Best Quotes about Choice
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
It's so hard when I have to, And so easy when I want to.
Barnes, Sondra Anice
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.
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
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
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.
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.
Look for your choices, pick the best one, then go with it.
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
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.
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
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 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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
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.
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.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing 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.
It is your own convictions which compels you; that is, choice compels choice.
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...
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.
I have discovered that we may be in some degree whatever character we choose. Besides, practice forms a man to anything.
Let us choose to believe something good can happen.
Kohe, J. Martin
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
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
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 always your next move.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
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.
I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.
A Course In Miracles
It is not something I must do but something I want to do
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
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.
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
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.
If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different.
The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
