The often misquoted Shakespeare: "it is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves"- is not what Julius Caesar said or meant when he said: Men at some time are masters of their fates. The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars But in ourselves, that we are underlings. (Act2, Sc 2). Never make Shakespeare less than what he was. He knew the stars were the great symbols of our destiny and that we cannot always control where we are or where we head.
