The Game of Life . . . !

The following quotation was immortalized in the movie Forrest Gump when Forrest (played by Tom Hanks) said “Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”  This statement is generally believed to mean that life is full of surprises and that you never know what will happen next.  Well, in a similar vein, but with a totally different meaning/connotation, I ran across another quotation that posits that we do in fact know what will happen next (the question remains the immediacy with which it might happen).  Just something to ponder this quiet Sunday morning.

“The game of life is a game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later with astounding accuracy.” (Florence Scovel Shinn)
