Best Quotes about Choice
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.
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.
It is not something I must do but something I want to do
Of all earthly creatures, humans alone have the power to choose.
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
You have the power to think what you want. No matter what the circumstance.
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.
Between two evils, choose neither; between two goods, choose both.
Choose your love, Love your choice.
Monson, Thomas S.
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.
When a defining moment comes along, you can do one of two things. Define the moment, or let the moment define you.
Movie, Tin Cup
If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
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.
You are everything that is, your thoughts, your life, your dreams come true. You are everything you choose to be. You are as unlimited as the endless universe.
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.
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.
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.
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
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.
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
I am not a sound bite person. I prefer to run at the mouth.
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
I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: Therefore choose life. [Deuteronomy 30:19]
When you can't have what you choose, you just choose what you have.
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
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
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.
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
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
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
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.
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.
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
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.
We are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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
No one ever went broke by saying no too often.
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.
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.
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.
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
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
