Best Quotes about Choice
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.
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.
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.
When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.
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
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
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.
We are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
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
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
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.
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take 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.
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.
It is not something I must do but something I want to do
If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different.
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.
Look for your choices, pick the best one, then go with it.
Of all earthly creatures, humans alone have the power to choose.
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.
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.
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?
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
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 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.
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.
Anything inside that immobilizes me, gets in my way, keeps me from my goals, is all mine.
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.
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.
There has never been another you. With no effort on your part you were born to be something very special and set apart. What you are going to do in appreciation of that gift is a decision only you can make.
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
Diana, Princess of Wales
I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: Therefore choose life. [Deuteronomy 30:19]
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.
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
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.
The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.
When you can't have what you choose, you just choose what you have.
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
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
We do pretty much whatever we want to.
Seeing the light is a choice, not seeing the light is no choice.
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.
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 can't choose up sides on a round world.
