Shakespeare never wrote stuff like this

Hi,

Phrase in latin please:

"The way is chosen, you (we) only have to follow the path."

I encountered the phrase some time ago (in Latin) and it started with "Lecto" and ended with "eatur". There was somewhere an "it", probably a "via", and another word which was near the begining "requu--- ", which as you can see I don't quite recall. The Latin phrase had approx. seven words in it.

Sense: Imagine Shakespeare had written the outline of a play and had disgarded it. (I know preposterous). Another playwrite (or writing group) is asked to use his (their) skills and imagination to finish the task and produce a final article.

This endeavour has to be couched in terms of a journey hence the phrase.

Cheers.

@hottentot,
So you expect someone who is knowledgeable about Latin to show up in this thread with a title like that? Good luck.

@hottentot,
I believe you're asking whether anyone knows this phrase.
I am not familiar with it, but will search around.
