Best Quotes about Choice
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
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.
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 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.
We are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
You can do what you want to do. You can be what you want to be.
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.
You have the power to think what you want. No matter what the circumstance.
It's so hard when I have to, And so easy when I want to.
Barnes, Sondra Anice
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
We do pretty much whatever we want to.
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.
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.
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.
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
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.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
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 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.
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.
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
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.
Let us choose to believe something good can happen.
Kohe, J. Martin
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
Choose your love, Love your choice.
Monson, Thomas S.
You can lay down and die, or you can get up and fight, but that's it -- there's no turning back.
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.
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
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.
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.
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 human being is a deciding being.
Frankl, Viktor E.
It is your own convictions which compels you; that is, choice compels choice.
Seeing the light is a choice, not seeing the light is no choice.
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.
I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: Therefore choose life. [Deuteronomy 30:19]
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.
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
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.
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
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
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
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.
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
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.
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.
The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
