"Sailing to the tune of our fate"

  • The 'to' doesn't sound right, what might be its replacement?
  • Can any other world replace the word tune in the sentence?
  • What is your phrase supposed to mean? What is tune of our fate? – Peter May 15 '17 at 4:27
  • The rhythm, maybe. Meaning, we are sailing through this life, as it's destined to be. Moving according to its tune. @Peter – Aqib May 15 '17 at 4:38
  • The "to" is OK. For example "marching to the beat of a different drum". You could use "tune" or "rhythm" or another synonym. It depends on what feeling you are trying to convey. – user3169 May 15 '17 at 4:44
