“Life is like a box of chocolates, the best ones are half-eaten”

The movie Forrest Gump (1994) contained the famous line:

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

There have been many variations on this line. “Life is like a box of chocolates, the best ones are half-eaten” has been cited in print since at least 2000.


Wikiquote: Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump is a 1994 film starring Tom Hanks 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.

Life is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you’re going to get. ~ Forrest Gump in “Forrest Gump” (1994)

If life is like a box of chocolates, then its time for me to buy another box, I seemed to have already devoured all the good ones!

CHOCISM
A simile in which life, or an aspect of life, is compared to a box of chocolates. The best known chocism comes from the 1994 movie Forrest Gump, which states: “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get”. Since then, journalists, commentators and bloggers have all come up with interesting and amusing variations of their own:

. The pessimistic: “Life is like a box of chocolates, the best ones are half-eaten”; or: “Life is like a box of chocolates, I must have grabbed the wrong damn box”.
. The anti-romantic: “Men are like chocolates, you never know when you’re going to get a nut”.

A very nice quote. I will share this with my friends. It has a deeper meaning that everyone can relate to.
