Best Quotes about Choice
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.
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
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.
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 as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
I have discovered that we may be in some degree whatever character we choose. Besides, practice forms a man to anything.
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.
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
You can lay down and die, or you can get up and fight, but that's it -- there's no turning back.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
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.
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.
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.
If you want to sing out, sing out, and if you want to be free, be free,cause there's a million ways to be, you know that there are...
Every choice you make has an end result.
We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
Choice strengthens all.
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
Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven't tried before.
The perfect way is without difficulty, for it avoids picking and choosing. Only when you stop liking and disliking will all be clearly understood. Be not concerned with right or wrong, for the conflict between right and wrong is the sickness of the mind.
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: Therefore choose life. [Deuteronomy 30:19]
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.
We do pretty much whatever we want to.
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
Choose your love, Love your choice.
Monson, Thomas S.
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
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
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.
Between two evils, choose neither; between two goods, choose both.
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
Bright lights cast dark shadows when shone from only one direction.
No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it.
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.
The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices.
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
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
No one ever went broke by saying no too often.
It is your own convictions which compels you; that is, choice compels choice.
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?
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
