors depend upon heaven. #Quote by Confucius
Fate quotes by Albert Camus
#70. Despite men's suffering, despite the blood and wrath, despite the dead who can never be replaced, the unjust wounds, and the wild bullets, we must utter, not words of regret, but words of hope, of the dreadful hope of men isolated with their fate. #Quote by Albert Camus
Fate quotes by Rebecca Harris
#71. Possibility is not a facet of opportunity. It's one of fate. And I've never been one to fear destiny. #Quote by Rebecca Harris
Fate quotes by Cassandra Clare
#72. There is a coldness to the Clave, it is true. We are dust and shadows. But you are like the heroes of ancient times, like Achilles and Jason."
"Achilles was murdered with a poisoned
arrow, and Jason died alone, killed by his own rotting ship. Such is the fate of heroes; the Angel knows why anyone would want to be one. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Fate quotes by Virginia Alison
#73. Love is waiting, just around the corner, over the hill... #Quote by Virginia Alison
Fate quotes by Horst Koehler
#74. In my view, the humanity of our world can be measured against the fate of Africa. #Quote by Horst Koehler
Fate quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#75. Even very little things can change your destiny and throw you to a different path, to a different fate; you must never forget that even very little things have great powers! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Fate quotes by Caitlin Moran
#76. At school, I could see some of my contemporaries were choosing not to be active women - out there, making their own fate - but to be princesses, just waiting to be "found" and married, instead. #Quote by Caitlin Moran
Fate quotes by Liu Cixin
#77. And now we know that this is the journey that must be made by every civilization: awakening inside a cramped cradle, toddling out of it, taking flight, flying faster and farther, and, finally, merging with the fate of the universe as one. The ultimate fate of all intelligent beings has always been to become as grand as their thoughts. #Quote by Liu Cixin
Fate quotes by Sharon Tate
#78. My whole life has been decided by fate. I've never planned anything that's happened to me. #Quote by Sharon Tate
Fate quotes by David Clement-Davies
#79. On his brow a leaf of oaken, Cangeling child shall be his fate. Understanding words strange spoken, Chased by anger, fear, and hate. #Quote by David Clement-Davies
Fate quotes by Wally Lamb
#80. She suggested that...I should examine what I had been trying to shoot at and punch and kill for so long- whether or not I had, perhaps, denied some more gentle part of my nature, and if so, what had it cost me. "And don't get a tattoo for your forehead," she said, smiling. "It's entirely unnecessary." As proof, she held her hands in front of her. Wiggled her fingers and smiled. Our being human made us tragic and comic both, she has said; the gods both laughed and wept. #Quote by Wally Lamb
Fate quotes by Nora Roberts
#81. To fate and the strange way that it twists us all together. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Fate quotes by Tasmiya
#82. if u know that right person, hug them tight and don't let them go, let your arrogance fade in their shade, because they will make such miraculous changes,not just to your life but to your fate too! #Quote by Tasmiya
Fate quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#83. Fate is the malevolent little jester sitting up in the heavens and pondering over how ridiculous we humans are and he does his best to make fools out of all of us. And sooner or later he succeeds. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Fate quotes by Moira Katson
#84. You, Catwin, no longer exist. You no longer have a fate of your own, a will of your own, or indeed a soul of your own. Henceforth, you and Miriel are to be as one, she the light, and you the shadow. You are to cease thinking of yourself as other from my niece - you are to be her shadow, as Temar is mine. You will go where she goes, you will watch instead of being watched, you will hear instead of being heard. Do you understand me? - Eral Celys, Duke of Voltur #Quote by Moira Katson
Fate quotes by James P. Carse
#85. There is no narrative without structure, or plot. In a great story this structure seems like fate, like an inescapable judgment descending on its still unaware heroes, a great metaphysical causality, that crowds out all room for choice. Fate arises not as a limitation on our freedom, but as a manifestation of our freedom, testimony that choice is consequent. The exercise of your freedom cannot prevent the exercise of my own freedom, but it can determine the context in which I am to act freely. You cannot make choices for me, but you can largely determine what my choices will be about. Great stories explore the drama of this deeper touching of one free person by another. They are therefore genuinely sexual dramas astounding us once more with the magic of origins. #Quote by James P. Carse
Fate quotes by Donna Augustine
#86. Fate threw his hands up as I passed the ice cream stand. "Where are you going?"
"My condo."
"I still want ice cream."
"You still want ice cream?"
"Yes. #Quote by Donna Augustine
Fate quotes by David McRaney
#87. Any extended period of negative emotions can lead to you giving in to despair and accepting your fate. If you remain alone for a long time, you will decide loneliness is a fact of life and pass up opportunities to hang out with people. The loss of control in any situation can lead to this state. #Quote by David McRaney
Fate quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#88. I was an only, and often lonely, child. After they'd had me, my parents, who'd met back in Pakistan when they were both around forty, had decided against tempting fate a second time. I remember how I would eye with envy all the kids in our neighborhood, in my school, who had a little brother or sister. How bewildered I was by the way some of them treated each other, oblivious to their own good luck. They acted like wild dogs. Pinching, hitting, pushing, betraying one another any way they could think of. Laughing about it too. They wouldn't speak to one another. I didn't understand. Me, I spent most of my early years craving a sibling. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Fate quotes by Alfred North Whitehead
#89. The importance of an individual thinker owes something to chance. For it depends upon the fate of his ideas in the minds of his successors. #Quote by Alfred North Whitehead
Fate quotes by Carl Jung
#90. So often among so-called "primitives" one comes across spiritual personalities who immediately inspire respect, as though they were the fully matured products of an undisturbed fate. #Quote by Carl Jung
Fate quotes by Katherine Marsh
#91. It is possible to reclaim your future, to build a happy life despite an imperfect past. We can order the universe to our will and mind. #Quote by Katherine Marsh
Fate quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#92. We achieve everything by our efforts alone. Our fate is not decided by an almighty God. We decide our own fate by our actions. You have to gain mystery over yourself. It is not a matter of sitting back and accepting. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
Fate quotes by Sylvia Plath
#93. your fate involves a dark assailant #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Fate quotes by Euripides
#94. AGAMEMNON: Oh immovable law of heaven! Oh my anguish, my relentless fate!

