Fate

= something destined or suitable, is not the Latin fatum, but the French fait = share, one's own, that which suits one; as “voila mon fait,” that is the man for me.

“Pour moi, ma sieur, a dit la cadette, j'aime le solide, je veux un homme riche, et le gros don Blanco sera mon fait.”

Le Sage: Diable Boiteux.
