About Fate and Destiny

A man named Robert Collier once wrote, 

“The study of the life-story of successful men in all walks of life will illustrate this principle 
to you so forcibly that, having perceived it, you will never again doubt its absolute truth. In 
practically every case you will find that these successful men have been knocked down, and bowled out, many times in the early days of their careers…often even later on in life. But the knock-out, though perhaps dazing them for a short time, never robbed them of their gameness, their will to succeed. They always arose to their feet before they were counted out; and they always firmly, but resolutely , faced Fate.

Thought their “heads were bloody, they were unbowed,”as Henley triumphantly chants. Fate cannot defeat such a spirit; in time, Destiny recognizes the fact that, “here is a man,”- and being feminine, she falls in love with him and bestows her favors upon him.”( This comes form a book printing of the 27Th edition in 1975)So please allow if the way Destiny is called feminine is not currently politically correct.
