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.
Best Quotes about Choice
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
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
You have the power to think what you want. No matter what the circumstance.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
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.
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.
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.
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
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.
Choose your love, Love your choice.
Monson, Thomas S.
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.
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.
The first thing I do in the morning is to make my bed and while I am making up my bed I am making up my mind as to what kind of a day I am going to have.
You can do what you want to do. You can be what you want to be.
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.
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
It is always your next move.
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
We do pretty much whatever we want to.
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.
It is not something I must do but something I want to do
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.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
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.
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
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 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 like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
It's so hard when I have to, And so easy when I want to.
Barnes, Sondra Anice
I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.
A Course In Miracles
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.
We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
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 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.
Bright lights cast dark shadows when shone from only one direction.
No one ever went broke by saying no too often.
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
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.
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
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.
