“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”
“One love, one heart, one destiny.”
“Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny.”
“There’s nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be…”
“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”
“There are no wrong turnings. Only paths we had not known we were meant to walk.”
“I told you. You don’t love someone because of their looks or their clothes or their car. You love them because they sing a song only your heart can understand.”
“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”
“Sometimes the dreams that come true are the dreams you never even knew you had.”
“Some things are destined to be — it just takes us a couple of tries
to get there.”
“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.”
“Of course it hurt that we could never love each other in a physical way. We would have been far more happy if we had.
But that was like the tides, the change of seasons–something immutable, an immovable destiny
we could never alter. No matter how cleverly we might shelter it, our delicate friendship wasn’t going to last forever. We were bound to reach a dead end. That was painfully clear.”
:“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away.
Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry
the Universe or be crushed by it.
You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.”
Boyd, Daily Afflictions: The Agony of Being Connected to Everything in the Universe
“Does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker?”
“Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone – we find it with another.”
“What we call our destiny is truly our character and that character can be altered. The knowledge that we are responsible for our actions and attitudes does not need to be discouraging, because
it also means that we are free to change this destiny. One is not in bondage to the past, which has shaped our feelings, to race
, inheritance, background. All this can be altered if we have the courage to examine how it formed us. We can alter the chemistry provided we have the courage to dissect the elements.”
“You are not the victim of the world, but rather the master of your own destiny. It is your choices and decisions that determine your destiny.”

“Destiny is usually just around the corner. Like a thief, a hooker, or a lottery vendor: its three most common personifications. But what destiny does not do is home visits. You have to go for it.”
“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.”
“I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.”
“Even if things don’t unfold the way you expected, don’t be disheartened or give up. One who continues to advance will win in the end.”

“If you want to identify me, ask me not where I live, or what I like to eat, or how I comb my hair, but ask me what I am living for, in detail, ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully for the thing I want to live for.”
“It doesn’t have to be on Valentine’s Day. It doesn’t have to be by the time you turn eighteen or thirty-three or fifty-nine.
It doesn’t have to conform to whatever is usual. It doesn’t have to be kismet at once, or rhapsody by the third date.
It just has to be. In time. In place. In spirit.
It just has to be.”
“I am the sum total of everything that went before me, of all I have been seen done, of everything done-to-me.
I am everyone everything whose being-in-the-world affected was affected by mine. I am anything that happens after I’m gone which would not have happened if I had not come.”
“That which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our own destiny. Be it through intention or ignorance,
our successes and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves.”
“I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life”
“Do you ever wonder why things have to turn out the way they do?”

“You are not a victim. No matter what you have been through, you’re still here. You may have been challenged, hurt, betrayed, beaten, and discouraged, but nothing has defeated you. You are still here! You have been delayed but not denied.
You are not a victim, you are a victor. You have a history of victory.”
