 The part from Ecclesiastes that Runyon missed, "but time and chance happeneth to them all," was covered in another of Runyon's gems that I have shared before, the one mentioning that all life is 6:5 against. I think the Bard deserves to be included with this list and one of my favorites that is related is from Hamlet:

"Not a whit. We defy augury. There's a special providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now, 'tis not to come. If it be not to come, it will be now. If it be not now, yet it will come–the readiness is all."

I can still hear my college professor repeating this line with all his British vigor. The readiness is all!
