“I don’t want to be a product of my environment. I want my environment to be a product of me.” Frank Costello in the movie ‘The Departed’
Then I saw this on a poster in a shop window…
“Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Then I heard this in a TV programme…
Father to daughter, “We either define our fate, or we are defined by it.”
Once is happenstance, twice is a coincidence, three times?
I came up with my own version…
“If we don’t design our fate, then we give fate the right to design us.”
Is that the message?
My best wishes, Paul
