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.
Best Quotes about Choice
When you can't have what you choose, you just choose what you have.
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
Look for your choices, pick the best one, then go with it.
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.
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.
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.
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
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
Before my accidents, there were ten thousands things I could do. I could spend the rest of my life dwelling on the things that I had lost, but instead I chose to focus on the nine thousand I still had left.
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 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
I am not a sound bite person. I prefer to run at the mouth.
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.
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
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.
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?
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.
No one ever went broke by saying no too often.
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.
You can choose to be lazy or you can choose to be ambitious. Stop to think about it again. Don't you do your own choosing?
Kohe, J. Martin
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.
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 we acknowledge that all of life is sacred and that each act is an act of choice and therefore sacred, then life is a sacred dance lived consciously each moment. When we live at this level, we participate in the creation of a better world. [The Circle is Sacred]
Lee, Scout Cloud
We are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
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.
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.
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
We do pretty much whatever we want to.
Choose your love, Love your choice.
Monson, Thomas S.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
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.
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
You are either part of the solution or part of the problem.
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.
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?
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.
A human being is a deciding being.
Frankl, Viktor E.
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
