Choice quotes by Wanda Buckner
#1. Healing is about choices - choices to treat or not to treat, to
choose one type of intervention over another, or to choose one
method of treatment in conjunction with another. One choice does not eliminate all other possibilities.
You can choose and choose again. The most important
choice is the decision to heal; all else follows. #Quote by Wanda Buckner
Choice quotes by Lysa TerKeurst
#2. If we find that certain foods are impossible to walk away from - we can't or won't deny ourselves an unhealthy choice in order to make a healthier choice - then it's a clue we are being ruled by this food on some level. #Quote by Lysa TerKeurst
Choice quotes by International Covenant On Civil And Political Rights

1. Everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference.

2. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice.

(b) For the protection of national security or of public order (ordre public), or of public health or morals. #Quote by International Covenant On Civil And Political Rights
Choice quotes by Magdalena Ganowska
#4. Solitude is the worst of punishments. It's like waiting in the Death Row for your last supper and the final blow, the chair or gas or whatever. The utter act of capital punishment, except it's lasting an eternity. You'd say being alone, single, can have an array of possibilities, positive sides. You'd argue when being approached with such a statement! You'd mention how good it feels to be independent, to have a free choice, not depending on anyone else's opinion. The space in your life, the remote in your hand that is not wrestled for, the cookies, still present in the jar, waiting for you to eat them. The wide bed and the covers just for your own pleasure and usage. I can see you throwing your arguments at me, fighting passionately since you strongly believe that what you say, is the truth.
And then, the night falls, devouring your clearly visible assumptions and postulates, making some room for doubt and fright. You hear the silence that grows around you, feel it possessing you from the inside and you don't have time to brace yourself for what's coming. The horrid feeling of incompletion and senseless existence catch you with overpowering force, making your throat shrink and your mind tight. You're scared so much that all seems so dark and eerie. Then, you ask yourself whether it was really you who chose this, who decided upon this unbearable state of utter loneliness. The answer is usually the same. It is always you, always me. Not consciously, but by our choices, we #Quote by Magdalena Ganowska
Choice quotes by Richie Norton
#5. Follow your passion and learn how to make money at it. Or don't follow your passion and learn to make money at that. They are the same. It's a choice. #Quote by Richie Norton
Choice quotes by Shawn Achor
#6. Scientifically, happiness is a choice. It is a choice about where your single processor brain will devote its finite resources as you process the world. #Quote by Shawn Achor
Choice quotes by Marshall B. Rosenberg
#7. Use the words "I feel because I" to remind us that what we feel it isn't because of what the other person did, but because of a choice I've made. #Quote by Marshall B. Rosenberg
Choice quotes by Nicole Williams
#8. You've always got a choice. You have a choice now, and you certainly had a choice then. Don't blame them for the choices you made. #Quote by Nicole Williams
Choice quotes by Rachel Weisz
#9. I think actors have a choice of drawing attention to themselves or living on the outskirts. #Quote by Rachel Weisz
Choice quotes by Emil Ostrovski
#10. Your-no-our free will gives us choices and because we're not perfect, it's not always clear which choice is the right one ... So yes, we can be wrong. Yes the world's a messy place. But a world in which we always knew what was right and had no choice but to do it, that would be a world of puppets. #Quote by Emil Ostrovski
Choice quotes by T.J. Klune
#11. There are moments in your life, moments when chances have to be taken. It's scary because there is always the possibility of failure. I know that. I KNOW that. Because once upon a time, I took a chance on a man that I had failed before. I was SCARED. I was TERRIFIED. I thought I might lose everything. But I wasn't living, then. The life I had before wasn't LIVING. It was getting by. And I will never regret the chances I took. Because it brought me to them. To all of them. I made my choice. And you're making yours.