CLYTEMNESTRA: Yours? Mine. Hers. No relenting for any of us. #Quote by Euripides
Fate quotes by Jodi Ellen Malpas
#95. Do you believe in fate, Ava? #Quote by Jodi Ellen Malpas
Fate quotes by Christopher Paolini
#96. If you could have stopped it, or if you could have escaped but you didn't, then you would have lost my respect. But you did everything you could, and when you could do no more, you made peace with your fate, and you didn't rail needlessly against it. That is wisdom, not weakness. #Quote by Christopher Paolini
Fate quotes by John Adams
#97. I will insist the Hebrews have [contributed] more to civilize men than any other nation. If I was an atheist and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations ... They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their empire were but a bubble in comparison to the Jews. They have given religion to three-quarters of the globe and have influenced the affairs of mankind more and more happily than any other nation, ancient or modern. #Quote by John Adams
Fate quotes by Plutarch
#98. Fate leads him who follows it, and drags him who resist. #Quote by Plutarch
Fate quotes by Mandy Hale
#99. So many people bump into our lives for a second and it changes us forever, but they never know it. And while that's funny and strange and a little sad, it's also just life. And the truth of the matter is, it was never really about them anyway. It was always about us and what we were meant to learn from them. It was always about us and who we were meant to BECOME as a result of having encountered them. #Quote by Mandy Hale
Fate quotes by Elif Shafak
#100. Plutarch was right after all. Fate did lead those who were willing to be led, and those who resisted the idea, like himself, were dragged forcefully instead. #Quote by Elif Shafak
Fate quotes by William Samuel Johnson
#101. It seems to be the fate of man to seek all his consolations in futurity. #Quote by William Samuel Johnson
Fate quotes by Chandana Roy
#102. She cannot escape marriage; it is her sacred Hindu duty, just as giving her away in marriage was her father's sacred Hindu duty. Like Indian Independence, marriage is her ultimate 'Tryst with Destiny,' and it is not in her hand to escape her preordained and compulsory fate. A marriageable daughter is the lowest common denominator in the giant scheme of things. #Quote by Chandana Roy

