James L Hymes
Technological change defines the horizon of our material world as it shapes the limiting conditions of what is possible and what is barely imaginable. It erodesassumptions about the nature of our reality, the “pattern” in which we dwell, and lays open new choices.
Shoshana Zuboff
It’s not because I love you, but because I only love you. If I don’t have you, then I won’t have any other choices.
Joo

Art Farmer
You are lovable, you are loving; your choices about food will reflect that, if you give yourself a chance.
Geneen Roth

Benoit Mandelbrot
This Budget reflects a choice – not an easy choice, but the right choice. And when you think about it, the only choice. The choice to take the responsible, prudent path to fiscal stability, economic growth and opportunity.
George Pataki
That’s how I digest it, ’cause I can press the fast-forward button and I know that I’m gonna have to continue to be an actor, continue to make choices, continue to perform in a show every week.
Viola Davis
There is a common, puritanical way that we look at things where, if it involves sexuality, somehow the women must be compromised. It’s just chauvinistic to deny women their sexuality. It’s about empowering. It comes down to choices. If the choices are available and they’re making that choice, they’re not being exploited.
Amber Heard
Many kids turn to selling drugs. It’s not a good career choice, but they see it as a way to get money.
Richard Harris
The words of confirmation into the Church are an invitation: Receive the Holy Ghost. And that choice must be made not once, but every day, every hour, every minute.
Henry B. Eyring

