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.
"We are the sum of our choices, as what we do now defines what we will do."
"Infinite decisions mean infinite consequences, for the future is never truly set."
"A man's destiny is often not what it seems."
"Destiny calls to each of us. There is a world behind a world where we all are connected, all part of a great and moving plan."
"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.”
