What You Run From, You Run Into

So says Seymore Berkhoff in Season 4, Episode 3 of “Nikita”.  Now I am sure that every once in a while, a TV script writer comes up with a great aphorism all on their own, but three+ seasons in of trite, simplistic dialogue (it’s still fun to watch), this was unexpected.  I was struck by the phrase, so I investigated.  My first guess was that it was lifted from some philosophical or religious text, but if it was, I couldn’t find it.  I was only able to find the quote in two places, both long before the episode aired: here, featuring this man, and here.  The photo blog is the earliest incidence of the phrase I could find.  I’d love to know if it started there, and how it got to the celebrity therapist turned rock star and then to the script of Nikita.
