A Quote by Robert Anson Heinlein on stranger, inspire, choice, possibility, personal challange, strange land, and robert heinlein

There comes a time in the life of every human when he or she must decide to risk "his life, his fortune, and his sacred honor" on an outcome dubious. Those who fail the challenge are merely overgrown children, can never be anything else.

Jill Boardman encountered her personal challenge —  and accepted it — at 3:47 that afternoon. (UC)

A Quote by Werner Erhard on expect, expectations, choose, choice, and choices

Life is a ripoff when you expect to get what you want.
Life works when you choose what you got.
Actually what you got is what you chose.
To move on, choose it.

A Quote by Michael Josephson on life, life that matters, choice, choose, love, encouragement, encourage, inspire, inspiration, death, and dying

A Life That Matters

Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end. There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days. All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else. Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance. It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed. Your grudges, resentments, frustrations and jealousies will finally disappear.

So too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire. The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away. It won't matter where you came from or what side of the tracks you lived on at the end. It won't matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant. Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.

So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured? What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built; not what you got, but what you gave. What will matter is not your success, but your significance.

What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught. What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example. What will matter is not your competence, but your character. What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many will feel a lasting loss when you're gone. What will matter is not your memories, but the memories that live in those who loved you. What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what.

Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident. It's not a matter of circumstance but of choice. Choose to live a life that matters. It really matters!

A Quote by Jacqueline Carey on love, loss, choice, choose, and choosing

Love, child!  What else?  You will find it and lose it, again and again.  And with each finding and each loss, you will become more than before.  What you make of it is yours to choose...

A Quote by Peter McWilliams on change, improvement, and choice

To change rules that are already in place takes time, energy, perseverance and a lot of hard work.  You only have so many of these assets at your disposal, so choose with care the rules you want to change.

A Quote by Tracy Thompson on suicide, suicidal, option, choice, options, and choices

I don't know when the idea of suicide first occurred to me. In some ways, it had been in the back of my mind for years. Yet, oddly, I would never have thought of it as an option. It was the perceived lack of options-the final, unacceptable solution to a grave and insoluble dilemma. I had always thought of it in the same way: If all else fails, if I have nowhere else to turn, I can do this.