Fate quotes by Robert Frost
#105. I'd like to get away from earth awhile
And then come back to it and begin over.
May no fate wilfully misunderstand me
And half grant what I wish and snatch me away
Not to return. Earth's the right place for love:
I don't know where it's likely to go better. #Quote by Robert Frost
Fate quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#106. I hate fate. I don't believe in her. Unfortunately, I think the bitch believes in me. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Fate quotes by Abraham H. Maslow
#107. The needs for safety, belonging, love relations and for respect can be satisfied only by other people, i.e., only from outside the person. This means considerable dependence on the environment. A person in this dependent position cannot really be said to be governing himself, or in control of his own fate. He must be beholden to the sources of supply of needed gratifications. Their wishes, their whims, their rules and laws govern him and must be appeased lest he jeopardize his sources of supply. He must be, to an extent, "other-directed," and must be sensitive to other people's approval, affection and good will. This is the same as saying that he must adapt and adjust by being flexible and responsive and by changing himself to fit the external situation. He is the dependent variable; the environment is the fixed, independent variable. #Quote by Abraham H. Maslow
Fate quotes by Harold Lamb
#108. What is fate but the whine of the low-born? #Quote by Harold Lamb
Fate quotes by Stephanie Kuehn
#109. But maybe he'd always known. Maybe the cool winds of fate and the flag-snap flutter of destiny had always been there, tickling his spine, whispering in his ear it's gonna catch up with you boy one of these days the truth'll come back so you'd better go go go, until finally, Emerson couldn't help but listen. There was only so much ruin the mind could rationalize. There was only so much badness that could be suppressed for so long. His guilt, on its own, was utterly meaningless - just a showy type of magic that changed nothing because changing nothing was the endgame all along. Words like absolution and forgiveness and redemption would never apply to someone like him. Those terms were just abstractions. Names for what other people called the moments between darkness. #Quote by Stephanie Kuehn
Fate quotes by Demetri Martin
#110. I have never been in a bad mood and near a beach ball at the same time. Causation? Correlation? Or fate? #Quote by Demetri Martin
Fate quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#111. Love makes men foolish. I speak as a victim myself. We are taken out of our own care and then it remains to be seen only if fate will show to us some share of mercy. Or little. Or none. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy

Fate quotes by Robert Greene

Fate quotes by Mel Bosworth
#114. I don't believe in fate, though, because fate isn't as much fun as freewill. But I do believe that everything is exactly as it should be. #Quote by Mel Bosworth
Fate quotes by John Burroughs

Fate quotes by Judith McNaught
#116. You can't outwit fate by standing on the sidelines placing little sidebets about the outcome of life. either you wade in and risk everything you have to play the game or you don't play at all. and if u don't play u can't win. #Quote by Judith McNaught

