Best Quotes about Choice
Look for your choices, pick the best one, then go with it.
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
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.
Bright lights cast dark shadows when shone from only one direction.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
Most of life is choices, and the rest is pure dumb luck.
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
You are either part of the solution or part of the problem.
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.
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.
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.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
It is always your next move.
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.
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.
A Course In Miracles
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
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
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.
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.
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.
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
You have the power to think what you want. No matter what the circumstance.
The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
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.
Every choice you make has an end result.
You can't choose up sides on a round world.
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
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
When you can't have what you choose, you just choose what you have.
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
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.
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.
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
Refuse the evil, and choose the good. [Isaiah 7:15]
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
No one ever went broke by saying no too often.
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
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
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
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.
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.
