Best Quotes about Choice
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
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.
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
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
Most of life is choices, and the rest is pure dumb luck.
Look for your choices, pick the best one, then go with it.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
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.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
It is always your next move.
A human being is a deciding being.
Frankl, Viktor E.
You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices.
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
You can lay down and die, or you can get up and fight, but that's it -- there's no turning back.
I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.
A Course In Miracles
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?
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's so hard when I have to, And so easy when I want to.
Barnes, Sondra Anice
If this life be not a real fight, in which something is eternally gained... it is no better than a game of private theatricals from which one may withdraw at will.
When you can't have what you choose, you just choose what you have.
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
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
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.
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.
We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
You are everything that is, your thoughts, your life, your dreams come true. You are everything you choose to be. You are as unlimited as the endless universe.
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.
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
If I were going to convert to any religion I would probably choose Catholicism because it at least has female saints and the Virgin Mary.
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.
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
Thus we see that the all important thing is not killing or giving life, drinking or not drinking, living in the town or the country, being unlucky or lucky, winning or losing. It is how we win, how we lose, how we live or die, finally, how we choose.
Blyth, R. H.
There has never been another you. With no effort on your part you were born to be something very special and set apart. What you are going to do in appreciation of that gift is a decision only you can make.
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.
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.
You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self. Don't turn away from possible futures before you're certain you don't have anything to learn from them. You're always free to change your mind and choose a different future, or a different past.
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
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.
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.
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.
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.
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
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.
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
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.
Seeing the light is a choice, not seeing the light is no choice.
You can do what you want to do. You can be what you want to be.
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