Don't you wish things could be different? #Quote by T.J. Klune
Choice quotes by Beryl Dov
#12. Two Evils [10w]
The lesser of two evils is the party pooper's choice. #Quote by Beryl Dov
Choice quotes by George W. Bush
#13. I've been to war. I've raised twins. If I had a choice, I'd rather go to war. #Quote by George W. Bush
Choice quotes by Doug Liman
#14. Finding original source material is not easy, but when something special like 'Edge of Tomorrow' comes along, everybody recognized it. I wasn't swimming against the stream. Warner Brothers immediately supported it, Tom Cruise signed on instantly; Emily Blunt, who was our first choice, signed on immediately. #Quote by Doug Liman
Choice quotes by James Bay
#15. The Internet is the Wild West of the world, where anybody can throw anything down. Everything can be as relevant as the next thing; it doesn't matter who posts it. In that environment, the Critics' Choice is still very important. #Quote by James Bay
Choice quotes by Isaac B. Singer
#16. We must believe in free will. We have no choice. #Quote by Isaac B. Singer
Choice quotes by Ali Wong
#17. I also understood why my mom wasn't into processing her feelings, and how she was taught to just get over tragedy. To survive, she had to believe things like depression and allergies were a choice. #Quote by Ali Wong
Choice quotes by Zara Phillips
#18. I realized that I had to rebuild my foundation. I had a choice about how to see my life: I could look only at the negative or I could emphasise the positive. It took all the energy I could muster to accept that my miscarriage had happened for a reason. #Quote by Zara Phillips
Choice quotes by Eloisa James
#19. She was the only one who argued with Grace. 'He's not a good choice for you,' she insisted. 'He respects you too much.'
'Respect is good,' Grace said, thinking of how Colin slighted her letters. 'I want respect.'
'It's not enough.'
'He loves me!'
Not the right way.'
Finally Grace turned on her sister in a rage. 'Don't you see, Lily? Must you make me say this aloud? No one will ever love me in the /right/ way, not in that feverish way that men fall in love with you. I'm not that sort of woman!'
Lily cried, and Grace ended up crying, too. #Quote by Eloisa James
Choice quotes by Najwa Zebian
#20. Take responsibility.
Just as you can't deny that you can feel love and hate, happiness and sadness, anger and ease of mind, or tiredness and relaxation, you can't deny that you have a fate that, sometimes, you can't control. That doesn't mean that it takes control over you. You can't deny that you have words that need to be spoken. You can't deny that you have a choice. You can't deny the ability that you can say no. You can't deny the ability that you have the freedom to make a decision and defend it. You can't deny injustice when you see it, unfairness when you feel it, oppression when you witness it. Stop blaming the world around you for wronging you. Take responsibility for the nos you could have said but chose not to, the words you could have said but didn't, instead wrapping your mouth with your own hands and remaining silent against what needed to be addressed. Take responsibility for the choices you could have made but restrained yourself from making. #Quote by Najwa Zebian
Choice quotes by Gregory MacGuire
#21. Children's lives are fiendishly hard. Adults, having survived childhood, turn their minds to the future, and if they have a choice, generally retain only the rosiest of childhood memories. #Quote by Gregory MacGuire
Choice quotes by Jacoby Ellsbury
#22. I weighed the pros and cons of both, and college outweighed the pro ranks at the time and I'm definitely glad I made the choice to come to Oregon State because I'm a better player for it. #Quote by Jacoby Ellsbury
Choice quotes by J. Loren Norris
#23. Core values serve as a lighthouse when the fog of life seems to leave you wandering in circles; when you encounter that moment where every decision is a tough one and no choice seems to clearly be the better choice. #Quote by J. Loren Norris
Choice quotes by Michael O'Leary
#24. It's a great incentive to work long hours. I limit the holiday to two weeks and then get the hell back to the office. If I had my choice I wouldn't take holidays but my wife insists on time with the kids. That's enough. Prior to getting married I never took a holiday. #Quote by Michael O'Leary
Choice quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#25. Keep that in mind, and always remember that you have a choice to listen or to walk away because you are somebody special. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Choice quotes by Oscar Wilde
#26. I make a great difference between people. I choose my friends for their good looks, my acquaintances for their good characters, and my enemies for their good intellects. A man cannot be too careful in the choice of his enemies. I have not got one who is a fool. They are all men of some intellectual power, and consequently they all appreciate me. Is that very vain of me? I think it is rather vain. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Choice quotes by Melissa Palmer
#27. Nobody says when they're little, "Hey you know what, I think I'd like to be a basket case when I get older." Nobody sits down as a kid and hopes they can grow up to be a bitter, fall-down drunk or an agoraphobic doormat when they grow up. Everyone wants to be normal. But sometimes we don't have a choice. #Quote by Melissa Palmer
Choice quotes by Samuel Lover
#28. To return after long years of painful absence to some place which has been the scene of our former joys, and whence the force of circumstance, and not choice, has driven us, is oppressive to the heart. #Quote by Samuel Lover
Choice quotes by Adrian Rogers
#29. Forgiveness is not an emotion; it's a choice. #Quote by Adrian Rogers
Choice quotes by Angela Rockwood
#30. 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. #Quote by Angela Rockwood
Choice quotes by Robert B. Parker
#31. Conversation between Susan's therapist and Spenser -
"And when you find her? Then what?"
"Then she will be free again to come here and work with you until she can make the choices she wishes to make."
"And what if you are not that choice?"
"I think I will be. But I can't control that. What I can do is see that she's free to choose. #Quote by Robert B. Parker
Choice quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#32. Don't be led by the opinions of others. Listen to your sacred voice. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Choice quotes by Patrick Marber
#33. That's the most stupid expression in the world. 'I fell in love' - as if you had no choice. There's a moment, there's always a moment; I can do this, I can give in to this or I can resist it. I don't know when your moment was but I bet there was one. #Quote by Patrick Marber
Choice quotes by J.R. Ward
#34. Destiny was a machine built over time, each choice that you made in life adding another gear, another conveyor belt, another assemblyman. Where you ended up was the product that was spit out at the end - and there was no going back for a redo. You couldn‟t take a peek at what you‟d manufactured and decide, Oh, wait, I wanted to make sewing machines instead of machine guns; let me go back to the beginning and start again. One shot. That was all you got. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Choice quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#35. Don't you see, Doctor?" said Lasher. "The machines are to practically everbody what the white men were to the Indians. People are finding that, because of the way the machines are changing the world, more and more of their old values don't apply any more. People have no choice but to become second-rate machines themselves, or wards of the machines. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Choice quotes by Hilaire Belloc
#36. He [the poet] brings out the inner part of things and presents them to men in such a way that they cannot refuse but must accept it. But how the mere choice and rhythm of words should produce so magical an effect no one has yet been able to comprehend, and least of all the poets themselves. #Quote by Hilaire Belloc
Choice quotes by David Rodigan
#37. My heart goes out to DJs who are governed entirely by playlists. Being allowed the freedom of choice, that - for me - is what makes radio special. #Quote by David Rodigan
Choice quotes by Andrea Portes
#38. I mean it's like trying to decide between James Dean and Elvis. Seriously, who could make that choice? #Quote by Andrea Portes
Choice quotes by Steven Erikson