Sarah Dessen
Manage through the uncertainties. Practice appropriate actions and participate in healthy choices. Value and celebrate the loyalty of the individuals around you: celebrate their competencies and successes, as well as your own. Build up your circle and reinforce it at every opportunity.
Mary Anne Radmacher
Life choices and projects and photo shoots, I can’t base them on anybody else but myself. I’ve done things where I’m like, “Do I want my dad to see this? I don’t know!” But the best lesson I can teach my sisters, or any younger women, is “Do what YOU do. Don’t follow me, follow you.”
Kiersey Clemons
Most of all I don’t want to be bored. That’s why I’d rather do something that has some sort of ambition, that risks failing, rather than make safer, more comfortable choices.
Steve Coogan
Engineering problems are under-defined, there are many solutions, good, bad and indifferent. The art is to arrive at a good solution. This is a creative activity, involving imagination, intuition and deliberate choice.
Ove Arup
Love is not an option. It’s the choice of an idiot who wants to end with nothing, robbed and abused and humiliated.
Matt Rees
Life is a choice… it’s a choice to be successful.
Josh Thomson
Earth is heaven. Or hell. Your choice.
Wayne Dyer
Real choice is clear information and the right to walk away from a bad deal without leaving your wallet behind.
Jeff Merkley
We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.
William Faulkner
Maybe we cannot escape from the destiny of the human, but we have a choice: to suffer our destiny or to enjoy our destiny.
Miguel Angel Ruiz
People who make the choice to study, work hard or do whatever they endeavor is to give it the max on themselves to reach to the top level. And you have the people who get envy and jealous, yet are not willing to put that work in, and they want to get the same praise.
Evander Holyfield
People say I make strange choices, but they’re not strange for me. My sickness is that I’m fascinated by human behavior, by what’s underneath the surface, by the worlds inside people.
Johnny Depp
But in the end one needs more courage to live than to kill himself.
Albert Camus
I really do think that if you’re doing your job right, you’re never gonna be what the other actor was, but you can be influenced by his intelligence and his choices.
Liev Schreiber
The question of being is everything. Nothing could be more important or consequential-n othing where the stakes run so high. To remain unconscious of being is to remain asleep to our own reality and therefore asleep to reality at large. The choice is simple: awaken to being or sleep an endless sleep.
Adyashanti
We have the choice of two identities: the external mask which seems to be real…and the hidden, inner person who seems to us to be nothing, but who can give himself eternally to the truth in whom he subsists. (295)
Thomas Merton
This wasn’t a choice between you and Jacob. It was a choice between who I am and who I should be.
Kristen Stewart
If it comes down to a choice between being unloved and being vulnerable and sensitive and emotional, then you can just keep your love.
Chuck Palahniuk
Everyone in a successful organization must be willing and ready to risk. Risk is like change; it’s not a choice.
Max De Pree
Science is a bit like the joke about the drunk who is looking under a lamppost for a key that he has lost on the other side of the street, because that’s where the light is. It has no other choice.
Noam Chomsky
Choose life over death, Niko, when a choice can be made that puts no soul in jeopardy.
Janet Morris
Life itself must be founded upon the infinite possibility for choice and accident. And if we cannot prove that it is, we must believe that it is. We must believe that we can change, that we can control, that we can direct our own destinies.
Anne Rice
I think you have to include your legacy in everything that you do because it makes you proceed with a little more mindfulness when it comes to decision-making, and the lives that you will affect by your choices.
Tichina Arnold
When my children were born, I made the choice I wanted them to be raised as Jews and to have a Jewish education.
Steven Spielberg
Strong, proactive obedience is anything but weak or passive. It is the means by which we declare our faith in God and qualify ourselves to receive the powers of heaven. Obedience is a choice. It is a choice between our own limited knowledge and power and God’s unlimited wisdom and omnipotence.
L. Tom Perry
Decide upon your major definite purpose in life and then organize all your activities around it.
Brian Tracy
When music is allowed to take the place of devotion and prayer, it is a terrible curse. Young people assemble together to sing, and, although professed Christians, frequently dishonor God and their faith by their frivolous conversation and their choice of music.
Ellen G. White
I’m satisfied with making true choices and finding the woman I love, Angie, and building a family that I love so much.
Brad Pitt
I, quite literally, woke up from a coma, from having tried to kill myself and it was very clear to me what my psychiatrist had been saying for years. The choice is not between a drug that has side effects or not, life is not ideal. Yes, your drug has side effects and yes if you don’t take it you’re going to die.
Kay Redfield Jamison
I think in my case, I had no choice but to have a good sense of humor. I grew up with my dad, Danny Thomas, and George Burns and Bob Hope and Milton Berle and Sid Caesar and all those guys were at our house all the time and telling jokes and making each other laugh.
Marlo Thomas
You never know what life can hand you, but YOU have the choice and power to give back love and kindness in all you do and how you treat others.
Angela Rockwood
I think we all make our own families, whether they’re comprised of blood relations or friends. Some people are lucky and love their families. Others aren’t. But whom we spend time with is always a choice. Including our pets.
Jane Cleland
Because Microsoft seems to sometimes not trust customer choice, they salt XP with all these little gizmos and trap doors to get people to try Microsoft stuff. But the reality is that we’re downloading more players than we ever have on a worldwide basis.
Robert Glaser
Women have to be the biggest champions in the world of other women’s choices.
Dee Dee Myers
The propensity to do good things is a choice.
Shaun Cassidy
