"Life is like a box of chocolates...You never know what you're going to get" says the main character Forrest in the beginning of the movie.

Forrest Gump is one of these people that make one think about the meaning of life. Which in real life, most people must earn their achievements by doing so they will become successful in life. Even know Forrest Gump doesn’t have advanced knowledge, but he has emotional intelligence. He doesn’t get angry or sad very easily and he can control himself when he has to. He motivates himself to do many things like running, playing football, or joining Vietnam war, so I think that he have a high emotional intelligence in most situations.
I think emotional intelligence is not important then...
