After a pause, he asked, 'What do you think of Nasuada's plans?' 'Mmm...she's doomed! You're doomed! They're all doomed!'She cackled, doubling over, then straightened abruptly. 'notice I didn't specify what kind of doom, so no matter what happens, I predicted it. How very wise of me.' She lifted the basket again, setting it on one hip. 'I supposed I won't see you for a while, so farewell, best of luck, avoid roasted cabbage, don't eat earwax, and look on the bright side of life!' And with a cheery wink, she strolled off, leaving Eragon blinking and nonplussed.
You are doomed to a life that will repeat itself again and again, as do all lives-for lives are static things, readings of already written papers-but whereas some men are fortunate to repeat a good pattern, others have the opposite luck-and you can surely see by now that your life is doomed to this same humiliation, endlessly repeated.
...finally men were saved only through God's son dying for them, and that unless human beings believed this silly, impossible and wicked story they were doomed to hell? Can anyone with intelligence really believe that a child born today should be doomed because the snake tempted Eve and Eve tempted Adam? To believe that is not God-worship; it is devil-worship.
eRemember though, that happiness can never be achieved through the expectations levied on another; such a notion is not doomed to fail-but is just doomed! Happiness can never be achieved through the distress or destruction that one imposes on the other person. When a child, now grown-up, does not resolve their deep-seeded anger with a parent or parents, the 'other person' plays Hell trying to make-up for it. Married, divorced or dead, the 'other person' can never replace what was lost so much earlier in the life and soul of the oppressed. Forgiveness must be the course for any future, substantive relationships.

Listen, are we helpless? Are we doomed to do it again and again and again? Have we no choice but to play the Phoenix in an unending sequence of rise and fall? Assyria, Babylon, Egypt, Greece, Carthage, Rome, the Empires of Charlemagne and the Turk: Ground to dust and plowed with salt. Spain, France, Britain, America""burned into the oblivion of the centuries. And again and again and again. Are we doomed to it, Lord, chained to the pendulum of our own mad clockwork, helpless to halt its swing? This time, it will swing us clean to oblivion.
Walter M. Miller
By death the moon was gathered in Long ago, ah long ago; Yet still the silver corpse must spin And with another's light must glow. Her frozen mountains must forget Their primal hot volcanic breath, Doomed to revolve for ages yet, Void amphitheatres of death. And all about the cosmic sky, The black that lies beyond our blue, Dead stars innumerable lie, And stars of red and angry hue Not dead but doomed to die.
Why don't we sit down and discuss this?' e‰ibhear offered. 'What's there to discuss?' Rhi demanded, flinging her arms in the air. 'I'm doomed! We're all doomed! What's there to talk about?' 'Well, to start... do you want biscuits with the tea I put out?' Rhi sniffed, nodded. 'Biscuits would be nice.' 'Excellent.' 'Wait, wait.' Izzy gawked at them. 'Biscuits? Tea? What are you two talking about?' e‰ibhear and Rhi smiled at each other before e‰ibhear explained, 'We can't sit around discussing pure evil without tea and biscuits, Iz. It's just not done.
