Why not look up the original Greek quote? Or maybe: L┼źde tuam personam. Play your character...assuming ludo ludere takes the accusative I can't remember

Something that helps me feel empowered is to see myself as both actor and playwright. That I am following divine will when I pursue bliss and love. I know this doesn't help your question, but wanted to share.

[Amor fati.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amor_fati) Probably more of "Live the part you are given", rather than "Play the part you are given."

Thank you. I know of that one--love of fate--but it doesn't quite capture the sentiment that really speaks to me of being assigned a role to play
