Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we 
share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Readers may respond by either commenting on the quote I put forward or contributing a quote of their own. I'll include a linky list, or you can just respond in the comments.

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!   

This week's theme is fate or destiny!

“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.” --William Shakespeare
“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” --Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Some things are destined to be -- it just takes us a couple of tries to get there.” -J.R. Ward, Lover Mine
"Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart." -Marcus Aurelius
"Men are not prisoners of Fate, but only prisoners in their own minds." -Franklin Roosevelt
