Making your own destiny

I watched Forrest Gump for tenth time with my DH on Sunday. It is one of our favourite movies. There are so many beautiful lines that warm my heart. Always.

This is my favourite dialogue:

Well, I happen to believe you make your own destiny. You have to do the best what God gave you.

What's my destiny, Mama? 

You're gonna have to figure that out for yourself. Life's a box of chocolates, Forrest. You never know what you're gonna get. 


  1. As often as we've seen the movie (and we love it, too!), the passage you've shared here still rings fresh -- thanks for highlighting ...

  2. I love that movie too - I can watch it over and over and never get tired of it.
