This is a line from The Iron Giant. He says “I am not a gun.” after repeatedly being accused of being a horrible, destructive things when he is not.
A declaration to those that try to bring me down that I am not a bad person, and a reminder to myself that living up to my own expectations and beliefs (as opposed to those of others) doesn’t make me a bad person either.
You are who you choose to be.