#39. As far as Gu'Rull could determine, the only virtue humans possessed was a talent for starting over, with stern resolve restored in the sudden glow of renewed optimism, in complete disregard of whatever lessons past failures might offer. And he had no choice but to acknowledge the power of that virtue. It is contingent upon collective amnesia, but as everyone knows, stupidity needs no excuse to repeat itself. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Choice quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#40. What influences, directs, or determines, the mind or will, to such a conclusion or choice as it does form? #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Choice quotes by Amit Ray
#41. Cultivate the habit of making aware choice. Your choice makes your destiny. Do not be carried away by the unconscious choices. #Quote by Amit Ray
Choice quotes by Peter Kreeft
#42. God writes the story of our lives with the pen strokes of our own free choices. #Quote by Peter Kreeft
Choice quotes by The Wall Street Journal
#43. Instead of saying "I don't have time" try saying "it's not a priority," and see how that feels. Often, that's a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don't want to. But other things are harder. Try it: "I'm not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it's not a priority." "I don't go to the doctor because my health is not a priority." If these phrases don't sit well, that's the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don't like how we're spending an hour, we can choose differently. #Quote by The Wall Street Journal
Choice quotes by Timothy Pina
#44. We are given one life. It's up to us to make it great or not. Average or spectacular. The choice is always up to us. #Quote by Timothy Pina
Choice quotes by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto
#45. We(Pakistan) will eat grass, even go hungry, but we will get one of our own (Atom bomb) ... We have no other choice! #Quote by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto
Choice quotes by Samuel P. Huntington
#46. The West is and will remain for years to come the most powerful civilization. Yet its power relative to that of other civilizations is declining. As the West attempts to assert its values and to protect its interests, non-Western societies confront a choice. Some attempt to emulate the West and to join or to "bandwagon" with the West. Other Confucian and Islamic societies attempt to expand their own economic and military power to resist and to "balance" against the West. A central axis of post--Cold War world politics is thus the interaction of Western power and culture with the power and culture of non-Western civilizations.

In sum, the post--Cold War world is a world of seven or eight major civilizations. Cultural commonalities and differences shape the interests, antagonisms, and associations of states. The most important countries in the world come overwhelmingly from different civilizations. The local conflicts most likely to escalate into broader wars are those between groups and states from different civilizations. The predominant patterns of political and economic development differ from civilization to civilization. The key issues on the international agenda involve differences among civilizations. Power is shifting from the long predominant West to non-Western civilizations. Global politics has become multipolar and multicivilizational. #Quote by Samuel P. Huntington
Choice quotes by J. Sterling
#47. Who we loved wasn't always a choice. Sometimes it was an irresistible pull, a gravitational force, something we couldn't see or control that drew us toward another. Sure, we could try to fight it. But in the end, love always won because it didn't fight fair. It had a secret weapon, a tool of sheer force to use against us - our heart. And once that son of a bitch got involved, you could kiss away all options you thought might exist. #Quote by J. Sterling
Choice quotes by Anne Truitt
#48. Perhaps the human lesson is always submission. We have a choice: to rebel or to recognize our powerlessness while maintaining our faith. #Quote by Anne Truitt
Choice quotes by Calista Flockhart
#49. I think that the character that I'm playing now is so fundamentally different than Ally that I haven't I haven't felt like I had to worry about it at all. But I definitely wanted to make a different choice. #Quote by Calista Flockhart
Choice quotes by Robert Galbraith
#50. Keeping busy was the only answer: action had always been his drug of choice. #Quote by Robert Galbraith
Choice quotes by Robert Pogue Harrison
#51. Our basic human institutions - religion, matrimony, and burial, also law, language, literature, and whatever else relies on the transmission of legacy - are authored, always and from the very start, by those who cam before. The awareness of death that defines human nature is inseparable from - indeed, it arises from, our awareness that we are not self-authored, that we follow in the footsteps of the dead. . . .
Nonhuman species obey the law of vitality, but humanity in its distinctive features is through and through necrocratic. Whether we are conscious of it or not we do the will of the ancestors; their precedents are our law; we submit to their dictates, even when we rebel against them. Our diligence, hardihood, rectitude, and heroism, but also our folly, spite, rancor, and pathologies, are so many signatures of the dead on the contracts that seal our identities. We inherit their obsessions; assume their burdens; carry on their causes; promote their mentalities, ideologies, and very often their superstitions; and often we die trying to vindicate their humiliations.
Why this servitude? We have no choice. Only the dead can grant us legitimacy. Left to ourselves we all bastards. #Quote by Robert Pogue Harrison
Choice quotes by Lindsay J. Pryor
#52. If only the choice of whom you fall for were that easy. None of us choose who we love, Jask. If it were about reason and logic and choice, it would be science, not emotion. It would stop being magic. #Quote by Lindsay J. Pryor
Choice quotes by Darryl Pinckney
#53. Freedom is having real choice. This offers a limited amount of choices. This is participating in a very imperfect system that we're desperately hanging onto, that we don't want to see further eroded. #Quote by Darryl Pinckney
Choice quotes by Karin Slaughter
#54. There was no part of this house that felt inviting. Paul's cold, calculating hand could be seen behind every choice. The concrete on the entryway floor was polished to a dark mirror straight out of Snow White. The spiral stairs looked like a robot's asshole. The endless white walls made Lydia feel like she was trapped inside a straightjacket. The sooner she was out of here the better. #Quote by Karin Slaughter
Choice quotes by Lee L Jampolsky
#55. When we combine acceptance with self-responsibility we can then see that whenever we are in a painful or disturbing situation we have two choices: We can work compassionately to bring something positive to the situation or leave. However, the key is the mental stance that we make the choice from, and thus the first step is always accepting the moment without resistance. #Quote by Lee L Jampolsky
Choice quotes by Vanessa Kerry
#56. It wasn't until two or three years ago that I actually learned that in the end he actually did kill someone. But that was a choice that he faced: to kill or be killed. #Quote by Vanessa Kerry
Choice quotes by Lynn Steward
#57. As she looked in the full-length mirror in her dressing room, she added a few ropes of pearls, pinned a white silk camellia, and draped the Chantilly lace shawl. In that moment, Dana thought of fashion's most enduring icon who created this elegant and alluring style, and the happy personal life that eluded her. Mademoiselle Chanel died in 1971 at the age of eighty-eight while working on her spring collection, but her passion for work did not fill the void of marriage and children. Her success was costly, but clearly the choice of an uncompromising woman determined to achieve greatness on her own. She once said, I never wanted to weigh more heavily on a man than a bird. #Quote by Lynn Steward
Choice quotes by David Tall
#58. Instead of proving all possible theorems in an axiomatic system (which Kurt Gödel showed is not possible), professional mathematicians continue to use a formal presentation of mathematics to specify and prove many theorems that are amenable to the formalist paradigm. This has generated a vast corpus of formal theory.
Controversies continue unresolved. Some mathematicians continue to insist on giving explicit constructions of mathematical entities, and do not allow proof by contradiction. This is a valid approach in its own right with much to recommend it. In the end, however, the choice that is likely to lead to the greater conquests is the one that offers the greater power and at the moment, it is David Hilbert's formalism that continues to predominate, while steadily being expanded as mathematics expands."