This is a government takeover of our healthcare system. It is the government basically running the entire healthcare system, turning large insurers into de facto public utilities, depriving people of choice, depriving people of options, raising people’s prices, raising taxes when we need new jobs.
Paul Ryan
For each of us destiny is a blend of potential, circumstances, and choices.
Brandon Mull
Electing pro-choice Republican women can help foster a discussion that reflects the full spectrum of views and can lead to a more balanced and responsible public dialogue.
Linda Lingle
In heaven, there is no judgment, but rather an opportunity to examine our lives-who we touched, the choices we made, and the consequences of those choices.
Mitch Albom
We are a people with no army, no navy, no air force, no arms. It’s people, thousands of people, who are feeling, sensing the sense of urgency, fearing for the president of their life – the life of their president, trying to protect their democratic choice, because Arafat is the elected leader of the Palestinian people.
Saeb Erekat
O my choice beauty You’ve gone But your love remains in my heart Your image in my eye O guide on my winding road I keep turning round and round in the hopes of Finding you
Rumi
For if one should propose to all men a choice, bidding them select the best customs from all the customs that there are, each race of men, after examining them all, would select those of
his own people; thus all think that their own customs are by far the best
Herodotus
Could I have worked under a system where there were Draconian controls on my creativity, meaning budget, time, script choices, etc.? Definitely not. I would have fared poorly under the old studio system that guys like Howard Hawks did so well in. I cannot.
Michael Mann
If you’re given a choice between money and sex appeal, take the money. As you get older, the money will become your sex appeal.
Katharine Hepburn
On a musical level, I do find it rewarding. It’s not like I want to blow my brains out while I’m playing these songs from so long ago. I am still surprised by the way the songs are constructed – note choices, the way the arrangements are made, the way these songs are assembled. I’m still amazed at times.
David Pajo
Capitalism is not about free competitive choices among people who are reasonably equal in their buying and selling of economic power, it is about concentrating capital, concentrating economic power in very few hands using that power to trash everyone who gets in their way.
David Korten
Before it’s too late, we need to make courageous choices that will recreate a strong alliance between man and Earth. We need a decisive ‘yes’ to care for creation and a strong commitment to reverse those trends that risk making the situation of decay irreversible.
Pope Benedict XVI
No one can be responsible for where or how we each begin. No one has the freedom to do anything or everything, and all choices bring consequences. What we choose to do next, though, how to spend our resources or attention or effort, this is what defines us.
Seth Godin
A lot of people think that addiction is a choice. A lot of people think it’s a matter of will. That has not been my experience. I don’t find it to have anything to do with strength.
Matthew Perry
Katy Perry still gets me every time. She’s very funny in person! We met at the Teen Choice Awards and she pulled my cheeks apart and told me how cute I was. My life was literally flashing before my eyes!
Niall Horan
It’s absolutely crucial that we come face to face with the power of our choices.
Rob Bell
Fundamentally, we are a product of choice, not nature (genes) or nurture (upbringing, environment).
Stephen Covey
Walking the walk doesn’t begin with a step. It begins with a choice. You can turn fear into action and let doubt become confidence. Find your pride and let it fuel your courage. Turn tomorrow into today and turn today into RIGHT NOW!
Rich Gaspari
Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
Perfect is not on the menu. Nobody is going to be your ideal candidate. You can’t dream somebody up out of nothing that’s going to be the perfect candidate, so you do have to pick between a series of bad choices.
Margaret Hoover
The best way to experience the power of fundamental choices is to make them.
Robert Fritz
When I make a film I’m away from home for two to three months. So I want my kids to look at my films one day and say, I love his movies, I love his choices-because he loved them.
Kevin Costner
People can be happy while they are going through great pain and adversity. There’s no pleasure evident in their external lives yet they are content on the inside. And conversely, tons of people are surrounded by pleasure (fast cars, nice homes, great clothes) but there is no joy within. So choose to be happy.
Robin Sharma
I put my career in second place throughout both my marriages and it suffered. I don’t regret it. You make choices. If you want a good marriage, you must pay attention to that. If you want to be independent, go ahead. You can’t have it all.
Lauren Bacall
The past is a rich resource on which we can draw in order to make decisions for the future, but it does not dictate our choices. We should look back at the past and select what is good, and leave behind what is bad.
Nelson Mandela
People came into the Church in the Roman Empire because the Church was so good-Catholics were so good to one another, and they were so good to pagans, too. High-pressure evangelization strikes me as an attempt to deprive people of their freedom of choice.
Andrew Greeley
A moment of choice is a moment of truth. It’s the testing point of our character and competence.
Stephen Covey
You never think the universe will reward your first choice – it just doesnt work like that.
Kathryn Bigelow
The struggle is to stay present enough when you’re taking your next step forward that you’re really making your most honest choices.
Sara Bareilles
You can never take too much care over the choice of your shoes.
Christian Dior
I am not asking anyone to take the fun out of childhood. As we all know, treats are one of the best parts of being a kid. Instead, the goal here is to empower parents instead of undermining them as they try to make healthier choices for their families.
Michelle Obama
If you make the choice to serve the public, public service, then serve the public, not yourself.
Jack Abramoff
My nutrition choices are for my health, not to lose weight.
Suzanne Whang

