Once in a while, from all that crap that Hollywood dishes out, a rare gem, a fine dialogue does surface. This is from the movie "The Last Samurai".
Katsumoto: You believe a man can change his destiny ?
Algren: I think a man does what he can, until his destiny is revealed.
Katsumoto is played by Ken Watanabae and Algren is played by Tom Cruise, who dish out good performance.
I somehow seem to think that the oriental (Chinese, Japanese) philosophy has lots of connection with Hinduism. After all, they are very much based on Buddhism, which in turn did take off from Hinduism. I think a leisure time reading is in the anvil ;-)
