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.
"Life has its own agenda."
"You can only get to where you're at by way of where you've been."
"Really deep within, there is a destiny. It's just for me to stay on that track and follow it."
"We all have a journey. We plan our future as if we are the captains of our fate. But we're passengers. We go where fate takes us."
"Do you ever feel like your life has turned into something you never intended?"
"Life is a series of choices, none of which are new. The oldest is choosing to be a victim or choosing not to."
"You will get what's coming to you. In ways you can't expect."
"Life can keep unfolding itself to you as long just as you pay attention to it.”
"Our story is already written, and now we shall play our parts. We must. There is no choice."
"Whatever's going to happen to you doesn't just happen by accident."
