This week's theme is fate and/or destiny!
“There are winds of destiny that blow when we least expect them. Sometimes they gust with the fury of a hurricane, sometimes they barely fan one’s cheek. But the winds cannot be denied, bringing as they often do a future that is impossible to ignore.” --Nicholas Sparks, Message in a Bottle
“A man seeks his own destiny and no other, said the judge. Wil or nill. Any man who could discover his own fate and elect therefore some opposite course could only come at last to that selfsame reckoning at the same appointed time, for each man's destiny is as large as the world he inhabits and contains within it all opposites as well. The desert upon which so many have been broken is vast and calls for largeness of heart but it is also ultimately empty. It is hard, it is barren. Its very nature is stone.”--Cormac McCarthy
"How a person masters his fate is more important than what his fate is." --Karl Wilhelm von Humbolt
"When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside as fate." --Carl Jung
"As we move through life, the force of fate creates events that we only appreciate when we reflect on our existence." --Ronald Harmon