-David Tall (2013, p. 246) thinks though Formalism (mathematics) may have Lost the Battle it Still may Win the War. #Quote by David Tall
Choice quotes by Vikram Seth
#59. Voices
Voices in my head,
Chanting, 'Kisses. Bread.
Prove yourself. Fight. Shove.
Learn. Earn. Look for love',
Drown a lesser voice,
Silent now of choice:
'Breathe in peace, and be
Still, for once, like me'. #Quote by Vikram Seth
Choice quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#60. I am not fully informed of the practices at Harvard, but there is one from which we shall certainly vary, although it has been copied, I believe, by nearly every college and academy in the United States. That is, the holding the students all to one prescribed course of reading, and disallowing exclusive application to those branches only which are to qualify them for the particular vocations to which they are destined. We shall, on the contrary, allow them uncontrolled choice in the lectures they shall choose to attend, and require elementary qualification only, and sufficient age. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Choice quotes by Mitchell Zuckoff
#61. Fear is something I don't think you experience unless you have a choice. If you have a choice, then you're liable to be afraid. But without a choice, what is there to be afraid of? You just go along doing what has to be done. #Quote by Mitchell Zuckoff
Choice quotes by Kristine Carlson
#62. All pain in life comes from wishing things were different than they are. Conversely, peace and happiness must come from accepting life as it is and breaking through the barriers of illusion to do so ... All things that we label good or bad often hold in them surprises if we stay open. Each of us has choice in how we interpret life's events and in this way we are each responsible for our own reality. #Quote by Kristine Carlson
Choice quotes by Paul Mason
#63. By this definition we are in the middle of a revolution: something wider than a pure political overthrow and narrower than the classic social revolutions of the twentieth century. Out of the very values and practices of free-market capitalism - individualism, choice, respect for human rights, the network, the flattened hierarchy - the masses have developed a new collective practice. They can bypass and supersede the machinery of power via, as Gorz predicted, an 'alternative network of relations'. #Quote by Paul Mason
Choice quotes by Daniel Webster
#64. 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. #Quote by Daniel Webster
Choice quotes by Marc Faber
#65. This is the choice in life. You choose what is less bad. I don't particularly like Mr. Obama, but I think he is less bad for the world than Mr. Romney. It is a tragedy of life that both candidates did not lose the election. They would have deserved both to lose. #Quote by Marc Faber
Choice quotes by Ally Condie
#66. In the forest, I thought I'd made the wrong choice. I thought she had the Tennyson poem because it was a Rising poem, and I'd missed my chance to be in the rebellion with her. #Quote by Ally Condie
Choice quotes by Panache Desai
#67. When you are embodying your Essential Self, any choice you make is the right one, in all scenarios. There is no room for complaints or uncertainty. #Quote by Panache Desai
Choice quotes by Andy Andrews
#68. In times of adversity, you don't have a problem to deal with; you have a choice to make. #Quote by Andy Andrews
Choice quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#69. They looted your public and corporate treasuries, and turned your industries over to nincompoops," he said. "Then they had your Government borrow so heavily from us that we had no choice but to send over an Army of Occupation in business suits. Never before has the Ruling Class of a country found a way to stick other countries with all the responsibilities their wealth might imply, and still remain rich beyond the dreams of avarice! No wonder they thought the comatose Ronald Reagan was a great President! #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Choice quotes by Henry Kissinger
#70. To undertake a journey on a road never before traveled requires character and courage: character because the choice is not obvious; courage because the road will be lonely at first. #Quote by Henry Kissinger
Choice quotes by Lindy West
#71. When faced with a choice between an incriminating truth or a flattering lie, America's ruling class has been choosing the lie for four hundred years. White Americans hunger for plausible deniability and swaddle themselves in it and always have - for the sublime relief of deferred responsibility, the soft violence of willful ignorance, the barbaric fiction of rugged individualism. The worst among us have deployed it to seduce and herd the vast, complacent center: It's okay. You didn't do anything wrong. You earned everything you have. Benefiting from genocide is fine if it was a long time ago. The scientists will figure out climate change. The cat's name is Tardar Sauce. We have to kick this addition if we're going to give our children any kind of future. #Quote by Lindy West
Choice quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#72. the sun has always been my drug of choice. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Choice quotes by Alice Sebold
#73. As she stood in the darkened room and watched my sister and father, I knew one of things that heaven meant. I had a choice, and it was not to divide my family in my heart. #Quote by Alice Sebold
Choice quotes by Antonin Scalia
#74. But I'm not pro death penalty. I - I'm just anti the notion that it is not a matter for democratic choice, that it has been taken away from the democratic choice of the people by a provision of the Constitution. #Quote by Antonin Scalia
Choice quotes by Denise Hunter
#75. Maybe he should go after her. Maybe he hadn't tried hard enough. Maybe she was missing him as much as he missed her. Finding her would be a challenge, but that had never stopped him before. Surely she'd left a forwarding address with the post office. But no. That's what her psycho, controlling late husband would have done: hunt her down. She needed to be free to make her own choice. And she had. #Quote by Denise Hunter
Choice quotes by William Glasser
#76. Choice Theory explains that, for all practical purposes, we choose everything we do. #Quote by William Glasser
Choice quotes by Tom Robbins
#77. If every time we choose a turd, society, at a great expense, simply allows us to redeem it for a pepperoni, then not only will we never learn to make smart choices, we will also surrender the freedom to choose, because a choice without consequences is no choice at all. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Choice quotes by Lauren DeStefano
#78. There is no choice for him but to believe. He has nothing left to give in offering. #Quote by Lauren DeStefano
Choice quotes by H.D. Smith
#79. She shoved me against the wall, pulling a knife from her belt and pressing it against my throat. "Who are you?" she hissed.
I winced as the blade drew a line of blood on my flesh. I considered my options. Queen of the Fallen, no. Enemy to your children, no. "I'm Claire, the Devil's assistant," I answered, deciding on the simplest choice. #Quote by H.D. Smith
Choice quotes by Saul Perlmutter
#80. It is a tough choice between ending up in the cold or ending up in a fiery blast. #Quote by Saul Perlmutter
Choice quotes by Ali Harris
#81. Is there such a thing as a life without any regrets? I've never believed so. We spend our lives aiming for happiness and fulfilment in work, in love and with our friends and family, and yet often our energy is spent lamenting bad boyfriends, wrong career turns, fallouts with friends and opportunities missed. Or is that just me? I admit I'm naturally a glass-half-empty kind of girl, but I know regrets are a burden to happiness and I'm trying to let go of them because I've learned that it's all about choice. You can choose to turn regrets into lessons that change your future. Believe me when I say I'm really trying to do this. But the truth is, I'm failing. Because all I can think right now is: maybe I deserve it. Maybe this is my penance. #Quote by Ali Harris
Choice quotes by Kandi Steiner
#82. I'm wondering if this was the right choice. This campus is crawling with walking, talking Barbies. #Quote by Kandi Steiner
Choice quotes by Saad Salman
#83. Choosing the right career is the most difficult task for a person who is multi-talented and versatile. Because its hard to decide what field to go into, when you are good at too many things. #Quote by Saad Salman
Choice quotes by Richard Kadrey
#84. The universe is a meat grinder and we're just pork in designer shoes, keeping busy so we can pretend we're not all headed for the sausage factory. Maybe I've been hallucinating this whole time and there is no Heaven and Hell. Instead of having to choose between God and the devil, maybe our only real choice comes down to link or patty? #Quote by Richard Kadrey
Choice quotes by Ronald H. Coase
#85. But a theory is not like an airline or bus timetable. We are not interested simply in the accuracy of its predictions. A theory also serves as a base for thinking. It helps us to understand what is going on by enabling us to organize our thoughts. Faced with a choice between a theory which predicts well but gives us little insight into how the system works and one which gives us this insight but predicts badly, I would choose the latter, and I am inclined to think that most economists would do the same. #Quote by Ronald H. Coase
Choice quotes by Craig Claiborne
#86. Give me a platter of choice finnan haddie, freshly cooked in its bath of water and milk, add melted butter, a slice or two of hot toast, a pot of steaming Darjeeling tea, and you may tell the butler to dispense with the caviar, truffles and nightingales' tongues. #Quote by Craig Claiborne
Choice quotes by Emily Fridlund
#87. He said if he were lucky enough to get back to the car, it would be because of Lily's kindness and mercy. He wanted her to know how grateful he was - in advance. Before he unzipped his pants, before he said just a kiss and pushed her down, he wanted her to know she had a choice. #Quote by Emily Fridlund
Choice quotes by Barry Schwartz
#88. At present, the potential causal role that the availability of choice has in making people into maximizers is pure speculation. If the speculation is correct, we ought to find that in cultures in which choice is less ubiquitous and extensive than it is in the U.S., there should be fewer maximizers. #Quote by Barry Schwartz
Choice quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#89. Young Noah: Will you go out with me?
Young Allie: What? No.
Young Noah: No ... ?
Young Allie: No.
Young Noah: Why not?
Young Allie: I dunno, because I don't want to.
Young Noah: OK, then you leave me no other choice.
Young Allie: AHHHH
Young Noah: I'm gonna ask you one more time, will you or will you not go out with me? I think my hand's slipping.
Young Allie: OK, OK. Fine I'll go out with you
Young Noah: No, don't do me any favors.
Young Allie: No, no I want to.
Young Noah: Say it.
Young Allie: I wanna go out with you.
Young Noah: Say it again.
Young Allie: I WANNA GO OUT WITH YOU!
Young Noah: All right, all right we'll go out. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Choice quotes by Max De Pree
#90. Everyone in a successful organization must be willing and ready to risk. Risk is like change; it's not a choice. #Quote by Max De Pree
Choice quotes by Stephen Hawking
#91. Economics is also an effective theory, based on the notion of free will plus the assumption that people evaluate their possible alternative courses of action and choose the best. That effective theory is only moderately successful in predicting behavior because, as we all know, decisions are often not rational or are based on a defective analysis of the consequences of the choice. This is why the world is in such a mess. #Quote by Stephen Hawking
Choice quotes by Terry Goodkind
#92. Reason. The first law of reason is this: what exists, exists; what is, is. From this irreducible, bedrock principle, all knowledge is built. This is the foundation from which life is embraced. Reason is a choice. Wishes and whims are not facts, nor are they a means to discovering them. Reason is our only way of grasping reality - it's our basic tool of survival. We are free to evade the effort of thinking, to reject reason, but we are not free to avoid the penalty of the abyss we refuse to see. #Quote by Terry Goodkind
Choice quotes by Richard Castle
#93. I wish the choice I have to make today was so simple. I realise I have the choice to believe in two terrible things. Either Damian is a murderer or Beckett arrested an innocent man.
Just thinking about it is making my head hurt.
Well then forget your head, listen to your heart. #Quote by Richard Castle
Choice quotes by Joseph O'Connor
#94. That each man is the sum of his choices is nothing less than the truth. And each, perhaps, is also something else. #Quote by Joseph O'Connor
Choice quotes by Prince Harry
#95. I am very sorry if I have caused any offence. It was a poor choice of costume. #Quote by Prince Harry
Choice quotes by Laozi
#96. Weapons are not proper instruments for gentle people; they use them only when they have no other choice. Peace and quiet are what they value. They do not glory in victory. #Quote by Laozi
Choice quotes by Elizabeth Bowen
#97. The way one is envisaged by other people - what easier way is there of envisaging oneself? There is a fatalism in one's acceptance of it. Solitude is not the solution, one feels followed. Choice - choice of those who are to surround one, choice of those most likely to see you rightly - is the only escape. #Quote by Elizabeth Bowen
Choice quotes by Suchet Chaturvedi
#98. Everyone who's born has a mysterious life path to follow. We must live to find that one reason to live #Quote by Suchet Chaturvedi
Choice quotes by Kat Banyard
#99. ...so individuals have their flesh cut and pulled, surgery companies proclaim it as an empowering choice, and the stifling cultural ideals about women's appearance are left unscathed #Quote by Kat Banyard
Choice quotes by Alex Steffen
#100. Americans trash the planet not because we're evil, but because the industrial systems we've devised leave no other choice. Our ranch houses and high-rises, factories and farms, freeways and power plants were conceived before we had a clue how the planet works. #Quote by Alex Steffen
Choice quotes by Mandy Hubbard
#101. My happiness doesn't rely on other people. It doesn't depend on them needing me, wanting me, approving of me. It's inside me, just where it was when I was little and My Little Pony reigned supreme, before life got twisted and turned upside down, before
everyone else moved on and left me behind. Somehow I lost the power to be happy, but I'm taking it back. Starting today. Today, I choose me. #Quote by Mandy Hubbard
Choice quotes by Catherynne M. Valente
#102. ...while epic fantasy is based on the fairy tale of the just war, that's not one you'll find in Grimm or Disney, and most will never recognize the shape of it. I think the fantasy genre pitches its tent in the medieval campground for the very reason that we even bother to write stories about things that never happened in the first place: because it says something subtle and true about our own world, something it is difficult to say straight out, with a straight face. Something you need tools to say, you need cheat codes for the human brain--a candy princess or a sugar-coated unicorn to wash down the sour taste of how bad things can really get.

