Best Quotes about Choice
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.
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.
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different.
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.
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
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.
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.
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.
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
You are either part of the solution or part of the problem.
I am not a sound bite person. I prefer to run at the mouth.
Choose your love, Love your choice.
Monson, Thomas S.
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.
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
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.
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
You cannot be anything if you want to be everything.
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.
I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.
A Course In Miracles
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.
When you can't have what you choose, you just choose what you have.
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
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.
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.
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.
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
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...
Seeing the light is a choice, not seeing the light is no choice.
Most of life is choices, and the rest is pure dumb luck.
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.
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
Choice strengthens all.
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.
We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
It is always your next move.
It's so hard when I have to, And so easy when I want to.
Barnes, Sondra Anice
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.
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
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.
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
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
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
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.
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.
We do pretty much whatever we want to.
