Fate remains wholly inexorable.
Fate has a way of circling back on a man, and taking him by surprise. A man sees things differently at different times in his life. This town didn't seem the same now that he was older.

Fate steals along with silent tread, Found oftenest in what least we dread, Frowns in the storm with angry brow, But in the sunshine strikes the blow.
William Cowper, in "A Fable" (or "The Raven"), line 36
Fate chooses our relatives, we choose our friends.
Jacques Delille|Jacques Delille, in Malheur at Pitié, canto I (1803)
How a person masters his fate is more important than what his fate is.
Wilhelm von Humboldt, as quoted in International Proverbs (2000) by Luzano Pancho Canlas
Fate is Never Final.
