“Life is like a box of chocolates. I don’t have a box of chocolates”

"My momma always said, ‘Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get’” is a famous line from the movie Forrest Gump (1994). “My boyfriend is like a box of chocolates , I don’t have a box of chocolates” was posted on Twitter by “Atu already knows” on December 4, 2011. “Life is like a box of chocolates… i don’t have a box of chocolates”—another way of saying, “I don’t have a life”—was posted on Twitter by Shelb on January 4, 2012.

“Life is like a box of chocolates in that I don’t have a box of chocolates” has been printed on an ecard.


Wikiquote: Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump is a 1994 film about a mentally challenged man’s epic journey through life, meeting historical figures, influencing popular culture, and experiencing first-hand historical incidents while largely unaware of their significance.
Directed by: Robert Zemeckis. Written by Eric Roth, based on the novel by Winston Groom.

My momma always said, “Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
