    Default what is the meaning of "course of events"?

    What is the meaning of "course of events"?

    Does it have the same meaning as "the results of the events"?

    I'd like to write "the results of the events show that fame depends on luck." Instead of writing "the results of the events", is there any way to put it nicer?

    Thank you!

    Hi,
    Course of events means "the way things happen". it doesn't mean the result of events. course means the road or route, so here it means, the way in which something happens.

    instead of 'results of the events' you can say, ' outcome shows that'.
    outcome=result of an event
