Every person has free choice. Free to obey or disobey the Natural Laws. Your choice determines the consequences. Nobody ever did, or ever will, escape the consequences of his choices.
Every person, all the events of your life are there because you have drawn them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you.
Every single moment of your life you must choose from a number of alternatives. What you choose determines where you will end up.
Every street has two sides, the shady side and the sunny. When two men shake hands and part, mark which of the two takes the sunny side; he will be the younger man of the two.
Everything can be taken away from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedom — to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
For what human ill does dawn not seem to be alternative?
He that cannot decidedly say, ''No,'' when tempted to evil, is on the highway to ruin. He loses the respect even of those who would tempt him, and becomes but the pliant tool and victim of their evil designs.
He who chooses the beginning of a road chooses the place it leads to. It is the means that determine the end.
I am not a sound bite person. I prefer to run at the mouth.
I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me, seemed insufficient for the day.
I have discovered that we may be in some degree whatever character we choose. Besides, practice forms a man to anything.
I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: Therefore choose life. [Deuteronomy 30:19]
I knew that I did not have to buy into society's notion that I had to be handsome and healthy to be happy. I was in charge of my ''spaceship'' and it was my up, my down. I could choose to see this situation as a setback or as a starting point. I chose to begin life again.
I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.
I think there is a choice possible to us at any moment, as long as we live. But there is no sacrifice. There is a choice, and the rest falls away. Second choice does not exist. Beware of those who talk about sacrifice.
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
If I were going to convert to any religion I would probably choose Catholicism because it at least has female saints and the Virgin Mary.
If there are things you don't like in the world you grew up in, make your own life different.
If this life be not a real fight, in which something is eternally gained… it is no better than a game of private theatricals from which one may withdraw at will.