See, I think our culture has a slash running through the middle of it, too. Past/Future, Conservative/Liberal, Online/Offline. Virgin/Whore. And yes: Classical/Medieval. I think we're torn between the Classical Narrative of Self and the Medieval Narrative of Self, between the choice of Achilles and Keep Calm and Carry On.

The Classical internal monologue goes like this: do anything, anything, only don't be forgotten. Yes, this one sacrificed his daughter on a slab at Aulis, that one married his mother and tore out his eyes, and oh that guy ate his kids in a pie. But you remember their names, don't you? So it's all good in the end. Give a Greek soul a choice between a short life full of glory and a name echoing down the halls of time and a long, gentle life full of children and a quiet sort of virtue, and he'll alwa #Quote by Catherynne M. Valente
Choice quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#103. We don't have to look like everyone else...and act like everyone else. We've got a choice. We can grow up any way we want...It's about becoming what I want to become, not what some surgical committee thinks I should. #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
Choice quotes by Jeff Goins
#104. What you leave behind for posterity isn't a decision you make on your deathbed. It's a choice that happens right now with the resources available at this very moment. #Quote by Jeff Goins
Choice quotes by Lance Armstrong
#105. If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or Fight Like Hell. #Quote by Lance Armstrong
Choice quotes by Judith-Victoria Douglas
#106. Few understand that horses are never truly domesticated. Their instincts are always there and readily take over once they are free. They stay or return to us by their choice, not the compulsion forced upon them.
Once realized you must also recognize only kindness will prevail to make a partner of an animal who'd prefer only the company of his kind and the freedom of wide open spaces. Any other relationship is based on the inadequacies of the tormentor on the tormented. One will lose. It's always the horse, for even if he wins his defensive battle the mark of rogue will remain.
It's been witnessed how a mustang will give up his life if his freedom can't be regained when in the grip of adversity. There's so much for us to learn from this, if we'd only learn to listen to their message. #Quote by Judith-Victoria Douglas
Choice quotes by Dan Millman
#107. Choice means giving up something you want for something else you want more. #Quote by Dan Millman
Choice quotes by Christy Whitman
#108. When we find ourselves living in a situation that looks good from the outside but no longer brings us inner joy, we can choose one of two paths: we can deny or repress our discontent and "shrink" ourselves so we continue to fit into a life that is too small or no longer serves us; or we can embrace the new direction our soul is urging us toward, and make the choice not to shrink, but to stretch. #Quote by Christy Whitman
Choice quotes by Martin Heidegger
#109. How one encounters reality is a choice. #Quote by Martin Heidegger
Choice quotes by La'el Collins
#110. When you have been to the lowest part of your life, you have no choice but to sit back and just think about things. You just pay attention to so much more. #Quote by La'el Collins
Choice quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#111. Courage isn't the absence of fear, it's the choice that something else is greater than that fear. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Choice quotes by Susan Fletcher
#112. I told her that letting go is not a choice, in many ways. You try to move on, perhaps. But it comes of its own accord, in the end; it happens when it is ready to, and it mostly comes by without announcement or being noticed at all. I'll always miss my husband. I won't ever be the person I was before ... You don't mend fully, I tell her. But you mend enough, in time. #Quote by Susan Fletcher
Choice quotes by Michael Grant
#113. Do you love me?" Diana asked.
Caine's eyes widened. She could actually see him twitch. Like a startled animal. Like a rabbit who had just heard a fox.
"It's a yes or no question," Diana said acidly. "But I'll accept a nod or a shake of the head or an incoherent grunt."
"I . . . I don't know what you mean by that," Caine said lamely.
"When I jumped off the cliff, you saved me even though it meant letting Sanjit and the others escape."
"You didn't give me much choice," Caine said peevishly. "You had a choice. You wanted to destroy them."
"Okay."
"Why did you make that choice?"
Caine swallowed and seemed to find his palms sweaty since he rubbed them on his sides.
Diana walked to the door. She unlocked it and held it open. "Go away," she said. "Come back when you figure out your answer. #Quote by Michael Grant
Choice quotes by Noel Fielding
#114. I had always drawn, every day as long as I had held a pencil, and just assumed everyone else had too ... Art had saved me and helped me fit in ... Art was always my saving grace ... Comedy didn't come until much later for me. I've always tried to combine the two things, art and comedy, and couldn't make a choice between the two. It was always my ambition to make comedy with an art-school slant, and art that could be funny instead of po-faced. #Quote by Noel Fielding
Choice quotes by J.T. Geissinger
#115. People make the mistake of thinking that experiencing an emotion means you have to do something about it. In fact, you don't have to do anything with your emotions at all. You can simply acknowledge them as they arrive – oh, look, that old bitch Envy is back again – then go about your business.
It's the clinging to emotion that causes suffering … A wiser choice is to let it go and breathe. #Quote by J.T. Geissinger
Choice quotes by Bryant McGill
#116. Every moment you are open, as a humble student, you are surrounded with infinite possibilities of choice. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Choice quotes by Anthony Burgess
#117. You have no cause to grumble boy. You made your choice and all this is a consequence of your choice. Whatever now ensues is what you yourself have chosen. #Quote by Anthony Burgess
Choice quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#118. Dr. Jubal Harshaw, professional clown, amateur subversive, and parasite by choice, had long attempted to eliminate "hurry" and all related emotions from his pattern. Being aware that he had but a short time left to live and having neither Martian nor Kansan faith in his own immortality, it was his purpose to live each golden moment as if it were eternity - without fear, without hope, but with sybaritic gusto. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Choice quotes by Jeanne Kalogridis
#119. How could you ever have loved a man so cruel?'
Trusia lifted her chin at that, and regarded me intensely; her voice held a trace of indignance, and I understood that the depth of her love for my father transcended all else. 'You speak as though I had a choice,' she said. #Quote by Jeanne Kalogridis
Choice quotes by Adam Grant
#120. Every time we interact with another person at work, we have a choice to make: do we try to claim as much value as we can, or contribute value without worrying about what we receive in return? #Quote by Adam Grant
Choice quotes by Mark Andrew Poe
#121. Our ability to choose is sacred. It's what makes humans special. #Quote by Mark Andrew Poe
Choice quotes by Cassandra Clare
#122. And if I don't help you?"

Jace spread his hands wide. The rune tattoos on his palms stood out stark and black. "Maybe nothing. Maybe a visit from the Silent City."

Magnus's voice was honey poured over shards of ice. "That's quite a choice you're offering me, little Shadowhunter. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Choice quotes by Wendy Owens
#123. Gabe realized he was standing there alone, with a goofy smile on his face. Limping inside, he closed the door behind him, her words still lingering in his mind. Gabe wanted more than anything to be able to choose happiness. He wanted a rain storm to make him smile. He desired that the simple task of cooking would make him dance. To Gabe, however, it didn't seem as simple as just making a choice. He hoped her joy was contagious, because he was in uncharted territories. #Quote by Wendy Owens
Choice quotes by Louise Blackwick
#124. It is only through an altered state of consciousness that a lesser being can see into the invisible and the immaterial. In our understanding, middling, certain substances are known to alter the manner a choice has been made. Some drugs will make one decide things one normally would not.'
'And choices are our domain,' explained another Master. 'The fabric of reality is stringed together by the unseen Threads of choice and consequence. As actors, storytellers and audience of reality, we cannot afford reality to unwire. #Quote by Louise Blackwick
Choice quotes by James Gleick
#125. A bit, the smallest unit of information, the fundamental particle of information theory, is a choice, yes or no, on or off. It's a choice that you can embody in electrical circuits, and it is thanks to that that we have all this ubiquitous computing. #Quote by James Gleick
Choice quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#126. Young Tchitcherine was the one who brought up political narcotics. Opiates of the people.

Wimpe smiled back. An old, old smile to chill even the living fire in Earth's core. "Marxist dialectics? That's not an opiate, eh?"

"It's the antidote."

"No." It can go either way. The dope salesman may know everything that's ever going to happen to Tchitcherine, and decide it's no use - or, out of the moment's velleity, lay it right out for the young fool.

