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.
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
We do pretty much whatever we want to.
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
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
The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
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 have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: Therefore choose life. [Deuteronomy 30:19]
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
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.
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
You have the power to think what you want. No matter what the circumstance.
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
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.
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
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
Refuse the evil, and choose the good. [Isaiah 7:15]
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
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
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.
If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different.
It is always your next move.
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.
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
You can choose to be lazy or you can choose to be ambitious. Stop to think about it again. Don't you do your own choosing?
Kohe, J. Martin
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
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
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.
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.
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.
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.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
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.
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.
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.
Bright lights cast dark shadows when shone from only one direction.
We are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
A human being is a deciding being.
Frankl, Viktor E.
I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.
A Course In Miracles
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.
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
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.
I have discovered that we may be in some degree whatever character we choose. Besides, practice forms a man to anything.
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.
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.
