„We will not lose hope because we have the certainty that our destiny is not in the hands of a man or a superpower. Our destiny is in the hands of God, a Provident Father. It is in Him, and only in Him, that our salvation lies.“

—  Georges Abou Khazen Syrian bishop 1947

„Wyrd is the unfolding of our personal destiny. It has sometimes been translated into modern English as "fate." But it is much deeper than that. It does not see our lives as "pre-determined."“

—  Brian Bates British academic 1944

Way of Wyrd, Introduction : What is "Wyrd"? http://www.wayofwyrd.com/introduction_pc.html
Kontext: Wyrd is the unfolding of our personal destiny. It has sometimes been translated into modern English as "fate." But it is much deeper than that. It does not see our lives as "pre-determined." Rather, it is an all-encompassing view which connects us to all things, thoughts, emotions, events in the cosmos as if through the threads of an enormous, invisible but dynamic web. Today, scientists know intellectually that all things are interconnected. But the power of Wyrd is to realise this in our inner being, and to know how to use it to manifest our personal destiny.
Today, through a deep connection with wyrd, we are inspired to see our lives in a new and empowering way. It restores our experience of the healing power of love, nature and creativity. It is about letting into our lives the guidance of an extended universe of spirit. It brings ancient wisdom together with modern science in the service of enhancing our lives, and the integrity of our human presence on the planet.

„There is no creature whose inward being is so strong that it is not greatly determined by what lies outside it.“

—  George Eliot, buch Middlemarch

Middlemarch (1871)
Kontext: There is no creature whose inward being is so strong that it is not greatly determined by what lies outside it. A new Theresa will hardly have the opportunity of reforming a conventual life, any more than a new Antigone will spend her heroic piety in daring all for the sake of a brother's burial: the medium in which their ardent deeds took shape is forever gone. But we insignificant people with our daily words and acts are preparing the lives of many Dorotheas, some of which may present a far sadder sacrifice than that of the Dorothea whose story we know.
