Change is Nature

From Ratatouille (2007):

Django: [showing the exterminator shop to Remy with the dead rats in the window] Take a good long look, Remy. This is what happens when a rat gets a little too uncomfortable around humans. The world we live in belongs to the enemy, we must live carefully. We look out for our own kind, Remy. When all is said and done, we're all we've got. 
Remy: [Django starts to walk away] No. 
Django: What? 
Remy: No. Dad I don't believe it. You're telling me that the future is - can only be more of *this*? 
Django: This is the way things are. You can't change nature. 
Remy: Change is nature, Dad. The part that we can influence. And it starts when we decide. 
Django: [Remy turns to leave] Where are you going?
Remy: With luck, forward.