Fate quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#119. Every wild apple shrub excites our expectation thus, somewhat as every wild child. It is, perhaps, a prince in disguise. What a lesson to man! So are human beings, referred to the highest standard, the celestial fruit which they suggest and aspire to bear, browsed on by fate; and only the most persistent and strongest genius defends itself and prevails, sends a tender scion upward at last, and drops its perfect fruit on the ungrateful earth. Poets and philosophers and statesmen thus spring up in the country pastures, and outlast the hosts of unoriginal men. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Fate quotes by Seneca
#120. Why do we complain of Nature? She has shown herself kindly; life, if you know how to use it, is long. But one man is possessed by an avarice that is insatiable, another by a toilsome devotion to tasks that are useless; one man is besotted with wine, another is paralyzed by sloth; one man is exhausted by an ambition that always hangs upon the decision of others, another, driven on by the greed of the trader, is led over all lands and all seas by the hope of gain; some are tormented by a passion for war and are always either bent upon inflicting danger upon others or concerned about their own; some there are who are worn out by voluntary servitude in a thankless attendance upon the great; many are kept busy either in the pursuit of other men's fortune or in complaining of their own; many, following no fixed aim, shifting and inconstant and dissatisfied, are plunged by their fickleness into plans that are ever new; some have no fixed principle by which to direct their course, but Fate takes them unawares while they loll and yawn - so surely does it happen that I cannot doubt the truth of that utterance which the greatest of poets delivered with all the seeming of an oracle: "The part of life we really live is small."5 For all the rest of existence is not life, but merely time. Vices beset us and surround us on every side, and they do not permit us to rise anew and lift up our eyes for the discernment of truth, but they keep us down when once they have overwhelmed us and we are c #Quote by Seneca
Fate quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#121. I am responsible for my fate, I am the bringer of good unto myself, I am the bringer of evil. I am the Pure and Blessed One. We must reject all thoughts that assert to the contrary. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Fate quotes by William Faulkner
#122. Then that had passed. It was 1923 and I wrote a book and discovered that my doom, fate, was to keep on writing books: not for any exterior or ulterior purpose: just writing the books for the sake of writing the books; #Quote by William Faulkner
Fate quotes by John Bradshaw
#123. High school is the time of puberty. And puberty is a time of intense exposure and vulnerability. Whatever toxic shame a person carries from childhood will be tested in high school. Often teenage groups look for a scapegoat, someone everyone can dump and project their shame onto. This was Arnold's fate. He was viciously shamed by his female peer group. This accounted for his problem with women. #Quote by John Bradshaw
Fate quotes by Sarah Snook
#124. I think some things are just meant to happen; you can't change your fate. Maybe we have a small amount of control. #Quote by Sarah Snook
Fate quotes by Andrzej Stasiuk
#125. It gives me no rest, my wish to know the fate of all these scenes that entered my eyes and have remained in my thoughts. What happens to them when I am no longer there? #Quote by Andrzej Stasiuk
Fate quotes by Will Durant
#126. We are tossed about by external causes in many ways, and like waves driven by contrary winds, we waver and are unconscious of the issue and our fate.' We think we are most ourselves when we are most passionate, whereas it is then we are most passive, caught in some ancestral torrent of impulse or feeling, and swept on to a precipitate reaction which meets only part of the situation because without thought only part of a situation can be perceived. #Quote by Will Durant
Fate quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#127. Physically he was tired and his body relaxed throughout its entire length; his mind was in much the same state, floating free, detached, as though he had taken his old favourite, the tincture of laudanum. He felt no particular anxiety. The attempt must either succeed or fail: he hoped with all his heart for success, but 'all his heart' did not amount to a great deal now that some essential part of its core seemed to have died. Yet on the other hand he felt more able to command success in that it meant no less to him - to command it with a strength that arose not from a fundamental indifference to his own fate but from something resembling it that he could not define; it had a resemblance to despair, but a despair long past, with the horror taken out of it. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Fate quotes by Jorge G. Castaneda
#128. When fate and love come into conflict, the former must always win; for love will fade if it rests upon indignity or abdication. #Quote by Jorge G. Castaneda
Fate quotes by Jalaluddin Rumi
#129. Wedding Night

The day I've died, my pall is moving on -
But do not think my heart is still on earth!
Don't weep and pity me: "Oh woe, how awful!"
You fall in devil's snare - woe, that is awful!
Don't cry "Woe, parted!" at my burial -
For me this is the time of joyful meeting!
Don't say "Farewell!" when I'm put in the grave -
A curtin is it for eternal bliss.
You saw "descending" - now look at the rising!
Is setting dangerous for sun and moon?
To you it looks like setting, but it's rising;
The coffin seems a jail, yet it means freedom.
Which seed fell in the earth that did not grow there?
Why do you doubt the fate of human seed?
What bucket came not filled from out the cistern?
Why should the Yusaf "Soul" then fear this well?
Close here your mouth and open it on that side.
So that your hymns may sound in Where-no-place #Quote by Jalaluddin Rumi
Fate quotes by Nikki Rowe

Fate quotes by Lynn Johnson
#132. I guess life is like a novel. Some of it is written by fate, some of it is written by God... but the part we are ultimately judged by is the part we write ourselves. #Quote by Lynn Johnson
Fate quotes by Matthew Pearl
#133. An obscure character by the name of Belial. He is interpreted as a minion of the devil by some scholars, but that is wrong. It is ignorance. The name means, literally speaking, 'one who cannot be yoked,' and it is really every one of us who takes control of our own destiny while others blow in the wind. We may be punished for it, but we would never do it another way. We are all Belials. #Quote by Matthew Pearl
Fate quotes by Angeles Mastretta
#134. Without a doubt. I believe in fate the same way others believe in God. I do believe in fate. #Quote by Angeles Mastretta
Fate quotes by Michelle Heard
#135. I am.

