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.
Best Quotes about Choice
It is always your next move.
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.
You are the person who has to decide. Whether you'll do it or toss it aside; You are the person who makes up your mind. Whether you'll lead or will linger behind. Whether you'll try for the goal that's afar. Or just be contented to stay where you are.
Guest, Edgar A.
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.
It is not something I must do but something I want to do
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.
The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
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.
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.
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
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 your own convictions which compels you; that is, choice compels choice.
Every choice you make has an end result.
Anything inside that immobilizes me, gets in my way, keeps me from my goals, is all mine.
We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
Seeing the light is a choice, not seeing the light is no choice.
Watch what you choose to do. For instance, someone might want you to smoke. Never forget that I told you -- don't do it. Say no. That can of beer that somebody wants you to try, don't do it. Don't you ever do it. That drug that someone might want you to use, don't touch it. Stay away from it. It can destroy you.
Hinckley, Gordon B.
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.
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
I have discovered that we may be in some degree whatever character we choose. Besides, practice forms a man to anything.
Choose your love, Love your choice.
Monson, Thomas S.
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.
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.
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.
Refuse the evil, and choose the good. [Isaiah 7:15]
You can do what you want to do. You can be what you want to be.
You are either part of the solution or part of the problem.
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different.
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.
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.
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
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.
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
You can lay down and die, or you can get up and fight, but that's it -- there's no turning back.
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.
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
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 can't choose up sides on a round world.
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 must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
Between two evils, choose neither; between two goods, choose both.
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.
A human being is a deciding being.
Frankl, Viktor E.
No one ever went broke by saying no too often.
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.
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
