Destiny Quotations

Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.
Octavia Butler

You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
Steve Jobs

It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.
William Shakespeare

It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.
Tony Robbins

Once an object has been incorporated in a picture it accepts a new destiny.
