Best Quotes about Choice
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
As simple as it sounds, we all must try to be the best person we can: by making the best choices, by making the most of the talents we've been given.
Retton, Mary Lou
A human being is a deciding being.
Frankl, Viktor E.
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.
Choose your love, Love your choice.
Monson, Thomas S.
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
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.
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.
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.
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.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
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.
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
When we acknowledge that all of life is sacred and that each act is an act of choice and therefore sacred, then life is a sacred dance lived consciously each moment. When we live at this level, we participate in the creation of a better world. [The Circle is Sacred]
Lee, Scout Cloud
He who chooses the beginning of a road chooses the place it leads to. It is the means that determine the end.
Fosdick, Harry Emerson
Refuse the evil, and choose the good. [Isaiah 7:15]
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
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
It is your own convictions which compels you; that is, choice compels choice.
To every man there openeth A way, and ways, and a way. And the high soul climbs the high way, And the low soul gropes the low: And in between, on the misty flats, The rest drift to and fro. But to every man there openeth A high way and a low, And every man decideth. The way his soul shall go.
Choice strengthens all.
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.
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
It is not something I must do but something I want to do
I have discovered that we may be in some degree whatever character we choose. Besides, practice forms a man to anything.
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
The highest order of mind is accused of folly, as well as the lowest. Nothing is thoroughly approved but mediocrity. The majority has established this, and it fixes its fangs on whatever gets beyond it either way.
Our generation, like the one before us, must choose. Without the threat of the Cold War, without the pain of economic ruin, without the fresh memory of World War II's slaughter, it is tempting to pursue our private agendas -- to simply sit back and let history unfold. We must resist the temptation.
I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.
A Course In Miracles
I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: Therefore choose life. [Deuteronomy 30:19]
We are the only beings on the planet who lead such rich internal lives that it's not the events that matter most to us, but rather, it's how we interpret those events that will determine how we think about ourselves and how we will act in the future.
Of all earthly creatures, humans alone have the power to choose.
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.
I am not a sound bite person. I prefer to run at the mouth.
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
If you want to sing out, sing out, and if you want to be free, be free,cause there's a million ways to be, you know that there are...
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
You don't have to buy from anyone. You don't have to work at any particular job. You don't have to participate in any given relationship. You can choose
The path of least resistance and least trouble is a mental rut already made. It requires troublesome work to undertake the alternation of old beliefs. Self-conceit often regards it as a sign of weakness to admit that a belief to which we have once committed ourselves is wrong. We get so identified with an idea that it is literally a pet notion and we rise to its defense and stop our eyes and ears to anything different.
Anything inside that immobilizes me, gets in my way, keeps me from my goals, is all mine.
You can't choose up sides on a round world.
Once in a while it really hits people that they don't have to experience the world in the way they have been told to.
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.
Let us choose to believe something good can happen.
Kohe, J. Martin
The first thing I do in the morning is to make my bed and while I am making up my bed I am making up my mind as to what kind of a day I am going to have.
There is no shame in finding someone else to be attractive, or good company. Even if they don't like you, there is still no shame. If you happen to be fond of someone, and they're not fond of you, it's OK.. You don't have to wait and see if they'll love you back. You can announce it.. Joy in life comes from expressing ourselves, in taking risks and jumping in. Everyone is not going to like you. But you can like who you like.
You cannot be anything if you want to be everything.
