A Quote by Malachi Ritscher on suicide, martyr, choice, and war

Here is the statement I want to make: if I am required to pay for your barbaric war, I choose not to live in your world.  I refuse to finance the mass murder of innocent civilians, who did nothing to threaten our country... If one death can atone for anything, in any small way, to say to the world: I apologize for what we have done to you, I am ashamed for the mayhem and turmoil caused by my country.

Without fear I go now to God.  Your future is what you will choose today.

Malachi Ritscher

A Quote by Chris Fenwick on einstein, choice, and richard bach

Character of Rene speaking on our choice in the matter – how our thinking literally creates reality.

“Einstein once said, ‘The problem will not be solved by the same minds that created it.’  I always thought that meant that different people needed to come in to solve our problems.  But what about our personal problems?  Someone else can’t necessarily come in and solve them for us.   I,  …  realized that it isn’t someone else’s mind that is needed, it is a change of mind that is needed.    We can change our own minds!  We have the choice to relinquish our past and choose a new set of possibilities.  All we have to do is change our minds.  Einstein also knew it wouldn’t be easy. … He said, ‘Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
Character of Fritz speaking on our choice in the matter – how our thinking literally creates reality.

“We become accustomed to what we believe reality to be and we are overwhelmingly convinced that we are limited in our ability to make that reality any different.  We must give up these convictions and limitations.  I think it was Richard Bach who said, ‘Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they are yours.’”

A Quote by Avram Noam Chomsky on choice, freedom, hope, and being the change

If you assume that there's no hope, you guarantee that there will be no hope. If you assume that there is an instinct for freedom, that there are opportunities to change things, there's a chance you may contribute to making a better world. That's your choice.

Noam Chomsky (1928 -)

A Quote by Warren on decision, choice, responsibility, love, and heart

Love is active.  It requires choice, decision and carries responsibility.  To be in love is to actively affirm your choices and decision and to accept the responsibility of caring for another's heart.

A Quote by Elizabeth Berg on rain, miracle, coziness, gratefulness, choice, window, and not have to feel

Outside, the rain sometimes comes down so hard, we have to talk louder, and it feels like a miracle that the roof holds.  It makes for a coziness and a gratefulness, too, that you have the choice to not be out in it.  You can sit at the table and look out the window and not have to feel what you see.

A Quote by Gail Pursell Elliott on filter, filters, viewpoints, perspectives, potential, choice, choose, and choosing

Conclusions and perspectives we share about people, or any situation we encounter tell others as much about us as they do what we are describing. What we notice must have a point of resonance within us or we wouldn't notice it at all. We don't have to abandon our points of view to expand our understanding. When we limit our perspectives, we limit our opportunities to be all that we are intended to be.
