"Fate"



"A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it." -- Jean De La Fontaine

"He that is born to be hanged shall never be drowned." -- Unknown

"Things don't happen for a reason; they just happen." -- Meg Ryan in "Proof of Life", as the character Alice Bowman

"Men stumble over the truth from time to time, but most pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing happened." -- Sir Winston Churchill

"Every moment, a Christian is in a storm, leaving a storm, or going to a storm." -- Unknown

Random quotes say random things, not all of which agree. Though "fate" is often confused with Biblical predestination, the "Alice Bowman" quote best represents true "fate" -- a "fatalistic" world view.

David, thanks for stopping by and commenting at 'Seeking the Old Paths'. Thanks also for the invitation to the Reformed Reader discussion board. Is the correct url www.reformedreader.org? The other one took me elsewhere.

Have a great day.
