Kung Fu Panda (2008)
Randall Duk Kim: Oogway
Oogway : My friend, the panda will never fulfill his destiny, nor you yours, until you let go of the illusion of control.
Shifu : Illusion?
Oogway : Yes.
[points at peach tree]
Oogway : Look at this tree, Shifu. I cannot make it blossom when it suits me, nor make it bear fruit before its time.
Shifu : But there are things we *can* control.
[kicks the tree so that peaches fall]
Shifu : I can control when the fruit will fall!
[he slices a peach and throws the pit to the ground]
Shifu : I can control where to plant the seed! That is no illusion, Master!
Oogway : Ah, yes. But no matter what you do, that seed will grow to be a peach tree. You may wish for an apple or an orange, but you will get a peach.
Shifu : But a peach cannot defeat Tai Lung!
Oogway : [folding dirt over the peach pit] Maybe it *can*, if you are willing to guide it, to nurture it. To believe in it.
Shifu : But how? How? I need your help, master!
Oogway : No, you just need to believe. Promise me, Shifu. Promise me you will believe.
Shifu : I... I will try.
Oogway : One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it.
Oogway : There are no accidents.
Oogway : [walking towards Po] Ah! I see that you have found the Sacred Peach Tree of Heavenly Wisdom!
Po : [Po turns around with a lot of peaches stuffed in his mouth] Is that what this is? I'm so sorry! I just thought it was a regular peach tree!
Oogway : I understand. You eat when you are upset.
Po : Upset? I'm not upset. Why, what makes you think I'm upset?
Oogway : So why *are* you upset?
Po : [sighs] I probably sucked more today than anybody in the history of kung fu. In the history of China. In the history of sucking!
Po : [dazed] What are you pointing at? Oh! Okay. Sorry, I just wanted to see who the Dragon Warrior was.
Oogway : How interesting.
Tigress : Master, are you pointing at... me?
Oogway : Him.
Po : Who?
[Moves around, Oogway's finger follows him]
Oogway : You.
Po : What?
Oogway : [Raising Po's arm with his stick] The universe has brought us the Dragon Warrior!
Po : What?
Shifu : WHAT?
Mr. Ping : WHAT?
Oogway : Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, but Today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.
