Best Quotes about Choice
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 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.
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
Every choice you make has an end result.
No one ever went broke by saying no too often.
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.
We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
Of all earthly creatures, humans alone have the power to choose.
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?
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
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.
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.
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
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
It is not something I must do but something I want to do
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
Refuse the evil, and choose the good. [Isaiah 7:15]
I have discovered that we may be in some degree whatever character we choose. Besides, practice forms a man to anything.
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.
Anything inside that immobilizes me, gets in my way, keeps me from my goals, is all mine.
It is your own convictions which compels you; that is, choice compels choice.
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.
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
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.
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...
We are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
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.
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 don't have to buy from anyone. You don't have to work at any particular job. You don't have to participate in any given relationship. You can choose
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
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 Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
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 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.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
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.
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.
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 single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
You can lay down and die, or you can get up and fight, but that's it -- there's no turning back.
When you can't have what you choose, you just choose what you have.
It is always your next move.
Bright lights cast dark shadows when shone from only one direction.
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
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
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.
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
