I want to learn more and more to see as beautiful what is necessary in things; then I shall be one of those who make things beautiful. Amor fati: let that be my love henceforth! I do not want to wage war against what is ugly. I do not want to accuse; I do not even want to accuse those who accuse. Looking away shall be my only negation. And all in all and on the whole: some day I wish to be only a Yes-sayer.
— Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science
Do not seek for things to happen the way you want them to; rather, wish that what happens happen the way it happens: then you will be happy.
— Epictetus, The Enchiridion
All that is in accord with you is in accord with me, O World! Nothing which occurs at the right time for you comes too soon or too late for me. All that your seasons produce, O Nature, is fruit for me. It is from you that all things come: all things are within you, and all things move toward you.
— Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, IV.23
