Best Quotes about Choice
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
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.
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.
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.
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
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.
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 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.
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.
Bright lights cast dark shadows when shone from only one direction.
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
When you can't have what you choose, you just choose what you 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.
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.
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.
You cannot be anything if you want to be everything.
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
Every choice you make has an end result.
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
Between two evils, choose neither; between two goods, choose both.
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
Let us choose to believe something good can happen.
Kohe, J. Martin
I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: Therefore choose life. [Deuteronomy 30:19]
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.
You can't choose up sides on a round world.
Most of life is choices, and the rest is pure dumb luck.
Anything inside that immobilizes me, gets in my way, keeps me from my goals, is all mine.
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 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.
We are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different.
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
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.
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
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.
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
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...
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.
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 and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices.
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.
Seeing the light is a choice, not seeing the light is no choice.
The highest order of mind is accused of folly, as well as the lowest. Nothing is thoroughly approved but mediocrity. The majority has established this, and it fixes its fangs on whatever gets beyond it either way.
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.
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
It's so hard when I have to, And so easy when I want to.
Barnes, Sondra Anice
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
