Forrest: "Why are you dying, Mama?"
Mrs. Gump: "It's my time. It's just my time. Oh, now, don't you be afraid, sweetheart. Death is just a part of life. Something we're all destined to do. I didn't know it, but I was dentined to be your mama. I did the best I could."
Forrest: "You did good, Mama."
Mrs. Gump: "Well, I happen to believe you make your own destiny. You have to do the best with what God gave you."
Forrest: "What's my destiny, Mama?"
Mrs. Gump: "You're going to have to figure that out for yourself. Life is a box of chocolates, Forrest. You never know what you're going to get."
Forrest: "Mama always had a way of explaining things so I could understand them."
Mrs. Gump: "I will miss you, Forrest."
Forrest: "She had got the cancer and died on a Tuesday. I bought her a new hat with little flowers on it. And that's all I have to say about that."
