Destiny

We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. • E.M. Forester

Why join the navy if you can be a pirate? • Steve Jobs

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. • William Jennings Bryan

Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. • Author Unknown

Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently--they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do. • Steve Jobs

The thirst for adventure is the vent which destiny offers; a war, a crusade, a gold mine, a new country, speak to the imagination and offer swing and play to the confined powers. • Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be - brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so small that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in us, it’s in everyone.
As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. • Marianne Williamson, 1992 (Used by Nelson Mandela in his 1994 Inaugural Speech)

I want to put a ding in the universe. • Steve Jobs

Though there will be different chapters and different calls, there will be a theme or undercurrent that brings unity to who we are and who we are called to be. • Gordon T. Smith

History will be kind to me for I intend to write it. • Winston Churchill

There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind. • C.S. Lewis
