    satisfy me of my fate

    Hi, dear Englishologists. Could anybody explain what the underlined expression means?

    "I dared not make the effort which was to satisfy me of my fate — and yet there was something at my heart which whispered me it was sure."
    I guess it means "to reveal my destiny" or something like this. (http://poestories.com/read/premature)

    Re: satisfy me of my fate

    Yup! I think you understand it perfectly.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
