every bullet has its billet

Every bullet has its billet (every bullet has its appropriate target) ≈ от судьбы не уйдешь; чему быть, того не миновать; у всякого своя планида

Example 1: He never received one wound. So true is the odd saying of King William (III), that "every bullet has its billet." (The Oxford Dictionary of Proverbs )

Example 2: It is common superstition among soldiers, that no balls will kill them unless their names are written on them. The old proverb says, "Every bullet has its billet."
