    • Roger Byrd: For they who await no gifts from chance have conquered fate.

      The quote is actually from a poem called "Resignation" and was written by English poet and cultural critic Matthew Arnold (1822-1888). The full quote is "Yet they, believe me, who await no gifts from Chance, have conquer'd Fate."
