It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.William Shakespeare
The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
William Jennings Bryan
If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading
Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny.
There are winds of destiny that blow when we least expect them. Sometimes they gust with the fury of a hurricane, sometimes they barely fan one’s cheek. But the winds cannot be denied, bringing as they often do a future that is impossible to ignore.
Life is not like water. Things in life don't necessarily flow over the shortest possible route.
All the world's a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed.
Nothing happens without a reason.
Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself. If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.
Even if things don't unfold the way you expected, don't be disheartened or give up. One who continues to advance will win in the end.
There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be...
Do you ever wonder why things have to turn out the way they do?
Nicholas Sparks, A Walk to Remember
Destiny is usually just around the corner. Like a thief, a hooker, or a lottery vendor: its three most common personifications. But what destiny does not do is home visits. You have to go for it.
Carlos Ruiz Zafón
Sometimes the dreams that come true are the dreams you never even knew you had.
I am the sum total of everything that went before me, of all I have been seen done, of everything done-to-me. I am everyone everything whose being-in-the-world affected was affected by mine. I am anything that happens after I'm gone which would not have happened if I had not come.
Does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker?
We are all of us born with a letter inside us, and that only if we are true to ourselves, may we be allowed to read it before we die.
There are no wrong turnings. Only paths we had not known we were meant to walk.
Guy Gavriel Kay
A man does not make his destiny: he accepts it or denies it.
Ursula K. Le Guin
Whatever is going to happen will happen, whether we worry or not.
Don't confuse poor decision-making with destiny. Own your mistakes. It’s ok; we all make them. Learn from them so they can empower you!
Every passion has its destiny.
That which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our own destiny. Be it through intention or ignorance, our successes and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves.
I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.
You may not end up where you though you'd be, but you'll end up right where you're meant to be.
Destiny is a name often given in retrospect to choices that had dramatic consequences.
You often meet your fate on the road you take to avoid it.
When all the details fit in perfectly, something is probably wrong with the story.
You can’t go back, Ever. You can’t change the past. It just is. . . . This is our destiny. Not yours.
You speak of destiny as if it was fixed.
The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance. The wise grows it under his feet.
You are the creator of your destiny.
