Best Quotes about Choice
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.
Anything inside that immobilizes me, gets in my way, keeps me from my goals, is all mine.
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.
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.
Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
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.
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 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.
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.
I have discovered that we may be in some degree whatever character we choose. Besides, practice forms a man to anything.
Inhabit ourselves that we may indeed do what we want to do.
Richards, Mary Caroline
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.
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
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
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.
Look for your choices, pick the best one, then go with 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
If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different.
You can do what you want to do. You can be what you want to be.
You can't choose up sides on a round world.
I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: Therefore choose life. [Deuteronomy 30:19]
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...
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 can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
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 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.
A human being is a deciding being.
Frankl, Viktor E.
You must give up the way it is... to have it the way you want it
You are either part of the solution or part of the problem.
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.
I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.
A Course In Miracles
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.
It's so hard when I have to, And so easy when I want to.
Barnes, Sondra Anice
Of all earthly creatures, humans alone have the power to choose.
When you can't have what you choose, you just choose what you have.
Every choice you make has an end result.
It is your own convictions which compels you; that is, choice compels choice.
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.
Most of life is choices, and the rest is pure dumb luck.
Everything can be taken away from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedom -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.
Frankl, Viktor E.
You are the person who has to decide. Whether you'll do it or toss it aside; You are the person who makes up your mind. Whether you'll lead or will linger behind. Whether you'll try for the goal that's afar. Or just be contented to stay where you are.
Guest, Edgar A.
The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
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.
You can lay down and die, or you can get up and fight, but that's it -- there's no turning back.
I am not a sound bite person. I prefer to run at the mouth.
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
Even as a tortoise draws in its limbs, the wise can draw in their senses at will.
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
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.
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?
