To a woman who complained about her destiny the Master said,
“It is you who make your destiny.”
“But surely I am not responsible for being born a woman?”
“Being born a woman isn’t destiny. That is fate.
Destiny is how you accept your womanhood and-what you make of it.”

Footnote::Most people use fate and destiny interchangeably, but they aren’t the same. Fate is the life you lead if you never put yourself in the path of greatness. That’s the direction your life moves in without any effort on your part. … Destiny is your potential waiting to happen.
