Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.

June Jordan

Pessimist: One who, when he has the choice of two evils, chooses both.

Oscar Wilde

Peter Not everyone is meant to make a difference. But for me, the choice to lead an ordinary life is no longer an option.

Spider-Man

Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.

William A. Foster

Reason also is choice.

John Milton

Remember: the past was left behind, the present is a choice and the future is never certain.

Cristian Andrei Nica

Reputation and Character are not one and the same thing. They are radically different. Reputation is what others think of you, while Character is what God knows about you. People can manipulate the thinking of others, but they cannot hide or change the truth that is known to God, the Supreme Power. Whenever you come across a dilemma, and you have to make a choice from various options, you must think of the Truth first before thinking about the Reputation. Truth will always build your Character, set you free, and bring you closer to Supreme Power.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Salvation is from our side a choice, from the divine side it is a seizing upon, an apprehending, a conquest by the Most High God. Our accepting and willing are reactions rather than actions. The right of determination must always remain with God.

A. W. Tozer

Science would be ruined if (like sports) it were to put competition above everything else, and if it were to clarify the rules of competition by withdrawing entirely into narrowly defined specialties. The rare scholars who are nomads-by-choice are essential to the intellectual welfare of the settled disciplines.

Benoit Mandelbrot

Self-respect is the best and greatest gift you'll give to yourself. The self-respect builds the strongest self-control, self-dignity, self-discipline, and highest self-esteem that enables you to never settle for anything less, and importantly, to walk away from anything or anyone that undervalues you, and treats you as a second choice. Never forget that you don't need anyone who doesn’t treat you with dignity and respect. Lead your life the best way, powered with Self-respect; and the world will respect you.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Suppose that we are wise enough to learn and know -- and yet not wise enough to control our learning and knowledge, so that we use it to destroy ourselves? Even if that is so, knowledge remains better than ignorance. It is better to know -- even if the knowledge endures only for the moment that comes before destruction -- than to gain eternal life at the price of a dull and swinish lack of comprehension of a universe that swirls unseen before us in all its wonder. That was the choice of Achilles, and it is mine, too.

Isaac Asimov

Surrounding people whom a person likes is not really getting ones who he is like character wise as individuals of same nature befriend by default and not by design of own choice.

Anuj Somany

That man can destroy life is just as miraculous a feat as that he can create it, for life is the miracle, the inexplicable. In the act of destruction, man sets himself above life he transcends himself as a creature. Thus, the ultimate choice for a man, inasmuch as he is driven to transcend himself, is to create or to destroy, to love or to hate.

Erich Fromm

The best way of travel, however, if you aren't in any hurry at all, if you don't care where you are going, if you don't like to use your legs, if you don't want to be annoyed at all by any choice of directions, is in a balloon. In a balloon, you can decide only when to start, and usually when to stop. The rest is left entirely to nature.

William Sherman Pene du Bois

The birthplace of success for each person is in his Inner-Consciousness. The Inner-Consciousness will use whatever it is given. If constructive thoughts are planted positive outcomes will be the result. Plant the seeds of failure and failure will follow. And since the only real freedom a person has is the choice of what thoughts he will feed to his Inner-Consciousness he is totally responsible for the outcomes he gets.

Sidney Madwed

The difference between a good man and a bad man is the choice of cause.

William James

The difficulty in life is the choice.

George Moore

The elective system ... offered a bewildering freedom of choice, leaving some graduates with the impression that they had nibbled at dozens of canaps of knowledge and never had their fill.

Ted Morgan

The forces of good and evil are working within and around me, I must choose, and in a free will universe I do have a choice.

Sovereign

The future is bright/colourful. Moreover, it's at your fingertips. But mind you, the choice/decision you make daily surely determines how bright/colourful your own future will become. Therefore, you've got to be mindful of your daily choices/decisions.

Emeasoba George

The individual choice of garnishment of a burger can be an important point to the consumer in this day when individualism is an increasingly important thing to people.

Donald N. Smith, president of Burger King

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.

Charles R. Swindoll

The man or woman who is wholly or joyously surrendered to Christ can't make a wrong choice--any choice will be the right one.

A. W. Tozer
