Best Quotes about Choice
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
It is your own convictions which compels you; that is, choice compels choice.
Refuse the evil, and choose the good. [Isaiah 7:15]
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.
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
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.
Seeing the light is a choice, not seeing the light is no choice.
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 cannot be anything if you want to be everything.
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.
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.
The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
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.
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
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
Of all earthly creatures, humans alone have the power to choose.
You can lay down and die, or you can get up and fight, but that's it -- there's no turning back.
It is always your next move.
We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
When you can't have what you choose, you just choose what you have.
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
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.
Every choice you make has an end result.
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.
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different.
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Choose your love, Love your choice.
Monson, Thomas S.
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.
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.
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 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.
You are either part of the solution or part of the problem.
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
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
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.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
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.
You have the power to think what you want. No matter what the circumstance.
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
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 not something I must do but something I want to do
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.
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 have discovered that we may be in some degree whatever character we choose. Besides, practice forms a man to anything.
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.
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.
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.
