Don’t hold on to someone who’s leaving, otherwise you won’t meet the one who’s coming.
Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.
I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.
When I was a child, my mother said to me, 'If you become a soldier, you'll be a general. if you become a monk you'll end up as the pope.' Instead I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.
Whom the gods love die young.
If you don't know where you are going, any road will take you there.

Such as we are made of, such we be.
Chance is a word void of sense; nothing can exist without a cause.
You cannot be lost on a road that is straight.
If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere.
Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for: it is a thing to be achieved.
Everything that exists is in a manner the seed of that which will be.
