    Hello,

    "Everything happens for a reason": omnia aliquam ob causam fiunt.

    "What goes around comes around": omne factum in auctorem revertitur ("every deed comes back to its doer") or quae seminaverit homo, haec et metet ("A man reaps what he sows", a Biblical phrase from Gal. 6:7).

    thank You very much! maybe You can also say how would translate this : 'what goes around comes back around'? with 'back' word:)

    There would be no difference. "What goes around comes (back) around" can't be translated word for word anyway (it wouldn't make any sense in Latin), so you have to express the meaning with different words as I did above.

    For a medieval scholastic sound:

    Quidquid fit fit cum causa.

    Whatever happens, happens with reason.
