Famous quotes containing the word destiny:

    There is a power in love to divine another’s destiny better than that other can, and, by heroic engagements, hold him to his task.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    When pain of the world surrounds us with darkness and despair,
    When searching just confounds us with false hopes ev’rywhere,
    When lives are starved for meaning and destiny is bare,
    We are called to follow Jesus and let God’s healing flow through us.
    Jim Strathdee (20th century)

    Give up the feeling of responsibility, let go your hold, resign the care of your destiny to higher powers, be genuinely indifferent as to what becomes of it all and you will find not only that you gain a perfect inward relief, but often also, in addition, the particular goods you sincerely thought you were renouncing.
    William James (1842–1910)
