Best Quotes about Choice
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
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.
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
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
Refuse the evil, and choose the good. [Isaiah 7:15]
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.
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.
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.
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
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.
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 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 are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Bright lights cast dark shadows when shone from only one direction.
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
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
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
You have the power to think what you want. No matter what the circumstance.
No one ever went broke by saying no too often.
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.
I am not a sound bite person. I prefer to run at the mouth.
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.
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
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.
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.
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
On this narrow planet, we have only the choice between two unknown worlds. One of them tempts us --ah! what a dream, to live in that! --the other stifles us at the first breath.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Choice strengthens all.
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.
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.
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.
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
Seeing the light is a choice, not seeing the light is no choice.
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.
A human being is a deciding being.
Frankl, Viktor E.
It is your own convictions which compels you; that is, choice compels choice.
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.
We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
You can't choose up sides on a round world.
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.
Most of life is choices, and the rest is pure dumb luck.
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.
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.
We do pretty much whatever we want to.
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
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.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
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.
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.
