Inspirational Quotes  |  


When it comes to fate, you have to realize that it is different than destiny. Destiny is where things are predetermined and it doesn’t matter what you do in life, because you will never be able to change your ending, however, fate is what you will need to think about when it comes to your choices. When it comes to choices you will need to consider that you have some type of say in your fate (to a degree), but you don’t any say in your destiny.

Luck of the draw, or meant to be? Our lives are impacted by forces we cannot explain, often changed for reason we will never totally understand. However, when people are touched by the hand of fate, they know it. Whether fate brings them their heart's desire, or forever closes the door to their dreams, the path that has brought them to that point is clear, and fate's irony is unmistakable.
Thomas Wilson

We can either succumb to despair and assume the attitude of the put upon victim, powerless to change our fate, or we can decide to turn the tragedy into an opportunity.

Fate, coincidence, luck, chance … ? I don't think so. I am convinced that many times, in the course of our lives, God challenges us with a golden opportunity, a seemingly impossible hurdle, or a terrible tragedy … and how we react - or fail to react - determines the course of our future, almost as if we were involved in some sort of heavenly chess game … with our destiny always in the balance.
