Quotes and Sayings about Fate & Destiny

Destiny, an invisible thread guiding our paths. Sometimes it leads us to unexpected encounters and opportunities, other times to painful separations. It is a web of coincidences and serendipities, sending us on a journey of life. In the highs and lows, we realize destiny teaches us to grow and trust. It reminds us that we are part of a grander design and that every chapter shapes our story. In the dance of destiny, we find strength and hope to embrace the unknown paths ahead.

Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.
Fate is called as such, for it cannot be changed, nor can it be reversed. It can only but be accepted.
May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face and may the wings of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars.
