Best Quotes about Choice
It's so hard when I have to, And so easy when I want to.
Barnes, Sondra Anice
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
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.
On this narrow planet, we have only the choice between two unknown worlds. One of them tempts us --ah! what a dream, to live in that! --the other stifles us at the first breath.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
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.
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
Choose your love, Love your choice.
Monson, Thomas S.
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
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.
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.
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
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.
Refuse the evil, and choose the good. [Isaiah 7:15]
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
Life is a constant oscillation between the sharp horns of dilemmas.
Mencken, H. L.
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.
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
Choice strengthens all.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different.
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.
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.
Man?s power of choice enables him to think like an angel or a devil, a king or a slave. Whatever he chooses, mind will create and manifest.
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.
Seeing the light is a choice, not seeing the light is no choice.
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
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.
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
I have discovered that we may be in some degree whatever character we choose. Besides, practice forms a man to anything.
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
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
You cannot be anything if you want to be everything.
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.
We do pretty much whatever we want to.
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.
Let us choose to believe something good can happen.
Kohe, J. Martin
No one ever went broke by saying no too often.
Every choice you make has an end result.
It is your own convictions which compels you; that is, choice compels choice.
Look for your choices, pick the best one, then go with it.
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.
I am not a sound bite person. I prefer to run at the mouth.
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
You can lay down and die, or you can get up and fight, but that's it -- there's no turning back.
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