My eyes are filled with stars,
my feet planted firmly on the ground.
My fingertips are in the pond of destiny
making ripples through life.

I've been to hell and back,
holding the scales of truth.

I'm your conscience,
and every haunting memory.

I've seen the cruelty of love.
I've bathed in the acid of deceit.
I've felt the coldness of death.

I've seen it all.
I'm chaos.
I'm revenge.
I am Fate. #Quote by Michelle Heard

Fate quotes by Jose Saramago
#139. The chronicler would abandon any idea of making a detailed report of all the other ills that are afflicting most of the nearly three hundred inmates being kept in this inhumane quarantine, but he could not fail to mention at least two cases of fairly advanced cancer, for the authorities had no humanitarian scruples when rounded up the blind and confining them here, they even stated that the laws once made is the same for everyone and that democracy is incompatible with preferential treatment. As cruel fate would have it, amongst all these inmates there is only one doctor, and an ophthalmologist at that, the last thing we need. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Fate quotes by William Faulkner
#140. I can't do nothing. Just put it off. And that don't do no good. I reckon it belong to me. I reckon what I going to get ain't no more than mine. #Quote by William Faulkner

Fate quotes by Cynthia Leitich Smith

Fate quotes by James Baldwin
#144. Every effort made by the child's elders to prepare him for a fate from which they cannot protect him causes him secretly, in terror, to begin to await, without knowing that he is doing so, his mysterious and inexorable punishment. He must be "good" not only in order to please his parents and not only to avoid being punished by them; behind their authority stands another, nameless and impersonal, infinitely harder to please, and bottomlessly cruel. #Quote by James Baldwin
Fate quotes by Franz Wright

Fate quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#148. The people of Hispaniola had their lives unjustly and savagely taken by professed Jesus followers, and they were not, as we all know, the only ones to meet such a fate. Millions of their Indigenous sisters and brothers on Turtle Island were killed at the hands of other Europeans, as nation after imperial nation, bearing Christ on their lips and crosses on their military standards, followed suit.21 #Quote by Brian D. McLaren
Fate quotes by Naomi Klein
#149. So we are left with a stark choice: allow climate disruption to change everything about our world, or change pretty much everything about our economy to avoid that fate. But we need to be very clear: because of our decades of collective denial, no gradual, incremental options are now available to us. #Quote by Naomi Klein
Fate quotes by Karen Rose

Fate quotes by Paulo Coelho
#152. What's the world's greatest lie? ... It's this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Fate quotes by Sharon Shinn
#153. She told me that Melisande had borne a daughter, and that one day . . . one day she would like for us to meet. And so when your father advertised the fact that he was looking for a husband for his daughter - "
"Advertised," she interrupted.
"Oh, yes. Far and wide. Princess. Beautiful. Nubile. Available to big strong man, with even bigger sword." Mickel thumped his chest. "I was intrigued. I was mortified. I thought I would save the daughter of my mother's best friend from a fate worse than death."
"And if I had been a loud mouthed harridan with a taste for garlic and a fear of bathing?"
"I would have been the Warlord everyone thinks I am, tossed her aside like a sack of potatoes in a white wedding dress, and asked for the hand of a peculiar redheaded woman I met on the road."
Sally smiled. "And if she said no?" "Well," Mickel said, kissing her hand. "I may not be the Warlord of the Savage Belly Ache, but I am exceptionally brave. I would fight for her. #Quote by Sharon Shinn

Fate quotes by Uzo Aduba
#156. My mother is a fighter. After she battled polio and learned to walk again, the doctors told her she would be a cripple her entire life. Instead of accepting defeat, she refused this fate and went on to become the West African Women's Singles tennis champion in college. #Quote by Uzo Aduba
Fate quotes by Robert Greene
#157. Some 2,600 years ago the ancient Greek poet Pindar wrote, "Become who you are by learning who you are." What he meant is the following: You are born with a particular makeup and tendencies that mark you as a piece of fate. It is who you are to the core. Some people never become who they are; they stop trusting in themselves; they conform to the tastes of others, and they end up wearing a mask that hides their true nature. If you allow yourself to learn who you really are by paying attention to that voice and force within you, then you can become what you were fated to become - an individual, a Master. #Quote by Robert Greene
Fate quotes by Joseph Addison