Everyone needs love, never hurt a living thing [and] don’t worry about the choices you make because everything will be fun because life is a closet filled with pool toys.
Amy Poehler
When life puts you through a tumbler, it’s your choice whether you come out polished or crushed.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
There is nothing more becoming any wise man, than to make choice of friends, for by them thou shalt be judged what thou art: let them therefore be wise and virtuous, and none of those that follow thee for gain; but make election rather of thy betters, than thy inferiors.
Walter Raleigh
If all my talents and powers were to be taken from me by some unscrutable Providence, and I had my choice of keeping but one, I would unhesitatingly ask for be allowed to keep the Power of Speaking, for through it I would quickly recover all the rest.
Daniel Webster
I start with the story, almost in the old campfire sense, and the story leads to both the characters, which actors should best be cast in this story, and the language. The choice of words, more than anything else, creates the feeling that the story gives off.
Donald E. Westlake
Without ethics man has no future. This is to say mankind without them cannot be itself. Ethics determine choices and actions and suggest difficult priorities.
John Berger
There are so many choices I made simply for health insurance. Is it the ideal role I wanted to play, or the TV show I wanted to be a part of? No, but it let me afford to go to the doctor.
Amy Ryan
Remember that it is not enough to have everything around you beautiful, remember that there must also be change and flux, because it is through change that we pretend that we can make decisions, and keep our pride, and go on pretending that both change and choice exist.
Marian Engel
For the first time in my life I’ve done something for me and by choice and not because somebody told me it was good or bad.
Lauren Oliver
The priests say that God created our souls, and that just puts us under the control of another puppeteer. If God created our will, then he’s responsible for every choice we make.
Orson Scott Card
Looking back, I’m really happy with the choices I’ve made in my career. I know for a fact I could be wealthier. Who knows, maybe I could be more successful, maybe not. I don’t know. But just about every single thing I’ve ever done I’ve gone into with the right intentions, and that goes a long way.
Paul Rudd
May our daily choices be a reflection of our deepest values, and may we use our voices to speak for those who need us most, those who have no voice, those who have no choice.
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
I really like directors who give you a certain amount of autonomy because I think a lot about my characters and I think a lot about scenes and choices.
Sarah Gadon
If I had to narrow my choice of meats down to one for the rest of my life, I am quite certain that meat would be pork.
James Beard
Small- and medium-sized businesses need access to a diverse range of finance options, including non-bank lending. These new forms of finance are still small in scale today but they should, over time, bring additional choice and greater competition to the lending market.
Vince Cable
I have practically no private life. I’m already used to this and ready for it. Yes, sometimes it is hard, but it is the choice I made.
Cristiano Ronaldo
I think most people are not willing to make the tough choices.
Rick Scott
The real choice we have to make is between peace and nationalism.
Orhan Pamuk
You can’t have it both ways. Either our rights come from God, as our Declaration of Independence says, or they come from human choice. If they come from human choice, then our whole way of life is meaningless, it has no foundation.
Alan Keyes
A republic will avoid war unless the avoidance might create conditions that are worse than warfare itself. Sometimes, the dispositions of those who choose to make themselves our enemies leaves us no choice.
Thomas Jefferson
When you’re working on development issues, optimism is not always based on rational analysis, often it is a moral choice.
Jim Yong Kim
Don’t wavier. Make a decision. Do it now.
Billy Graham
It seems to me that everything that happens to us is a disconcerting mix of choice and contingency.
Penelope Lively
Bushido is realised in the presence of death. In the case of having to choose between life and death you should choose death. There is no other reasoning.
Yamamoto Tsunetomo
No one likes kids. We say we do, and we take pictures of pregnant women for People Magazine, but really they’re commodities – we hate them around, we hate them on airplanes, we consider them a grand imposition and almost a style choice.
Sarah Ruhl
I’ve found that a combination of therapy and medication, along with lifestyle choices like eating better and exercising regularly, helps me cope well with my anxiety.
John Corey Whaley
I don’t believe in fate. I don’t believe in cushioning your insecurities with a system of belief that tells you ‘Don’t worry. This may be your life but you’re not in control. There is something or someone looking out for you — it’s already organised.’ It’s all chance and choice, which is far more frightening.
Maggie O’Farrell
Everyone makes choices in life. Some bad, some good. It’s called living, and if you want to bow out, then go right ahead. But don’t do it halfway. Don’t linger in whiner’s limbo.
Maria V. Snyder
The choices that make a significant difference in our lives are the tough ones. They’re not often fun or easy, but they’re the ones we have to make, and each is a deliberate step toward better understanding who we really are.
Alexandra Stoddard
If you have a choice of selling shoes to ladies or giving birth to a flaming porcupine… look into that second, less painful career.
Richard Jeni
The artist is the only one who knows that the world is a subjective creation, that there is a choice to be made, a selection of elements.
Anais Nin
Our life is all about the choices we make, and when I was looking for a mate for life, I really was looking for someone who was a family man, somebody who would embrace my girls as much as they were going to embrace me. I guess I just wasn’t finished having children yet.
Joan Lunden
A man is too apt to forget that in this world he cannot have everything. A choice is all that is left him.
Harlan Mathews
If you have to choose between power and speed and it often turns out you have to make that choice, you’ve got to go for speed.
Sparky Anderson
If I have a choice whether to do the show or throw a straight pass, and we’re going to get the basket either way, I’m going to do the show.
Pete Maravich
We have a choice: to spend a lot of time fighting for what we know is right, or to just accept what we know is wrong. We must stand up for our rights and for the rights of others, even if most people say we can’t win.
Susan Polis Schutz
The choices you make from this day forward will lead you, step by step, to the future you deserve.
Chris Murray
Love is a choice, love is an act of will, you can choose to love.
Matthew Kelly
My memoir is being published by Beaufort Books and will be available fall of 2015. Its about my unusual life as a child actor and how I made the unpopular choice to leave Hollywood, grow up, and stop pretending.
Lisa Jakub
It was in 2003 that I realised there was no choice but to have dialysis treatment – by the time of the World Cup that year, I could barely walk. A year later, I finally had a kidney transplant.
Jonah Lomu
I’m not particularly a career-oriented guy. I’m lucky. I can make really interesting films much of the time with interesting people yet be anonymous, have a private life. But, I’d like to have the choice of the better roles.
Aidan Quinn
It’s cool to see a woman be like, ‘This is what I want – this is what I don’t want.’ It’s good to see someone making choices for themselves.
Jessica Williams
We don’t get to chose what is true. We only get to choose what we do about it.
Kami Garcia
Simply stated, testimony-real testimony, born of the Spirit and confirmed by the Holy Ghost-changes lives. It changes how you think and what you do. It changes what you say. It affects every priority you set and every choice you make.
M. Russell Ballard
Choice of aim is clearly a matter of clarification of values, especially on the choice between possible options.
W. Edwards Deming
So, take what’s inside you and make big, bold choices and for those who can’t speak for themselves, use bold voices and make friends and love well, bring art to this place and make the world better for the whole human race.
Jamie Lee Curtis
One learns better than to hand one’s choices to fear. With age, with every wound and scar, one learns.
Lois McMaster Bujold
There is nothing like scrubbing toilets for a living to make you question the choices you have made in life.
Raegan Butcher
There are two ways to respond to the trials and tribulations of our present and past . . . ‘Ain’t it awful?’ . . . or . . . ‘Good information!’ Our choice of responses will determine our experience of life.
Bill Crawford
If you’re informed, you make an informed choice. You understand the quality of certain things and you understand the history of certain things.
Lupe Fiasco
