Best Quotes about Choice
You cannot be anything if you want to be everything.
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
Look for your choices, pick the best one, then go with it.
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
Between two evils, choose neither; between two goods, choose both.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
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.
A human being is a deciding being.
Frankl, Viktor E.
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
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.
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 can lay down and die, or you can get up and fight, but that's it -- there's no turning back.
As simple as it sounds, we all must try to be the best person we can: by making the best choices, by making the most of the talents we've been given.
Retton, Mary Lou
Choice strengthens all.
One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.
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.
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.
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 can't choose up sides on a round world.
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.
You are either part of the solution or part of the problem.
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 like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
You have the power to think what you want. No matter what the circumstance.
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.
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 set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: Therefore choose life. [Deuteronomy 30:19]
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.
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Most of life is choices, and the rest is pure dumb luck.
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
We do pretty much whatever we want to.
It's so hard when I have to, And so easy when I want to.
Barnes, Sondra Anice
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...
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.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
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.
Refuse the evil, and choose the good. [Isaiah 7:15]
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
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.
