Circumstances Quotes

Two of the best book quotes about circumstances
  1. #1
    “Things happen to people by accident … A lot of nice accidents have happened to me. It just happened that I always liked lessons and books, and could remember things when I learned them. It just happened that I was born with a father who was beautiful and nice and clever, and could give me everything I liked.
    Perhaps I have not really a good temper at all, but if you have everything you want and everyone is kind to you, how can you help but be good-tempered? I don’t know … how I shall ever find out whether I am really a nice child or a horrid one. Perhaps I’m a hideous child, and no one will ever know, just because I never have any trials.”
  2. #2
    “A man is worked upon by what he works on. He may carve out his circumstances, but his circumstances will carve him out as well.”
