I am on a big astronomy reading kick and just started reading “Extraterrestial,” by Professor Avi Loeb of Harvard University.  The book covers the Oamuamua object that flew through our solar system recently.  Fascinating stuff.  Anyway, on page 13 he writes:

“It is commonly thought that life is a collection of the places you visit. But this is an illusion. Life is a collection of events, and these are the results of choices, only some of which are ours to make.”
