Life is like a box of chocolates - this is one of Forrest Gump's famous lines in the movie. As long as I can remember, I happened to watched this very touching movie during my high school years and yet some lessons from the film are still unforgettable. I always keep into my reflection, Life is like a box of chocolates. All the things that happens in life comes with different tastes and different shapes. Problems are everywhere, surprises come around all of a sudden but all that is, it is included in the package. Have you had similar encounter like such?! Have you ever treated life as that of Forrest Gump that it is but the same as a box of chocolates?

That line has always confused me to be honest because usually when you get a box of chocolates there is a piece of paper inside with a photo of all the chocolates on and what they are so if you look at that then you do know what you are gonna get lol. It is true about life though. It is full of surprises and these are both good and bad.

This is my favorite saying from the movie. I say it all the time, because it is so true. Ya just never know what you are gonna get in life, just think of all the flavors in a box of chocolate...

maybe that's why we call it destiny.everything we dreaming is just what we hope to get,but most of them cannot be realized......so we should have a dream,also should face to the truth. I like Forrest Gump very much.of course,I've seen it many many times.....Life is like a box of chocolate is my favorite line in this movie.

Well that is the only way to treat life. I have learned that no matter how we plan, we just can't make sure that we get the piece of chocolate that we want. Control in our life is an illusion and we are best off to learn that and learn to roll with the punches.