The greatest satisfaction you can obtain from life is your pleasure in producing, in your own individual way, something of value to your fellowmen. That is creative living! For you, life can be a succession of glorious adventures. Or it can be a monotonous bore.
Take your choice!
Neil Gaiman
Attitude is a choice. Think positive thoughts daily. Believe in yourself.
Pat Summitt
The bottom line is we believe that parents are the best equipped to make choices for their children’s schooling and education decisions.
Betsy DeVos
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he’s absolutely free to choose.
William M. Bulger
In the end, it all comes to choices to turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones.
Scott Peterson
Man has no choice but to love. For when he does not, he finds his alternatives lie in loneliness, destruction and despair.
Leo Buscaglia
And I think that you do not understand that sometimes the only choice is between acceptance and madness.
Cassandra Clare
You’ve got to be willing to forgive and say, ‘God, get something good out of something bad.’ And if you’ll make that choice… God will do it.
Don Young
If there are a thousand steps between us and God, He will take all but one. He will leave the final one for us. The choice is ours.
Max Lucado
A system of limitless individual choices, with respect to communications, is not necessarily in the interest of citizenship and self-government.
Cass Sunstein
Choice is your greatest power. It is an even greater power than love, because you must first choose to be a loving person.
Caroline Myss
After the sale of Celtel, I really wanted to give the money back, and I had a number of choices – to go and buy masses of blankets and baby milk or to go into Darfur or Congo. That would have been very nice actually, but it’s just like an aspirin: it doesn’t deal with the problem.
Mo Ibrahim
Every choice we make can be a celebration of the world we want.
Frances Moore LappГ©
Live simply; make compassionate choices when it comes to food.
Billy Corgan
Every man builds his world in his own image. He has the power to choose, but no power to escape the necessity of choice.
Ayn Rand
The joyful news for anyone who desires to be rid of the consequences of past poor choices is that the Lord sees weaknesses differently than He does rebellion. Whereas the Lord warns that unrepented rebellion will bring punishment, when the Lord speaks of weaknesses, it is always with mercy.
Richard G. Scott
That is what love is I thought. A possibility that becomes a choice. A choice you keep making over and over. Day after day. Year after year. Time after time.
Cameron Dokey
Less depends upon the choice of words than upon this, that their introduction shall be justified by pregnant theorems.
Carl Friedrich Gauss
I’ve done a lot of independent travelling, which hasn’t been the best career choice, but it’s been a really great life choice.
Nikki Reed
Insecurity is a toxin and confidence is a tonic, so make the choice not to dwell on the worst possible case.
Emily Yoffe
In the midst of the flurry – clarity.
In the midst of the storm – calm.
In the midst of divided interests – certainty.
In the many roads – a certain choice.
Mary Anne Radmacher
The choice that you, as a Soul, have in relation to anything is always to be loving. Do you understand that this is the divine purpose that all of us as humans have been given – to love unconditionally?
John Morton
As the heated debate continues, it will be important that nonproliferation experts play a critical role in the discourse. Science-based statements, not snarky sound bites, should be the weapons of choice.
David Corn
You always do what you want to do. This is true with every act. You may say that you had to do something, or that you were forced to, but actually, whatever you do, you do by choice. Only you have the power to choose for yourself.
W. Clement Stone
If the public homage of a people can ever be worthy of the favorable regard of the Holy and Omniscient Being to Whom it is addressed, it must be that in which those who join in it are guided only be their free choice-by the impulse of their hearts and the dictates of their consciences.
James Madison
Heaven on Earth is a choice you must make, not a place you must find.
Wayne Dyer
Our character is but the stamp on our souls of the free choices of good and evil we have made through life.
Cunningham Geikie
I second-guess myself all the time. I make a decision and then wonder if I made the wrong choice.
Kate Walsh
Through reading the scriptures I realized there was a purpose for my life, that I was created for a reason, that I was significant, that it was my choices that got me to where I was at and that it would be my choices that would get me to where I wanted to be as well.
Christian Hosoi
I am an American. I adore Britain and have a strong English half, but my roots are here in the U.S. – it is not a matter of choice; it is simply fact.
Jennifer Ehle
The written word is the basic of everything. Most important, the idea, and after that, the dialogue. You can rehash the dialogue as you go along, it ‘s disgraceful to have to do this, but now and again you have no choice.
Terence Fisher
Texas is so big, and the place where I grew up was so little, and I was such a little thing growing up in the middle of it. I had two choices: I could either spend my life feeling insignificant, or I could look on the life I lived as a microcosm of the universe.
Sissy Spacek
A small behavioral change can also lead to embracing a wider checklist of healthier choices.
Chuck Norris
With acting there are a lot more choices, With this, I either stick it or I don’t. There’s something really unforgiving about that.
Claire Danes
Forgiveness is the choice to see people as they are now. When we’re mad at people, we’re angry because of something they said or did before this moment. By letting go of the past, we make room for miracles to replace our grievances.
Marianne Williamson
When what is is congruent to what is supposed, the reaction is functional and the mental processes competent. When what is and what is supposed have nothing to do with each other, the choice of reactions is random. Something tears.
Samuel R. Delany
If you make a careless choice, you can really ruin things and it can take awhile for them to repair.
Jenny Slate
Being a musician is a given for me-I didn’t have much choice in the matter.
Tom Morello
Even Alexia, spinster that she was, was given an allowance large enough to dress her to the height of fashion— although she did tend to stick to trends a little too precisely. The poor thing could not help it. Her choice of clothing simply lacked soul.
Gail Carriger
Feelings come to us, passively; love comes from us, actively, by our free choice.
Peter Kreeft
Every minute doing one thing is a minute not doing something else. Every choice is another choice not made another path grown over lost.
Jerry Weintraub
We struggled against apartheid because we were being blamed and made to suffer for something we could do nothing about. It is the same with homosexuality. The orientation is a given, not a matter of choice. It would be crazy for someone to choose to be gay, given the homophobia that is present.
Desmond Tutu
Mrs. Bonneville never buckled her seat belt, even though it was required by state law; an ardent libertarian, she opposed government meddling in all matters of personal choice.
Carl Hiaasen
Unless virtue guide us our choice must be wrong.
William Penn
The only problem I had on The Voice, was wishing that we, as artists, could have had a stronger opinion in our own song choices. At the end of the day, it’s still a vocal competition show and you want to sing the song that showcases your voice the best.
Curtis Grimes
Happiness is a choice we make. You can wake up and say, ‘Oh, I can’t believe it’s so cold,’ or you can say, ‘Oh, wow, this is a great opportunity for me to try out my new sweater.’ No one can be consistently positive, but why not make the choice that makes you feel better rather than the one that drags you down?
Miranda Kerr
It’s not complicated to embrace life. You just have to make the choice.
Faith Hill
Albert Durer, the famous painter, used to say he had no pleasure in pictures that were painted with many colors, but in those which were painted with a choice simplicity. So it is with me as to sermons.
Martin Luther
In the military, and in business, the most elite and effective teams I’ve seen or been part of are filled with individuals who take responsibility for their choices. Life is a series of decisions that you make and actions you take, not a series of things that happen to you.
Chris Fussell
I had achieved the most important things in my life when I married Joan and had the sons. Given the choice between Joan and the boys, and being a writer, I world give up being a writer without a blink.
Robert B. Parker
I think we are living in a time where the consumer has lots of choices, whether it’s coffee, newspapers or whatever it is. And there is parity in the market place, and as a result of that, the consumer is beginning to make decisions, not just on what things cost and the convenience of it.
Howard Schultz
Most men, I am convinced, have an unmistakable feeling at the final moment of significant choice that they are making a free decision, that they can really decide which one of two or more roads to follow.