"The basic problem," he proposes, "has always been getting other people to die for you. What's worth enough for a man to give up his life? That's where religion had the edge, for centuries. Religion was always about death. It was used not as an opiate so much as a technique - it got people to die for one particular set of beliefs about death. Perverse, natürlich, but who are you to judge? It was a good pitch while it worked. But ever since it became impossible to die for death, we have had a secular version - yours. Die to help History grow to its predestined shape. Die knowing your act will bring will bring a good end a bit closer. Revolutionary suicide, fine. But look: if History's changes are inevitable, why not not die? Vaslav? If it's going to happen anyway, what does it matter?"

"But you haven't ever had the choice to make, have you."

"If I ever did, you can be sure - "

"You don't know. Not till you're there, Wimpe. You can't say."

Choice quotes by John T. Sonne
#128. They needed a date. They had been saying that for months. He would give her a date. He imagined grandiose affairs with fine clothes and elaborate food in luxurious surroundings. A film of her choice or a couple hours in a bookstore would have suited her, and him. This weekend would pass like all the others. Time would steadily work its way past them. Monday would bring another airplane. #Quote by John T. Sonne
Choice quotes by Emily Thorne
#129. Some say that our lives are defined by the sum of our choices. But it isn't really our choices that distinguish who we are. It's our commitment to them. #Quote by Emily Thorne
Choice quotes by Elizabeth Lim
#130. All they could do was flutter their fans and bat their eyes. The matchmaker Mother hired bragged that they were perfect porcelain dolls. What she didn't say was they had no minds of their own." Shang grimaced at the memory without looking at her. "They'd say anything to make me like them."
How familiar that sounds. Mulan put her hands on her hips. "Not all girls are like that. You have to look at it from their perspective, too. Girls are raised to be pretty and graceful, and quiet." She made a face. "They aren't allowed to speak their minds, and they don't have a choice in who they marry. My parents were lucky that they fell in love, but their marriage was arranged, too. And my mother, she doesn't even belong to her family anymore after they got married. It wasn't my mother's decision, but her family's. They told her that a woman's only role in life is to bear sons."
Shang leaned forward. "You sound quite passionate about this."
His closeness made Mulan hunch back. Remembering who she was pretending to be, she felt her cheeks burn. "I just... I mean, I bet there are some girls who'd make better soldiers than boys. If they were given the chance."
"A female soldier? That's the craziest thing I've heard."
"Girls can be strong, too."
"Not like us, Ping."
Mulan hid a smile. "You'd be surprised. #Quote by Elizabeth Lim
Choice quotes by Sheena Iyengar
#131. Whether we do it consciously or subconsciously, we tend to organize our lives to display our identity as accurately as possible. Our lifestyle choices often reveal our values, or at least what we'd like people to perceive as our values ... as we make our everyday choices, we continuously calculate not just which choices best match who we are and what we want but also how those choices will be interpreted by others. We look for cues in our social environment to figure out what others think of this or that, which can require being sensitive to the most localized and up-to-date details of what a particular choice means. #Quote by Sheena Iyengar
Choice quotes by J.D. Salinger
#132. If only you'd remember before ever you sit down to write that you've been a reader long before you were ever a writer. You simply fix that fact in your mind, then sit very still and ask yourself, as a reader, what piece of writing in all the world Buddy Glass would most want to read if he had his heart's choice. The next step is terrible, but so simple I can hardly believe it as I write it. You just sit down shamelessly and write the thing yourself. I won't even underline that. It's too important to be underlined. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Choice quotes by Elizabeth Lesser
#133. Every day we're given a choice: We can relax and float in the direction that the water flows, or we can swim hard against it. If we go with the river, the energy of a thousand mountain streams will be with us ... if we resist the river, we will feel rankled and tired as we tread water, stuck in the same place. #Quote by Elizabeth Lesser
Choice quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#134. Our ancestors ... possessed a right, which nature has given to all men, of departing from the country in which chance, not choice has placed them. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Choice quotes by Hugh Jackman
#135. I don't think I knew how going to Ethiopia would affect my life, through a very simple choice of buying fair-trade coffee, we can take part in change. #Quote by Hugh Jackman
Choice quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#136. They could do anything. That, however, was part of what made it difficult to bring [it] to a close. Infinite possibility was going to collapse, in the act of choosing, to the single world line of history. The future becoming the past: there was something disappointing in this passage through the loom, this so-sudden diminution from infinity to one, the collapse from potentiality to reality which was the action of time itself. The potential was so delicious - the way they could have, potentially, all the best parts of all...time, combined magically into some superb, as-yet-unseen synthesis - or throw all that aside, and finally strike a new path to the heart of just government. . . .To go from that to the mundane problematic...was an inevitable letdown, and instinctively people put it off. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Choice quotes by Fernando Canale
#137. The history of philosophy tells us we have a choice between viewing reason as timeless or as historical, but reason itself is unable to tell us which option is correct.... Since we cannot know whether we began with a correct understanding of reason itself, any philosophy based on reason must be hypothetical. This point is known as the limits of reason. According to postmodern thinkers, reason is not only unable to reach absolute truth, but it is grounded on what is called an exclusive disjunction; it must be one or the other, and cannot be conclusively demonstrated to be either. Since it is based on reason in one view or the other, philosophy can never offer anything but hypothetical explanations of reality, and certainly not absolute truth. #Quote by Fernando Canale
Choice quotes by Stephanie Coontz
#138. The Victorians did not have some secret formula, since lost, about how to expect the best of marriage and still put up with the worst. Rather, they were much more accepting than we are today of a huge gap between rhetoric and reality, expectation and actual experience. In large part, this was because they had no other choice. #Quote by Stephanie Coontz
Choice quotes by Lillian Hellman
#139. Old paint on canvas, as it ages, sometimes becomes transparent. When that happens it is possible, in some pictures, to see the original lines: a tree will show through a woman's dress, a child makes way for a dog, a large boat is no longer on an open sea. That is called pentimento because the painter 'repented', changed his mind. Perhaps it would be as well to say that the old conception, replaced by a later choice, is a way of seeing and then seeing again. #Quote by Lillian Hellman
Choice quotes by Ken Thompson
#140. FORTRAN was the language of choice for the same reason that three-legged races are popular. #Quote by Ken Thompson
Choice quotes by Neil M. Gunn
#141. In a few moments he came into the core of himself, where he was alone, and felt strangely companioned, not by anyone or anything, but by himself. The rejected self found refuge here, not a cowed refuge, but somehow a wandering ease; as if it were indestructible, and had its own final pride, its own secret eyes. #Quote by Neil M. Gunn
Choice quotes by Richard Heinberg
#142. We are about to enter a new era in which, each year, less net energy will be available to humankind, regardless of our efforts or choices. The only significant choice we will have will be how we adjust to this new regime. That choice - not whether, but how to reduce energy usage and make a transition to renewable alternatives - will have profound ethical and political ramifications. #Quote by Richard Heinberg
Choice quotes by Debbie Ford
#143. With devotion at the center of your awareness, you don't have to refer to your past in order to make a choice of how to respond or react in any given situation. #Quote by Debbie Ford
Choice quotes by Roman Simonyan
#144. When everything becomes tangled, you should make the choice. #Quote by Roman Simonyan
Choice quotes by James P. Carse
#145. There is no narrative without structure, or plot. In a great story this structure seems like fate, like an inescapable judgment descending on its still unaware heroes, a great metaphysical causality, that crowds out all room for choice. Fate arises not as a limitation on our freedom, but as a manifestation of our freedom, testimony that choice is consequent. The exercise of your freedom cannot prevent the exercise of my own freedom, but it can determine the context in which I am to act freely. You cannot make choices for me, but you can largely determine what my choices will be about. Great stories explore the drama of this deeper touching of one free person by another. They are therefore genuinely sexual dramas astounding us once more with the magic of origins. #Quote by James P. Carse
Choice quotes by M.F. Moonzajer
#146. Freedom of religion is not enough; we need the extinction of it, because no one has turned to be a religious by their own choice. #Quote by M.F. Moonzajer
Choice quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#147. To know there is a choice is to have to make the choice: change or stay: river or rock. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Choice quotes by Michael Horton
#148. There are versions of the pro-gay and anti-gay agenda that assume a simplistic rather than simple understanding of the issue - at least from a biblical perspective. Reject it or embrace it: that's the easy choice that makes for great sound-bites but ruins lives. #Quote by Michael Horton
Choice quotes by Irvin D. Yalom
#149. Eternal recurrence means that every time you choose an action you must be willing to choose it for all eternity. And it is the same for every action not made, every stillborn thought, every choice avoided. And all unlived life will remain bulging inside you, unlived through all eternity. And the unheeded voice of your conscience will cry out to you forever. #Quote by Irvin D. Yalom
Choice quotes by John Denver
#150. Peace is a conscious choice. #Quote by John Denver
Choice quotes by Molly Friedenfeld

