"Everything comes if a man will only wait."
-Benjamin Disraeli, Tancred
"Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved."
William Jennings Bryan, Memoirs
Assignment: Should we wait for good things to come, or is destiny not something we can wait for? Plan and write an essay in which you develop your point of view on this issue. Support your position with reasoning and examples taken from your reading,studies,experience,or observations.
Please correct, give feedback, and grade.
Destiny is an abstract concept. It can be controlled and not controlled. Good things can come to people naturally or people can obtain good things through their achievements. We should both wait for good things to come and not wait depending on the circumstances.
Good things can come to people when they wait. For example, a person who strives to work hard in college for four years will surely have good results. Through patience, that person experience joy in his or her success. Waiting may take a long time, but good things take time. How can someone get good grades when they do not take the time to study and wait for the result? We can wait for good things to come, but there are times when we can not wait.
A person can shape his or her own destiny by achieving something. For instance, a teen might successfully abstain himself or herself. By doing so, she or he is setting a good start in marriage. Their destiny is controllable. They are making a choice and not simply waiting. Destiny depends on the circumstances.
We should wait for good things to come. Through patience, a person can procure what he or she aims for. There are times when it is possible for someone to manipulate his or her destiny. This is based on the decision a person makes to accomplish his or her goals.
