"Serendipity. Look for something, find something else, and realize that what you've found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for." Lawrence Block
"In reality, serendipity accounts for one percent of the blessings we receive in life, work and love. The other 99 percent is due to our efforts." Peter McWilliams

"Serendipity is putting a quarter in the gumball machine and having three pieces come rattling out instead of one—all red." Peter H. Reynolds
"--- you don't reach Serendib by plotting a course for it. You have to set out in good faith for elsewhere and lose your bearings ... serendipitously." John Barth,

Man! Who knows it better than me what a blessing it can be :)

Anyway, somehow its what gives life a charm. Its that eternal hope.

IT's so weird, people usually associate serendipity with love - cos of the movie. for me its actually so much more. the course of my life, finding V, the career ive landed up in. its all serendipity!

That's true, most people associate it with only love.

But I have to side with you there, I said anyway its the eternal hope because in anything and everything the fact that you can land up where you never planned to, and love it ... it gives a charm to even the most mundane things. A very big reason for why I love travelling is this.

Moreover, it just fits my belief of the greater design :)
