Tiffanie DeBartolo
“Fate is just another word for people's choices coming to a head. Destiny, coincidence, whatever you name it. It inevitably lies in our hands.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star

Paulo Coelho
“I believe in signs....what we need to learn is always there before us, we just have to look around us with respect & attention to discover where God is leading us and which step we should take. When we are on the right path, we follow the signs, and if we occasionally stumble, the Divine comes to our aid, preventing us from making mistakes.”
Paulo Coelho, The Zahir

Rainer Maria Rilke
“There is only one way: Go within. Search for the cause, find the impetus that bids you write. Put it to this test: Does it stretch out its roots in the deepest place of your heart? Can you avow that you would die if you were forbidden to write? Above all, in the most silent hour of your night, ask yourself this: Must I write? Dig deep into yourself for a true answer. And if it should ring its assent, if you can confidently meet this serious question with a simple, “I must,” then build your life upon it. It has become your necessity. Your life, in even the most mundane and least significant hour, must become a sign, a testimony to this urge.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Elizabeth Gilbert
“Destiny, I feel is also a relationship-a play between grace and willful self-effort. Half of it you have no control over, half of it is absolutely in your hands and your actions will show measurable consequences. Man is neither entirely a puppet of the gods, nor is he entirely the captain of his own destiny; he’s a little of both. We gallop through our lives like circus performers balancing on two speeding side-by-side horses-one foot is on the horse called “fate” the other on the horse called “free will”. And the question you have to ask everyday is, Which horse is which? Which horse do I need to stop worrying about because it’s not under my control, and which do I need to steer with concentrated effort?”
Elizabeth Gilbert

Lorii Myers

It becomes you. Greatness becomes you.”
Lorii Myers, Targeting Success, Develop the Right Business Attitude to be Successful in the Workplace

Joan Bauer
“When you have something so important, something that you'll stay awake for, something you know that you were designed to do, well, it's worth getting a few dark circles, don't you think?”
Joan Bauer, Peeled

F. Sionil José
“Time will come that all that we love, we will eventually lose, and all that we hate we will eventually face.”
F. Sionil José

Israelmore Ayivor
“If you have no good drive in you, your life will not be steered through a good direction. It will miss its destined station. Passion or drive is what moves the vehicle of a fulfilled life.”
Israelmore Ayivor

Jennifer Elisabeth
“I look out into the water and up deep into the stars. I beg the sparkling lanterns of light to cure me of myself — my past and the kaleidoscope of mistakes, failures and wrong turns that have stacked unbearable regret upon my shoulders.”
Jennifer Elisabeth, Born Ready: Unleash Your Inner Dream Girl

Abraham Lincoln
“The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battle-field, and patriot grave, to every living heart and hearth-stone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.
--as quoted in THE RIVER OF WINGED DREAMS”
Abraham Lincoln

S.M. Boyce
“The time will come when you will doubt everything you stand for, but you must push forward and never stop. Do not let others speak for you, or you will lose your voice forever.” ~The Grimoire”
S.M. Boyce, Lichgates

Shinobu Ohtaka
“Destiny isn't something you make as you're told. By overcoming difficulties, life and this whole world can advance forward. That's what destiny is for. A world that has lost the power to advance forward, will be destroyed - Aladdin”
Shinobu Ohtaka

Daisaku Ikeda
“Culture is an elevated expression of the inner voice which the different peoples of the Earth have heard in the depths of their being, a voice which conveys the vibrant compassion and wisdom of the cosmic life. For different cultures to engage in interaction is to catalyze each other's souls and foster mutual understanding.”
Daisaku Ikeda

Neal A. Maxwell
“There are certain mortal moments and minutes that matter. Certain hingepoints in the history of each human. Some seconds are so decisive they shrink the soul, while others are spent, so as to stretch the soul.”
Neal A. Maxwell

Tad Williams
“After all, is it not the way we humans shape the universe, shape time itself? Do we not take the raw stuff of chaos and impose a beginning, middle, and end on it, like the simplest and most profound of folktales, to reflect the shapes of our own tiny lives? And if the physicists are right, that the physical world changes as it is observed, and we are its only known observers, then might we not be bending the entire chaotic universe, the eternal, ever-active Now, to fit that familiar form?”
Tad Williams, Sea of Silver Light

Robert Galbraith
“Lightning doesn't strike twice.”
Robert Galbraith, The Silkworm

Guy Gavriel Kay
“By things so achingly small are lives measured and marred.”
Guy Gavriel Kay, Tigana

Leo Buscaglia
“I believe that you control your destiny, that you can be what you want to be. You can also stop and say, 'No, I won't do it, I won't behave his way anymore. I'm lonely and I need people around me, maybe I have to change my methods of behaving,' and then you do it.”
Leo Buscaglia

Besa Kosova
“There comes a moment in life when you say to yourself – enough. This is ENOUGH! Then – you take a walk with your destiny. To change. To fulfill your purpose. We all have it. But are you willing to take that first step?”
Besa Kosova

“To think that we might easily have gone through life not knowing each other, missing all this free flow of love and ideas and warmth and sharing... We share really almost everything. (Avis DeVoto to Julia Child)”
Joan Reardon, As Always, Julia: The Letters of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto: Food, Friendship, and the Making of a Masterpiece

Jennifer Elisabeth
“Does our purpose on Earth directly link to the people whom we end up meeting? Are our relationships and experiences actually the required dots that connect and then lead us to our ultimate destinies?”
Jennifer Elisabeth, Born Ready: Unleash Your Inner Dream Girl

“‎Destiny finds those who listen, and fate finds the rest.”
Marshall Masters

J.A. Belfield
“My name's Sean, Jem. I'm Sean.”
J.A. Belfield, Darkness & Light

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
“Carmelia Montiel, a twenty-year-old virgin, had just bathed in orange-blossom water and was strewing rosemary leaves on Pilar Ternera's bed when the shot rang out. Aureliano José had been destined to find with her the happiness that Amaranta had denied him, to have seven children, and to die in her arms of old age, but the bullet that entered his back and shattered his chest had been directed by a wrong interpretation of the cards.”
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Catherynne M. Valente
“Once more September marveled that even the Dodo knew what she wanted to be when she was grown. She simply could not think what she herself might do. September expected that destinies, which is how she thought of professions, simply landed upon one like a crown, and ever after no one questioned or fretted over it, being sure of one’s own use in the world. It was only that somehow her crown had not yet appeared. She did hope it would hurry up.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There

Arthur Kemp
“Demographics is destiny”
Arthur Kemp

Jennifer Elisabeth
“Something, somewhere, knows what’s best for me and promises to keep sending me people and experiences to light my way as long as I live in gratitude and keep paying attention to the signs.”
Jennifer Elisabeth

Jennifer Elisabeth
“I’ve grown up defined by this desperate, undeniable, ‘can’t breathe’ kind of space inside of myself and I’m afraid that the diagnosis is fatal.”
Jennifer Elisabeth