In a time of tight budgets, difficult choices have to be made. We must make sure our very limited resources are spent on priorities. I believe we should have no higher priority than investing in our children’s classrooms and in their future.
Bob Riley
Try to discover who I am from my choice of words and colors, as attentive people like yourselves might examine footprints to catch a thief.
Orhan Pamuk

Kate Bornstein
I know what I want and know my values, and therefore, it’s easy to take hard choices when you know what the ambitions are and what values you stand for, so it’s all about staying true to yourself, be yourself.
Ada Hegerberg
When silence is a choice, it is an unnerving presence. When silence is imposed, it is censorship.

David A. Bednar
Guy Lafleur said “Each of us has only one past but there are many futures”.
Billy Graham
Life seems to be a choice between two wrong answers.
Sharyn McCrumb
It’s sad. Marxism didn’t work. Communism didn’t work. Capitalism doesn’t work.  Nothing works. Even democracy doesn’t work. Democracy-the greatest form of government and we have two choices for who’s our leader. In fascism you only have one choice. That’s great. We have one more choice than the worst form of government.
Colin Quinn
It’s great when you can just focus your whole attention on the music and hear all of the decisions and choices that were made.
Michael Cera
The servant-leader is servant first… It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. That person is sharply different from one who is leader first.
Robert K. Greenleaf
Anything worth doing, is worth doing all the way. Just know you’ll have to live with all the choices that you make.
Reba McEntire
Choice matters. You might have the opportunity to eat a nutritious diet, though you might choose to eat a lousy diet. What matters is the opportunity.
Martha C. Nussbaum
It’s about players making choices as they play, and then dealing with the consequences of those choices. It’s about you telling your story, not me telling mine. It’s about you.
Warren Spector
It really is a choice between division or unity, between an economy that works for everyone or one that is stacked for those at the top, between strong, steady leadership or a loose cannon.
Hillary Clinton
It is far better to limit our choice to real permanencies, which do not require staking… and a general mixture throughout of dwarf shrubs, perennials and ground-covers, with bulbs… This has been called gardening in four layers, and I believe it to be the most satisfying form of gardening.
Graham Stuart Thomas
I have the ability to make a choice in how I respond. My natural response does not have to be the only response I have.
Jill Bolte Taylor
I want to stress again the importance of really living what we claim to believe. That needs to be a priority-not just in our personal and family lives but in our churches, our political choices, our business dealings, our treatment of the poor; in other words, in everything we do.
Charles J. Chaput
Rather than being confined to a separate dimension, martial arts should be an extension of our way of living, of our philosophies, of the way we educate our children, of the job we devote so much of our time to, of the relationships we cultivate, and of the choices we make every day.
Daniele Bolelli
We are here because we are determined to offer the people of the Western Cape choices which are long overdue.

The biggest part of my fashion choices is how comfortable it is.
L’Wren Scott
And so it is, that both the Devil and the angelic Spirit present us with objects of desire to awaken our power of choice.

Choices may be unbelievably hard but they’re never impossible. To say you have no choice is to release yourself from responsibility and that’s not how a person with integrity acts.
Patrick Ness
Did she ever regret her choices? Were her decisions more clear-cut than mine – or are there always shades of gray whe it comes to matters of the heart?

Dejan Stojanovic
I’m a Christian by choice.
Barack Obama
Freedom of religion, as the Founding Fathers saw it, was not just the right to associate oneself with a certain denomination but the right to disassociate without penalty. Belief or nonbelief was a matter of individual choice – a right underwritten in the basic charter of the nation’s liberties.
Norman Cousins
Misperceiving that there is one correct choice is a common mistake. Coming to understand that there are usually a few good choices–and then there’s the one you pick, commit to, and make great–is the best way to make flexible, optimal, good decisions in life.
Katie Couric
Some people get into this business and they’re so afraid to lose anything. They try to protect their position like clinging to a beachhead. These actors end up making really safe choices. I never wanted to go that route. If I go down, I’m going down swinging.
Matt Damon
The choices that we make aren’t always perfect but it’s ok… It’s part of the journey.
Hayley Williams
The pleasure is our choice.
Esther Hicks
In the long run, our most deeply held desires will govern our choices, one by one and day by day, until our lives finally add up to what we have really wanted most–for good or otherwise. We can indeed have eternal life, if we really want it, so long as we don’t want something else more.
Bruce C. Hafen
I found nothing really wrong with this autobiography except poor choice of subject.

Suzanne Collins
… on the right occasion a bold choice of opening can unnerve even the most steely opponent.
Neil McDonald
We don’t usually think of what we eat as a matter of ethics. Stealing, lying, hurting people – these acts are obviously relevant to our moral character. In ancient Greece and Rome, ethical choices about food were considered at least as significant as ethical choices about sex.
Peter Singer
The choices we make define our future.
Michael J. Silverstein
The most important thing about a child’s education is to have a great teacher in front of the classroom and a lot of choice and accountability with parents.

