Best Quotes about Choice
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?
No one ever went broke by saying no too often.
You can do what you want to do. You can be what you want to be.
You cannot be anything if you want to be everything.
You can lay down and die, or you can get up and fight, but that's it -- there's no turning back.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
It is your own convictions which compels you; that is, choice compels choice.
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.
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
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
When you can't have what you choose, you just choose what you have.
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
You are either part of the solution or part of the problem.
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
Most of life is choices, and the rest is pure dumb luck.
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.
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...
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
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.
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
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
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want 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
Every choice you make has an end result.
You can't choose up sides on a round world.
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.
Thus we see that the all important thing is not killing or giving life, drinking or not drinking, living in the town or the country, being unlucky or lucky, winning or losing. It is how we win, how we lose, how we live or die, finally, how we choose.
Blyth, R. H.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
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.
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.
Bright lights cast dark shadows when shone from only one direction.
Choose your love, Love your choice.
Monson, Thomas S.
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
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.
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
We do pretty much whatever we want to.
We are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Seeing the light is a choice, not seeing the light is no choice.
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.
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.
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.
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.
