A Quote by H. Van Anderson on character, choice, learning, mind, questions, and path

The moment a question comes to your mind, see yourself mentally taking hold of it and disposing of it. In that moment is your choice made. Thus you learn to take the path to the right. Thus you learn to become the decider and not the vacillator. Thus you build character.

A Quote by Greg Anderson on change, choice, experience, life, and power

Although our inattention can contribute to our lack of total well-being, we also have the power to choose positive behaviors and responses. In that choice we change our every experience of life!

A Quote by Greg Anderson on choice, direction, emotion, experience, feeling, laws, and time

You can't expect to prevent negative feelings altogether. And you can't expect to experience positive feelings all the time. The Law of Emotional Choice directs us to acknowledge our feelings but also to refuse to get stuck in the negative ones.

A Quote by Franz Kafka on choice, listening, needs, and world

You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait. Do not even wait, be quite still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.

A Quote by Franklin D. Richards on choice, conscience, country, exercise, good, government, and secrets

We are indeed fortunate to live in this favored country where we can participate in the selection of our governmental leaders and register our choice in a secret ballot. The selection of proper leaders is extremely important in maintaining good government. I encourage all of you who are eligible to vote to exercise your franchise according to the dictates of your conscience.

A Quote by Sir Francis Bacon on choice, confusion, force, learning, men, understanding, vulgarity, and words

It is by discourse that men associate; and words are imposed according to the apprehension of the vulgar. And therefore the ill and unfit choice of words wonderfully obsesses the understanding. Nor do the definitions or explanations, wherewith in some things learned men are wont to guard and defend themselves, by any means set the matter right. But words plainly force and overrule the understanding, and throw all into confusion, and lead men away into innumerable and inane controversies and fancies.

Francis Bacon (1561 - 1626)
