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.
Best Quotes about Choice
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.
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.
Choose your love, Love your choice.
Monson, Thomas S.
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.
It is your own convictions which compels you; that is, choice compels choice.
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.
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.
Of all earthly creatures, humans alone have the power to choose.
When you can't have what you choose, you just choose what you have.
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.
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.
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.
A human being is a deciding being.
Frankl, Viktor E.
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.
Choice strengthens all.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
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.
Refuse the evil, and choose the good. [Isaiah 7:15]
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.
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
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.
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.
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
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
I have discovered that we may be in some degree whatever character we choose. Besides, practice forms a man to anything.
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
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 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.
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.
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.
Every choice you make has an end result.
It's so hard when I have to, And so easy when I want to.
Barnes, Sondra Anice
Let us choose to believe something good can happen.
Kohe, J. Martin
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?
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.
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
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
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.
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
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
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.
Bright lights cast dark shadows when shone from only one direction.
Between two evils, choose neither; between two goods, choose both.
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
You can't choose up sides on a round world.
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
