Best Quotes about Choice
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 Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
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.
Every person, all the events of your life are there because you have drawn them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you.
Man is made or unmade by himself. By the right choice he ascends. As a being of power, intelligence, and love, and the lord of his own thoughts, he holds the key to every situation.
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
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.
You have the power to think what you want. No matter what the circumstance.
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
You cannot be anything if you want to be everything.
You can lay down and die, or you can get up and fight, but that's it -- there's no turning back.
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
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
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.
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.
Most of life is choices, and the rest is pure dumb luck.
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.
It is not something I must do but something I want to do
Bright lights cast dark shadows when shone from only one direction.
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.
We are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
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.
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
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
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.
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.
Anything inside that immobilizes me, gets in my way, keeps me from my goals, is all mine.
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.
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.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
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.
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.
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
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.
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.
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
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.
Choose your love, Love your choice.
Monson, Thomas S.
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.
Any person who recognizes this greatest power... the power to choose. Begins to realize that he is the one that is doing the choosing and that friends, although they mean well, cannot do his choosing for him, nor can his relatives. Consequently, he develops real self-confidence based upon his own ability, upon his own action, and upon his own initiative.
Kohe, J. Martin
Choice strengthens all.
