[ Also see Accident Chance Change Circumstance Destiny Fortune God Gods Life Luck Necessity Opportunity Oracle Providence Success Vicissitudes ]

The wrath peculiar to ardent natures rudely awakened by the sudden annihilation of a hope--dream, if you will--in which the choicest happinesses were thought to be certainly in reach. In such cases nothing intermediate will carry off the passion,--the quarrel is with fate. * * * It were well in such quarrels if fate were something tangible, to be despatched with a look or a blow, or a speaking personage with whom high words were possible; then the unhappy mortal would not always end the affair by punishing himself.
      - Lewis (Lew) Wallace

I saw him even now going the way of all flesh.
      - John Webster, Westward Ho (act II, sc. 2)

"Ah me! what boots us all our boasted power,
  Our golden treasure, and our purple state.
    They cannot ward the inevitable hour
      Nor stay the fearful violence of fate."
      - Richard West, Monody on Queen Caroline

This day we fashion Destiny, our web of Fate we spin.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, The Crisis
         (st. 10)

Man blindly works the will of fate.
  [Ger., Blindlings that er blos den Willen des Geschickes.]
      - Christoph Martin Wieland, Oberon (IV, 59)

The compulsion of fate is bitter.
  [Ger., Des Schiksals Swang ist bitter.]
      - Christoph Martin Wieland, Oberon (V, 60)

Fate is character.
      - William Winter

My fearful trust "en vogant la galere." [Come what may.]
      - Sir Thomas Wyatt (Wyat),
        The Lover Prayeth Venue
