καὶ ὁ Πύρρος ἀπεκρίνατο, ‘τὸ μὲν εἱμαρμένον, ὦ Λεοννάτε, διαφυγεῖν ἀδύνατον: χαίρων δὲ οὔτε οὗτος οὔτ᾽ ἄλλος τις Ἰταλῶν εἰς χεῖρας ἡμῖν σύνεισιν.’
To him Pyrrhus made reply: ‘What is fated o Leonnatus, it is impossible to escape; but with impunity neither he nor any other Italian shall come to close quarters with me.’

Perhaps a modern or medieval adaptation of Philemon's (comic poet, 4th cent. BCE) sentiment in frag. 115.3f:  τὸ πεπρωμένον γὰρ οὐ μόνον βροτοῖς / ἄφευκτόν ἐστιν, ἀλλὰ καὶ τὸν οὐρανόν [ἔχουσι], "fate is unavoidable not only for mortals, but also for those who hold the heavens."  Certainly the same sentiment is, as you suggest, in Plutarch, Pyrrhus 16.14.
