Best Quotes about Choice
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
Let us choose to believe something good can happen.
Kohe, J. Martin
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.
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.
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
You can do what you want to do. You can be what you want to be.
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.
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.
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
Look for your choices, pick the best one, then go with it.
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
Seeing the light is a choice, not seeing the light is no choice.
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.
No one ever went broke by saying no too often.
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
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
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.
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.
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
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.
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
We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
You are either part of the solution or part of the problem.
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.
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 is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
When you can't have what you choose, you just choose what you have.
Most of life is choices, and the rest is pure dumb luck.
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.
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.
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.
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
We are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
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?
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
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.
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.
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.
Every choice you make has an end result.
Choice strengthens all.
Bright lights cast dark shadows when shone from only one direction.
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
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
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.
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
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.
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.
