What is predestination? Answer: God is more powerful and wiser than we are, therefore he deals with us according to his pleasure.     

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

By predestination we mean the eternal decree of God, by which He determined with Himself whatever He wished to happen with regard to every man.     

John Calvin
