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.
Best Quotes about Choice
You have the power to think what you want. No matter what the circumstance.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
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
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.
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.
We are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Anything inside that immobilizes me, gets in my way, keeps me from my goals, is all mine.
Look for your choices, pick the best one, then go with it.
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
Every choice you make has an end result.
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.
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.
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
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.
I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.
A Course In Miracles
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
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?
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.
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...
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.
Between two evils, choose neither; between two goods, choose both.
It is not something I must do but something I want to do
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.
If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different.
We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You can do what you want to do. You can be what you want to be.
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
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.
I am not a sound bite person. I prefer to run at the mouth.
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 can't choose up sides on a round world.
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.
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.
I have discovered that we may be in some degree whatever character we choose. Besides, practice forms a man to anything.
There is an election going on all the time... the Lord votes for you and Satan votes against you, and you must cast the deciding vote.
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
