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.
Best Quotes about Choice
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.
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
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.
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
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
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.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
You can't choose up sides on a round world.
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.
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.
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.
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 are either part of the solution or part of the problem.
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.
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.
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
It is always your next move.
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
I am not a sound bite person. I prefer to run at the mouth.
The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
Between two evils, choose neither; between two goods, choose both.
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.
Bright lights cast dark shadows when shone from only one direction.
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.
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
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.
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
Refuse the evil, and choose the good. [Isaiah 7:15]
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.
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
Of all earthly creatures, humans alone have the power to choose.
It is your own convictions which compels you; that is, choice compels choice.
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
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
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
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.
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.
No one ever went broke by saying no too often.
We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
You can do what you want to do. You can be what you want to be.
I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.
A Course In Miracles
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
Every choice you make has an end result.
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
Anything inside that immobilizes me, gets in my way, keeps me from my goals, is all mine.
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
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.
