Choice Quotes
(20+ quotes)

Choice quotes help us understand that everything in life includes a level of ‘choice.’  When things happen we have no control over, we do have the power to choose our attitude about it.

Do you at times choose to ignore certain information? What big choices are you facing? Is there a decision you need to make that you feel unsure of?  Choose to give yourself more time to mull it over. Or choose to ask someone you trust for their opinion. You always have more choices than you think you have!  Remember - every choice you make results in certain consequences.  If you want different results, start making different choices.  If you want more joy, start choosing more joy thoughts and actions. Choices (conscious and unconscious), precede all actions.  When you are faced with the choice to procrastinate or take action – make the choice to act now!

All men and women are born, live, suffer and die; what distinguishes us one from another is our dreams, whether they be dreams about worldly or unworldly things, and what we do to make them come about…We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch, the country of our birth, or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing...But within this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we live.
Joseph Epstein

Our lives are a sum total of the choices we have made.

It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
J. K. Rowling

There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under the jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I can read and eat and study. I can choose how I'm going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life-whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts.
Elizabeth Gilbert

When you reach an obstacle, turn it into an opportunity. You have the choice. You can overcome and be a winner, or you can allow it to overcome you and be a loser. The choice is yours and yours alone. Refuse to throw in the towel. Go that extra mile that failures refuse to travel. It is far better to be exhausted from success than to be rested from failure.
Mary Kay Ash

You rarely have time for everything you want in this life, so you have to make choices, and hopefully your choices can come from a deep sense of who you are.

At any moment you have a choice that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it.

Choice is your greatest power. It is an even greater power than love, because you must first choose to be a loving person.

Every choice before you represents the universe inviting you to remember who you are and what you want.
Alan Cohen

Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
Denis Waitley

My will shall shape my future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force: I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze. My choice, my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny.
Elaine Maxwell

We are the choices we make.
Meryl Streep

We need to teach the next generation of children from day one that they are responsible for their lives. Mankind's greatest gift, also its greatest curse, is that we have free choice. We can make our choices built from love or from fear.
