Choice vs Destiny
If you believe it is a world of choice, you regard your life as a product of your own decisions. If you believe in destiny, you suspect there are greater forces defining your life’s story. Even if we are each part of some great master plan, our unique journey has more personal meaning when we choose it for ourselves. You make many choices every day. Whenever possible, choose the life you want.
Here's a diversity of movie quotes about whether our lives are constructed through our choices or revealed over time.
"I only know what fate there is in retreat."
"There's no such thing as chance."
"Actions create consequences which produce new worlds."
"Every person can be a force for good, free to forge his own destiny."
“We can’t choose where we come from but we can choose where we go from there.”
“Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others – past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.”
“Our lives and our choices, like quantum trajectories, are understood moment-to-moment. At each point of intersection, each encounter, suggests a new potential direction.”
“Some say our destiny is tied to the land, as much a part of us as we are part of it. Others say fate is woven together like a cloth, so that one’s destiny intertwines with many others. It’s the one thing we search for, or fight to change. Some never find it. But there are some who are led.”
“Our fate lives within us. You only have to be breathing to see it.”
“Go where the day takes you.”
