Amor Fati is a Latin phrase that could be translated as either “love of fate” or “love of one’s fate”. A central tenet of the ancient and practial philosophy of Stoicism, it is often represented by the symbol of fire. As Marcus Aurelius, the Stoic Emperor of Rome, wrote a blazing fire makes flame and brightness out of everything that is thrown into it.

He also expressed his own version of Amor Fati when he said all that is in accord with you is in accord with me, O World! Nothing which occurs at the right time for you comes too soon or too late for me. All that your seasons produce, O Nature, is fruit for me.