Fate quotes by Amanda Scott
#159. Prithee, sir," Ian said, controlling his impatience, "tell us what Dougal said."
"He said he'd tell the world that he's had his way with our Lina, even shared her with his men. Och, but I wanted to hang him from the tree outside me gate right then! In short, if Dougal canna have her, he'll murder her reputation. So, in my fury, I've condemned my daughter to the sad future of an unmarried, unwanted woman. A future in which others will revile her, if Dougal has his say. Och, I'm a villain m'self to do such a vile thing. Mayhap I should think more on it, unless . . ."
He looked at Rob, who stared silently, blankly back at him.
After a glance at Ian, Andrew chose a point midway between the two men and said with a slight, self-deprecating shrug, "I dinna suppose ye'd . . . either o' ye . . . be willing to marry the poor lassie and save her from such a dreadful fate."
Ian saw the pit yawning before him, but he barely heeded it. Having saved Lina from one wretched fate, he did not want to watch her fall victim to another.
Impulsively, he said, "I . . . I'd be willing to give the idea some thought, sir."
"Good lad," Andrew said cheerfully. "I'll let ye have her. #Quote by Amanda Scott

Fate quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#164. General propositions – universal laws governing human thinking and human existence – leave room for many individualistic permutations. How shall I survive the specter of tomorrow, what is my life plan, and how will I come to terms with the finite lives of all humankind? How do I heal seeping internal wounds that lacerations weaken personal resolve? A person whom avoids seeking fame and fortune and engages in contemplative thought will enjoy a heightened state of existence. My survival hinges upon shedding the shackles of modern time's economic rigors; seeking penance through heartfelt contrition; accepting a vision quest devoid of wanting; rejoicing in my budding curiosity; loving nature; giving breath to living without fear and apprehension; and eliminating any form of want or angst from my cerebral being. Unshackling myself from the burdens of the past – guilt, remorse, anger, and petty resentments – is part of the healing process. The other part of a rehabilitation prescription is declaring free rein to live in the present one moment at a time. After all, humankind is the only member of the animal kingdom that walks this earth with the foreknowledge of its ultimate demise, but why would any person allow information pertaining to our personal fate ruin a perfectly good walk in nature's woodlands with our fellow creatures? #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster

Fate quotes by William Makepeace Thackeray
#166. It is quite edifying to hear women speculate upon the worthlessness and the duration of beauty. But though virtue is a much finer thing, and those hapless creatures who suffer under the misfortune of good looks ought to be continually put in mind of the fate which awaits them; and though, very likely, the heroic female character which ladies admire is a more glorious and beautiful object than the kind, fresh, smiling, artless, tender little domestic goddess, whom men are inclined to worship - yet the latter and inferior sort of women must have this consolation - that the men do admire them after all; and that, in spite of all our kind friends' warnings and protests, we go on in our desperate error and folly, #Quote by William Makepeace Thackeray
Fate quotes by Novalis
#167. It is the most capricious prejudice to believe that a human being is denied the capacity to be outside himself, to be consciously beyond the senses. He is capable at any moment of being a suprasensual being. Without this he would not be a citizen of the world - he would be an animal. It is true that under these circumstances reflection, the discovery of oneself - is very difficult, since they are so ceaselessly, so necessarily connected with the change in our other circumstances. But the more conscious of these circumstances we can be, the more lively, powerful, and ample is the conviction which derives from them - the belief in true revelations of the spirit. It is not seeing - hearing - feeling - it is a combination of all three - more than all three - a sensation of immediate certainty - a view of my truest, most actual life - thoughts change into laws - wishes are fulfilled. For the weak person the fact of this moment is an article of faith.

