I've been thinking about this short scene from the movie Gladiator quite a bit lately.
There are times in life when destiny reveals itself in the lives of individuals. Contrary to popular belief, individuals are free to turn away from destiny, but if they make this choice, the thing they choose over destiny is no longer destiny but something altogether different.
Either way, the choice individuals make when faced with destiny do indeed "echo" in eternity.
Note: I am of the belief that all choices in life echo in eternity, but some obviously echo louder than others.
