Fate

Famous quotes containing the word fate:

    Ev’n thou who mourn’st the Daisy’s fate,
    That fate is thine—no distant date;
    Stern Ruin’s ploughshare drives , elate,
    Full on thy bloom,
    Till crush’d beneath the furrow’s weight,
    Shall be thy doom.
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)

    For when we must resign our vital breath,
    Our Loves by Fate benighted,
    We by this friendship shall survive in death,
    Even in divorce united.
    Weak Love through fortune or distrust
    In time forgets to burn,
    But this pursues us to the Urn,
    And marries either’s Dust.
    Thomas Stanley (1625–1678)

    I have, as when the sun doth light a storm,
    Buried this sigh in wrinkle of a smile;
    But sorrow that is couched in seeming gladness
    Is like that mirth fate turns to sudden sadness.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
