My mother says healers are born, not made.

Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

Because everything that goes around comes around. Maybe it’s luck or maybe it’s fate, but either way, it comes back around.

Stephen King, Doctor Sleep

He had come to believe that life was a series of ironic ambushes.

Stephen King, Doctor Sleep

Everything is the way it is because everything was the way it was. Sometimes I feel ensnared in this, as if no matter what I do, what will come has already been fixed.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

We are meant to be here. We step from one piece of holy ground to the next under stars that ask “Imagine, for one second, you could drop in on a past life. What would you like to find yourself doing there? What would charm you, make you proud?” Ask yourself that, and the question of what to do in this life becomes so simple its terrifying. Just to do that thing that would charm you, that would make you say, “Yes, its the real me”. Do that, and you’re alive.


You drive your own course of fate.

Gillian Anderson

I admire addicts. In a world where everybody is waiting for some blind, random disaster or some sudden disease, the addict has the comfort of knowing what will most likely wait for him down the road. He’s taken some control over his ultimate fate, and his addiction keeps the cause of his death from being a total surprise.

Chuck Palahniuk, Choke

Destiny is a fickle bitch.

Benjamin Linus, LOST

Don’t mistake coincidence for fate.

Mr. Eko, LOST

The great moments of your life won’t necessarily be the things you do. They’ll also be the things that happen to you. Now, I’m not saying you can’t take action to affect the outcome of your life. You have to take action. And you will! But never forget, that on any day, you could step out the front door, and your whole life could change forever. You see the Universe has a plan kids; and that plan is always in motion. A butterfly flaps its wings, and it starts to rain. It’s a scary thought, but it’s also kind of wonderful. All these little parts of the machine constantly working… Making sure that you end up exactly where you’re supposed to be.. exactly when you’re supposed to be there. The right place. At the right time.

Ted Mosby, How I Met Your Mother
