Best Quotes about Choice
You cannot be anything if you want to be everything.
The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
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.
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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
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.
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.
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.
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
Of all earthly creatures, humans alone have the power to choose.
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
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.
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.
You can do what you want to do. You can be what you want to be.
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...
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
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.
If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different.
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.
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.
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
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.
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 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
Seeing the light is a choice, not seeing the light is no choice.
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.
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 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.
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
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?
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.
When you can't have what you choose, you just choose what you have.
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
Be careful the environment you choose for it will shape you; be careful the friends you choose for you will become like them.
Stone, W. Clement
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
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.
Every choice you make has an end result.
Choose your love, Love your choice.
Monson, Thomas S.
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
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.
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.
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.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
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.
Kohe, J. Martin
We do pretty much whatever we want to.
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.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
