Sayings of a Gadfly

 A man said, “It is too difficult to change this.  It must be my fate.” 

 The Gadfly said, “Fate is when we meet the motions of the universe with the passion of our own hearts, and the resulting song weaves together the threads of our lives.  Your own voice plays a part in this melody.  Therefore, you cannot resign yourself to fate.  For fate has already placed itself in your hands.” 

 A woman said, “What do you mean?  I cannot control everything that happens to me.” 

 The Gadfly replied, “The captain of a ship cannot control the weather, yet when the storm comes, she is still in command of her vessel.”