The phenomenon becomes especially striking at the sight of many human forms and faces - particularly so on catching sight of many eyes, expressions, movements - on hearing certain words, reading certain passages - at certain views of life, world, and fate. Very many chance incidents, many natural events, particular times of the day and year bring us such experiences. Certain moods are especially favorable to such revelations. Most last only an instant - few linger - fewest of all remain. In this respect there are great diff #Quote by Novalis

Fate quotes by Bel Arnesto
#171. The person who will make you feel different, who will tell you about your imperfections, who will show you and will let you experience the things you've thought that only exist in your dreams, can be happiness and or sadness.
Yes they are real, the person that you have love for a long time in your mind is living here on earth he/she might come and enter your life anytime and at any place.
What matters is treasure him/her/them and let them be part of your breathtaking life. #Quote by Bel Arnesto
Fate quotes by Nicola Barker

Fate quotes by Nikita Gill
#173. If you do not consider yourself

Fate quotes by Kerri Maniscalco
#181. It was a nice story, but most fairy tales had a dark side to them, especially when it came to a princess's fate. "A footman or maid?"

"I - I don't believe anyone else is missing," Lady Crenshaw said. "But Elizabeth wouldn't… she's such a good girl. She probably didn't wish to ruin our trip. It's not as if she's a lower-class trollop."

I chomped down on my immediate response, face burning. If she were a he, I doubted they'd call her such names. And her station had nothing to do with the matter whatsoever. Plenty of less fortunate families had more class than Lady Crenshaw had just showed. #Quote by Kerri Maniscalco
Fate quotes by Ross Turner
#182. And yet the night was still fresh: young as new dawn.
There was still time for worlds to change, if that was to be their fate. #Quote by Ross Turner
Fate quotes by Jerome A. Miller
#183. This is why there is something awful about human freedom. This power to make a choice which will never cease to reverberate. #Quote by Jerome A. Miller
Fate quotes by Roshani Chokshi
#184. The stars, filled with cold light and secrets, held no emotion in their fixed language of fate. Emotion belonged to life, a thing the stars could never experience. I, not the starlight, shaped my decisions. And it was me, not the evening sky, who shouldered the responsibility for decisions gone wrong. My horoscope had already come to pass, leaving nothing before me but a future ripe with the unknown. The stars had already told me everything they knew. And even though it left me untethered from any cosmic map I had once known… I felt freed. (p. 218). #Quote by Roshani Chokshi
Fate quotes by Banana Yoshimoto
#185. Fate is a ladder on which you cannot afford to miss a single rung. To skip out on even one step would mean you'll never make it to the top. #Quote by Banana Yoshimoto
Fate quotes by Anonymous
#186. In the lingering moments before you die your body releases DMT. The same drug that makes you dream. The same drug found in every living animal. It's not an evolutionary trick to make you survive. Your body is choosing to release this drug now because it believes your fate is too grim for you to comprehend. So you dream. You dream that everything will be fine. You dream that nothing happened at all. It's in this moment that your body sits across from you. It tells you 'looks like we're not gonna make it this time.' You sit around a fire and recollect the past before soon parting ways back to the atomic ether. Your body does this because it loves you. You have never met anyone like your body. Your body has been with you everyday, good and bad. It's even kept a journal of your life carved in scars. Your eyelashes always wiped the tears from your eyes. #Quote by Anonymous
Fate quotes by Bell Hooks
#187. Part of the racialized sexism wants everyone to think that a 15-year old Mexican is not a girl, she's a woman. We know she's a girl. We can never emphasize this enough, because this is the fate of colored girls globally right now: the denial of their girlhood, the denial of their childhood, and the constant state of risk and danger they are living in. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Fate quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#188. Hide from fate all you like," Baba Yellowlegs said as they turned away. "But it shall soon find you! #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Fate quotes by Edith Wharton
#189. But how could she trust herself to keep her footing? She knew the strength of the opposing impulses-she could feel the countless hands of habit dragging her back into some fresh compromise with fate. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Fate quotes by Roger McGough
#190. I could never begin a poem: 'When I am dead' In case it tempted Fate, and Fate gave way. #Quote by Roger McGough
Fate quotes by Giorge Leedy
#191. THE VOICE

I know you can't see me,
But you are a part of me.
Like that finger on your hand,
Only bigger.

Through you and with you,
I am living and growing,
Learning,
Expanding,
And having fun.