Noah Feldman
I think the Republican Party should be a pro-life party. I am pro-life. I do not apologize for that. On the flip side of that coin, the Republican Party has been big enough to allow pro-choice advocates to be heard.
J. C. Watts
Given the choice of living in Los Angeles or living in Sydney, I would choose Sydney.
Matthew Nable
Besides writing music and surfing, I like to simply chill with my friends. Watching movies and going out to eat are often my prime choices for a day off.
James Maslow
A voice in me said, You have to rise to the occasion or the best in you will die. We always have that voice; we just have to make a choice to listen to it. We all have it; that’s God’s given light. It’s just whether you have the courage to step into your destiny.
Lily Yeh
Believe me, my journey has not been a simple journey of progress. There have been many ups and downs, and it is the choices that I made at each of those times that have helped shape what I have achieved.
Satya Nadella
Marketers know – no matter how deep the emotional connection or brand loyalty – when a product does not perform, rational thought overtakes emotion, and most consumers make a new choice.
Mark McKinnon
Love is Chocolate The unprocessed kind. Dark. Bitter. But always with the promise of sweet perfection. All it takes is sugar- that certain someone’s kiss, flavored with possibility. If Dani has taught me anything, it’s that life is brimming with possibilities. Every single day brings choices.
Ellen Hopkins
Choose the life that is most useful, and habit will make it the most agreeable.
Francis Bacon
Obama, startled that components of government behave as interest groups, seems utterly unfamiliar with public choice theory. It demystifies and de-romanticizes politics by applying economic analysis – how incentives influence behavior – to government.
George Will
If I pretend to myself that I’m different from the way I truly am, I’m going to make choices that won’t make me happy.
Gretchen Rubin
Milos said, You’re my first choice. From my point of view, that doesn’t pay the rent. I said, Tell me what I have to do next because I’m busy painting my kitchen.
F. Murray Abraham
If you take a single word…and make it your own on a day-to-day basis, I hope it’s choose. Being able to choose to act differently, even while feeling the old way, may be the most liberating growth you can accomplish.

In a world of infinite choice people are struggling to figure out what to do.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Arthur Miller
I never really called myself pro-choice.

Cheryl Strayed
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.

Gabrielle Reece
The saddest thing in life is wasted talent and the choices you make will shape your life forever.
Chazz Palminteri

Attitude is a choice. What you think you can do, whether positive or negative, confident or scared, will most likely happen.
Pat Summitt
I’m against abortion. On the other hand, I believe in a woman’s choice.

Friedrich Nietzsche
I believe that the fundamental alternative for man is the choice between “life” and “death”; between creativity and destructive violence; between reality and illusions; between objectivity
and intolerance; between brotherhood-independence and dominance-submission.
Erich Fromm
Anger is a choice, as well as a habit. It is a learned reaction to frustration, in which you behave in ways that you would rather not. In fact, severe anger is a form of insanity. You are insane whenever you are not in control of your behavior. Therefore, when you are angry and out of control, you are temporarily insane.
Wayne Dyer
Citizens by birth or choice of a common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations.
George Washington
I’d like to promote lots of things. I’d like to promote elimination of drug prohibition. I’d like to promote parental choice in education through vouchers. Those are two things I think are very urgent and important. They’re both more important than the harm which Social Security will do.
Milton Friedman
Luck is opportunity met by preparation – and to be prepared or unprepared is a personal choice.

Laurell K. Hamilton

Robert D. Hales
I like all kinds of comedy. I like comedy that doesn’t talk about real beliefs or serious thoughts, but then I also like the stuff that does. I think it just depends. It’s a completely personal choice.
Maria Bamford
Only a fool would try to deprive working men and working women of their right to join the union of their choice.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
But for me, to get the tattoo was part of moving into adulthood. Making a choice that is permanent and that I’ll have to stick with.
Francois Arnaud

Tom Glazer
God is present in the moment of choice, not in order to watch but in order to be chosen. Therefore, each person must choose. Terrible is the battle, in a person’s innermost being, between God and the world. The crowning risk involved lies in the possession of choice.
Soren Kierkegaard
Our enemies send other people’s children on missions of suicide and murder. They embrace tyranny and death as a cause and a creed. We stand for a different choice – made long ago, on the day of our founding. We affirm it again today. We choose freedom and the dignity of every life.
George W. Bush
We will lower the tax burden on middle class Americans by asking the very wealthy to pay their fair share. Middle class taxpayers will have a choice between a children’s tax credit or a significant reduction in their income tax rate.

George Eliot
The way you react has been repeated thousands of times, and it has become a routine for you. You are conditioned to be a certain way. And that is the challenge: to change your normal reactions, to change your routine, to take a risk and make different choices.
Miguel Angel Ruiz
The whole acting thing is a buffet. One, in terms of role choice and movie choice, I like to do lots of different things, and I think that’s the whole fun of it. But I also see it as a buffet in terms of the character.
Topher Grace
I want you to back yourself into a corner. Give yourself no choice but to succeed. Let the consequences of failure become so dire and so unthinkable that you’ll have no choice but to do whatever it takes to succeed.
Jordan Belfort
It is almost impossible for anyone, even the most ineffective among us, to continue to choose misery after becoming aware that it is a choice.
William Glasser
That which you call your soul or spirit is your consciousness, and that which you call ‘free will’ is your mind’s freedom to think or not, the only will you have, your only freedom, the choice that controls all the choices you make and determines your life and your character.
Ayn Rand
For what is man without desires, without free will, and without the power of choice but a stop in an organ pipe?
Fyodor Dostoevsky
We go forward with complete confidence in the eventual triumph of freedom. Not because history runs on the wheels of inevitability; it is human choices that move events. Not because we consider ourselves a chosen nation; God moves and chooses as He wills.
George W. Bush
Each of us will have to make the choices that allow us to be the largest versions of ourselves.

