Conduct, which involves a decision of the ultimate fate of the agent cannot be based on illusions.
Evil is done without effort, naturally, it is the working of fate; good is always the product of an art.
Fate is not an eagle, it creeps like a rat.
Heart is what drives us and determines our fate.
Can you make a mistake and miss your fate?
Sarah Jessica Parker
Human reason needs only to will more strongly than fate, and she is fate.
American policy seems to be wed to a perpetual state of war. Why? History shows that the world will always be in flux or turmoil, with different peoples competing for visibility and power. The U.S. cannot fix the fate of every nation.