If you think you're alone,
You're wrong.
I'm here in your eyes reading this with you.
I'm there,
Sitting in your seat with you,
Experiencing your surroundings.

You're not alone.
I'm not alone.
Together we are one,
Yet we're separate and complete in ourselves.

With me,
We will continue to live together,
Apart,
And united.

When you need something,
I need it.
When you fear something,
I'll fear it.
When you dream of something,
I'll dream it.
When you make something,
I'll make it.

Because I'm connected to everything else there is,
I can orchestrate great things for you without your knowledge.
You call this coincidence or fate when you see it.
It is neither.
It is simply me making things as you and I want them to be.

You think the future is already determined.
It is not.
It is how ever you and I make it.
If it were already determined-
I would be like a tape recorder,
A hologram.
I assure you I am neither.

I am as real as the oxygen you're breathing.
You don't have to believe me.
I'll still be here.
You don't #Quote by Giorge Leedy
Fate quotes by Peter Capaldi
#192. What annoys me about it is that your fate is always in somebody else's hands. It's always up to somebody else to decide whether or not they want you in their show and so the majority of actors have to play out a waiting game. The constant fear is that it could all end tomorrow. #Quote by Peter Capaldi
Fate quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#193. 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. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Fate quotes by John Steinbeck
#194. No one doubts your courage, but you are a headstrong knight and when you choose a way you cannot change your course even if it lead to your destruction. That is your fault and your destiny. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Fate quotes by Alexander Chee
#195. And I would tell him, as we rise into the air, The curse is not that we cannot choose our Fates.
The curse, the curse we all live under, is that we can. #Quote by Alexander Chee
Fate quotes by Regina Maria Roche
#196. Lady Dunreath, in the meantime, suffered torture; after she had seen Malvina turned from the abbey, she returned to her apartment; it was furnished with the most luxurious elegance, yet she could not rest within it. Conscience already told her, if Malvina died, she must consider herself her murderer: her pale and woe-worn image seemed still before her: a cold terror oppressed her heart, which the terrors of the night augmented. The tempest shook the battlements of the abbey; and the wind howled through the galleries, like the moan of some wandering spirit of the pile, bewailing the fate of one of its fairest daughters. #Quote by Regina Maria Roche
Fate quotes by Heather Rose Jones
#197. Barbara took her accustomed place by the door but as the singing began Margerit beckoned her over to her side. "I haven't been following much except that it's all ancient Greeks and battles and such. What's happening now?"
Barbara knelt beside her and leaned close to whisper so as not to disturb the rest of the party. A brief synopsis of what had gone before took up the time while the chorus escorted the principles to the centre of the stage. "I haven't seen this performance before," Barbara added, "but I imagine this will be the grand love duet." As the soprano began, she concentrated on the stage to follow the opening phrases. The chorus had abandoned the field to the principles who faced each other against a backdrop of fluted columns.
"O! What strange fate is mine!" Barbara paused as the signature line was repeated several times. "I loved you in the guise of Mars, but now I am betrayed by Venus. The iron in your glance turns soft beneath my touch. I am undone. O Venus, you are cruel to mock me so." It continued on in the same vein until it was the mezzo's turn. Her lyrics ran much parallel with the soprano's. With less concentration required, Barbara ventured a glance to see Margerit's reaction. Margerit turned at the same moment and their eyes met as Barbara whispered Ifis's lines.
"O! What a strange fate is mine! In the guise of Mars I love you but now as Venus I'm betrayed. The Iron in my soul turns soft beneath your touch." Unconsciously, Margerit pl #Quote by Heather Rose Jones

#198. A man's fate is a man's fate and life is but an illusion. #Quote by James Clavell
Fate quotes by Lewis Carroll
#199. We can but stand aside, and let them Rush upon their Fate! There is scarcely anything of yours, upon which it is so dangerous to Rush, as your Fate. You may Rush upon your Potato-beds, or your Strawberry-beds, without doing much harm: you may even Rush upon your Balcony (unless it is a new house, built by contract, and with no clerk of the works) and may survive the foolhardy enterprise: but if you once Rush upon your FATE
why, you must take the consequences! #Quote by Lewis Carroll