Robert D. Hales
The One created us all to be free. To learn. To find common cause with others and to grow stronger and wiser. But the ancient enemy perverts that union of strengths. With the enemy, there is no choice, no freedom. They take. They force a joining of all things, until nothing else remains. –Doroga
Jim Butcher
I think everybody should take the attitude that we’re working to be a champion, that we want to be a champion in everything that we do. Every choice, every decision, everything that we do every day, we want to be a champion.
Nick Saban
We have a lot of things to work through. But the American people need to have confidence that we`re going to change things, but we`re going to move us in to a direction of more decisions and more choices, and not a diminishing of responsibility and care that people are really relied upon.
Asa Hutchinson

Lisa Mangum
Democracies should be a delirium of choices – more options, not fewer; more avenues to travel, not fewer.
B. W. Powe
We need to be ambivalent – in the essay, and in life too. Ambivalence – having mixed feelings, entertaining contradiction, living with fluctuation – is a widened embrace. It’s about the coexistence of things, and in that light, we have no choice in the matter.
Charles D’Ambrosio
As much as we have free choice, absolute destiny is immutable. What is meant to happen does, through one measure or another.
J.R. Ward

Martha Manning
We’re seeing China push very hard in its immediate neighborhood, particularly in the maritime zone surrounding China, to kind of create a security zone for itself, trying to lock in the territorial and maritime gains that it can now, before a period of much more difficult choices arises some time in the 2020s.
Howard W. French
You write your life story by the choices you make. You never know if they have been a mistake. Those moments of decision are so difficult.

Suresh Raina
Making conscious choices about what we eat, based on what the earth can sustain and what our bodies need, can help remind us that our whole society must begin to balance sustainable production with human need.
Frances Moore LappГ©
My friend taught me this one. You take the heel of your hand, you can shove someone’s nose right through their brain. I can’t even watch someone blow their nose. If I’m in a fight, I’m not gonna be shoving or poking, I’m gonna be running or begging – that’s my two choices, right there.
Andy Kindler
Through basic science literacy, people can understand the policy choices we need to be making. Scientists are not necessarily the greatest communicators, but science and communication is one of the fundamentals we need to address. People are interested.
James Murdoch
You are defined by who you are, by your choices in life, in all regards, not just in doing movies.
Andy Garcia
We’re constantly making choices about the way we spend our time. The issue is not between the good and the bad, but between the good and the best. So often, the enemy of the best is the good.

John Wesley said that if you give up the witchcraft, you must give up the Bible. He is right. The choice is easy for me.

Gordon B. Hinckley
Every one of us gets to find our way, hopefully surrounded by love, but we still have to pick out our own way through the land mines of life. By accepting this and relinquishing control, there’s just extraordinary beauty.
Ali MacGraw
Well folks, what do you think? Here’s our choices.. Should I give Paul Bearer back to Kane? Should I shove Paul Bearer down these steps?
Edge
The problem with putting it all on the line is that it might not work out. The problem with not putting it all on the line is that it will never (ever) change things for the better. Not much of a choice, I think.
Seth Godin
Style is having the courage of one’s choices and the courage to say no. It’s good taste and culture.
Giorgio Armani

I am interested in costume. Clothes in your daily life are important: your choices say something about you, even if what they’re saying is about non-choice. And what you wear in a film is crucial.
Clemence Poesy
I’m always surprised at what I actually end up doing because I don’t have a strategy or a game plan, especially now that I’m making my own choices.
Gemma Arterton
Always go with the choice that scares you the most, because that’s the one that is going to require the most from you.В  Do you really want to look back on your life and see how wonderful it could have been had you not been afraid to live it?
Caroline Myss
We don’t have the choice to control our emotions, but we do have the power to educate our emotions. And we do that through literature and through art and music to give ourselves a repertoire of emotional experiences.

Jack Antonoff
The argument goes that the pay gap only exists because of women’s ‘choices’ of work type, hours, and child related career breaks, effectively making it a myth. But research shows that while those are factors, they don’t account for the whole gap, suggesting that discrimination certainly plays a role as well.
Laura Bates
I usually wake up far after breakfast. So I have no other choice but to go straight to dinner.
Marilyn Manson
Choices are made in brief seconds and paid for in the time that remains
Paolo Giordano
Women tend to judge other women harshly. We should be kinder to each other, accept that we’re all different and can make different choices. Not go for some kind of stereotypical idea that we’re perfect. Frankly, I’m not perfect.
Cherie Blair
The key to getting the most from choice is to be choosy about choosing.

If we don’t forgive ourselves for mistakes we’ve made-and everybody’s made their choices, some worse than others-we’ll never experience the good life God has in store.
Joel Osteen
I hope that people will see that we don’t have to sit by the sidelines and watch as the two major parties limit their choices to slightly different flavors of the status quo. It is, in fact, possible to join the fray, stand up for principles and offer a real alternative.
Gary Johnson
The places I’ve travelled and cultures I’ve experienced have been reflected in my home decor choices.
Karlie Kloss
Go your way. Forget Prometheus, And all the woe that he is doom’d to bear; By his own choice this vile estate preferring To ignorant bliss and unfelt slavery.
Hartley Coleridge
Do not accept whatever comes. Do not accept whatever goes. You have infinite power. Exercise your choice.
Amit Ray
In times of adversity – for the country we love – Maryland always chooses to move forward. Progress is a choice. Job creation is a choice. Whether we move forward or back: this too is a choice.
Martin O’Malley
She wanted us to have more than five choices. Now we have none.
Veronica Roth
Choices are powerful things. In fact, they’re more powerful than most things.
Amy Neftzger
I would always say to anyone, you make choices that are important to you. Don’t allow yourself to be exploited by something as fleeting as fame and fortune. If you’re presenting yourself in a way that important to you in communicating your vision, then so be it. No one should allow themselves to be exploited ever.
Patti Smith
Affirmative action is a little like the professional football draft. The NFL awards its No. 1 draft choices to the lowest-ranked team in the league. It doesn’t do this out of compassion or guilt. It’s done for mutual survival. They understand that a league can only be as strong as its weakest team.
