Best Quotes about Choice
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
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.
A human being is a deciding being.
Frankl, Viktor E.
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.
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.
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.
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
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.
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 can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
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
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
We are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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
I have discovered that we may be in some degree whatever character we choose. Besides, practice forms a man to anything.
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.
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.
It's so hard when I have to, And so easy when I want to.
Barnes, Sondra Anice
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I am not a sound bite person. I prefer to run at the mouth.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: Therefore choose life. [Deuteronomy 30:19]
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
Anything inside that immobilizes me, gets in my way, keeps me from my goals, is all mine.
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 do what you want to do. You can be what you want to be.
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.
Look for your choices, pick the best one, then go with it.
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.
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
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.
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
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.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
We do pretty much whatever we want to.
Refuse the evil, and choose the good. [Isaiah 7:15]
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
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
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.
Every choice you make has an end result.
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
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
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.
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
