Pondering Our Destiny

For rarely man escapes his destiny.
~Ludovico Ariosto~

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~

There are certain events which to each man's life are as comets to the earth, seemingly strange and erratic portents; distinct from the ordinary lights which guide our course and mark our seasons, yet true to their own laws, potent in their own influences.
~Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton~

Thoughts lead on to purpose, purpose leads on to actions, actions form habits, habits decide character, and character fixes our destiny.
~Tryon Edwards~

Do not seek to have events happen as you want them to, but instead want them to happen as they do happen, and your life will go well.
~Epictetus~

No trumpets sound when the important decisions of our life are made. Destiny is made known silently.
~Proverb~

Be what nature intended you for, and you will succeed; be anything else and you will be ten thousand times worse than nothing.
~Sydney Smith~