Choice quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#152. Jacob,
I'm breaking the rules by sending you this. She was afraid of hurting you, and she didn't want to make you feel obligated in any way. But I know that, if things had gone the other way, I would have wanted the choice.
I promise I will take care of her, Jacob. Thank you-for her- for everything.
Edward. #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Choice quotes by Bill Crawford
#153. 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. #Quote by Bill Crawford
Choice quotes by Thaddeus Golas
#154. No matter what your spiritual condition is, no matter where you find yourself in the universe, your choice is always the same: to expand your awareness or contract it. #Quote by Thaddeus Golas
Choice quotes by David Mitchell
#155. The words 'maybe' and 'perhaps' are literally the same - the flavor is the same, the educational level is the same. But you just know when to use maybe and when to use perhaps. I think it's because of this: You get to know the tastes or musical tastes of words themselves, and this informs your choice, whether you use them or not. #Quote by David Mitchell
Choice quotes by Katie Hafner
#156. But today I'm indifferent. And with this comes a glimmer of understanding: I can pick and choose what I absorb and what I deflect. This is how the color spectrum works: Some colors absorb light, while others deflect it, depending on where they are on the spectrum. Earlier in my life, when it came to hurtful words from my mother, I was more like an off-shade of brown, absorbing most of them. Now, with experience, wisdom, and a little more self-confidence, my spectrum is shifting. I'm making a choice to be less absorptive. And her comment... is one for which I choose to become pure white. #Quote by Katie Hafner
Choice quotes by Yevgeny Zamyatin
#157. Paradise,' he began, and the p meant a spray. 'The old legend about Paradise - that was about us, about right now. Yes! Just think about it. Those two in Paradise, they were offered a choice: happiness without freedom, or freedom without happiness, nothing else. Those idiots chose freedom. And then what? Then for centuries they were homesick for the chains. That's why the world was so miserable, see? They missed the chains. For ages! And we were the first to hit on the way to get back to happiness. No, wait ... listen to me. The ancient God and us, side by side, at the same table. Yes! We helped God finally overcome the Devil - because that's who it was that pushed people to break the commandment and taste freedom and be ruined. It was him, the wily serpent. But we gave him a boot to the head! Crack! And it was all over: Paradise was back. And we're simple and innocent again, like Adam and Eve. None of those complications about good and evil: Everything is very simple, childishly simple - Paradise! The Benefactor, the Machine, the Cube, the Gas Bell, the Guardians: All those things represent good, all that is sublime, splendid, noble, elevated, crystal pure. Because that is what protects our nonfreedom, which is to say, our happiness. #Quote by Yevgeny Zamyatin

You can eat it fast, or slow, the choice is up to you #Quote by Janelle R. Moore
Choice quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#159. How many people have I heard claim their children as the greatest accomplishment and comfort of their lives? It's the thing they can always lean on during a metaphysical crisis, or a moment of doubt about their relevancy - If I have done nothing else in this life, then at least I have raised my children well.

But what if, either by choice or by reluctant necessity, you end up not participating in this comforting cycle of family and continuity? What if you step out? Where do you sit at the reunion? How do you mark time's passage without the fear that you've just fritted away your time on earth without being relevant? You'll need to find another purpose, another measure by which to judge whether or not you have been a successful human being. I love children, but what if I don't have any? What kind of person does that make me?

Virginia Woolf wrote, "Across the broad continent of a woman's life falls the shadow of a sword." On one side of that sword, she said, there lies convention and tradition and order, where "all is correct." But on the other side of that sword, if you're crazy enough to cross it and choose a life that does not follow convention, "all is confusion. Nothing follows a regular course." Her argument was that the crossing of the shadow of that sword may bring a far more interesting existence to a woman, but you can bet it will also be more perilous. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert

Choice quotes by Andrzej Sapkowski
#165. And so,' smiled the Witcher, 'I have no choice? I have to enter into a pact with you, a pact which should someday become the subject of a painting, and become a sorcerer? Give me a break. I know a little about the theory of heredity. My father, as I discovered with no little difficulty, was a wanderer, a churl, a troublemaker and a swashbuckler. My genes on the spear side may be dominant over the genes on the distaff side. The fact that I can swash a buckler pretty well seems to confirm that. #Quote by Andrzej Sapkowski
Choice quotes by Jenny Lawson
#166. I control it by being painfully honest about just how crazy I am. I control it by allowing myself to hide in bathrooms and under tables during important events. And sometimes I control it by letting it control me, because I have no other choice. #Quote by Jenny Lawson

#167. It is in the darkest hour, when we are faced with our deepest most wrenching fears, that we are given the greatest strength. The choice is whether we succumb to the fear or rise with courage to face our truth and shine our brilliance as our sword of valor. #Quote by Monika Zands
Choice quotes by Katherine Applegate
#168. Someday, if we won, if humanity survived, we'd be in the history books. Me and Jake and Rachel and Cassie and Tobias and Ax. They'd be household names, like generals from World War II or the Civil War. Patton and Eisenhower, Ulysses Grant and Robert E. Lee. Kids would study us in school. Bored, probably.
And then the teacher would tell the story of Marco. I'd be a part of history. What I was about to do. Some kid would laugh. Some kid would say, "Cold, man. That was really cold."
I had to do it, kid. It was a war. It's the whole point, you stupid, smug, smirking little jerk! Don't you get it?
It was the whole point. We hurt the innocent in order to stop the evil. Innocent Hork-Bajir. Innocent Taxxons. Innocent human-Controllers. How else to stop the Yeerks? How else to win?
No choice, you punk. We did what we had to do.
"Cold, man. The Marco dude? He was just cold. #Quote by Katherine Applegate
Choice quotes by Ehsan Sehgal
#169. A vote holds not only a significant power; it also carries a key to a system, essence to the welfare, surety to the career of a future generation, and magnet to the stability of the state. The wrong choice or emotionally pledge and favour of the vote-casting can indeed victimize a voter itself as a consequence. Realize this power and use it wisely, disregarding all external influences and tricks. #Quote by Ehsan Sehgal
Choice quotes by Muammar Al-Gaddafi
#170. [The] type of education now prevailing all over the world is directed against human freedom. State-controlled education ... deprives people of their free choice, creativity and brilliance. #Quote by Muammar Al-Gaddafi
Choice quotes by Sarah Bird
#171. I want to go to the mother, take her hand, and tell her that although she and her daughter believe that every bad choice the daughter has ever made in life is her fault, it's not. It's really, really not. #Quote by Sarah Bird
Choice quotes by George Washington
#172. 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. #Quote by George Washington
Choice quotes by Debasish Mridha
#173. Have a choice, learn the process and then go for the success. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Choice quotes by Richard M. Nixon
#174. We are faced this year with the choice between the "work ethic" that built this Nation's character and the new "welfare ethic" that could cause that American character to weaken. #Quote by Richard M. Nixon
Choice quotes by Joan Robinson
#175. Where is the pricing system that offers the consumer a fair choice between air to breathe and motor cars to drive about in? #Quote by Joan Robinson
Choice quotes by Madonna Ciccone
#176. Living For Love single and remixes available in UK soon! Sorry you have to wait! Its not my decision or my choice! Thanks for your patience! # rebelheart # livingforlove #Quote by Madonna Ciccone
Choice quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#177. My Real Children starts quietly, then suddenly takes you on two roller-coaster rides at once, swooping dizzily through a double panorama and ending in a sort of super Sophie's Choice. A daring tour de force. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Choice quotes by George Foster
#178. Like other spiritual fruit, joy must be cultivated. #Quote by George Foster
Choice quotes by David Richo
#179. Trust in someone means that we no longer have to protect ourselves. We believe we will not be hurt or harmed by the other, at least not deliberately. We trust his or her good intentions, though we know we might be hurt by the way circumstances play out between us. We might say that hurt happens; it's a given of life. Harm is inflicted; it's a choice some people make. #Quote by David Richo
Choice quotes by Terry Eagleton
#180. Equally serious is the complaint that psychoanalysis as a medical practice is a form of oppressive social control, labelling individuals and forcing them to conform to arbitrary definitions of 'normality'. This charge is in fact more usually aimed against psychiatric medicine as a whole: as far as Freud's own views on 'normality' are concerned, the accusation is largely misdirected. Freud's work showed, scandalously, just how 'plastic' and variable in its choice of objects libido really is, how so-called sexual perversions form part of what passes as normal sexuality, and how heterosexuality is by no means a natural or self-evident fact. It is true that Freudian psychoanalysis does usually work with some concept of a sexual 'norm'; but this is in no sense given by Nature. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Choice quotes by Tricia Levenseller
#181. I want to be your first choice. And maybe I've never made it clear that I am a choice for you. I like you, and if you let me, I know I could love you. My title might not be as fancy as Kallias's, nor my pocketbook quite as deep, nor my estate quite so large.

