This may be one of the best quotes ever.
Imam ibn Ata’illah al-Iskandari, May Allah have mercy on his soul, said:
“Aspiration which rushes on ahead cannot break through the walls of destiny. Give yourself a rest from managing! When Someone Else is doing it for you, don’t you start doing it for yourself!”
