choice

A Quote by Thomas Jefferson on choice, exercise, freedom, and possibility

What is freedom? Freedom is the right to choose: the right to create for oneself the alternatives of choice. Without the possibility of choice and the exercise of choice a man is not a man but a member, an instrument, a thing.

Thomas Jefferson (1743 - 1826)

A Quote by Ben Ames Williams on acceptance, business, choice, life, and meetings

Life is the acceptance of responsibilities or their evasion, it is a business of meeting obligations or avoiding them. To every man the choice is continually being offered, and by the manner of his choosing you may fairly measure him.

Ames Williams (1889 - ?)

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.

A Quote by Alan Grant on choice, despair, evil, hell, kindness, magic, and reality

I don't know where hell is . . . another dimension, perhaps, or another plane of reality. As for getting there . . . it's a choice between sinning and being tricked by demons! It's a plane of evil . . . despair . . . and magic of the foulest kind

A Quote by Adrienne Cecile Rich on belief, choice, language, life, respect, soul, and words

I believe that words can help us move or keep us paralysed, and that our choices of language and verbal tone have something - a great deal - to do with how we live our lives and whom we end up speaking with and hearing; and that we can deflect words by trivialization, of course, but also by ritualized respect, or we can let them enter our souls and mix with the juices of our minds.

A Quote by Abraham Flexner on borrowing, choice, civilization, education, nations, and war

Nations have recently been led to borrow billions for war; no nation has ever borrowed largely for education. Probably, no nation is rich enough to pay for both war and civilization. We must make our choice; we cannot have both.

Abraham Flexner (1866 - 1959)
