*kismet \KIZ-met; -mit\ (noun) – Destiny; fate.
"You were muttering about kismet, which, as an aside, is probably what Lord Nelson really said to Hardy at Trafalgar. I can’t see the old sea dog saying ‘Kiss me, Hardy,’ can you?" — Patrick Taylor, ‘An Irish Country Doctor’
Kismet comes (via Turkish) from Arabic qismah, "portion, lot."
