Fate is a plot of fenced land.

A quote from this morning's New York Times:
When I get scared, I focus on a definition of fate provided to me by a professor in college. Describing an ancient Greek perspective, he explained that fate could be imagined as a plot of fenced land. The individual cannot control where the fence stakes are placed. But every person determines for herself how she maneuvers within the enclosed space. --Loren Berlin

Actually, others of us prefer to pace back and forth discontentedly along the boundaries of our fate and HEE-HAW loudly at passers-by.
