"Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get"
I'm either missing something or I probably just don't understand the whole quote. The reason being is that I'm quite sure I know what I'm going to get if I open a box of chocolates. Hint: 'Box of chocolates' usually indicates if you open the box, you'll find chocolates. Anyways, I open the box and I find chocolates. Now the chocolates have different flavours but they all look the same as they have the chocolaty brown outer coating. So what next, I just choose one at random? No, I just read the little leaflet that comes with the box telling me all the flavours of the chocolates presented to me. If there is no leaflet, I chop up one of the chocolates in half and see whether it is to my liking or not. Therefore the quote doesn't make sense to me as I do know what I'm going to get and I do know what flavour I'd be getting too.