"But my heart is bigger, Alessandra. And I would love you completely, wholly, as a woman ought to be loved. I won't hide behind shadows. I won't love you from afar. I won't only take parts of you. I want all of you. Mind, body, soul. I want to be with you. Always. #Quote by Tricia Levenseller
Choice quotes by Mark Zandi
#182. Potential home buyers have a two-step decision process. First, they determine whether they can afford to make a purchase - does their income safely cover their mortgage payment? Then they determine whether owning is a better financial choice than renting - are the costs of owning a home lower than the cost of renting it? #Quote by Mark Zandi
Choice quotes by John Yudkin
#183. Directors of a large food-manufacturing firm ( ... At one extreme (: one) said it was not his job to protect people from themselves; he was not forcing people to eat his products, and if they chose to do so at the risk of harming themselves, it was of their own free choice. #Quote by John Yudkin
Choice quotes by Chandana Roy
#184. She cannot escape marriage; it is her sacred Hindu duty, just as giving her away in marriage was her father's sacred Hindu duty. Like Indian Independence, marriage is her ultimate 'Tryst with Destiny,' and it is not in her hand to escape her preordained and compulsory fate. A marriageable daughter is the lowest common denominator in the giant scheme of things. #Quote by Chandana Roy
Choice quotes by Lee Scott
#185. And what I am trying to say to them that through our ads and through our discussions is if you don't want us in your community, that's your choice, but don't say it's because of wages. #Quote by Lee Scott
Choice quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#186. You have a choice. Live or die. Every breath is a choice. Every minute is a choice. To be or not to be. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Choice quotes by Edward Bernays
#187. We have voluntarily agreed to let an invisible government sift the data and high-spot the outstanding issues so that our field of choice shall be narrowed to practical proportions. From our leaders and the media they use to reach the public, we accept the evidence and the demarcation of issues bearing upon public questions; from some ethical teacher, be it a minister, a favorite essayist, or merely prevailing opinion, we accept a standardized code of social conduct to which we conform most of the time. #Quote by Edward Bernays
Choice quotes by Jacqueline Carey
#188. Stand at the crossroads if you will, but if you'll not choose, I'll move on without you #Quote by Jacqueline Carey
Choice quotes by Beau Taplin
#189. It's interesting to note that the most kind and courageous souls you meet in life tend to be those who've faced the most cruelty and conflict. This vicious world might sharpen us like a blade, but whether we use that power to protect people or cause them pain is always our choice. #Quote by Beau Taplin
Choice quotes by Alison Sweeney
#190. One of the things I like best about 'Biggest Loser' is being around people who are trying to make the right choices. When you feel defeated about your weight and your health, like there's no hope, and you still make the choice to fight for it, to make the change happen no matter what people say or think, that's inspiring to me. #Quote by Alison Sweeney
Choice quotes by Gail Honeyman
#191. I wasn't good at pretending, that was the thing. After what had happened in that burning house, given what went on there, I could see no point in being anything other than truthful with the world. I had, literally, nothing left to lose. But, by careful observation from the sidelines, I'd worked out that social success is often built on pretending just a little. Popular people sometimes have to laugh at things they don't find very funny, or do things they don't particularly want to, with people whose company they don't particularly enjoy. Not me. I had decided, years ago, that if the choice was between that or flying solo, then I'd fly solo. It was safer that way. Grief is the price we pay for love, so they say. The price is far too high. #Quote by Gail Honeyman
Choice quotes by Kristin Luker
#192. Pro-choice and pro-life activists live in different worlds, and the scope of their lives, as both adults and children, fortifies them in their belief that their own views on abortion are the more correct, the more moral, and more reasonable. When added to this is the fact that should 'the other side' win, one group of women will see the very real devaluation of their lives and life resources, it is not surprising that the abortion debate has generated so much heat and so little light. #Quote by Kristin Luker
Choice quotes by Jade Hart
#193. I didn't hear you," I spoke directly into his ear, hoping my voice was husky and alluring, but most likely wind-whipped and warbled.
"I said, when I kiss you, I want you to be completely wrapped up in my touch." He paused before adding, "The way you touched Nikolai last night wasn't something I wanted to see. It was hot and sexy, and I don't know where I stand." Slowing down, he muttered, "When I kiss you, I want to see desire blaze in your eyes. I want you to need me to kiss you so much you have no choice but to yield. #Quote by Jade Hart
Choice quotes by Brittany Murphy
#194. I am an eternal optimist. Being happy is a choice. And you can make that choice every day, if you want to. #Quote by Brittany Murphy
Choice quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#195. Most of my failures can be ascribed to the fact that I chose that which was 'easy' over that which was 'right'. And while it's 'right' to admit this to myself, it isn't 'easy.' So, which choice am I going to make this time? #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Choice quotes by Raphael Zernoff
#196. Awakening is a different name for raising one's frequency. It is about becoming more aware of different perspectives, from which you may choose whatever you resonate with. #Quote by Raphael Zernoff
Choice quotes by Angie Karan
#197. We aren't victims of circumstance, we are co creators of our own reality. Self absorbed people may silence you, by projecting their undesirable traits on to you. You have power. You don't have to be a silent sheep. You can roar like a lion. Expression is what the narcissist, sociopath, and the psychopath fear the most when you start to speak for your self. When you start to stand up for your self - you become your greatest version. YOU are worthy. YOU have a choice to be around people, who are nurturing to your being and help you grow. #Quote by Angie Karan
Choice quotes by G.R. Matthews
#198. Stubborness isn't a choice, it's a way of life. #Quote by G.R. Matthews
Choice quotes by Kirsty Eagar
#199. If there's one thing I can't stand, it's the wounded male ego. It's as though Hollywood thinks I've got some choice in whether I like him or not. As if. I can't change who I am. #Quote by Kirsty Eagar
Choice quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#200. Cynthia had been on friendly terms with an eccentric librarian called Porlock who in the last years of his dusty life had been engaged in examining old books for miraculous misprints such as the substitution of "1" for the second "h" in the word "hither." Contrary to Cynthia, he cared nothing for the thrill of obscure predictions; all he sought was the freak itself, the chance that mimics choice, the flaw that looks like a flower; and Cynthia, a much more perverse amateur of misshapen or illicitly connected words, puns, logogriphs, and so on, had helped the poor crank to pursue a quest that in the light of the example she cited struck me as statistically insane. ("The Vane Sisters") #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
