Best Quotes about Choice
Every choice moves us closer to or farther away from something. Where are your choices taking your life? What do your behaviors demonstrate that you are saying yes or no to in life?
It is the moment of evolutionary truth for the race, and what man does with that moment will be more important than the events of the previous millenium.
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
Anything inside that immobilizes me, gets in my way, keeps me from my goals, is all mine.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
You can do one of two things; just shut up, which is something I don't find easy, or learn an awful lot very fast which is what I tried to do.
Of all earthly creatures, humans alone have the power to choose.
Before my accidents, there were ten thousands things I could do. I could spend the rest of my life dwelling on the things that I had lost, but instead I chose to focus on the nine thousand I still had left.
We stand now where two roads diverge. But unlike the roads in Robert Frost's familiar poem, they are not equally fair. The road we have long been traveling is deceptively easy, a smooth superhighway on which we progress with great speed, but at its end lies disaster. The other fork of the road -- the one less traveled by -- offers our last, our only chance to reach a destination that assures the preservation of the earth.
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
Instead of looking at life as a narrowing funnel, we can see it ever widening to choose the things we want to do, to take the wisdom we've learned and create something.
You can't choose up sides on a round world.
That guy just cut right in front of me. But I'm not going to let it bother me. No. I'm on my way to work and I decided it doesn't matter who wants to cut in front of my lane today. I'm not going to let it bother me one bit. Once I get to work, find myself a parking space, if somebody wants to jump ahead of me and take it, I'm going to let them.
It is not something I must do but something I want to do
I knew that I did not have to buy into society's notion that I had to be handsome and healthy to be happy. I was in charge of my spaceship and it was my up, my down. I could choose to see this situation as a setback or as a starting point. I chose to begin life again.
He that cannot decidedly say, No, when tempted to evil, is on the highway to ruin. He loses the respect even of those who would tempt him, and becomes but the pliant tool and victim of their evil designs.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.
The way to activate the seeds of your creation is by making choices about the results you want to create. When you make a choice, you activate vast human energies and resources, which otherwise go untapped. All too often people fail to focus their choices upon results and therefore their choices are ineffective. If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is compromise.
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
When a defining moment comes along, you can do one of two things. Define the moment, or let the moment define you.
Movie, Tin Cup
We cannot tell what may happen to us in the strange medley of life. But we can decide what happens in us -- how we can take it, what we do with it -- and that is what really counts in the end. How to take the raw stuff of life and make it a thing of worth and beauty -- that is the test of living.
Newton, Joseph Fort
Each person designs his own life, freedom gives him the power to carry out his own designs, and power gives the freedom to interfere with the designs of others.
It is always your next move.
Man?s power of choice enables him to think like an angel or a devil, a king or a slave. Whatever he chooses, mind will create and manifest.
You cannot be anything if you want to be everything.
You can choose to be lazy or you can choose to be ambitious. Stop to think about it again. Don't you do your own choosing?
Kohe, J. Martin
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
In the choice between changing one's mind and proving there's no need to do so, most people get busy on the proof.
Galbraith, John Kenneth
A man either lives life as it happens to him, meets it head-on and licks it, or he turns his back on it and starts to wither away.
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me, seemed insufficient for the day.
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don't think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully.
Be careful the environment you choose for it will shape you; be careful the friends you choose for you will become like them.
Stone, W. Clement
It's so hard when I have to, And so easy when I want to.
Barnes, Sondra Anice
There is an election going on all the time... the Lord votes for you and Satan votes against you, and you must cast the deciding vote.
Bright lights cast dark shadows when shone from only one direction.
It is enough that we set out to mold the motley stuff of life into some form of our own choosing; when we do, the performance is itself the wage.
It is your own convictions which compels you; that is, choice compels choice.
The more equally attractive two alternatives seem, the harder it can be to choose between them -- no matter that, to the same degree, the choice can only matter less.
Paradox, Edward Fredkin's
I have discovered that we may be in some degree whatever character we choose. Besides, practice forms a man to anything.
You see, it's never the environment; it's never the events of our lives, but the meaning we attach to the events -- how we interpret them -- that shapes who we are today and who we'll become tomorrow.
Everything can be taken away from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedom -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.
Frankl, Viktor E.
We are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
The perfect way is without difficulty, for it avoids picking and choosing. Only when you stop liking and disliking will all be clearly understood. Be not concerned with right or wrong, for the conflict between right and wrong is the sickness of the mind.
