The Dag Hammarskjold letters part three

Dear Dag Hammarskjold,

Thank you for the further clarification of your quote that I see every day on my walk to work. As you know from my previous letters your quote is in a mini plaza I pass through, where it is etched in stone, which just goes to show that other people have found it as important and inspiring as I have. In case you forgot it's the one that goes: 

“We are not permitted to choose the frame of our destiny, but what we put into it is ours.”

So I get it now that you can't change the frame of your destiny (thanks, it's so obvious now), and that includes any resizing (thanks again). I also understand that I can put whatever I want into it. But what I'm wondering is, can I put a different frame of my destiny inside the frame of my destiny that I'm given, so long as I can fit it in?

And if I can, do you think it will look weird?

Thanks again for taking the time to help me out with this.

Yours (again),

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
