Famous quotes containing the word fate:

    And last of all, high over thought, in the world of morals, Fate appears as vindicator, levelling the high, lifting the low, requiring justice in man, and always striking soon or late when justice is not done. What is useful will last, what is hurtful will sink.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
