destiny

A Quote by Karen Worthington on children, desires, destiny, dreams, fatherhood, god, rest, spirit, vision, and wishes

WHERE EAGLES REST Climbing higher, reaching upward, Ever soaring on. Mighty eagle- stretching out your wings to fly For the sky. Dare to be an eagle free. Dare to fly an eagle high. Dare yourself, oh dare yourself to see, Dare to be. Through the blue sky heading for the sun, See the light ahead. With desire you can make that wish come true- It's up to you. Dare to dream an eagle's dream. Dare to fly on your own wings. Dare yourself, oh dare yourself to be, Dare to reach. See the vision of what you can be- You're a child of God. Choicest spirit- everlasting destiny Waits for thee. Dare to rest where eagles rest. Know you've done your very best. With your Father you'll eternally be. Dare to see. Dare to rest where eagles rest. Know you've done your very best. With our Father we'll eternally be, Dare to see Where eagles rest.

A Quote by Joseph Epstein on ambition, birth, choice, circumstances, country, cowardice, death, decisions, destiny, history, indifference, life, parenthood, purpose, time, and universe

We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch, or the country of our birth, or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing. We do not, most of us, choose to die; nor do we choose the time or conditions of our death. But within all this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we shall live: courageously or in cowardice, honorably or dishonorably, with purpose or adrift. We decide what is important and what is trivial in life. We decide that what makes us significant is either what we do or what we refuse to do. But no matter how indifferent the universe may be to our choices and decisions, these choices and decisions are ours to make. We decide. We choose. And as we decide and choose, so are our lives formed. In the end, forming our own destiny is what ambition is about.

Time draweth wrinkles in a fair face, but addeth fresh colors to a fast friend, which neither heat, nor cold, nor misery, nor place, nor destiny, can alter or diminish.

A Quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy on belief, desires, destiny, hope, lies, peace, people, problems, rest, and work

But peace does not rest in the charters and covenants alone. It lies in the hearts and minds of all people. So let us not rest all our hopes on parchment and on paper, let us strive to build peace, a desire for peace, a willingness to work for peace in the hearts and minds of all of our people. I believe that we can. I believe the problems of human destiny are not beyond the reach of human beings.

A Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on control, destiny, hope, life, reflection, and worth

Take life too seriously, and what is it worth? If the morning wake us to no new joys, if the evening bring us not the hopes of new pleasures, is it worth while to dress and undress? Does the sun shine on me today that I may reflect on yesterday? That I may endeavor to foresee and control what can neither be foreseen nor controlled - the destiny of tomorrow?
