48 Fate Quotes
May these fate quotes make you think about who is responsible for your life and the things that happen.

Quote of The Day |
I can control my destiny, but not my fate. Destiny means there are
opportunities to turn right or left, but fate is a one-way street.

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.
Hamid Hacker, Understanding The Law Of Attraction
Words of Encouragement |
Fate is a train roaring down the track of life. Sometimes you step off the track, and unless you look back over your shoulder and see the train go roaring past, you don't know what you missed.

Winston Churchill Quotes |

and still unknown to himself.
Fate means seeing the hand of God move clearly through your life, even with your eyes closed.
Poems about God |
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.
First, imagine taking the potentially regret - producing path of inaction.
Then imagine what the very best outcome would be were you to take this risk.
By picturing both scenarios in advance, you can avoid the regret of what
might have been.
Wayne Dyer, Wisdom of the Ages

day that fate allows you.
Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that
these people are to be free; nor is it less certain that the two races,
equally free, cannot live in the same government.

and I will have to accept it." A positive thinker would say, "I
will decide my fate and my own destiny."
Bill Mcdowell, Positive Thinking

Fate rules the affairs of mankind with no recognizable order.
Top Ten Quotes |
When we are born, no one immediately knows our destiny or outcome in life,
save the Creator Himself, but while we are here, we too can choose
and direct ourselves onto a path to better our circumstances."
Carey W. Digsby Jr
If you ensure that your team can't operate efficiently without you,
you may have sealed your own non-promotional fate. As well, if you
do not develop your team to function without you, you are, in essence,
saying that you still operate as an old style manager.
Byron and Catherine Pulsifer, Leadership vs Management
Tenacious people don't rely on luck, fate, or destiny for their success.
And when conditions become difficult, they keep working.
John C. Maxwell, The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player
To simplify things down to their real essence, whenever things go wrong
in our lives, whenever our plans go awry and the things we took for granted
suddenly disappear, we have a very simple choice. 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.
Everything happens when it's supposed to.
Michelle C. Ustaszeski
More than at any other time, when I hold a beloved book in my hand
my limitations fall from me, my spirit is free. Books are my compensation
for the harms of fate.
They give me a world for a lost world, and for mortals who have
disappointed me they give me gods.
Quotes about Books |
How you feel and how you react is in direct relation to how you think.
Some people let random
circumstances predict their day.

Inspirational Thoughts |
Your beliefs, all of those formless energy patterns that you've adopted
as your self-image, have the ability to change dramatically and
give you the power
to conquer unwanted traits, or what you unhappily presume to be your fate.
Wayne W. Dyer, Excuses Begone!
Everything comes gradually at its appointed hour.
Actions are the seed of fate.
Harry S Truman
When I was younger, things happened in my life that made me
wonder if they were a coincidence or was it fate? And now, as
the years have passed, I strongly believe everything happens
for a reason.
Quotes about Life |
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people
with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.
Fate is not quite as strange as it appears!
John McLeod, Frames of a Sea Lover
Fate and self-help share equally in shaping our destiny.
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.
Og Mandino, A Better Way to Live
Life is uncertain, the future unknown. This is neither good nor bad.
It just is, like gravity. Yet the task remains: how to master our own fate,
Jim Collins; Morten T. Hansen, Great by Choice
Let nothing distract us from being happy, let nothing else determine our
fate, but ourselves.
Olehile Fischer Thataone
There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can hinder or control
the firm resolve of a determined soul.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
We are partners by fate. We become friends by choice.
Each man is the architect of his own fate.
We create our fate every day we live.
Tempted fate will leave the loftiest star.
If you can't change your fate, change your attitude.
Of course a human life advances from day to day, and regresses,
and we do see different faculties develop and watch them wither.
Still, the innate image of your fate holds all in the copresence of today,
yesterday, and tomorrow.
James Hillman, The Soul's Code: In Search of Character and Calling
Most people live and die with their music still unplayed. They never dare
Chance is a word void of sense; nothing can exist without a cause.
Men are not prisoners of fate, but only prisoners of their own minds.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
What fates impose, that men must needs abide; it boots not to resist
both wind and tide.
As we move through life, the force of fate creates events that we only
appreciate when we reflect on our existence.
This is how life works. We are neither the authors nor the pawns
of our life stories but rather partners somehow with fate or destiny
or circumstance or providence.
John Ortberg, All the Places to Go . . . How Will You Know
