Tracy Flick speaks

Yes, from Alexander Payne's 1999 movie Election. Flick is the driven high-schooler who wants to be student-body president. The election is supposed to be hers:

"None of this would have happened if Mr. McAllister hadn't meddled the way he did. He should have just accepted things as they are instead of trying to interfere with destiny. You see, you can't interfere with destiny. That's why it's destiny. And if you try to interfere, the same thing's going to happen anyway, and you'll just suffer."
Life imitates art?
