What will be, will be!


We all have to resort to believing in destiny at some or the other point in our lives, and that usually happens when we don't have much idea about what is happening in our lives, or maybe even why it is happening.

If it is actually in our moments of decision that our destiny is shaped, then more often than not we should be aware about what lies in store for us. This, surprisingly, doesn't happen. When anything goes wrong, we blame it on destiny. When there is no explanation for an event to occur, we blame it on destiny. When our brain stops comprehending whats happening around us, we blame it on destiny. In simple words, as soon as we think we are losing control over our lives, and someone (something!) has to take charge, we blame it on destiny!!

This blame-game just makes life easier. No questions asked, no explanations sought! It also is a really nice way to pacify oneself about their life. its not really our fault when things go downhill, "because its written". How convenient!

These are some of my favorite quotes on destiny:

No living man can send me to the shades Before my time; no man of woman born, Coward or brave, can shun his destiny.
Author: Homer

Destiny is no 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.
Author: Wiiliam Jennings Brian


Men heap together the mistakes of their lives and create a monster they call destiny.
Author: John Oliver Hobbes


Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by man. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings.
Author: John F Kennedy

"jo nasseb mein likha hai, woh to hoga hee"

This is stupid. You are SO right.
"When there is no explanation for an event to occur, we blame it on destiny."
Bilkul sach kaha! Polygraph Test kehta hai...yeh jawab sach hai!

"Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice"

Me likey!

Except...whenever something good happens to me, THEN I blame destiny. Not blame, more like...thank?

Is that wrong too?

@Abhinav: Even though we know what we are doing, we still try to ignore it.

@Srishti: Thanking destiny is ok. its like thanking God, I guess! But its
not bad, for sure. :)
