Fate & Destiny


Life is not a situation, but a process; not static, by dynamic. Itís essential element is change, and the great question facing each of us is whether we will channel that change in the directions we want to go, shaping our destiny, or whether we will permit our activities and our character to be determined by those random forces we call fate. To the extent that we procrastinate, we are following the second course.

Thoughts lead on to purposes; purposes go forth in action; actions form habits; habits decide character; and character fixes our destiny.

                        -- Amy Tan



If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.

It is good to have an end to journey towards;

No trumpets sound when the important decisions of our life are made.

Destiny is made known silently.

                        -- Agnes DeMille



You were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within you. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as you let your own light shine, you unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As you are liberated from your own fear, your presence automatically liberates others.

                                    -- Nelson Mandela



Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice.
