One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it

I said "master segue", not Master Oogway



From Kung Fu Panda

He said:
You are too concerned about what was and what will be."There is a saying: yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the "present.""

Also:

Oogway: Look at this tree, Shifu: I cannot make it blossom when it suits me nor make it bear fruit before its time.
Shifu: But there are things we *can* control: I can control when the fruit will fall, I can control where to plant the seed: that is no illusion, Master!
Oogway: Ah, yes. But no matter what you do, that seed will grow to be a peach tree. You may wish for an apple or an orange, but you will get a peach.

Why do I now have a hankering for some chicken chow mein?
