Need translation help

Postby curiousgeorge » Mon Jul 18, 2011 7:50 pm

I'm trying to translate a quote from Achilles "I chose nothing. I was born and this is what I am."

Three different translation sites get three different results. :?

Thanks,
Curious George

Just my attempt. I'm sure there can be a variety of translations of this sentence from the movie
Troy (2004).

οὐδὲν εἱλόμην· πεφυκὼς οὗτός εἰμι.
Nate.
