The Epicureans challenged the Stoic beliefs by denying the existence of this divine fate. They believed that a human's actions were voluntary so long as they were rational. In daily language, "destiny" and "fate" are synonymous, but with regard to 19th-century philosophy , the words gained inherently different meanings.
For Arthur Schopenhauer , destiny was just a manifestation of the Will to Live, which can be at the same time living fate and choice of overrunning fate, by means of the Art , of the Morality and of the Ascesis.
For Friedrich Nietzsche , destiny keeps the form of Amor fati Love of Fate through the important element of Nietzsche's philosophy, the " will to power " der Wille zur Macht , the basis of human behavior, influenced by the Will to Live of Schopenhauer. But this concept may have even other senses, although he, in various places, saw the will to power as a strong element for adaptation or survival in a better way. The expression Amor fati is used repeatedly by Nietzsche as acceptation-choice of the fate , but in such way it becomes even another thing, precisely a "choice" destiny.
Ayer have written about this notion. Among the representatives of depth psychology school, the greatest contribution to the study of the notion such as "fate" was made by Carl Gustav Jung , Sigmund Freud and Leopold Szondi. Metaphorical expressions of a predetermined destiny are commonly used by politicians to describe events not understood.
Cataclysmic events are dismissed as 'a shifting of the political tectonic plates'. In War and Peace , Leo Tolstoy wrote of the 'unconscious swarm-life of mankind', while Shakespeare spoke of a 'tide in the affairs of men' in his play Julius Caesar.

W Jacobs' popular short story " The Monkey's Paw " Without a purpose, life is trivial, petty, and pointless. We ask self-centered questions like: What do I want to be? What should I do with my life? What are my goals, my ambitions, my dreams for my future? We become preoccupied with making a living, doing our work, paying bills, and accomplishing goals as if these tasks are the point of life. They are not. The point of life is learning to love — God and people. Life minus love equals zero. It is during suffering that we learn to pray our most authentic, heartfelt, honest-to-God prayers.
