120 Choices Quotes To Help You Make You The Right Decision

Choices

Your choices determine your tomorrow. They form your destiny. Life will present you with two or more paths and it's up to you to decide the one you will take. That decision will either make you or break you.

Sometimes you will make a choice thinking that it's the best one, only to realize when you are too far down the line that you messed up. Some choices end up being our biggest regrets.

You may wish you made a different decision and took another path. But it's never too late. You can always choose a different path when you realize that you made a mistake with the first one.

You may feel that it's the end if time has gone by. For example, if you walked out of a relationship and regret it later but your ex has already moved on. Or if you left a job for a better-paying one only to lose it soon after, yet you cannot go back to the old job.

Some choices close doors for us. We may wish that it was possible to go back and knock on that door again. However, if the door has already closed, the only option at that point is to look straight ahead.

Pick up the lessons you have learned, dust yourself up, and keep walking. Even if you regret your choice, it put you on a path where you had to learn things the hard way. And that's okay. At least you will not repeat the same mistakes.

Our collection of choices quotes will give you exceptional wisdom about your choices in life. Life is a matter of choices and your destiny lies in the choices you make today. What you choose today begins shaping the kind of tomorrow you will have. So choose wisely and think about your decisions first.

What we have lived Remains indecipherable. & yet we remain. & still, we write. & so, we write. Watch us move above the fog Like a promontory at dusk. Shall this leave us bitter? Or better? Grieve. Then choose.

If kids have the opportunity to come together to get to know one another, they can judge for themselves who they want their friends to be. All children should have that choice. We, as adults, shouldn't make those choices for children. That's how racism starts.

Men are free to choose whether they wish to live for God or against Him and therefore to opt for heaven or for hell. We must recognize that God has made everything to make man happy, and in accordance with this plan, God asks man to obey the laws that He has established; but God has also given man the ability to refuse this truth. This is the situation in which all of us are placed.

Mom, I’m real, a person. A living part of this world, not just a prop. But being part of the world means putting in effort. And that’s what I intend to do – to try. I’m well aware the result may not be something that you appreciate or agree with but at least it’ll be something I can be proud of. So please, don’t make these decisions for me. Don’t decide what my life is going to be before I’ve even begun it! I plan on going to college but I’ll choose the schools I’ll be applying to, not you.

You are not a back-up plan. You are worth more than someone’s second choice. You can’t force yourself to stop caring for someone, but you can tell yourself that you deserve better. Never settle to be someone’s second best. Raise your standards and choose to be with someone who will treat you with the same respect and consideration you would treat them. You can’t expect to be someone else’s priority if you aren’t your own.

When your world is completely flattened, you have no choice but to start over from the ground up. It can take over a decade. Anyone that watched from afar would call this a tragic catastrophe. I now know one of life’s greatest secrets; destruction breeds growth.

I took my bottle and went to my bedroom. I undressed down to my shorts and went to bed. Nothing was ever in tune. People just blindly grabbed at whatever there was: communism, health foods, zen, surfing, ballet, hypnotism, group encounters, orgies, biking, herbs, Catholicism, weight-lifting, travel, withdrawal, vegetarianism, India, painting, writing, sculpting, composing, conducting, backpacking, yoga, copulating, gambling, drinking, hanging around, frozen yogurt, Beethoven, Bach, Buddha, Christ, TM, H, carrot juice, suicide, handmade suits, jet travel, New York City, and then it all evaporated and fell apart. People had to find things to do while waiting to die. I guess it was nice to have a choice. I took my choice. I raised the fifth of vodka and drank it straight. The Russians knew something.

So instead of naming me Harmony or Mary, they agreed to let me decide... And then on my seventh birthday, my present was that I got to pick my name. Cool, huh? So I spent the whole day looking at my dad's globe for a really cool name. And so my first choice was Chad, like the country in Africa. But then my dad said that was a boy's name, so I picked Alaska.

It is an interesting law of romance that a truly strong woman will choose a strong man who disagrees with her over a weak one who goes along. Strength demands intelligence, intelligence demands stimulation, and weakness is boring. It is better to find a partner you can contend with for a lifetime than one who accommodates you because he doesn't really care.

Sleepless nights lead only to crazed mornings—oneiric images, emotions, stories, desires, sensations arise when they choose and stay according to their own codes. The subconscious will not be denied. Dreams that should have been morph and manifest themselves in tricks of the mind: minor hallucinations play out before the eyes in the harsh light of day, they enter the ears from the inside out; wild thoughts lead away from reason. Disassociated, unprotected, not itself or too much its most base, worst self, the mind cannot be trusted. Self-skullduggery.
