You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went. You could swear, curse the fates, but when it comes to the end, you have to let go.
You believe you are not a worthy champion because the wizards did not choose you. But Fate does not make mistakes.[to Teth Adam]
Fate has a way of circling back on a man, and taking him by surprise. A man sees things differently at different times in his life.
You cannot leave everything to fate, boy. She’s got a lot to do. Sometimes you must give her a hand.[to Henry]
There is a storm on the horizon. A time of hardship and pain. This battle has been won, but the war against the machines rages on. Skynet’s global network remains strong. But we will not quit until all of it is destroyed. This is John Connor. There is no fate but what we make.
The need to feel secure. It’s a slippery slope. Fate is a placebo. The only life path, the one behind you. If, in the brief time we’re all given, you can’t accept this, well, maybe you’re not one of the few. Maybe you’re just like me. One of the many.
The future has not been written. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves. I wish I could believe that. My name is John Connor. They tried to murder me before I was born. When I was 13, they tried again. Machines from the future. Terminators. All my life my mother told me the storm was coming – Judgment Day, the beginning of a war between man and machines. Three billion lives were vanished in an instant. And I would lead what was left of the human race to ultimate victory. It hasn’t happened, no bombs fell, computers didn’t take control. We stopped Judgment Day. I should feel safe. But I don’t. So I live off the grid, no phone, no address. No one and nothing can find me. I’ve erased all connections to the past. But as hard as I try, I can’t erase my dreams. My nightmares.
