Extracts from Amiels Journal Destiny (just before death)
By Henri Frédéric Amiel (18211881)
Translation of Mary Augusta Ward
APRIL 10TH, 1881 [he died May 11th].What dupes we are of our own desires! Destiny has two ways of crushing usby refusing our wishes and by fulfilling them. But he who only wills what God wills escapes both catastrophes. All things work together for his good.
